Re: Report: TCU to join Big East

The biggest loser of this may be the MWC. If the MWC had a conference with Utah, TCU, Boise St, BYU, and Air Force that is deserving of an automatic BCS bowl berth. As it is now they have BSU and Air Force.
Boise State has to be feeling real silly right now. They move into the Mountain West this summer thinking they would join Utah and TCU. Both have since jumped ship, leaving Boise making a lateral move at best...
