OT: WAC Expansion on hold?

Submitted by formerlyanonymous on June 29th, 2010 at 8:11 PM

ESPN has an article out that the WAC had decided not to expand despite being only 8 teams, following the loss of Boise State to the Mountain West.

This makes me wonder, how would the WAC expand? Does it poach the Sun Belt? I doubt they'd be able to poach from Conference USA. That seems like a downward movement for any CUSA team involved. I'd have to assume they go after the UL pair. Louisiana Tech is so isolated from the rest of the conference, I'd almost find it amazing if the Sun Belt could poach LT away.

Could the Sun Belt even do that? Does the WAC gain anything by waiting? Is the prospect of Montana moving to FBS a big enough draw to wait?
