The MAC and football expansion so far the Eastern expansion brings short term members .There are to many Eastern FBS conferences to compete with .The MAC should try a four corners approach adding NMSU , Idaho , and ARMY for football only to go along with UMASS. ARMY has joined a conference before as long as the conference schedule is 8 games then they would fit nicely. The MAC would have a following in every region and different time zones for better options for T.V. games.Let members play each other in non conference games if they wish allowing rivalries to stay intact. The football only members would add exposure in different regions with a real chance of staying a while.
