I really just was going to post to say...

Fun fact I just learned. The WCC has been so stable that they didn't have member dues. The commisioner decided there should be a token gesture, so now each school pays $100 annually.


But reading some of the older posts with regard to Pacific.

There isn't an issue with the California/non-California divisional problems. Pacific was added mainly for travel partners to make scheduling easier than it was with nine schools and three groups of three (SoCal, NorCal, Other).

Travel partners in the 10-team WCC will be:
USF-SCU; PAC-SMC; GONZ-PORT, LMU-PEP; BYU-USD. One long trip, three short ones for everyone (and Port-Gonz is a medium sized one).

If they add Denver and Seattle (who aren't quite there yet in a competitive/facility regard), they simply go with NO divisions!
To figure out who plays home/homes with each other, you simply make a list of what makes sense and then add in some other games for travel partner purposes.


and a BYU/Den pairing, SEA/GONZ with a long POR/USD one

Yeah, for most sports, that makes sense.

But as far as scheduling goes, you don't WANT to have a California division and a non-California division, becuase divisions dictate scheduling and your marquee WCC games are Gonzaga vs Saint Mary's.

Instead of letting divisions dictate, you go:
BYU: DEN, GONZ (1 NorCal, 1 SoCal, PORT or SEA)
DEN: BYU, SEA, POR (1 NorCal, 1 SoCal)
GONZ: SMC, BYU, POR, SEA (1 SoCal)
SEA: GONZ, POR, DEN (1 SoCal, 1 NorCal or BYU)
PORT: SEA, GONZ, DEN (1 SoCal, 1 NorCal or BYU)
SMC: GONZ, USF, SCU, PAC (one other school)
USF: SMC, SCU, PAC (1 So Cal, 1 NW/Mountain)
SCU: SMC, USF, PAC (1 So Cal, 1 NW/Mountain)
PAC: USF, SMC, SCU (1 So Cal, 1 NW/Mountain)
LMU: PEP, USD, (1-2 NorCal, 1 NW/Mountain)
PEP: LMU, USD, (1-2 NorCal, 1 NW/Mountain)
USD: LMU, PEP, (1-2 NorCal, 1 NW/Mountain)
