I'm all for the MWC getting a BCS bid. I personally think they should take the place of the weak ACC and/or Big East.

The nine-team Mountain West Conference is pushing for an automatic berth into the high-stakes, big-money BCS bowl mix, USA Today has reported.

Three teams in the conference, including undefeated Utah in sixth, TCU in 11th and BYU in 16th, finished among the top 25 in the final 2008 BCS standings, and the league's schools will press for a meeting of their presidents, chancellors and Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson with Atlantic Coast commissioner and current BCS coordinator John Swofford, according to the newspaper.

"The argument I will hear back is, 'Craig, here it is. It's done. It's been agreed to. It's signed,' " Thompson said of a possible reply from the BCS regarding its legal obligations. "That doesn't mean you can't put it on the table.

If they're not going to get rid of them all, then at least give them one. I hate bowl tie ins. You get so many undeserving teams in games its disgusting.

They deserve it but they will not get it because of politics and money. Especially with espin sucking up to the sec and pac-10 and down grading everyone else.
