I think the Mountain West has more to lose than even the Big East. If some of these rumors are true and lets say the Big Ten takes Nebraska and Mizzou. Then the Pac-10 turns around and takes Colorado and Utah. That would leave 3 slots for the Big 12 to replace. Who would they take?

What about TCU, BYU and Air Force.

If that happens that would leave only 5 schools...UNLV, SDSU, Wyoming, New Mexico and Colorado State.

Their version of the C-USA out west is the WAC. So they could possibly have to add 4 teams from the WAC? Ok, BSU.....um Fresno State.....ok if that happens the MWC is done.

If there is a large shift in the conference landscape, the MWC will have no choice but to combine with the WAC. If they lose 3-5 teams, together they'd have a 12-14 team conference.

If the MWC loses Utah only, they could still get the 7th BCS bid. If they lose TCU or BYU also, kiss that BCS bid goodbye.

The scary scenario is that if the Big East dissolves for football, and then the MWC is weakened and doesn't get it's bid, you're basically going to have 5 conferences who have easy access to championships, and depending on how much raiding goes on, the Big 12 could lose its bid too, though I feel they could restock with enough teams to keep it (even if they somehow lost OK, OKST, TX, and A&M to the SEC - in a far-fetched scenario).

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
