RE: WAC FBS - Sooner rather than later!
Two things:

1. Conferences like the MWC and SBC do not want any more mouths to feed. They are not going to pluck WAC FBS schools just to prevent a WAC FBS conference. In fact, I'm sure they would welcome another western based FBS conference to able to schedule with.

2. The new CFP timing has no bearing. If the CFP did not include all FBS conferences, they would be in violation of antitrust laws. There is even a possibility that the WAC's FBS golden ticket would ensure they are part of any CFP agreement. I don't see this as an issue.

1. Sure they would, assuming one of the WAC TX FB universities was deemed "worthy". MW wants a TX presence again, their front range schools need it (recruiting, TV money). Also preventing an FBS WAC from being a part of the new contract means more money for them (and the other FBS conferences).

2. Agree, which is why I don't get why everyone is all tied up on the new contract timing. The lawyers would sort all that out and I think it would favor any "new" FBS conference that would come about.
