to be very boring.
I prefer being in a conference for football because I enjoy checking the standings each week and going on conference message boards. I would enjoy trying to win a conference championship game and getting to a ny6 bowl.
After a couple losses as an independent, I have a hard time coming up with reasons to convince myself that each game matters. I’m also not able to pretend at the start of a season that we have a chance at a national championship.
The wcc isn’t a very exciting basketball conference. I would like to play in a conference that has fans that fill their arenas and get mad when we beat their team. The mwc and aac both would offer us very exciting basketball.
I understand why a lot of people prefer independence and don’t really care what happens to basketball. Personally I would have a lot more fun moving to a conference, even if it isn’t a p5 conference.
