"It's the end of the WAC as we knew it . . ."


And I Feel Fiiiiiiinnnnnneeeee--because the Utes are long removed.

Not enough teams to field a football league next year.

DENVER -- The commissioner of the Western Athletic Conference says it has become apparent the league is "unlikely" to have enough football members to compete next season.

Jeff Hurd tells The Denver Post the conference is now emphasizing simply having enough members to remain a Division I non-football league.

Hurd told the newspaper that in July "it became apparent that it was unlikely we could continue with football."

The WAC still needs to add two to three new members for 2013 in order to have the seven required by the NCAA to be a Division I conference.

Hurd says the conference will do everything possible to avoid shutting down, but "there aren't any obvious answers out there."

The WAC now has seven football members, though five have plans to leave next year.

I did feel a twinge of nostalgia though, had some really fine times at these games.
