San Diego State & Boise State – To The Big East On Hold? What in the world is going on right now in the land of the Mountain West? Right now Boise State is experiencing one hell of a time, trying to find a conference in which to place their sports teams. This question is currently being debated so thoughtfully that Boise State might pull out of the Big East and stay in the Mountain West Conference. This is causing a complicated issue. What will San Diego State do, if Boise State stays in the Mountain West Conference? Right now this question cannot be answered. San Diego State is doing its due-diligence to get Boise State into the Big West for all sports but football.
From looking at articles all over the net it, look’s as if Boise State has no clue which conference it will be in next year.. Its about a 50-50 split that they will turn on San Diego State and stay in the Mountain West. The Mountain West is remarkably close to becoming an Automatic qualifier, so to Boise they are not moving for the (AQ) status. Yes Boise State will have an improved chance to reach the National Championship in the Big East compared to that of the Mountain West. If the Mountain West can sign a T.V. deal, I do think Boise State will stay in the Mountain West. San Diego State, on the other hand, is moving to the Big East for money. San Diego State will make more money in the Big East, than we will make in the Mountain West.
This clip from the San Diego Union Tribune by Brent Schrotenboer:
SDSU’s contract with the Big East states that if Boise State does not join the Big East as planned, the league will “discuss in good faith” SDSU’s admission into the league as a football-only member.
“For clarity, neither party shall be obligated hereunder in the event that the conference does not have as a member on (July 1, 2013) at least one football-playing institution that is located west of the Rocky Mountains,” the contract states.
In other words, the deal will be reconsidered if Boise State is not part of it – and SDSU could walk away from it without penalty. (Site)
