Then all members except the two most East and West schools.

I thought NMSU was offered full status a while back?

No it was out to vote and rejected before app and geo south were in and WKU was out

They came a few votes short after WKU and a couple East schools said no.

TV markets and broadcasting rights. MAC just lost a large bargaining chip with the elimination of New England.

Apparently a chip worth less the $67,000 per team that they are giving up by splitting CFP 13 ways.

Wouldn't you think they are setting up a move to the AAC? I mean if UConn wants them, it's a slam-dunk.

RE: UMass leaving MAC.
My guess is either the MAC is about to invite 2 all sports or we have the last spot for FBS team and JMU is gonna have to make up their mind fast.

But the MAC could e about to snatch up JMU and Liberty/MSU Which would put us in a bit if a spot.

I get the TV market thing, but I just don't see UMass to the SBC. I mean SBC from Georgia to NMex to Idaho to Mass? Last year some on here said LU and JMU stretched the SBC footprint too far.

I hope you aren't serious.

Unfortunately, I am very serious.

Makes perfect sense.

Can add NMSU all sports, add UMass football only. Neatly wrapped up.
I am going to invest in airport conference room snacks and catering. 2015-16 is going to be a great year for airport meetings.

The question is whether the AAC wants them. What the MAC has done is essentially say you have two years to figure out where you are going.
