Congrats New Mexico State and Idaho for finding a conference

I know I am a little late on this issue but, the teams who got slapped around during realignment finally found a place in division 1 football .

Idaho and New Mexico State have found new homes in the Sun Belt Conference. This is a big win for the Sun Belt for more ways and I think no one will agree with me on this. Idaho brings a team that was about to drop back down and accept a Big Sky Conference invite. New Mexico State is actually closer to the conference action so expect them to make more sense.

Both have histories with the Sun Belt Conference as they were members before bolting for the WAC(Now a weak basketball conference).

Idaho brings the Moscow media market, which is huge for the Sun Belt who needed a presence in the western region of the United States (Sarcasm). I believe that Idaho will be a loyal team to the conference the next time around.

At least they found a home, and now Boise State has no excuse not to play their brother...
they are both Division 1
