Boise State, San Diego State, and (drumroll) UNLV, All Sports to the AAC?

If Boise is unhappy they should leave. I don't think Boise leaving will cause the meltdown on the board you are longing for, though.

Yep. The meltdown here is still a month away. But yeah, these sources are wrong. Well, they're not really it's just this news is almost two years old. I already told you all about this but you all didn't listen. It's funny how it just takes one radio station to answer a question for the internet to go crazy.

 

But don't worry, Boise State is almost out of here.

 

No one believes the twitter guy either.

It's not Boise leaving it's would be coming with them. It's the numbers not the teams.

Yawn.  No one cares, or believes, UNLV is leaving either.

The only one that would be missed is SDSU.

AAC, Boise or SDSU likely working behind the scenes to make the MWC appear unstable (which it is).

Truth is the MWC is the stronger conference going forward but the teams have no trust or love for each other so the conference is doomed to failure.

San Jose State never should have been invited.

Moving to the AAC is a mistake.  Staying in the MWC is a nightmare.

He just wants to be able to come back and say, "See, I told you so."

Since you all won't believe me anyway I'll just debunk this crap.

Two years ago I posted about the BSU to the Big West move. Then the news came out and we all know what happened there. But I had mentioned the Big West had an alternative to where Boise State wouldn't have to lay so much to get membership. That was SDSU and UNLV. But at the time SDSU wasn't interested and the AAC wasn't crazy about UNLV. They wanted Air Force.

This was all brought back to light because of a sports talk radio show out of Birmingham a week or so ago and it spread. But now some AAC sports guys are running with it.

I'm surprised you all didn't see 'UNLV' and put two and two together. The Big West move was the obvious answer here and Boise State and SDSU have moved on from that.

And for the record, the AAC is calling Boise State, not the other way around. So you AAC guys don't even try that nonsense.

I would tell you what's happening but you wouldn't believe me anyway. Take it easy.

So you’re saying that Boise could just up and leave, and that it would financially harm 11 universities?  
 

Hmmm, now who files a lawsuit?

You know it’s Boise.  The sooner they leave the better.

That too, but his whole jam has been that he wants everybody to fall apart and melt down..I just don't see that happening.

For some reason, this reminded me of a quote from Norm on Cheers:

Can anyone more in the know about the NSHE advise if the Regents would ever let Nevada and UNLV split conferences again? For some reason I think they were dead set against that so I automatically dismiss any of these realignment threads that split the Nevada schools but I could be wrong...

But would you miss four schools? Would NMSU, UTEP, and Texas State make you happy? How about Grand Canyon? That's the problem. It's not what teams leave, it's the number of teams. Even if three teams leave why would Air Force stay on a conference that was gutted?

Since the MWC has already tried to breach a contract? I'd say Boise State would happily go to court.

If three schools leave 9 remain..That is the perfect number for football.  They could add an oly sports school to get to 9 for basketball..All good..

Is there any Hawaii insiders on here? Ask them to confirm this. Boise State and Hawaii have talked about a schedule agreement in football similar to the one the Broncos have with BYU. I understand Boise's thinking. That's an extra game every other year. That's extra $. What team/teams that are not names BYU can Boise State play in Boise that's sure to bring the fans, cash, and excitement? That's the word.

Yeah but you have to think of the locations of those schools. The MWC will need to get into some more recruiting areas. Established pipelines only go so far and then dry up with coaching turnover.

If BSU had a case, or were happy to go to court, they’d be there today.

Recruiting areas are old school. Coaches don’t travel in Buick’s anymore.

You are just begging for a melt down that won't happen..Just be happy you get to leave..Don't spend your time worrying about how other fans will react..
