Seems like Boise can find a home in the BW since the BW is easing Hawaii's painhttp://www.staradvertiser.com/s?action= ... =150741615
Big West Conference commissioner Dennis Farrell said, "We told Hawaii they were only obligated to pay (subsidies for) those schools that were in the conference at the time they were brought in."
San Diego State will join the Big West in sports other than football in 2013 and there is speculation that Boise State is renewing a push for membership of its nonfootball sports. The Broncos were rebuffed last year after trying to gain entry as a package deal with San Diego State.
Farrell declined comment on a Boise State bid, saying, "If I had any conversation, (with Boise State) it should probably be private."
What — if any — membership changes the conference makes will not impose additional subsidy burdens on UH, Farrell said.
"It would be a little unfair if, all of a sudden, we brought in another eight schools or something that would force Hawaii to pay travel allowances for those schools," Farrell said. "We just didn't think that was fair."
Farrell said "San Diego State was aware of that when we brought them in."
The Big West Board of Directors is scheduled to meet next week, when membership could be voted upon.
