    Great move by the MWC!

    Utah
    BYU
    TCU
    Boise State

    Pretty strong 4 there, usually flirting with the top ten...most always in the top 25.

    I'd like to see the MWC pickup Kansas and Kansas state, making it a MWC 12

    Considering 3 of the 4 have been to BCS games very recently, I'd think they have a pretty good case to be given the available automatic BCS bid that would be available if the Big 12 goes belly up, or ends up as a shadow of it's former self.

    I think the MWC with adding Boise State (I fully believed before they should have a BCS auto-bid), this fully sets the stage for the NCAA to take action if (like Champion stated) the Big XII collapses....which is currently taking place.

    Yea, Kansas and Missouri would be even better. That conference has room to grow into something special for sure.

    Not a huge recruit, but certainly Boise has grown their program immensely.

    Certainly Chris Peterson deserves a lot of credit for not just keeping the ball rolling after Dan Hawkins, but taking things even higher.

    5 years, 49-5 record.

    They're also returning a lot of people from the team that won a BCS game last year. They could have a shot at busting into the title game this year.

    I'd love to see the MWC teams (including Boise State) play against the top teams in college football other than themselves (see Boise State vs TCU matchup in BCS game this past year).
