Re: Sac State interested in joining BW
Damn, probably a decent idea at this point, but 15 years ago
this would have been met with a hardy “No F’n way”. Still wish we could figure out how to snake our way into the MWC for select sports.
"Should the Big West or any other conference have interest in us, then certainly we’re willing to listen." That's Sacramento State AD Orr as the Sacramento Bee's Davidson digs in on conference affiliation for the Hornets: "What about long term? Sac State isn’t opposed to a long stay in the WAC, but it is not an ideal fit. The Hornets should seek a new home. It’s a logistical nightmare, with schools like Grand Canyon, rooted in Arizona, Dixie State in Utah, Seattle in Washington and New Mexico State and Utah Valley also making for quite a hike. What would be ideal is joining the Big West Conference. That conference seeks a 12th baseball member, and you can bet the Big West has eyes on Sac State. The appeal is mutual. The Big West is heavy on California, with Hawaii the only out-of-state school. ... The Hornets have the pedigree to be that 12th Big West program. The Big West will have meetings next month to discuss adding another school. The earliest a 12th could be added would be for the 2024 season."
