Default U of H to jump to new conference ??

I have read in various forums that Houston might jump to the Mountain West Conference along with maybe TCU? Has anyone else heard anything credible about this. It is suppose to create a BCS eligible conference. If true, this would be a big shot-in-the-arm to Houston football in the form of recruiting and revenue not to mention hiring and keeping good coaches.

Would appreciate any comments.

TCU is already in the MWC, but that would be cool. I'd get to see the coogs every other year in Albuquerque.

I haven't heard anything like that, but I would hate to see it happen if it's true. Road night games wouldn't start until like 9:00.

I also thought the reason SMU, Rice and Tulsa left the WAC is because of similar travel issues that UH would face in the Mountain West.

That could have a dramatic effect on West Coast recruiting for UH. 9:00 Houston time = prime time in SoCal. It could also mean more unopposed nationally televised games.

That's a great point.

My concern is budgetary. Trips to:
BYU
Utah
Air Force
Wyoming
UNLV
San Diego State
New Mexico
Colorado State

Are a lot more expensive than trips to:
SMU
UTEP
Tulsa
Rice
Tulane

Heck, add in a few of the East Division CUSA teams.
Southern Miss
UAB
even Memphis

Let's face it, the Coogs don't have the athletic budget that some schools do. Again, I think this part of the reason Rice, Tulsa and SMU left the WAC and ironically wound up in Conference USA.

There have been all sorts of rumors floating around like this for a couple of years.

Nothing is concrete. It's CUSA for right now.

Maybe when UTSA is ready to make the jump to the CUSA? They initially said they eventually wanted to be in the CUSA. That might be a while though.

Default Re: U of H to jump to new conference ??

There have been bloggers talking about U of H, Boise State, Nevada and Fresno State going to MWC. MWC would drop the bottom feeders to add these teams and then in the hopes of doing that gain a automatic BCS bid.

If any team needs to go to the MWC, it should be Boise State.

Then the BCS crew would have to re-figure the entire league....because that conference with Utah, TCU, BYU, and then Boise State would be dominant.

Here's a slew of information. I'm not sure how credible it is, but interesting to read.

If that happened the only way I want UH to go is if the MWC gets a automatic BCS league if not its a waste of time. If that conference is stronger it just creates a non BCS league where the best non BCS teams basically knock each other off and leave all the bids to the big leagues.

According to the BCS website, only one additional conference could be added to an automatic qualifying bid, and it will only be after the evaluation of the 2008-2011 seasons. The earliest an additional AQ conference could be added would be 2012. After 2013, all conferences will be re-evaluated.

here's the guts of it all:

The 2008-2011 regular seasons will be evaluated under the same standards to determine if other conferences will have annual automatic qualification for the games after the 2012 and 2013 regular seasons. The champions of no more than seven conferences will have annual automatic berths.

If the BCS continues under the same or similar format, conferences will be evaluated on their performances during the 2010-2013 regular seasons to determine which conferences will have automatic qualification for the bowls that will conclude the 2014-2017 regular seasons.

The evaluation data includes the following for each conference (1) the ranking of the highest-ranked team in the final BCS standings each year, (2) the final regular-season rankings of all conference teams in the computer rankings used by the BCS each year and (3) the number of teams in the top 25 of the final BCS standings each year.

Conference agreements with bowls will continue. The Pac-10 and Big Ten champions will host the Rose Bowl if their teams are not in the BCS national championship game. Likewise, the Southeastern Conference champion will host the Sugar Bowl, ACC champion will host the Orange Bowl and Big 12 champion will host the Fiesta Bowl.

I mentioned on other thread that Old Southwest Conf was good. Just think Texas, Texas Tech, TCU, Texans A&M, Houston, Arkansas SMU, Baylor, and Rice. This aint bad group. Especially, bolded unis. With bolded unis and OU and OSU, called them Tough South 8 or something.

Or even Southwest Conference. They should never have done away with it in the first place.
