Karl Benson and the WAC need your help!

The WAC is entering a new era, an era without Boise State. Shortly after that the WAC loses every other team that had even a shred of national respect. Let's face reality, after Boise State, Fresno, Nevada, and Hawaii leave for the MWC, ESPN might as well rename their Bottom 10 list to the "Weakly WAC Update." The remaining five teams (Idaho, NM State, LA Tech, San Jose, and Utah State) have an almost unbelievable 3 combined winning seasons in the last five years, if you do the math that is 3 seasons finishing over .500 out of a possible 25 and an overall win loss record of 99W-209L (.473).  These numbers led me to the conclusion that the WAC's "Play Up" slogan is no longer relevant and a little redundant. So I took it upon myself to ask the good people of OBNUG to help Karl and the WAC come up with a new, more fitting slogan.

 When I first started this venture it was nothing more than simple insults and wordplay, a few that I came up with were;  The Weakest Athletic Conference, The Weak A%# Conference, or What Athletic Conference? The more time I spent on this the more fun I had, and the more creative I became.  After I decided to leave the letters WAC alone I wanted to come up with real slogan that could sound inspirational and condescending at the same time.

The Western Athletic Conference:

  • Where winning isn't everything.
  • Hey! There's always next year.
  • Promoting mediocrity since 2011.
  • Everybody appreciates a gracious loser.

Next I wanted to incorporate Mr. Benson's point of view, and create a few slogans that spoke to recent overhaul of the WAC.

The Western Athletic Conference:

  • Suck it Craig Thompson.
  • Can't we all just get along?
  • We still have a deal with ESPN, don't we?
  • Hey, we picked up 2 Texas schools.

While working on these last few I decided Karl would want a slogan that was going to help him build for the future.  How do you do that?  Recruiting.  I decided the WAC needs a slogan that speaks to the younger generation, one that makes 17 and 18 year old kids say "I want to play in the WAC!"  So that became. The WAC-Too Legit to Quit!  That was going to be the end, but it felt like something was missing. I came to the realization that Karl was more than likely a big OBNUG fan too, so I decided his new slogan needed some OBNUG flare and I came up with:

Haters Gonna Hate... That's WAC!!

 Ok, now it is your turn.  Vote for the slogan you like best and then leave your suggestion for the new WAC slogan in the comments below.  Oh yeah, feel free to MS Paint your new logo/slogan because those are always fun.
