WAC adds one more team

This time, it's Texas-Pan American, about as far south in Texas as you can go before you're in Mexico.

The 2013-14 lineup of the WAC:

Seattle
Idaho
Cal State Bakersfield
Utah Valley
Grand Canyon
New Mexico State
Texas-Pan American
Chicago State

Idaho will be gone in 2014-15 (to the Big Sky), leaving them with seven members after that (unless there are more additions or departures).

The WAC has gobbled up most of the Great West Conference (which only has NJIT left) and is attempting to rival the Big East for most geographically awful conference ever. The closest schools as far as driving distance goes are Grand Canyon U and New Mexico State, which are both over 350 miles apart via the shortest route.

What a mess. I still feel a bit sorry for NMSU ... hopefully they'll end up in the Sun Belt or C-USA at some point. Realistically, at least half of these teams - perhaps all of them - belong in some other conference.
