On the other hand, I feel for Boise State. Their conference doesn't allow them the opportunity to play a schedule like OU's. Yes, they are moving to a tougher conference, but even then the Mountain West is no Big 10/12, SEC, or PAC-10. What Boise needs is an invite to one of the big conferences.
But that will not happen, even though it should. The Boise/Idaho TV market is not large enough to warrant an offer from one of the Big 4 conferences I guess. On principal, Boise belongs in one, and the Big 12 needs a couple of extra teams. The Big 12 should invite Boise State and TCU, making the conference a stronger one, giving Boise and TCU the stage to prove themselves on. That's the right thing to do, we'll see if it ever happens. I doubt it, it's all about the $$$.
