So, AP reports that the Big East is going to formally invite Boise St, Navy and Air Force (Football only) as well as SMU, Houston, and Central Florda (all sports) to join.
Now, truthfully, we don't much care about this since we've apparently dodged a bullet and now don't have to worry about any of the conferences involved. But at the same time, isn't it kinda fun to think about Craig Thompson hiding under his desk crying and mumbling "but we gave you everything, Boise State! Why would you leave?!?!?"
And further, what does the future hold for the BE and the non-AQ Conferences? The WAC is gutted, with what strength it had going to the MWC, which looks as though it will now be no better (if even that) than the old full strength WAC, even if they do merge with the soon to be weakened CUSA. And then the Big East becomes basically another version of CUSA.
Maybe the Big East keeps its BCS AQ status, but good god... they might be even less impressive than the TCU/Utah/BYU MWC.
