This makes the Mountain West better than the Big East ACC" said Michael Wilbon during PTI's Big Finish when asked for his thoughts on Boise St. to the Mountain West, "In my opinion it already is."
Wow, an ESPN guy actually agrees that the MWC is a better conference than the Big East and ACC.
I think the Mountain West is now where the SEC was when I was in college about 10 years ago or so.
Alan writes: What do you think about putting the best football teams from the MWC and Western Athletic into a conference and giving those teams an automatic BCS bid?
Graham Watson: I mean really, if we're talking about making a "Super Conference" there are really just four, maybe five teams that would be good enough -- right now -- to compete on a BCS level consistently. Sure, you could throw like Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Air Force and, I don't know, Louisiana Tech in there as well, but I still don't think it would be a comparable conference to the rest of the BCS conferences.
