They would probably be agreeable. MAC at 12. sB at 12. Split the fee and give UMass a 6 year agreement with a 3 year renew/cancel notice after 3 years. That gives UMass 4 extra years to get thier stuff together and allows the SB to dump them easily if a good prospect shows up on the radar. You may find it works best to keep them around and dump Idaho when a better prospect emerges.

Assuming the conference schedules could be reconfigured, the MAC might even waive the exit fee. All 12 schools would have 83,333 reasons each to get UMass off their hands.

The MAC would have to reshuffle a lot of games, though - Miami (OH) and Bowling Green don't play each other despite being in the same division, but don't have a common open date.

The MAC will not dump UMass right now, given the schedule is in place. Now after this season is a different story. They may be improving, but that is still a major dumpster fire there(I will not go to Nuclear Wasteland just yet, that statement is reserved for certain schools).

Doesn't matter if UMass pays the 500K. Didn't Temple leave the MAC with similar notice.

They did(the then Big East was so desperate to have Temple Basketball, but had to take their Football also). Keep in mind that Temple also had to pay the MAC 6 Million also to do it.
