    All sports. There's no such thing as "basketball-only" membership. Basketball is a core sport.

    Gonzaga is being used as a pawn to try to lure in BYU. Hopefully Gonzaga wises up and stays put in the WCC where they belong. Just ask Oral Roberts how they liked being in a football-first conference.

    Did they keep this designation after going to FBS and FCS?

    Division I-AAA:
    (85 member institutions) - includes the Big West Conference

    * 85 institutions that do not sponsor football at the intercollegiate level.
    * Athletics programs are focused on the sport of basketball.
    * 41 of the 85 Division I-AAA institutions are small private colleges or universities.

    This would be a good get for the MWC with or without BYU. Not sure if it's a good move for Gonzaga or not. If it's just them, BYU is fine. If the MWC decides it wants to go to a hybrid model, though, WCC schools would probably be their main target and that could leave BYU in the Big West.

    "Good get" as in the Zags would make MWC MBB stronger. But at what expense? Adding schools with institutionally different missions than their conference mates has proven to not work. Look at the Big East. Look at the original C-USA. Oral Roberts to the Southland. Etc. It either tears the conference apart in the end, or the oddball looks for a way out.

    If those schools are referenced as a group, they are just called Division I non-football schools.

    But the Zags don't play football. They last fielded a football team in 1941. So, how can it be an "all sports" member of the MWC? I guess the same way UNT is an "all-sports" member of CUSA, despite not playing baseball, huh.

    "Full" member would be more appropriate terminology, meaning they compete in the conference in all sports that they both sponsor.

    Big question finally answered as to where Liberty could find a home for their non-football sports... Down to the A-Sun they go.

    Brett McMurphyVerified account @Brett_McMurphy tweet
    Sources: Liberty moving all sports except football from Big South to Atlantic Sun starting in 2018-19 school year. Football will remain FBS independent. School has 2 p.m. news conference to announce move. 1st reported by @ASeaofRed

    UNT plays football at Liberty on Sept 22nd this year. That's the week before UNT hosts LA Tech.
