Should the Mountain West Conference get an Automatic Bid to the BCS?

The MWC is pushing for an automatic bid to a BCS bowl game. If approved, the MWC will become the ninth conference to receive an automatic bid to the BCS.

Do you think the MWC deserves an automatic bid to the BCS?

After this past season, it seems like there should be no question the MWC deserves an automatic bid, but if you look at the conference as a whole, you can argue that the quality of the conference is not BCS-worthy. 

After Utah, TCU and BYU, there is not one team that can be taken serious.

Air Force, Colorado State, UNLV, New Mexico, Wyoming, and San Diego State should not be in a conference that gets an automatic bid to the BCS.

If the MWC becomes a BCS Conference, do you see any team besides Utah, TCU or BYU making it to a BCS bowl? I don’t. 

Instead of the MWC becoming a BCS Conference, those individual schools should push to be moved to an existing BCS Conference.

Put Utah and BYU in the PAC-10, call it the PAC-12 and then the PAC-10 could adopt a conference structure that would allow them to play a conference championship game.

Throw TCU in the Big 12. Take Arkansas out of the SEC and put them in the Big 12 as well, and the SEC could then replace Arkansas with Southern Miss or South Florida. 

What are your thoughts?
