What's sad is that everyone knew they would +++++ it up too.  

All they had to do was keep the division scheduling. The beauty of our divisions was that for the most part, our fans could travel to away games.

Where are the real old-timers to complain about Front Rangers sticking together? 😄

Also, Boise: New Mexico?  That seems like a disservice to your fans.

Is there a Trophy ?

I can't imagine it's bigger the Jim Bridgers Rifle.

 

No trophy, but I propose it be called the Integrity Bowl.

Wyoming has played Utah St more than AF all time.  

Sure but barely and mostly before 1980. We didn't play them from 78-2001. We played AF almost as much and we started playing them in 1958. I think it would be crazy to think USU is a bigger rivalry than AF.

You know it's bad when the 'winning' fans (CSU, WYO, AFA) think the schedule is crap, too. 

They needed 3 guaranteed games. 

Add: wyo-usu, UNM-afa, etc.

I'm ok with the setup. COuld be better but for Wyoming is is a good setup.

Oh ... It's outstanding for Wyoming. CSU and Wyoming got exactly what they wanted. This smacks of fallout from the AAC situation.

This is how they should've been (the only outlier is UNM, since the rest of the front range is taken):

Air Force: CSU/WYO

Boise State: NEV/USU

Colorado State: AF/WY

Fresno State: SJSU/SDSU

Hawaii: SJSU/UNLV

Nevada: BSU/UNLV

New Mexico: SDSU/USU

San Diego State: FSU/UNM

San Jose State: FSU/HAW

UNLV: NEV/HAW

Utah State: BSU/UNM

Wyoming: AF/CSU

 

Serious who came up with these? They need to consult the MW board committee next time. We all probably spend more time thinking about this stuff while working our actual jobs than people in the conference offices haha.

It makes sense in a way. The ADs don't care about fans and rivalries. They just want someone in the CFP or big $ bowl. I don't think they achieve that, but do gild a path for someone each year. 

UNM just hasn't been good enough for so long, that we get tossed aside and frankly don't have a football rival in conference. But I do enjoy playing some teams more than others. SJSU is pretty much at the bottom of that list.

I tweaked it a bit but largely agree.   The schedule should have been the following.   This whole thing reeks of front range shenanigans.  +++++ those guys.  Too damn bad they didn’t go and +++++ up the AAC.

Looks like we have the new BORG.

I think that this sucks; fans care more about matchups with rivals than contrived matchups with teams that have been ranked by flawed formulae.

Here's another way, a better way, I think. Keep the same divisions and, for the last game of the season make it into a quasi-playoff:

Mtn 1 vs. Pac 2

Mtn 2 vs. Pac 1

Mtn 3 vs. Pac 4

Mtn 4 vs. Pac 3

Once you get outside the top 4, you match teams who have not played each other, aiming for evenly matched games, low costs (travel proximity), viewer interest and in an effort to balance everybody's home vs. away game schedule.

For the top 4, the home team is even numbers one year and odd numbers the next, unless the two teams met earlier in the season and then you switch home teams from that earlier game. After that last game, then you pick the two highest rated teams for the Championship Game.

Advantages:

1. we get to keep our regional rivalries

2. we probably do a better job of determining the top two teams for the Championship Game

3. we often increase the strength of schedule for the top two teams as their last pre-Championship Game win is a quality win against a top rated team from the other division.

4. the four "semi-finalist" teams will be appealing television games so our broadcasters will like the idea. They can be hyped, played back-to-back, and might get on a more widely visible network than they otherwise might.

There you have it. Yoda for Commissioner!

Hey, leave facts like more games and a difference of 5 decades out of this. BTW, who would actually WANT AFA as their guaranteed game? I would be pissed about that arrangement. I look forward to finally having a 1 year break from them, finally a year without the unique game prep and worrying about which D-lineman won't make it past that game.
