Default Boise in talks to stay in MWC

Boise in talks to stay in MWC


Boise State could be forced to make a quick choice between the two conferences because the Mountain West and CBS have agreed to restructure their television deal, CBSSports.com reported Friday, citing anonymous sources.


A new deal could mean millions more for Mountain West schools through the 2015-2016 school year and make the Mountain West the dominant non-BCS conference in the country.

The Broncos are negotiating for the right to broadcast their own football games, a concession they are unlikely to receive from the MWC.

That map of the MWC is outdated TCU, Utah, and BYU are gone. Boise probably should stay in MWC w/out the Big East being an AQ conference anymore, there is no benefit for Boise to go but huge travel expense for some conference away games.

Boise State to stay in Mountain West


Boise State has backed out on a commitment to join the Big East and will remain a member of the Mountain West in 2013 - and San Diego State could be next to reverse course.

Boise State and the Mountain West announced Monday they had come to an agreement to keep the Broncos playing in the league they have been a part of the past two seasons.

Guess the $5M exit fee was too much to part with...

Mountain West might not be done; UTEP, other Texas schools discussed


Why stop at 11?

With the feeble state of the Big East and a wide-open lane to take control of the smaller conference realm, the Mountain West has room to get aggressive after Boise State decided to stay in the Mountain West and eschew the Big East.

Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson said today the league has been in talks with 3-5 teams. San Diego State -- which originally planned to join the Big East in a package deal with Boise -- is one of them.

A league source says UTEP, SMU and Houston have recently shown interest in becoming members.

BYU is the biggest prize available, but the Cougars seem committed to independence -- at least for now.

Thompson sees his league having as many members as his board of directors wants, whether that's 11 or 14. ESPN first reported the Boise news.

There is a rumor in higher circles that Houston and possibly even Tulsa, could be considered with an invite, from the Big XII in 5 1/2 years!...

My only hope is that the TV contract for Boise gets better. This year wasn't too bad only because MWC's channel went under but last year is was hard to get a game on TV here in Idaho.

Mountain West to pay up to $3 million in Boise State exit fees:
- The Mountain West agrees to pay up to $3 million of Boise State's exit fees to the Big East and the Big West. The money will come from Boise State's year-end distribution, which was to be forfeited, and is expected to be $2.5 million. The Mountain West will pick up the rest from its general fund.


— The Mountain West will extend an option to San Diego State to join the league before offering membership to any other institution. The right of first option to San Diego State shall expire on Jan. 31.
