Panther,thanks for posting the above article.
However,NO news here.Commissioner Thompson has previously indicated that the MWC was not currently looking to expand with Boise or anyone else.
He has indicated that the MWC is primarily focused on getting a BCS autobid.They apparently believe that this can be accomplished with the current 9 schools using the current BCS rules in order to obtain the 7th BCS autobid for 2012 and 2013.
I SUSPECT that if that plan "goes awry" that at some point they will go with plan B,which is to call in some reinforcements.Therefore,the next three years and especially next year should be key to see whether the MWC can get any "follow-thru" from a great 2008.Time will tell because it always does.

Thanks
Freaked
