Isn't It Interesting?

That days (perhaps hours) after Auburn declared quarterback Cam Newton ineligible last year, the NCAA cleared him to play, yet we are now going on three weeks and we still don't know if Gerald Boldewijn and Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe are eligible.

Boise State's Status in Ever-Changing Conference Landscape

If the conferences really want to go to 16 teams, which I think will prove to be a gigantic failure, here is what will likely happen:

If Texas goes to the Pac-12, along with three other Big 12 teams, the Big 12 and Big East will merge, and Boise State would likely be invited into that conference.

If the Pac-12 won't let Texas continue its Longhorn Network, keeping all the profits for itself, there is talk that Boise State would be the other team into the Pac-12.  But I think that's just talk.  The arrogance of the Pac-12 will likely get in the way of their brains.

If these things happen, the remainder of the Mountain West Conference will likely merge with Conference USA.
