    There have been discussions about adding the MWC to the BCS due to their performance on the field. Adding Boise State would only strengthen their case, especially if they are added before July 1, I believe.

        Television.

        With Boise State in the fold, the MWC would be in position to negotiate themselves a nice contract

        According to the WAC President trying to make an argument for more bowl money, he showed that the WAC was doing better than the Big East and ACC in Television ratings and attendance. And that's the WAC. An improved Mountain West is going to be right in the mix and be able to negotiate themselves a nice TV contract.

          Yes, I'm sure. I didn't look at those rankings (bizarre methodology), but Texas A&M is the 53rd ranked research university in the U.S. according to the ARWU, which is the premier ranking system for academic research.

          That isn't bad (certainly not Texas Tech or Oklahoma State bad), but I included A&M because Stanford has already turned them down for academic reasons.

            I would love to see the numbers that show that, on average, the WAC gets more T.V. viewers than the ACC.

              From Stewart Mandel's twitter:

              "Beauty of the Pac-10's plan is that it doesn't affect travel as much as you'd think. Big 12 schools would make 1 West Coast trip per season."

              http://espn.go.com/blog/pac10/post/_...12-partnership

              Link provides information that a partnership and possible assimilation of the Big XII has been in discussions.

              Below is a link that shows how the the tv ratings, revenue, attendance, and rankings are between the MWC/WAC, ACC, and Big East.

              Article the link is taken from which discusses the fairness of the BCS:

                  I see a lot of this as posturing.
                  The other big leagues making it known (via denied leaks) that they are prepared to be proactive.

                  Super conferences sounds cool, but will end up super ******.

                    I'd be fine with Texas to the Pac 10. I'd prefer Texas to the Big 10, but the Pac 10 sounds nice as well.

                        If this happens, I guess the SEC will be coming for Florida State, Miami, Georgia Tech and Clemson. Just pure guessing though.

                          SEC should go after Tech and Clemson. Renew the Clemson and South Carolina rivalry. I remember the fight.

                            I think Virginia Tech and West Virginia are probably the most likely. The SEC really doesn't need Georgia Tech and Clemson for anything.

                              Well rivalries with SCAR and and UGA, but I don't really care either way. If we do expand, Florida St. and Miami are the must gets. Anything else is just icing on the cake.

                                That's been my feeling, especially since Florida State and Miami don't have a ton of loyalty to their current conferences.

                                Basically keeping almost all the Florida talent in the SEC seems like a worthwhile investment to me
