first off quit joking that Syracuse is better than BC in football. When was the last time they were good? That's like saying SJSU is better than Nevada because the won more BWC titles. No one cares what happened 10, 15 years ago. Most conferences want the hot school. I don't see the MWC talking to Fresno St. or Hawaii(who was in a bcs game 3 yrs ago) They're only talking to Boise St. who has been better the last 1o years, who can blame them. I'll give WV being better than BC but its hard to finish higher than 3rd when Miami and VT are in your conf. and like you said as soon as they left who was the co-champ. BC!
Quinn I don't think I've ever posted in the dream except for defending Fresno St. Would you like me to start a thread in the dream conf. about how UMass sucks and that D-II schools and sucky FCS schools belong in a better conf. than them? I bet you'd post a comment about it.
Perhaps you just need to be less sensitive.
This is a dream conference for fun thread and I listed my dream conference lineup...for fun.
You said "no way the MWC takes Montana, Idaho, etc over Fresno".
I responded that in 20 years Fresno COULD be at the same level as SJSU...that Idaho and Utah St. COULD make progress and become better candidates. And guess what: that COULD happen.
This wasn't a thread like the Big Ten forum, and me making talking about Drake or Chicago St. being B110 candidates. This was a thread where in my view of 20 years from now, I said that the 2009 WAC #3 team Idaho, the FCS Championship Runner-up the last 2 season in Montana, and a market replacement team in Utah to be potential candidates 20 years from now. These are within the realm of a possibility 20 years from now in my scenario.
And if they weren't, it wouldn't matter. Panther did a "4 corners" conference with all the farthest distanced schools in the same conference. Why? He was having fun.
If you are hypersensitive to the dream conferences thread because a CSI member listed schools in a conference and didn't include your school, then perhaps these threads are not your cup of tea. Because it was you that took a word like "COULD" as a call to defend your beloved Fresno St. This thread had nothing to do with Fresno St. and you opted to hijack it. Just take a step back for a second and take a look: you are all upset because in a dream conferences thread about the year 2030, you feel your feelings have been hurt because someone picked other schools currently in the WAC as potential candidates along with 2-time FCS championship game runner-up Montana. No demotion to D2 for Fresno was involved, i had them simply staying in their current conference. So there is no reason for you to feel upset over this. But again, if you dont' like the dream threads, I can only recommend avoiding them.
Now back on topic...I'll repost the original lineup now.
