WAC could extend invitation to North Texas

Lance Dunbar, Marcus Gilchrist

That’s right. The same North Texas who owns a whopping 3-8 record this season and who (rightfully) canned Todd Dodge mid-season. The same North Texas who hasn’t had a winning season — or anything remotely close — since 2004.

In light of the recent report that Hawaii could become the fourth WAC team to bolt to the Mountain West, commissioner Karl Benson continued to take a proactive approach to keep the conference from falling apart altogether. With new members UTSA and Texas State already on the football-only slate, Benson hinted that maybe, just maybe, the fightin’ Todd Dodge’s Mean Green would be next on the list.

Benson claimed he hoped that the university would consider making a move from the Sun Belt to the WAC, but in year’s past, the mere thought of high-priced travel arrangements was enough to keep UNT from making any move.

Currently, North Texas is building a brand new football stadium set to open for the 2011 season. Denton also lies in one of the richest recruiting grounds in the country in the Dallas-Ft. Worth region, a trip that most WAC schools would be willing to make.

There has been no official word from the university one way or the other, but Benson said he spoke with North Texas earlier today.

    Get it right, buttwipe: edgy loves USC; he happens to champion the underdog. BTW, turd blossom, Boise is already headed for the WAC.

    I see that you don’t have the guts to use your own screen name.

    @ Edgy

    Boise is heading to the WAC? According to EVERYONE else they are heading to the MWC. Dumbass

    This further proves the WAC is the most substandard conference in College Football

    Are you really attacking his screen name, i guess your real name is “edgy” huhh?

    gamustangdude –

    Edgy is dead on. Boise State is headed to the newly renamed WAC. The MWC had TCU (likely Big East), Utah (PAC-12), and BYU (Independent), as its 1-2-3 punch during recent memory. The MWC that Boise State is joining might have TCU for a year, but it also adds Fresno State (WAC), Nevada (WAC), and probably Hawaii (WAC). Utah State (WAC) is also a likely expansion candidate in order to keep a foothold in Utah.

    If the Big Ten lost OSU, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa, would it still be the Big Ten? In name only…

    gamustangdude, when the WAC drops down to the level of the Sun Belt and MAC THEN they’ll be the most substandard but until then you’re just showing your ignorance by saying that they are. Right now, they’re better than the Big East but with the loss of Boise and the other two, they’ll get down to the Sun Belt region but until then they’re not as bad.

    Listen, boob, the Big Least plays 5 — count ’em — 5 out of conference games. Besides playing in an easy league, they also get 2 more chances at crappy teams when compared to other conferences: look it up.
