A lot more people would be interested in Utah/Bama or Utah/Texas than seeing *yawn* Fla St/Cincy.

The ACC and Big East have no business even being BCS conferences. And, if the Boise St/ Oklahoma game is any indication, the BCS would get a lot more viewers by having more mid-major representation.

It's Rocky v Apollo Creed, who wouldn't watch that? The only thing we love more than a true 1/2 matchup is seeing Boise St or Utah (TWICE!) crash the party.

Yeah that Georgia v Hawaii game last year had me enthralled all night long. We definitely need more of those.

Kansas v. Va Tech... yeah, what a snoozer.

Well it's in SoCal. You can still see mountains in the distance, at least.

Why does everyone keep going on about that game?? Everyone seems to forget what Boise State done in 06 and they only seem to look at last year and say that a mid-major can't stick it out with the big boys.

I would like to see Boise State join the Mtn. West.
I believe then it would at least be on par with The Big East by having TCU, Utah, BYU, and Boise State in the same conference. They might beat up on each other for awhile and miss a BCS game as a result, but it would give more exposure and increase recruiting over time.

In exchange the Mtn. West could give Wyoming to the WAC.

...sounds good.

But I still think TCU should be in the Big 12. They might not be as dominant as they are in the MWC, but at least they'll be in a BCS confrence.

They need to take the best teams out of the WAC and MWC and join and should make it a BCS conference, that'd be pretty sweet.
