    Well, they are going to the Big East now. They obviously are high profile enough to not have to do some type of compensation model. I don't knock TCU for not taking games against huge schools without those schools giving them a home game back. It's not an issue anymore.
    As of 2009 it wasn't obvious. That's certain. Also, it's always about the money.

    I'm glad that TCU is joining the Least. Win/Win IMO.

      Well I guess Utah is leaving aren't they? BYU as well if I'm not mistaken. Still it's a lot closer than one would think between a non-AQ and an AQ conference.

      • Wow Boise have got to be annoyed at this... move conference only to have the core of that conference then leave.

        Good chance that next year the Mountain West is stronger than the Big East but not once it loses TCU...

        Big East has a lot more depth though, it is a big pile of steaming mediocre teams, none with realistic title ambitions and none that are so truly horrible that you question their existence.


        Props to BK on the sig!

          While I have been known as a Mountain West supporter on this board I have to say that even with the addition of Boise St., Fresno St., and Nevada to the MWC when TCU was still a part of it would NOT have been a better conference than the Big East. While, for the most part, the Big East has eight mediocre teams in it with the cream of the crop being West Virginia the MWC would have had two or three top teams (Boise St., TCU, maybe Nevada) but then a bunch of horrible teams (New Mexico, Wyoming, UNLV, San Diego State, Colorado State) that would get hosed by any Big East school.

          The Big East just plays a tougher strength of schedule on average than any Mountain West school and while it was fun rooting for the underdog MWC to get a BCS bid when Utah, BYU, and TCU were in it, those three schools realized that the old saying "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" is true and that is exactly what they have done. Blame Craig Thompson, Mountain West commissioner, for not inviting Boise State, Nevada, and Fresno State sooner. If he would have invited those schools 2-3 years ago then the MWC would have had a title game and more than likely a BCS bid.

            Haha, SickWitIt neg repped me on this post and simply said "Get a clue." I guess we know his intellectual capacity is limitless!

            • If only MWC was compromised of

              Utah
