    Doubtful. It would make sense either way for them to add Boise State.

    Or, it could be that the the North Schools are looking/more than likely going to the big east and the MWC's hopes of landing the big 12 leftovers has passed. Just a thought.

    You are overvaluing recent on field performance.

    Re: Joe Schad (ESPN): Boise State to MWC Today

    Before it seemed like they were holding off on BSU to see if they could grab any big 12 teams... picking BSU up, imho, probably means we're going in another direction (whether that be existing big 12, big east, whatever)

    MWC just confirmed it.

    That's one way to read it. It also depends a lot on who stays in the B-12 and where UT/A&M/OU/OSU go and possible expansions of Pac 10 and SEC to megaconferences.

    But it could mean getting MWC to 10 and adding 6 for a merger (I didn't divide into divisions yet):

    ISU
    KU
    KSU
    Missouri
    Baylor
    Tech
    BYU
    Boise
    Utah
    Colorado State
    Air Force
    UNLV
    San Diego State
    New Mexico
    TCU
    Wyoming

    I still like potential Big East-Big 12 collaboration but I see this as a possibility.

    Grats to BS, they've worked hard to get there. Personally, I hope to never see that blue field again.

    Re: Joe Schad (ESPN): Boise State to MWC Today

    Is this going to be enough to get them an AQ?

    From what I've read, the MWC would have to dump Wyoming, UNLV, SDSU, CSU, New Mexico, etc to become AQ.

    Re: Joe Schad (ESPN): Boise State to MWC Today

    it actually makes sense in football terms...boise state has reached a level that is far too competative for the rest of the WAC. by joining the MWC it gives them 11 teams which would allow the MWC to pick up 3 others from the big 12 (probably ISU, KU, and KSU). this would more than likely give them an automatic BCS spot due to adding a consistent top 10 team, along with former BCS schools. now that Boise is in the MWC, i wouldnt mind playing there rather than in the Big East for football due to the fact that the Big East doesnt have any teams currently worthy of having an AQ spot.

    Adding Boise State gives the MWC 10 teams
