Southern Conference

Has only 6 football schools for the 2014 season. I think that is the minimum for AQ.

The FCS playoffs could be dominated by the Colonial, Missouri Valley and Big Sky.
 
They'll pick up a couple, maybe they can the Catamounts and one of the region's service academies to join.
 
VMI, East Tenn., and Mercer.

To think this conference once held most of the teams now in the SEC and ACC.

Is East Tennessee resurrecting its football team?

And the PAC 12 once held Montana and Idaho....

And the WAC once held Air Force, Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, BYU, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawaii, UNLV, New Mexico, Nevada, Rice, SDSU, Rice, SMU, TCU, Tulsa, Wyoming, UTEP, Utah and more. The only two who are F'd are Idaho and NMSU. Hate onthe WAC but it could've been a good stepping stone

The thing that gets lost in translation so much is who are our academic peers. The majority of the above schools are just that. Just look at the Ivy League schools, I don't see Harvard or Yale trying to get into the Big Ten, the ACC, etc because they recognize who their academic peers are....of course I doubt a Harvard man would agree to that in regard to a Yale man, or vice versa.

ouch :oops:
No, Montana and Idaho were never in the Pac 12 -- the Skyline, perhaps, but not the Pac 12 (or 10 or 8).

1902-23 Northwest Conference (UM, Wash, WSU, OSU, Oregon, Idaho and Whitman College
1924-50 Pacific Coast Conference (Northwest Conference + USC, Cal, Stanford... UCLA in 1928)
1951-61 Skyline
 
Point of clarification: The PAC-12, with the addition of Colorado and Utah, is two years old. It was preceded by what became the PAC-10 when Arizona and Arizona State came on board. Montana and Idaho belonged to the old Pacific Coast Conference which included the present eight California, Oregon and Washington schools...
