Oh I think some would go, especially if say 5 offers were sent out for 2 open spots (Boise plus two).  I think you would see schools fight to not want to be the ones left in a greatly reduced MWC without the others.  Whether they would be invited is a different question.  If the MWC gets a few NY6 games in the next 6 years, or if the AAC would be able to get out of their 12 year contract early, you would see the votes needed.

You think the AAC, with BSU as their 12th school, is would want to go to 14?

If they could renegotiate in 5 years as opposed to 11 on their T.V. deal?  Abso-fucing-lutely.  OR if Boise and say one other school out of SDSU, UNLV, CSU, and AFA snag a few NY6 bowls from the AAC in the next 6 years I think the votes would be there to ill the competition.

Adding two more time zones and the MWC's best T.V. properties (Boise, SDSU, AFA) would likely be enough to trigger new T.V. negotiations with ESPN.

Sounds like a monumental stretch of the imagination to me.  The MWC as a whole is best served by resolutely standing its ground.  You guys aren't going anywhere, other MWC teams aren't going anywhere, the AAC is in no position to conduct a nationwide conference raid and hardly anyone in the MWC has any interest in playing AAC teams.  Hair holds all the cards but he's too fukking stupid to play the hand.

I would crush it as MWC commish.

How is it a monumental stretch to think the AAC would want to negotiate sooner than  the 12 year mark?  Seems like these athletic departments like money but what do I know?  Seems you are making a lot of wild assumptions based on interactions with a few dozen posters on mwcboard.

No, I was saying that it is a monumental stretch to suggest that the AAC would go on a nationwide raid and successfully lure otherwise non-interested programs solely to facilitate adding BSU.  It is further tenuous at best to think that the AAC presidents would vote in favor of something that risky.

UConn being in the aac is what dropped their brand. A few years in the big east and they will be right back to where they were. 

that makes zero sense...Kevin Ollie dropped their brand with Level I violations including “failure to monitor” that lead to his firing and show cause order.

You, I, @Spaztecs@fanhood, and the American people all know that SUDS will do whatever it is Boise State tells them to do.

I will never admit to anything.

Where did the MWC finally fall on Tier 3 rights? Last I heard they were going to the schools. If that's the case...is it possible Thompson is a stable genius and is actually looking ahead? Somebody in one of these threads stated all BYU wanted was to get those rights. He tells BSU to play along and drop the side deal or walk...and if they walk he brings back BYU for all sports with the Tier 3 rights and sweetens the pot for Gonzaga by giving them a full share even though they are Oly sports only. Would SDSU still leave a MWC that is adding BYU and Gonzaga?

Neither BYU or the Zags are coming into the MW. Nor are the Aztecs leaving.

According to Jeff Caves of KTIK radio in Boise.   Interesting video on this.  I agree with him 100 percent on everything he covered in this video.

https://www.facebook.com/ktik931fm/videos/1498250493658992/

He lost me when he said that we could just schedule H/H's with SDSU/Fresno/USU/etc.

If Boise State bailed out on the MWC at this point, I really believe that the current teams would blacklist us, and for good reason. You would have to build a case with not being able to schedule MWC programs as a starting point.

Also the AAC tv deal is TRASH, and I do not care about any of those teams.

This is all just nonsense and offseason bullshit.

As for the ESPN/AAC deal, there’s a lot of production costs incurred by the schools themselves. Some of the schools are equipped and others have to invest in production capabilities.  The same was true for the MWC and thats a major reason why they chose FOX over the ESPN/ESPN+ model.

I agree with the bolded but I disagree on the AAC's tv contract.

6.94 million is good money while ESPN/ABC/CBS offer good exposure.

66% of AAC football games will be live on ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU/ABC/CBSSN (with the rest on ESPN+)...34% of basketball games will appear on ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU/CBS/CBSSN (with the rest on ESPN+)

You say non interested but are basing that on nothing.  If Boise leaves, the conference is suddenly CUSA.  They would be interested.

LMAO, BYU is not re-joining the MWC as is, let alone if they lose their only nationally relevant school.

No, it's garbage as it sits right now.  12 years for only 6.9 plus productions costs is an atrocious deal.

You're being just as suppositional about eleven other schools' reaction to a Boise State departure. I'd say a more likely scenario would be those schools taking a "wait-and-see" approach.

As for Boise State's prospects, past results are no guarantee or indication of future returns. Especially in an altered environment.

Yawn.  I have been hearing that Boise is "one bad seasons away from X" since I was 7 years old.  Boise is not Wyoming or CSU.  We expect to win here, so we do.

Your "national relevancy" is probably very overestimated, same as byu*'s. In fact, I would believe byu* has a broader market and fan base.

The AAC contract sucks. And no one, including Air Force gives a shit about playing on the east coast. You're a like a god damn parrot. Find some new material douche.

$6.94 million for 12 years is good money?  $3.9 in 6 years is a better deal. And BSU $5.6 for 6 years is even better.

Keep running around in circles chasing your tail douche. Staring at your own ass seems to be the only thing you're good at.
