Given how political it seems to be getting it sounds like the BCS may grant the appeal. If the MWC were fortunate enough to achieve that classification, I think you would see the MWC try to move in nab Houston and SMU or approach BYU about coming back into the fold in an attempt to maintain that status. With the Big East also sniffing around some of the same C-USA programs that conference looks like it could be in the same situation the MWC was last summer. Either way it looks to me like another round of expansion is about ready to kick off.
