The Mountain West’s Pyrrhic victory

I’m sure on one level the MWC is getting a lot of pleasure out of gutting the WAC, but if the news about Utah State and San Jose State being expansion targets is true, isn’t that tantamount to a surrender on the AQ-slot in the BCS front?  Apologies to Boise State, but nobody is going to confuse the WAC replacements as a group with the MWC’s outgoing losses.

The one plus I can see is it looks like the MWC may be headed towards twelve members, which means it’ll be the next mid-major conference to generate revenues with its own championship game.  If nothing else, that’ll help pay Arent Fox’s lobbying bills.

UPDATE: The Mountain West decides to play the cards it’s been dealt.  The BCS dream lives on, I suppose.
