Boise State's proposed move to the Big East, reported here by Tom Luicci, is now making less and less sense.
First of all, let's point out the obvious flaw of Boise State being in the Big East. I don't want to get too far into the geography of it, but that's a point that needs to be made.
But, since the move was for football only, that's not that big of a deal.
Now, it's the moves that are reportedly happening that are really making the geographical problems far too great to ignore.
Syracuse and Pitt? Gone.
TCU? Gone, and they never even got there.
Now, West Virginia is on their way out.
Boise State is best served to wait this out. Let these teams actually move around, not just talk about moving. As it stands right now, the situation is just too unpredictable for the Broncos to make a commitment of any kind.
Brian Murphy reported on Tuesday that Boise State and Big East officials met in Washington, D.C. Nothing detailed was talked about, but the meeting did happen.
The Big East is well on its way to completely fading as a football conference. As a basketball conference, it will survive. But right now, it needs to bring in some star power, not lose it.
Now, Boise brings some power, but do they bring enough to attract big name schools to come to the conference?
As it stands right now, that's a tough argument to make. The college football scene seems to change every minute. Until things change, the Broncos are best served to wait it out.
Without Syracuse, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and TCU, does the Big East have enough of a name for a team from Idaho to play in? Until some big names come in, and not leave, Boise State is best served to hold where they're at.
