    This is the perfect time for the MWC and the WAC to merge and make a super-hiper-mega conference of evil.

        I think the MWC should just invite the best of what's available which is Nevada, Fresno State, and Houston.

          Why "soon to be vacant"?

          The big blow of losing Nebraska is not in football, but in everthing else. Nebraska has an extremely well rounded sports program. Men's basketball is about the only thing they dont do well. The BCS is still under the NCAA thumb, so all that matters. However, such actions are rarely quick, as the MWC well knows. In football terms, the Big X still has the top two, and arguably three, football programs from before.

          The question is whether they look to pick up a couple programs for next year. Protestations aside, TCU is glaringly obvious, and BYU would fit well in their North. Houston, Memphis and a few other schools will not less well received, since they have issues with recruiting violations, and tend to be one dimensional. Because of the need for a rounded program, I think BYU will be very tempting.

            The reason why all of those teams left: Money. If The big 12 doesn't figure out how to generate revenue outside of Texas and Oklahoma (the universities, not the states), the next time they threaten to leave might as well close the conference. I don't know what the conference commissioner showed them or said to them, but whatever it was must have been a promise to generate more money coming into the conference.

            If that doesn't happen, I could see this same problem down the road in 5 years.

            edit: If schools come into the Big 12, I wouldn't be totally shocked but the conference hinges on two schools.

                Soo the MWC is going to be pretty much irrelevant if this happens.

                  The Mountain West has extended invitations to Fresno State and Nevada to join.

                        Official word from the MWC on the addition of Fresno State and Nevada:
                        http://www.themwc.com/genrel/081810aac.html

                        The Big Ten had their 12-18 month timetable for expansion, the Mountain West took 12-18 hours. I think with the addition of Fresno State and Nevada that BYU should see just how damn competitive the MWC can be now and that hopefully changes their stance on leaving.

                        Current MWC line-up if BYU stays:

                        Air Force
                        Boise State
                        BYU
                        Colorado State
                        Fresno State
                        Nevada
                        New Mexico
                        San Diego State
                        TCU
                        UNLV
                        Wyoming

                          Hopefully BYU leaves and comes to our conference. You guys are killing us.

                            If BYU stays I think the MWC is very similar to the Big East. It would have looked really nice if Utah stayed.

                            Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                              You're probably joking, but differences in time taken between the Big Ten and MWC aren't really comparable.

                              If BYU stays, I like the look of the MWC. If Utah would have stayed, they would have been golden, but they still are a strong, up and coming conference. We'll have to see how guys like Boise St., BYU, and Fresno deal with stiffer competition on a regular basis.

                                I would LOVE to see Houston in the new MWC.
