Conference Chatter (Part III)

Just a quick summary of the ever-fluid talk that we have been hearing in the last 48 hours regarding the Big Sky hoopla:

  • UND AD Brian Faison has stated publicly that the “discussions” with the BSC are for full-membership.
  • Faison also stated they will move forward with their Summit visit early next week.
  • Both Faison and President Kelley get back to town today.
  • We are hearing that the WAC will be extending formal invites to Texas State and UTSA, which means….
  • Montana & Montana St likely staying put in BSC.
  • An informed official from a position in the BSC has informed us off the record that “an unofficial invite has been extended to UND, USD and SUU”.
  • Sounds as though SUU to BSC is all but a formality, regardless of the Dakota schools.
  • UND & USD are apparently a package deal.
  • Because of scheduling, our guess is that UND wouldn’t start BSC play until 2013 at the earliest.
  • Reminder:  Nothing is guaranteed at this point.

We will do our best to try keep up in the coming days.  Remember to follow us on our Twitter account for tidbits of info as we come across it.

Don’t touch that dial…

    Is there any possibilty in the future that the Big Sky Conference could convert from a FCS to an FBS conference? And if so, how would they go about doing it?
