a distinct possibility. From 18:20 to 19:56, is where Interim Commissioner Jeff Hurd talks about it. http://www.wacsports.com/mediaPortal/player.dbml?D B_OEM_ID=10100&id=891309&db_oem_id=10100 Long story short, the WAC will most likely not be playing football in 2013. Whether that is just a one year thing or something long-term remains unknown. 2014 is in doubt too. So how does this involve men's soccer? Any full-fledged/multisport division 1 conference that does not play football must sponsor men's basketball and two other men's team sports - soccer, baseball, volleyball, water polo, hockey, lacrosse, etc. At least seven members must have men's basketball and six play the other sports (20.02.5.2 sections a-c). I take this to mean full-members, though affiliates are acceptable. The fact that Commissioner Hurd mentions men's soccer in the media session tells me there is a legitimate chance the WAC will have to sponsor it in order to be viable. Baseball is already sponsored and no other team sport makes sense. The first thing is to ensure survival as an Olympic conference. As of right now - after the school year only Denver, New Mexico State, Idaho and Seattle will remain as full members. Boise is set to come back next year but is doing a dance to enter the Big West instead. Of those 4/5 members listed, only Idaho and New Mexico State play football (Boise FB will be in the Big East). So unless the WAC can get a minimum of six football playing schools to join they will lose their FBS status.
