Boise State Joins Mountain West Conference

The college football shakeup continues. Boise State football has accepted an invitation to move to the Mountain West Conference.

Boise State has dominated the WAC for the past decade, posting a record of 122-20 since they joined the conference in 1999.

This move will definitely give Boise State more competition which will most likely lead to more BCS bowl appearances.

However there are two major hurdles that Boise State will have to overcome. They will have to annually face an upstart TCU team and a BYU team that is built for years to come despite losing former starting QB Max Hall to the NFL.

I believe that Boise State will be able to stay effective in the MWC because of their famous high powered offense. As long as their offense is not slowed down, this was a good athletic move by Boise State.


Four More Schools to Join Pac-10 Conference

I think it is safe to say that the Big 12 Conference is dead. According to reports, Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will join the Pac-10.

I am in favor of a Pac-10 "super-conference" because of the annual Pac-10 title races that will be taking place between the best football programs in the country. Also, there will be more national attention placed towards the Pac-10.

Now since the Pac-16 is almost a done deal with only Texas A&M needing to join to fully complete the "super-conference" Pac-10 fans can celebrate.

Every year there will be some of the greatest college football games between elite and evenly matched teams. What's not to love about the soon to be Pac-16?
