Hints That More WAC Moves On The Way?

Are more WAC moves on the way? A single tweet has us thinking the answer is most definitely "Yes".

* Benson confirmed that the conference has three bowl tie-ins for 2011 and only one, the Humanitarian, for 2012. * (When) asked what long-term league models have been discussed by the athletic directors and presidents, Benson specifically mentioned a WAC with 12 teams, at least 9 of which play football.

Sun Belt commissioner Wright Waters said North Texas, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana-Monroe are "not interested" in joining the WAC, which is searching to bolster its ranks even further after the recent additions of UTSA, Texas State and Denver. "All four have called and said, ‘Just to let you know, they’ve called, but we’re not interested,’" "I’m not worried about it. We’ve kind of moved on. There are other issues to worry about." One of those issues, he said, likely won’t be expansion, despite reports the league had entered into preliminary discussions with at least one potential addition. "I can tell you, beyond a shadow of a doubt, nobody in an official position has had any contact with anybody, (WAC member) Louisiana Tech or anybody else," Waters said. "We’re not afraid of that, but any expansion would have to bring huge value to our league."
