Damn SJ, you're up there, you should know that BW has all the UCD sports and the Sky only has a few of them. It won't happen. longest BW trip minus Hawaii is around 7 hrs, In the sky all but Sac St. are a lot further.


Yeah I know it's increased travel but with divisions it could be do-able. In a divisional split you'd have UCD, Sac St, E Wash, Port St, N. Arizona, Idaho, and Idaho St.

If you combine trips to E Wash and Idaho that makes that a little easier. Plus they gain Sac St which you and I know is a big rival of theirs while dropping the Hawaii trips (though those are subsidized). It is a bit of a step down in prestige I guess.

Anyway just throwing it out there. I was surprised that I hadn't noticed the Big West is almost completely a So Cal conference.


I get you but UCD has lots of CA, BW sports that the Sky doesn't offer like Surfing, Hackysack, tanning, H2O Polo, yachting, etc

With Pacific gone, it's probably going to be Davis and Hawaii as travel partners. Makes sense to make ONE plane trip for the SoCal schools. Fly to Sacramento, fly to Honolulu, fly to LA (Or Honolulu, Sac, LA).
