The WAC is on its last legs as a football conference. Utah State and San Jose State will gleefully leave the WAC for the greener (it's all relative) pastures of Craig Thompson's MWC. Couple that with Louisiana Tech and University of Texas San Antonio leaving for the C-USA and the WAC isn't left with much. UTSA hasn't even played a game in the WAC yet. By my count, that leaves just Idaho and New Mexico State left. This would be bad for Boise State too since they planned to park their non football sports in the WAC, but this would be devastating for Idaho. The music is about to stop in this game of realignment musical chairs and it doesn't look like the Vandals will have a seat. Rob Spear prefers not to comment.
The college football brain trust that got together to meet last week came up with another idea that isn't terrible. It sure stinks a whole lot less than the terrible "Four Teams Plus" plan to save the Rose Bowl. This new plan would place semifinal games at the higher seed's BCS bowl site. For example, if Alabama is number one, they would host the number four team at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. Same with Oregon or USC hosting at the Rose Bowl. I think it's only fair that Boise State should get to host in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Blutarsky would like to take a chance to remember what good the BCS gave us. I'm not quite ready for that yet.

We have some belated birthdays from over the weekend to take care of. On Saturday it was reader howiestheman's birthday and on Sunday it was bsu415's birthday. Today reader tbl2020 and current player Brenel Myers share a birthday. If I could, I would buy all of you some Jeni's Ice Cream and you would all be very happy that I did.
