OPEN THREAD: SAYING GOODBYE TO AN OLD FRIEND

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

(pour some out for young dennis erickson, y'all)

We are not here to discuss the SEC Championship game, because that is about as fun to argue about as Triscuits vs. Wheat Thins, if Triscuits were made of insulation and Wheat Thins were old chopped up mousepads. Instead, we prepare to say farewell to the Western Athletic Conference, which kicks off its final football game today. The WAC may only be a shadow of its former self, but let's remember the good times. What was the WAC? Simple. It was...

Where Dan Hawkins was a valued coach on the rise.

Where David Carr was the toast of the NFL.

Where Ashley Lelie couldn't be covered.

Where Arizona State was a conference champion.

Where Georgia Tech and USC are both only 1-2 in bowl games.

Where Derek Dooley, Steve Kragthorpe, and Jim Fassel were free. TRULY free. (The WAC can't afford cops.)

Where Zac Champion called home.

That's what the WAC is, and forever will be. We miss you already.

This is your second open thread. As is the tradition with any funeral, feel free to get drunk and say things you will later claim you don't remember. It's cool.
