Why the Big East might not need Boise State

I'll let you read the article yourself and then I'll simply give my conclusion after the jump.

So basically it comes down to this. If there are no more AQ conferences and instead the top ten schools get in automatically then the Big East would not need to spread itself thin by inviting strong western schools in order to save its AQ status. How does this effect Boise's future at making a BCS bowl? I believe that it actually hurts us because the only way a team gets to a BCS bowl is be in the top ten; there are no at-large berths. If the Big East no longer needs us then we will be left out of a stronger conference that would pretty much guarantee a greater SOS and the resulting higher ranking. It appears as if the current BCS setup is actually better for us, sad-to-say. Unless...

 

 

Unless the Big East thinks that by having Boise State, SMU, Houston, BYU will help ensure that the Big East is always represented in the BCS bowls, thereby ensuring a cut of whatever bowl monies its participant gets by playing in, and hopefully winning, said postseason.
