UH will only play one year in the Mountain West

Post by Desert Isle »

After that the MWC officially disappears and is replaced by a new conference made up of the former Conference USA and MWC members. The league could have as many as 24 schools. :o

Mind-boggling, huh? Only two years ago Boise State left the WAC and all appeared to be lost. Of course, the WAC is crap now, but at least it still exists. Hope Craig Thompson has fun at Minnesota.

12 game regular season......divisional playoff round, followed by a championship game. Winner gets the great distinction of playing in the Las Vegas Bowl vs. the 5th place Pac-12 team. LOL Yay for this corrupt BCS system.

I know it'll never happen, but why do we pay the travel subsidies all the way to Hawai'i? Shouldn't we just pay from Cali to Hawai'i? Oh well-

A rumor was floating around on various message boards yesterday that the new conference's tentative working name (subject to change) will be the National Conference.

I like that because it means whoever wins a conference title in any sport will be referred to as the National Champion.

2 rounds of playoffs means no late-season home games for us, though. I don't know if I like it...
