    Mountain West to invite Boise today?

    This is a good read from the Mountain West Conference's side of things.

    This report claims that an invite could be handed out to Boise as early as today. It sounds to me like the folks out west are preparing themselves for a busy next few months.

    Maybe they should invite ISU too.

    This link says that they don't plan to invite Boise State today, and those plans are on hold until they see what the Big 10/Big XII doExpansion discussed, but no action yet - Wyoming Tribune Eagle Online

    Okay guys, let's start our own league. I will contact ND today, someone call Missouri. Who wants Rutgers? Can someone hit up Auburn. Let's go. Time is wasting.

    I would think Boise would wait till eveything settles. They could get invited into an AQ cnonference.

    If I were Boise, I would call the PAC 10.

    Ain't happening - if the Pac-10 is concerned about inviting OSU, TT, and K-State because of their academic statuses, then Boise St won't even be a consideration. As soon as Boise St gets the MWC invitation, they're a MWC school, and then together the MWC will try to leverage BCS status. It's about their only play.

    I don't want anyone calling Auburn until they fix their 'chizik' problem. Other than that , I've got dibs on Rutgers.

    I would love to see what TV markets KSU delivers. KU would get them KC without them, so if they are talking TV sets they should dump KSU and keep ISU because that would deliver TV sets in Iowa (which is more populated than Kansas) whereas KSU would only add TV sets that KU would already bring. But what else would you expect from a KSU fan.

    Before we go after KSU too much. The article was by Pete Fiutak. He may be a KSU fan as well, but is a national guy.

    I don't care who the guy is his reasoning about TV sets doesn't add up when KU delivers the markets that KSU would bring.

    Re: Mountain West to invite Boise today?

    If I were Boise, I would make sure that there's no way they'll be a part of an expanded PAC-10 before joining a new league. If the news about the 6 teams from the B12 is false, or if there are complications with some of those schools, Boise could benefit.

    Zero chance BSU is going to the Pac-10.
