The AAC isn't reaching out to anyone.

They are only dealing with teams that reach out to them. (the pool of those teams is big enough that they don't have to recruit)

Everyone they're talking to called them.

This has already been debunked several times even by schools themselves. Get a grip

No I was honestly asking your definition because everyone has their own different one on that. Like to no movement at all, some movement etc that is why I was asking

 

A little movement is fine, but as long as it remains intact, it's stable.  That is my definition.

I think that is accurate.

In fact, I know of nothing to prevent SDSU having a law school. Law schools don't award Doctor of Philosophy degrees but rather Juris Doctorates. Those are 3-year full-time programs and are sometimes awarded after five years of higher education with the student also earning just the equivalent of an associate of arts degree rather than a BA.

Not mentioned by a poster above is that San Diego doesn't just have a law school at private USD, it also has an ABA accredited law school at private Cal Western. I'm friends with a former professor there who told me that school has had financial problems for many years and it's located in a sketchy part of downtown. Maybe it would be irrelevant to SDSU gaining P12 admission but it's my opinion SDSU should buy it if possible and move that school to the expanded campus in Mission Valley.

There are no good law schools in SD.  Anyone who tries to say USD is good is a moron.  But the world needs less lawyers.  Build up our STEM, business, and economics.

What's laughable, is a NDSU fan thinking the MWC would ever invite them. 

Geography matters. 

 

Been saying it for a while now.  But the whole taking in an FCS opened up Montana for me.  So congrats, Bison fans.  Griz get my support because of you.  Hard pass on Fargo.  Try the MAC or the AAC (i hear they take anyone)

What works in Big West favor is no longer having football

 

What doesn't work is no longer having much of a presence outside California.  Dropping football weakened basketball.  It stabilized, but paid a heavy price.

Montana St. Not the history of UM but I think more upside. Bigger town, bigger campus.

I mean except for baseball, Big West hasn't had a huge presence for you could say decades. Baseball is what makes people keep remembering that the Big West is there, but that has been kind of slipping or something lately

Even a small presence in the inner mountain west was better than being reduced back to an all-California bubble. Dropping football was almost too heavy a price.  Although the legacy kinda lives on here, and through the Las Vegas Bowl and Famous Idaho Potato.

In a way, Trent Johnson is a symbol of how things have changed. He's the interim head coach at CSUN this year.  His first season at Nevada, '99-2000, was the Wolf Pack's last in the Big West.  I wish someone had asked him about coaching in the league back then and what it will be like now.  His answer would say a lot.

I didn't know he was the interim coach there. TJ has kind of had a hard time since leaving Nevada, hard to catch on in places. However when Nevada was in the Big West football wise it was solid at the beginning but when Fullerton and LBSU decided to stop football, then UNLV left and Fresno had already left it was possibly on life support then. They brought in Louisiana Lafayette, Louisiana Monroe, Northern Illinois and Arkansas St in at two different times. Then I think the writing was on teh wall when Pacific dropped football because of costs. At that point it was on life support and I don't think there was anything that could have saved Big West by that time. I think Fullerton, LBSU and Pacific all dropping football were the big blows to Big West

I wouldn’t be opposed to have a Big West football conference. San Diego State, Boise, Utah State, hawaii, SJSU, Fresno, UNLV, Nevada, and UC Davis. SDSU and Boise would probably bounce sooner or later. But for now, that’s a decent conference with a heavy west coast presence. UC Irvine, UCSB.. sometimes Hawaii, SDSU, Utah State, UNLV all provide a basketball punch. I think it would work. If BSU and SDSU do leave, we can try grab Weber State and Montana.
