And the Montanas, Idaho, EWU and Weber St will accept.
The Summit League commish has confirmed that PFW and W Illinois are about to leave. https://kwsn.com/news/articles/2019/mar ... ction-yet/
A western Summit division of the Montanas, Idaho, EWU, Weber St and Denver would be so much better than the Big sigh academically, athletically, with research and professional schools, and with actual fan bases. But naturally, Griz fans will be so scared of actual competition that even the hots the Griz fans have for the Bison fb team won’t be enough.
The east division will be Omaha, USD, Augustana, SDSU, NDSU and UND with three flights getting all the schools. Better than what you have in the Big Sigh.
California and Oregon schools have never panned out as you planned. Remember Northridge St that was going to be an FCS power with unlimited potential in the LA media and bring Griz action to untold millions? The same thing happened with Portland St and Sac St as far as fan interest.
The new Summit will be FCS first but FBS is possible by 2025.
