1) Weber and SUU are excited to play each other annually. and geographically they save on travel costs to North Dakota for basketball
2) dunno, who said the wac has any money to collect with 4 schools (maybe 5 with boise state) by 2013?
3) Nau is considered a rival with SUU per the big sky dual rivalry rotation in sky football. NAU plays SUU and UNColo. I don't think they match up with Montana anyway competively or saving travel to play a SUU or possibly NMSU weak team link
4)They don't have anyone calling them, and independence is likely the last straw before joining the Big Sky (NMSU has an outside chance at MWC but it ain't happening due to lack of all common sense basketball wise)
