I'm tired of all the haters putting down Boise for joining the Big East. So it's on the other side of the country. None of them thought Oklahoma, OSU, Texas, and Texas Tech in the Pac12 was too far. LaTech is in the WAC. Not to mention that Hawaii has and always will be been further from its nearest conference "neighbor" than Boise is will be from it's furthest Big East one. Simple fact of the matter is that the conference is named the Big "East" and because Boise, Idaho is not in the east it doesn't make sense to them. Truth is that if it wasn't called the Big "East", it wouldn't be an issue; and when they change the name of the conference, after the BB only schools break away and take the Big East name with them, it won't be. Well, it shouldn't be but it probably will because the haters have to hate. They have to find something to criticize.
