UTSA rumored to join the MWC
Sports writer JJ Perez, UTSA insider, tweets UTSA will be joining the MWC and the story will be out soon.

Any UTSA folks familiar with him?

This really connects the dots. I assumed they were in deep discussions with the MW when they turned down the AAC. It’s a more stable league.

He hasn't Tweeted that. You must have seen a spoof account.

It doesn't make sense why the Mountain West would be rushing to expand anyways unless it was for Gonzaga, SMU, or Tulsa.

If the MWC thought that the AAC wanted UTSA, they might strike first.

They announced a home and home today with Air Force. I don’t think they would schedule a home and home with a future conference team.

I don’t think UTSA is going anywhere. Sounds like they have serious budget issues for athletics and can’t increase the athletics budget to a level that either the AAC or Mountain West would deem acceptable. If so I doubt either the AAC or Mountain West wants them.

Air Force wants a Texas presence and SMU isn't paying 10 million to leave the AAC.

Actually, that's not totally unusual. The non-conference game becomes a conference game like it typically would with similar movements. Plus,, the Air Force admin has made it no secret that they want to play more games in Texas. Air Force Academy considers exposure in Texas as vital to not just their sports teams but also their officer recruitment as well.

I get it. Just think the timing is weird. They announce a home and home and the “insider” tweeting it out on the same day is a little strange to me.

The Mountain West's lowest budget is San Jose State at $32 Million. Most of their budgets are around $40 Million, and even Boise's would be the lowest in the AAC even though it's $50 Million. UTSA absolutely can afford membership in the Mountain West.

White smoke is coming from the RACE. Looks like we’re heading to the Mountain West. Article up on the site soon.

I would be happy for UTSA or any other CUSA Texas team who gets invited to the MWC.

Yeah. That appears to be a fake handle spoofing JJ Perez.

Here is the real account.

That's why we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves unless poop confirms it first.

Wow. That's a lot of followers for a fake account. Usually when you see that they have like 4 followers. Basically 20% of the people following this guy are following a fake account.
