I look at this, think of the other sports, and shake my head. Of course the WAC as is wasn't going to last. And I'd argue a partnership with the Big Sky that keeps the conference going and, with a few other changes, leads to this...

Denver
Grand Canyon
New Mexico State
Northern Arizona
Northern Colorado
Southern Utah
Texas El Paso
Utah Valley

(Somehow, you lure Denver from the Summit and trade UTRGV for UTEP... one would like to think there was enough money in the world... sigh)

Also

Eastern Washington
Idaho
Idaho State
Montana
Montana State
North Dakota
Portland State
Sacramento State
Seattle U
Weber State

(Yet I'm accounting so much for the stubbornness of North Dakota that I don't move them into the Summit in Denver's place)

...and then the college sports gods foist enough money on UC San Diego and, check this out, UC Merced that Bakersfield can finally get into the Big West.

There's gotta be a better way. It probably starts with designated football-only conferences below the P5 so that people can play prestige while having compact and sane conferences for everything else. Even then, sigh.

Yeah, cross UTEP off that list. They ain't leaving C-USA for the WAC/Big Sky
