Blasphemous Rumours: Reactions to the WACsplosion

19 Aug

With two weeks to go before college football kicks off, the sudden disintegration of the Western Athletic Conference has woken up sportswriters and bloggers from their fall camp reverie. We’ve got a compilation of the best (and bizarrest) writing on the WACsplosion.

  • Sam Wasson’s BleedCrimson.net has a great rundown of this morning’s press conference with Karl Benson.
  • San Jose State is left in limbo, Jon Wilner writes in the Mercury News. Join the club, says Louisiana Tech — most damningly, the Bulldogs’ AD all but invites his program to be poached by another conference, preferably C-USA. Stephen Tsai of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser says Hawaii should quit the WAC and go independent.
  • The Fresno Bee’s Dan Lyght and Bryant-Jon Anteola have a whole slew of stories on the Bulldogs’ jump to the MWC.

      Well done. WACsplosion?!? That’s the best term I have heard yet. All of this just as Idaho was making progress? I think if you are counting of UC Davis and Sac State, you might be toast. Go to FCS?

      I’d rather see them try to bring schools up than drop back to FCS, but if too many more bail we might not have that choice…
