Well, well, well. Here we are again getting ready for the upcoming college football season, and as I watch the Tide Roll through their spring game.

I can't help but listen to Craig James, Reese Davis, and Mark May discuss the ramifications of a Boise State fitting into a BCS Conference like the SEC. It was said that they would lose 2 or 3 games for sure and that they wouldn't be a factor in the conference for some time.

OK first of all let me say that this article is MY RANT, it is MY OPINION, AND I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOURS.

Boise State has killed the W.A.C. seven out of the nine years they have been in the conference, two BCS bowls in the last 5 years as a mid major. The Broncos shocked the world of college football with the win over a very good Oklahoma Sooner team in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.

Why not move them up to the "next level"? What would we the college football faithful have to lose by watching Boise State play a major power like an Alabama, Florida, or even a Big Ten team like Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State or Ohio State?

Personally I think Boise State would make an awesome addition to the Big Ten, it would level our great conference out so we could see everyone play everyone, and it would give the conference a great new look, adding that caliber of a team to the mix.

They would come right in and be competitive from the start and it would be another way to add exposure to the Big Ten Conference, not to mention it would quell all the mid major talk about Boise State and maybe the Broncos could get some respect from the rest of the nation and college football in general!!!

I would also like to bring attention to Dan Scofield's Article "The Eight Mid Majors Ready for BCS Conference Expansion" its and excellent article and all eight of his choices are ready for full time BCS play!
