Could it be possible that NMSU and Idaho have set up some type of agreement with the SBC to include any WAC fledgling fb programs? And once there are enough...they will all leave to restart WAC fb?
So, that NMSU and Idaho wouldn't ever be considered for SBC full membership and would be considered just temporary until further notice.
And the SBC...kind of sponsors a conference that will be beneath them, in the future.
That won't happen, you'd need 6 more western fcs move up schools to be invited for fb only to the SBC. Then after the 2 year provisional period, the 6 schools, Idaho would have to become full members of the WAC, then the WAC would have to petition the NCAA to allow an 11th conference back into the FBS. I bet the other 10 fbs conf vote no, why split the 1 mill per school up to 12 w/ a whole other conf? They won't. You won't get 6 FCS school to take all those risks in the hopes of a slim to none outcome.
Maybe it won't happen on a FBS perspective, but how about re-starting fb, but as a FCS conference? It would be a great competition rival to the Big Sky schools.
