Huge and insurmountable 

IN ALL SERIOUSNESS THOUGH, THE MWC AND CUSA HAVE A LOT TO GAIN BY WORKING TOGETHER.

I SAW MITCHELL ROBINSON - MCDONALDS ALL-AMERICAN - JUST ENROLLED AT WKU.

BOTH THE MWC AND CUSA ARE 1 BID CONFERENCES THAT HAVE HUUUUUUUUUUUGE BOTTOMS.

A PROGRAM LIKE WKU FOR CUSA IS A REFLECTION OF UNLV FOR THE MWC.

THERE SHOULD BE SOME KIND OF SCHEDULING PACT. MAYBE YOU CAN DO A SERIES ON FACEBOOK.

WKU is building a good program.  Just hired a great coach.  Does UCF play them anytime soon?

LOL. I love these fishing expeditions.

I think UCF made the NIT Final Four with their stud center. Dawkins doesn't need WKU.

SPOKANE, WA. - Craig Thompson is a man with a plan. He wants to make the Mountain West Conference, or MWC, a regular multiple bid conference in the sport of college basketball. However, in the age of the haves and have-nots, the MWC has been a have-not. Enter Gonzaga basketball. In Gonzaga, Thompson sees a wayward flagship basketball program, that he can fashion as a head of his 1 bid conference armada. 

UNLV, San Diego State, and New Mexico have fallen on hard times. Thompson, known as Hair to his rabid fans, has tried everything in his power to restore the shine to these once proud programs. Its been his consuming project. A passion. It's been a labor of love - if you will. Without that burning desire to get up in the morning and restore another bid to the MWC coffers, a man of his stature would have moved on to another calling long ago.

Many have called him a savior. With his back against the wall, he lured Boise State President Bob Kustra back to the Mountain West. That was not an easy proposition, and it required countless hours of cloak and dagger style clandestine meetings. Finally, he gave Bob Kustra everything he asked for and rescued the MWC from certain destruction. His shrewd chess-like calculations also brought San Diego State back into the fold. In bowling parlance, Thompson picked up a 7-10 split and saved his membership in the process.

Now, his supporters are hoping he can perform similar magic by securing Gonzaga olympic sports. Dubbed "The Project Part Deaux," the MWC hopes that Gonzaga can raise the profile of the armada, and give the conference a "Basketball Boise". In the process, Thompson has let it be known that he secretly hopes it will spark the flames that have gone out in Las Vegas, San Diego, and Albuquerque. Many point to his role in the ascendancy of Boise State basketball as his Jesus-like touch, when it comes to raising programs from the dead.

In Gonzaga, Thompson may have his proverbial loaf of bread to feed the starving MWC basketball fans. Can he make this happen? Only one silver-haired man in Boise, Idaho, really knows. He has felt the persuasion that Thompson will most certainly bring with him to his next meeting with the Gonzaga brain trust. And, when contacted, Mr. Kustra said "Damnit, we should've stayed with the AAC teams but that silver tongued Devil just tricked me. Don't count us out just yet."

I miss @FormerFrog. His thoughts curb stomped Jack Handy's any day of the week. 

I agree.

I just read this thread and FF seemed to be saying exactly what a lot of people on here have been saying... about trimming the conference fat... and a lot of folks couldn’t deal w it at that time.

FF was ahead of his time.

This guy is prolly looking down from a cloud right now eating cherry pie.. cuz he was proven right.
