Conference Realignment 2012: San Jose State Could Be Mountain West Addition

While we wait for the Mountain West Conference and Conference USA to settle on their future (a new merger or an alliance), the San Jose St. Spartans are hoping to receive an invitation to join the Mountain West. According to Jon Wilner, the Spartans received Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson as a visitor for a tour of the campus.

Thompson also visited Utah State recently, signaling that the Aggies are also a potential recruit to the conference. There are no indications that either school is close to receiving an invite to the conference, but Utah State has been mentioned as a potential initiate over the last couple of years.

The Spartans are hardly a paragon of college football excellence, though Mike MacIntyre has turned a 1-12 team in his first year to a 5-7 squad in 2011. Since joining the WAC in 1996, San Jose State has had just two winning seasons and three non-losing season overall.
