  • Breaking news: Hawaii invited to MWC (football only)

    An answer to my prayers!!!! The WAC was falling apart, but thanks to this there is a future!!! WOoo hoooo!!!!

    http://www.kitv.com/news/25845791/detail.html

    HONOLULU -- The University of Hawaii will join the Mountain West Conference for football, sources confirmed to KITV4.
    The move comes on the heels of top Western Athletic Conference teams leaving the conference. Boise State, Nevada and Fresno State bolted for the MWC.
    Hawaii will be part of the MWC just for football. It will be part of the Big West Conference for the other sports, sources told KITV4 Sports.

    OH HAPPY DAY!!!!

          There was no enjoyment left for Hawaii in the WAC. Beating up on the leftovers would've been no fun.

          Are they good enough to compete with the MWC? That's what I'm hoping they show the doubters.

            Since 1998, Hawaii 89-67 which is a .570 winning %. I'm very surprised by this move and think it's a tremendous move by both parties.

              I really like this. The already strong MTW (even with losing the Utah schools) brings in what are, in my mind at least, the top 4 schools from the WAC including Boise who has been one of the best in the country the last few years?

              Give them an automatic birth already. Take the Big East's. Please.

                  Even by adding Hawaii, the Big East has a higher winning percentage since the creation of the BCS.

                  Big East
                  West Virginia 98-50, .662
                  Louisville 97-53, .647
                  South Florida 75-44, .630
                  Connecticut 62-58, .567
                  Cincinnati 83-65, .560
                  Pittsburgh 81-65, .555
                  Rutgers 64-79, .447
                  Syracuse 61-82, .426
                  Total: 621-496 (.556)

                  New Mountain West
                  Boise State (102-15, .872)
                  TCU (108-38, .740)
                  Air Force (86-60, .589)
                  Fresno State (94-60, .584)
                  Hawaii (89-67, .570)
                  Colorado State (77-70., .524)
                  Nevada (59-64, .480, since 2000)*
                  New Mexico (66-80, .452)
                  Wyoming (57-83, .407)
                  San Diego State (50-91, .355)
                  UNLV (44-96, .314)
                  Total: 832-724 (.535)

                  I think the bigger question is this: Hawaii makes the 11th team now in the MWC. Who do they invite as the 12th? Houston? SMU? Tulsa? Southern Miss?

                    Winning percentage? That's you best argument Diab? The MTW has a lot of ****** teams dragging them down at the very bottom...but they are so much more top heavy than the Big East...have been since Rich Rod left WVU. They were really the only elite team within that division.

                    The Big East is just so mediocre and it's going to be a joke and a travesty when an unranked (or laughably lowly ranked) Big East team gets into a BCS bowl over a very unfortunate TCU or Boise State. They'd rob one of those two's conferences of millions by undeservedly getting in. Such BS.

                      But it's even further east...think about it.

                        Those numbers are from 1998, the year the BCS was implemented.

                        I agree, though, that the MWC is A LOT top heavier than the Big East and would be even moreso if BYU (98-53. .649) would have stayed. If they could kick out Wyoming, UNLV, New Mexico, and San Diego and bring in the likes of Southern Miss, Houston, Tulsa, and say SMU then that would be a BCS conference without a doubt.

                          Well, most BCS conferences still have some ****** teams floating around the bottom. Pac-10 has had Washington State recently, SEC has Vandy and the Mississippi schools aren't typically that good, Big-10 has Indiana and Minnesota, Big-12 has Baylor (usually) and the Kansas schools typically aren't that good....

                          The Big-East is just sooo mediocre it's not funny.

                            yeah, I plan on comparing the records and winning percentages of each conference since 1998 to see who is strongest. I have already done the SEC, Big East, and Mountain West so I just have the ACC, Big Ten, Big XII, and Pac-10 left to do.

                              While I'm sure that would show you some things, I don't think it would be the full story. I mean, how often since the start of the BCS have the bigger schools in the BCS conferences scheduled the bottom-feeders of the non-BCS conferences to beat up? It would definitely skew it a bit.
