So as we all found out last night, Boise State officially withdrew from the MWC and is joining the Big East in football. I believe that this is great for the football team and the university for many different reasons. One of my biggest arguments for joining the Big East had been that it would end up being a stepping stone for the pac 12 or the big 12 (with the pac 12 being a better fit of course). Even with this move, I realize that it would probably be another decade before the pac 12 even considered BSU, unless they try expanding to 16 in the near future (which happens to be a distinct possibility). However, a thought occured to me earlier in regards to our olympic sports. We're currently trying to get them into the Big West. There will be a vote on it in September. Now lets say that Boise States oly sports get in. How does that affect Boise States future Pac 12/Big 12 chances? Would Boise States olympic sports being in a D1AA conference make them less attractive despite the fact that our football team may be good and in a higher conference? Football is the driving force in collegiate athletics, but it hasn't been enough to earn that invite to the pac 12/big 12. What do all of you think? Does the Division that Boise States oly sports are in really matter to the pac 12/big 12?
