The End of the WAC as We Know it?

This week Irv Moss of the Denver Post reported the Western Athletic Conference could be on the way to dropping football.  With the past couple seasons seeing the college landscape continually evolve, it appears one such conference will become extinct.

Perhaps no conference has been hit as hard by realignment than the WAC.  It has been an exodus that would make Moses blush.  Hawaii, Fresno State, and Nevada have all departed for the Mountain West.  Current WAC members San Jose State and Utah State will follow suit after this year.  The top football program left, Louisiana Tech is gone in 2013 for Conference USA along with Texas-San Antonio.

Texas State, like UTSA, is a recent addition to the FBS ranks.  Even the Bobcats are jumping ship, headed to the Sun Belt.

With only two football programs remaining as WAC members in 2013, it seems highly unlikely there will be a future for a mid-major conference no one wants to be a part of.  According to the Denver Post the conference’s board will decide the fate of their future football endeavors within the next couple of weeks.

There are other conferences on the endangered species list of college football.  With only one bowl tie-in (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl) the WAC has little to offer the rest of the NCAA.  Idaho and New Mexico State appear to be the last two left at the party a year from now.

While a decision on the WAC’s football division is still forthcoming, it looks bleak at best.  Perhaps the Mayans meant WAC not world, in meeting an untimely fate in 2012.
