That could work. 9 game conference slate 1 money game, 1 home and home and an FCS rent a win.

We make the same per team from the NCAA if we have 10 football members and 12 football members. In other words, provided our Presidents are not idiots, it would be really hard for an addition to hurt us.

I think some people don't realize how large our country is. Amherst and Moscow may seem equally distant from, say, Statesboro, but there's a whole lot more United States to cover to get to Idaho and than Massachusetts.

Its more about how we are laid out geographically. The Northeast is a much smaller strip of land than the Northwest is...meaning it is always far easier to travel Northeast than Northwest.

One way to look at it is that while Arkansas would appear to be near the center of the US because of its proximity to the Mississippi River. The reality is the Geographic Center of the US is in Lebanon, KS, which is really close to the Nebraska State line.

UMass makes a good contingency plan, but I'd rather wait on Missouri State, James Madison, or Eastern Kentucky. If the Sun Belt wants to drop Idaho, it could at then humanely offer a scheduling alliance for both the Vandals and Minutemen. Idaho and UMass could start with 5 straight non-SBC games, play some combination of Army/BYU, and play each other the last week of the season. That would leave 5 games for each of them in Sun Belt play.

Can we trade Idaho for UMass?
