    Who can blame them, its a better conference than the Big East right now, maybe even the best non bcs conference.

    holy ****, Boise made out like bandits.

    Per Pete Thamel:

    MWC will help with the 10 million $ buyout
    MWC will allow Boise to play with all blue home uni's
    MWC will allow Boise to sell all home games as a separate package and keep all revenue

    This means there will be two FBS conferences out west: The Pac-12 and the MWC.

    No idea what this means for the Pac-12 but it would be unwise to ignore the MWC.

    The MWC has been able to compete with the Pac-12 in football and basketball in the last decade. While they have lost Utah, BYU, and TCU in the last couple of years, I would not dismiss the MWC's chances of regaining its strength. BSU isn't the only current MWC school to have a BCS bid since Hawaii is the other school to do so.

    The gap between the MWC & Pac-12 is not as wide as the C-USA & Big 12, Sun Belt & SEC, Big East & ACC, and MAC & B1G gap. I don't believe the MWC will overtake the Pac-12 but the MWC will be able to compete with the Pac-12 schools.

    in what way, compete? As in, lose a lot more often than win?

    Simple fact is that even with Boise the entire footprint where the MWC is dominant in terms of fan support/interest has a smaller population than LA or Houston in the PAC or Big XII. MWC people can point to winning OOC games, point to bowl games, point to tourney selections, etc. but in college football for the long term the question will always come back to money. Boise can have their TV package like BYU has their TV package. Both would trade in an instant for a share of PAC or Big XII money. Ultimately they will be forced to scale themselves to available resources if they can't force themselves into a major conference which at this point looks highly unlikely.

    The money, coaching, facilities, media coverage etc. all greatly favor the PAC 12 and always will. The PAC could effectively destroy the MWC by adding a couple schools.

    True, competition has been stiff, but the lesser conference schools will not compete financially going forward. As an example CU will make ~27x the amount of money that CSU makes. SEC, Big10, Big12 and SEC will make over 95% of the money in college athletics within the decade.

    The only point worth discussing is whether the Pac 12 wants to take any more MWC teams to get to 16. Boise has no tv market and no claim at this point. Outside UNLV, New Mexico, or SDST, no one else has a shot...

    BYU is a good option, and maybe take a strike at KU and OK schools again.

    It was obviously going to happen. Clearly in the new situation, this is highly preferable to football in the Big East and other sports in the Big West.

    San Diego State will come out of this nicely as well. Boise leaving the Big East allows SDSU to do so with no buy out due a clause that lets them bounce for free if there are no other Big East teams west of the Rockies.

    Can you post the overall records for MWC vs. PAC 12?

    $25 Million? Holy crap, the MWC will be able to now brag that they make AS MUCH annual TV revenue as a single Pac 12 school as opposed to left. Yep, they are really moving up in the world and a huge threat to the Pac 12. :lol:
