    "After two months of deliberation, the Big East will finally formalize its expansion plans with the addition of San Diego State, Boise State, Houston, Southern Methodist University and Central Florida, beginning with the 2013 season."

    There ya go, Boise. There's your AQ.

    So hopefully the Mountain West will wish Boise and SDSU good luck in whatever conferences they can find for their non-football sports, add NMSU, Idaho and Utah State, and just concentrate on being a western version of the MAC. Not the greatest conference in the world by any means, but a solid, regional and respected one among the non-AQ leagues.

    Are things getting a little out of hand when San Diego State and Boise State are in the Big East and Pitt and Syracuse are not?

    Maybe Utah Valley can finally get in the WAC.

    Meanwhile, East Carolina, who has applied, campaigned, made follow up calls, sent cards, flowers, chocolates and flirty text messages, is shut out again...for San Diego State.

    Just in case you believed for a brief minute these people knew what they were doing

    Exactly where my mind went, Baron.

    Remember all the wailing about how could the ACC possibly take two teams from the Big Least, and right around the time of the founder's death no less? How rude and inconsiderate and heartless and it's everything that's wrong about college sports?!?!

    STFU
