Second Thoughts And Regrets As Landscapes Shifts Underfoot

Sources: Schools may rejoin MWC

Boise State, San Diego State and BYU have had conversations with Mountain West membership about the possibility of returning to the league, sources told ESPN.

The talks originated after last week's decision in Denver by the BCS commissioners to award an automatic access bowl berth to the highest-rated champion to the "Group of Five" conferences. That decision in essence put the Mountain West on equal footing, as far as playoff access is concerned, with the Big East starting in 2014.

As much as I listen to sports talk, you'd think that I would have heard that one. But nada!

That makes since to me. It's an easier way into a BCS game; I would think.

It never made sense how San Diego State got in the Big East in the first place.

Boise State to stay in Mountain West

Boise State has backed out on a commitment to join the Big East and will remain a member of the Mountain West in 2013 - and San Diego State could be next to reverse course.

Boise State and the Mountain West announced Monday they had come to an agreement to keep the Broncos playing in the league they have been a part of the past two seasons.

Mountain West might not be done; UTEP, other Texas schools discussed


Why stop at 11?

With the feeble state of the Big East and a wide-open lane to take control of the smaller conference realm, the Mountain West has room to get aggressive after Boise State decided to stay in the Mountain West and eschew the Big East.

Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson said today the league has been in talks with 3-5 teams. San Diego State -- which originally planned to join the Big East in a package deal with Boise -- is one of them.
A league source says UTEP, SMU and Houston have recently shown interest in becoming members.

BYU is the biggest prize available, but the Cougars seem committed to independence -- at least for now.

Thompson sees his league having as many members as his board of directors wants, whether that's 11 or 14. ESPN first reported the Boise news.
