Don’t count the University of Montana out of the WAC picture just yet.
It would be a great catch for the conference — an established football school in the Football Championship Subdivision, a stadium that seats over 25,000 and a program with a solid fan base.
It would create a good buzz around a WAC that desperately needs it.
The WAC won’t go hunting for a new school until after the new year. Last year they courted Montana in March, only to see the school back away. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the league make another pitch at the Grizzlies.
