QUICK: name every school that will be a member of the Western Athletic Conference two years from now. You cannot. With the Boise St. Broncos, Nevada Wolf Pack, Hawaii Warriors and Fresno St. Bulldogs all leaving the WAC and Denver Pioneers, Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners and Texas State Bobcats signing on, the conference's membership has been the nation's most difficult to memorize.
Now another school has joined up: the Seattle Pioneers have been invited and will accept, says commissioner Karl Benson, who cited the attractive Seattle media market. The Utah Valley St. Wolverines were the other team up for admission, but didn't earn an invite this time around.
And let's review: the Idaho Vandals, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, New Mexico St. Aggies, San Jose St. Spartans and Utah State Aggies remain full WAC members. The BYU Cougars play WAC softball, and California State play WAC baseball, and a few other teams compete in WAC gymnastics ... I think that's it.
