How would this not have worked out as a great conference in college football? If the “BIG BOYS” would have promised them a BCS Bid and ESPN or Fox ponied up some nice TV cash, this would have been a better conference than the Big East easily and the top 4 teams (Boise / TCU / Utah / BYU ) are pretty good rivals. Play the conference championship game in Denver or Las Vegas? You could have played the basketball tournaments in the same cities. And it’s REGIONAL! The basketball in the league would have been decent too with San Diego State and BYU both being top 5 before the NCAA tourney last year and the year prior New Mexico was top 10.
If this would have happened would the rest of the dominoes have fallen in the conference realignment game?
For those who can’t tell by the helmets I have this:
