I’m not sure I understand this “we’re the WAC” pride, some people have on this board? Is it because teams were left behind when the MW was created?

Is it because as teams from a then, rapidly collapsing wac, came into the MW, they (fans anyway), came in with chips on their shoulders and something to prove mentality?

Do you want to bury the MW, break away and reform/relive your wac days? 

Im happy for BSU and FSU, and hoping we (the MWC), gets the NY6 invite, and I will cheer for all MWC teams during bowl season, but I don’t see the ‘us versus them’ devision on this board?.

I don’t get it either.

For me it isn't anything personal like that. Just competetive bragging rights. We came in and have been in charge more often than not.

One team got betrayed and the other was viewed as not good enough for an invitation for way too long. Now we’re here to kick your ass. Enjoy it.

From the Fresno State perspective, we were +++++ed over by the original MWC teams electing to leave without us because of the BYU hatred of Welty. By all rights, we should have been one of the original MWC teams, but it took another another 13 years for us to get an invitation. So while I do root for MWC teams to win in bowl games and OOC, I'm not at all disappointed when the old WAC teams kill off the original MWC.

Don't read too much into it LoboMan.  It has more to do with how the WAC was looked at by you all back in the day then anything looking forward.  This is home and we're all settled in.   

Exactly. It only comes up when folks bemoan how good they were in the good old days. Except they were the cellar dwellers back then too. If they lubed up and accepted their new bosses gracefully, it wouldn’t come up

I do recall many on this Board were particularly against USU coming in.  With the exception of SUDS, it is true that MWC FB is being dominated by the refills.  Granted SJSU has been a FB disaster.  Id say on the whole the current MWC @12 with a CCG is pretty awesome and will be even better after BYU comes to its senses and returns along UTSA or UNT.  Sorry UTEP, no amount of nostalgia will ever get you in.

Same as the old bosses. 

 

Suck it, old guard

 

Go Dogs! Go Broncos!

You seem to have a lot of animosity for the "old guard" when no one has said anything. Do you always manufacture conflicts in your own head? lol

Yes we are still bitter.  The WAC invaded and has conquered the  MWC left-behinds.  Nevada is probably the only school without a reason to be bitter since they got their lifeline when the MWC schools ran off.

In either case, the MWC schools just need to buy the WAC-name and history/record books (and a new commish) and take it over and all will be right again.

How bad must the WAC had been?

Well you know how it goes, with a full 5 years of better media rights, recruiting, and coaching any team can start to compete in a better conference

I'd be happy if we bought the rights to the "WAC" name from the sad remnant of that conference and just re-branded ourselves as the continuation of the WAC. It is just a better conference name.

Fresno State voted to kill the early '90s, 10 team WAC that had good bowl tie-ins and that was well positioned to be a true counterweight to the Big East. You deserved your decade in the wilderness

This is like hoodrats who move out of the ghetto to the suburbs finally and then still insist on driving low riders with plastic spinners because, ghetto pride, and all.

I'm pretty sure that all ten presidents voted for that expand to 16 teams nonsense... in any event, we didn't make it happen on our own. :P

Buying the WAC rights and re-branding back to it would be a pretty cool idea. The conference name is certainly steeped in history.

Yeah, and you voted yes. So did CSU but they already are CSU, it's not like anything we do to them is going to be worse than that

This Fresno guy also seems to have forgotten two years ago they were 1-11. It's all cyclical. And they gave us SJSU. This whole thread is just weird.

Don't put that SJSU voodoo on us... that came about because Boise and SUDS were going to the AAC. 

We definitely don't forget about the having been worse than SJSU just a few years ago either... but despite that, we're still 50-40 with two conference championships and four division championships since we joined in 2012.
