Very unlikely WAC will have football in 2013

That's what WAC commissioner Jeff Hurd said at the WAC media days. The WAC needs 8 teams but currently only has 2 and Hurd said there just aren't six teams out there ready to move up. That means that it is looking more likely that Idaho and New Mexico will have to play as independents next season. Is there are rule on how many times you can play any team in one season?

Boise State comes in at No. 24 on Yahoo's countdown (HT: NYBroncosFan)

It seems to be a little repetitive to keep reading the same things about the team, but I guess the majority of the people reading it are not Boise State fans. And if I knew nothing about the team, then this would be a pretty informative article. Although everyone is going to look foolish when Jimmy Laughrea wins the QB job and no one even mentioned him! (I kid, well sort of)
