Now that the MWC is on a nice little bowl run, and they all believe that TCU is better than Madden All-Stars, what will the Cougs and Ute fans say when (ok if, please, please, please) the Broncos squash them some Horned Frogs and the blood squirting from Horned Frog eyes is because of several big horseshoes planted right in their guts? Like Duck fans, most of them would sooner die than give the Broncos credit. (Thanks BoylenOver for the exception).
Even when you remind Cougar and Ute fans of numbers like 12-1 record against the current MWC, 50-12 against the Cougs on Lavell Edwards field in the snow, 36-3 against the Utes without a blue field in sight, they still harrumph like old ladies at a quilting bee and mutter, yeah.... "but your blue field is stooopid!"
I would love for the Broncs to be in the MWC. I hope they don't decide to leave BSU out and go it alone, because I think it could be a very fun conference. It will have a ways to go to match the SEC, but I don't see any reason that if the new and improved MWC had automatic bid money every year, split 10 ways (hehehee) that as the bottom of the conference comes up, that the new MWC couldn't be contending for a second BCS bid some years instead of the Big 10+1 (or +2, I get so confused). If that starts happening, look out Pac-10 and Big 12 for dominance in the West. Now, it won't happen overnight, but who would have predicted 2 BCS bowl bids in 4 years for the Broncos, or that in 2004 when Utah went for the 1st time that it become a regular thing for non-AQs to make it in?
Also, if the new MWC with the Broncos had an auto bid, that would leave 3 at large spots. Who is going to be a "BCS buster" if the MWC has absorbed the Broncos and has an auto bid? Western Michigan? East Carolina? Houston? Maybe, but not that likely. The "BCS buster" slot would then be available for a 2nd team from the seven auto bid conferences, in almost all years. Hopefully, a lot of years that would be the new and improved MWC.
Come on MWC, let us into your clubhouse!!!!!!
