Bakersfield #59 as well. Two schools from the lowly WAC in the top 60!!!!! If only 2-3 of the garbage schools at the bottom of the WAC would improve. We need Chicago state to go away and Seattle to play to their potential.
That's right bygolly! And just wait til the feared Cal-Baptist Lancers get added to the mix next season! The world of college basketball has been put on notice! Beware the mighty WAC! Lol!
Not ideal, but improving. At the end of the day. If we can get several teams into the top 150-200 RPI it helps us. Geographically, if Chicago stat goes away and we add Cal Baptist and San Diego it makes sense.
Outside of of the possibility of being invited to the MWC, CUSA, or SBC, the WAC (for Olympic sports) is the best geographic fit for NMSU. The is improving (after hitting rock bottom) and as long as the Hurd makes smart conference additions, this WAC can develop into a strong "mostly" western based basketball conference. It will never be like the old Big West (with Tark's UNLV) but in time it could be a poor man's version of the WCC.
