In a series about western states, I tried to think about something wrong with Wyoming and could not. The closest I can come up with is, if Idaho becomes two states, splitting Wyoming between Colorado and Montana. The problem is that Montana is already unwieldy as it is and adding more land, a lot if you want to try to fit Casper in there, would aggravate that problem. Plus, Wyoming doesn’t particular need anyone because their mineral wealth makes things pretty good for Wyoming. The state even got the university situation right. Whereas North Dakota and South Dakota split their top schools into flagship and land-grant, Wyoming has only one real state university that serves as both. As such, unlike the Dakotas and Montana, they’re settled with Division I-A representation while states larger than them aren’t. So… good for Wyoming.
