  • San Diego Union-Tribune: SDSU's Weber: MWC didn't like expansion candidates (Why do I share this link? Because of this completely random, unrelated-to-the-rest-of-the-article passage)

    Regarding SDSU and its membership in the MWC, Weber said there are "no other irons in the fire" with other conference suitors.

    "The issue gets to be interesting when you start looking at an increasingly successful athletic program and a large TV market," Weber said of SDSU. "I know others have looked at exactly those issues. When it’s something that will be attractive to them, if ever, I can’t guess."

    Asked if the Big 12, now down to 10 members, had expressed interest in SDSU, Weber said, "I can’t talk about that."

    He did say no other conferences have approached SDSU about membership.

    Asked if the Pittsburgh Pirates had expressed interest in him for their General Manager position, Bill C. said, "I can't talk about that."

    Asked if Yvonne Strahovski had expressed interest in him, RPT said, "I can't talk about that."

    I mean ... where exactly did this question come from?  Was there a whole "SDSU to Big 12?" storyline that I completely missed?  And if so ... we do know where San Diego is, right?
