As much as I don't like the idea or forming a whole new conference, it seems to be a real possibility. So who would you invite? There will be cupcakes in any conference, but don't forget that SEC and Pac12 cupcakes are still way better for your SOS than bad non-BCS teams; and some are even on par with the best non-BCS schools, such as Fresno State and SDSU. So no non-BCS cupcakes, obviously. If it was up to me:
Boise State, SDSU, Houston, SMU, Fresno State, Air Force, Tulsa, BYU, Utah State, Toledo, NIU, Nevada, Arkansas State, UCF, Navy *, ECU *
* football only.
