They want a divorce but Denver wants to jump straight into a new relationship, so they still live together.

The WAC indicated that they might rescind their requirement for a school to have football, but hasn't officially announced or voted yet to do so IIRC.

I think they'll hold off as long as possible. THEN, I think there are some schools they'll consider before Denver.

Well, they'd start with WCC schools, and that won't happen. After that, well, stay tuned.

The Mountain West should allow all-sports-but-football membership. With CSU, Wyoming, and Air Force already in the league, Denver would have instant rivalries and good competition in the other sports.

A conference that's "on the cusp" like the Mountain West does not need to dabble in non-football members... and does not need to oversaturate one region like Denver would with the Front Range.

Lots of people in Boise would cringe at the thought of admitting Denver into the WAC, unless they knew the Mountain West was about to admit Boise State. I think the fan bases of nearly every WAC school (05-06 version), even if we're talking about stalwarts like Idaho and New Mexico State, would hesitate greatly regarding Denver. However, I'm not so sure that the WAC taking Denver doesn't have some merit. Even more interesting if such an addition suddenly gave rise to a far western hockey league (look, Ma, big dreams, no drugs!!)

The best bet would for Denver to join Mid-Con. Along with North Dakota St and South Dakota St. It seems more than likely Northern Colorado will be in the Big Sky soon.

Mid-Con splits into two divisions:

Western Division
Denver
North Dakota St
Oral Roberts
South Dakota St
Southern Utah
UMKC

Eastern Division
Cenetary
Chicago State
IUPUI
Oakland
Valpo
Western Illinois

Its a shame that the Mid-Con added Cenetary instead of IPFW. Replace Ceneatary with IPFW and that setup would be pretty darn good geographically.

I think that everyone is waiting for the new Denver AD to get on board before making a move. I think that you may well see Denver go to either the WAC or Mountain West as non-football members for the fall of 2006. It looks like nothing will happen this year. One long shot would be that the West Coast Conference, our orginal first choice, decides to expand and take Denver and Pacific.

I think Denver HAS BEEN trying to cajole the WAC to accept them.

The real indication that Denver cares enough to ENTICE the WAC would be a program to improve their basketball profile (fundraising campaign, high profile coach). Where's the beef?

Nothing Denver does could entice the WCC, save perhaps for moving the entire campus to Palm Springs.

This is the beginning of what Denver is doing to show that their Men's BB program is Big Time.
They are heavly involved with a new major holiday tournment that will bring big time BB to Denver. Th Colorado Classic is the first step. It is a new major tournment held at the Pepsi Center in Denver over Thanksgiving. This year it will have CU vs. St. Mary's and Denver vs. Colorado State. The article states that the promotors are talking with Alabama, Gonzaga, North Carolina, UCLA, Arizona, Louisville, and Connecticut, just to name a few, who have expressed interest participating in future Colorado Classic's.
