I know UCSD has their hearts set on the Big West (so does Cal St. - Bakersfield), but if the main objective is to get to D-1, the WAC would take them in a heartbeat !
Might be a decent interim option....

...but it would be a budget killer. The travel expenses in the WAC would be insane, with pretty much no TV money coming in to the schools. Flights to Seattle, Edinburg, Texas (is there even a decent airport there?) and Chicago would be crazy expensive for the Olympic sports. Meanwhile, 7 of the Big West schools are in southern California. 4 Big West schools are less than 100 miles from San Diego.


The airport in is McAllen about 15 miles away. Unless they charter a plane they'll fly to Dallas or Houston and hop on a commuter plane to get there.

TSU needs to "just say NO" to the WAC idea.

It's so unstable, it could be on the way to dissolving by the time TSU is urged to apply (this June).

Southland Conference makes sense (plus they sponsor FCS football).
TSU and UT-RGV could be a package deal to the Southland.
