They were in a perfectly fine conference (MAC), and they decided to leave. They're not going to a P5 conference. Forget THAT pipe dream.Nobody likes their tax money going to pipe dreams, but that is what government does and we all have to live with it. UMASS will be in a conference before too long and then your investment will have been for a good cause.
Absolute best they can hope for is C-USA. And that would probably kill their Olympic sports. Same with the American. The best place for them, if they want to maintain a football team, is to drop down and join the CAA.
