The SBC can make a decision in 2015-16 as to whether they want to extend the agreement or let it expire in 2017-18. Its still quite different than the UMass agreement with the MAC which was exercised this year not in 2016.

It could be that its January of 2016 and UMass doesn't have a conference home. The SBC says to itself yes on a 14th school with the same provision Idaho has on its contract.

The SBC can have JMU transition 2015-16 and Missouri St 2016-17 with the idea they can discuss the Idaho situation when the cross that path in 2016. Having UMass floating out there might be what motivates them to keep Idaho in the fold ultimately.

That makes sense. I can't imagine even Idaho would be desperate enough to take what could be a two-year internship with a conference. It's hard enough to recruit without not being able to tell your freshmen what conference you're going to be in. Sort of like how coaches rarely stay to the end of their contract -- they either leave early or get fired/resign with four years left, because you can't sell yourself to prospects when you can't tell them you'll be there for their entire time there.
