These schools will have FBS football?

And, Carbola, I went to the Rose-Hulman tailgate at the Indy 500 a few years ago. Good times.

There are a lot of rumors about New Mexico State and Western Kentucky moving to Conference USA. Granted they are just rumors but I could see that happening.

Charlotte is currently building their stadium. They have never had a football team and that will be their first season.


Old Dominion is moving up from FCS is my understanding. Actually, looking at their schedule, they only lost 1 game this season to Villanova so they can't be all that bad.

Nice. Glad to hear you had a good time since we tend to "nerd out" around each other.

Mountain West should adopt the WAC name.

Not as a potshot at the league, but because the WAC is a historical college football conference with a lot of history in the sport. Mountain West was formed in 1999.

The main problem is that the WAC still exists, they juts no longer sponsor football. Other sports will still exists under the WAC.

Maybe the Big East should just call themselves Conference USA?
