Matt Brown, with SB Nation mothership, writes about Boise State being, well, unhappy with the MW not negotiating BSU separately anymore. This is a follow up article/newsletter to the MW releasing the tv deal.
This is, clearly, my favorite line of the whole thing:
For my money, I still think the MWC needs Boise State football more than Boise State football needs the MWC, and that thinking will inform how a resolution is found.

Nahhhhh. Ultimately I think Boise State and the Mountain West just ‘figure it out’ in the end. Boise State isn’t going to jump ship to the AAC to leave the other sports to the Big West, or whatever.
