Covered this here:
http://news.collegesportsinfo.com/2009/ ... -west.html

Could be a trickle down effect. If Fullerton adds football, there would be 3 members with UC Davis and Cal Poly. The Big West could then pull rank and sponsor football, inviting SUU, UND and USD as affiliate members.

Sac St. might consider a move from the Big Sky to the Big West if the conference were to sponsor football. Got to think the Sac St. admins would prefer all-sports being in a California league rather than having to travel to Utah, Montana, Arizona, Idaho, Washington for all varsity sports.

Does the Big Sky share football playoff revenue, or is that even an issue with the FCS playoffs? I know going to a conference without an automatic bid for the basketball tournament is a virtual death wish, but would it be a dealbreaker in FCS football?

There's also that odd chance that the Big Sky could invite one or more football-playing members of the Great West Conference to replace Sacramento State, which would take the Big West football league below six schools.

Actually, if (and a BIG if) Sac St. ever did leave the Big Sky for Big West...and the Big West sponsored football, the lineup would be:
Big West: Sac St, UC Davis, Cal Poly, Fullerton, *UND, *USD, *Southern Utah

That's 7 schools. So even if the Big sky replaced Sac St. with Southern Utah, the Big West would still be at 6.

The trickle down could still effect the Big West: If Sac St. left the Big sky, they might look to NDSU and/or SDSU to replace them. The MVC might then go after UND and/or USD.

So there are still many "what ifs". But who is to say the Big West wouldn't just go with the 4 schools, ala the ACC in lacrosse. Could happen.

What is the story with Cal State - Bakersfield ?
When do they complete their transition to D-1 ?
Do they have a pending application to join the Big West ?

It seems as though they've been hanging out there for some time....
Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks.

CS-Bakersfield becomes a full NCAA Division I member when the upcoming 2010-11 academic year starts in the fall. They still want to be in the Big West, but I haven't heard anything new lately.

The Big West is a perfect landing spot for SJSU's non-FB sports.

But I submit that Andy Katz is crazy if he suggests that this California "bus league" (with CUS's having limited travel budgets) are going to be excited about suddenly being burdened with travel to:

Oahu,
Idaho,
Utah,
Las Cruces, NM
Ruston, LA
for "non-revenue sports"

ARE YOU KIDDING ME ????
The Big West schools are having to trim sports right now, due to budget limitations.


If I was San Jose State, I WOULD be making some inquiries with the Big West.
The other schools should seriously be talking to the WCC (Hawaii and BYU), Big Sky (Idaho, Utah St., NM St.), or Sun-Belt (La. Tech).

Biggest Winner if Cal Poly moves to the Big Sky...Cal State Bakersfield! Without Cal Poly, Big West down to the practical minimum of 8 with a wildcard in Cal Davis whose departure would put them at the NCAA minimum of 7. If Cal Poly leaves, Cal State Bakersfield is a shoe in to get their long awaited Big West invite, in my opinion
