Agree Seanbo, HOWEVER, the problem with your scenario may invovle timing.
MWC isn't going to hear about AQ status until well down the road.
So BYU, Boise, TCU are making decisions based on guesses about what the future landscape looks like.
We keep hearing Air Force is being courted by the BE.
I can't believe they would even listen to the BE.
The BE looks like a train wreck.
I believe Air Force would have to find a new home in a non-FBS conference, or go to the BE for all sports (not sure BE is offering that).
But more to the point, the MWC may be more likely than the BE to be BCS AQ going forward.
They should sit tight and tell Marinatto where to go.
Maybe the B12 will come a-callin'...
I was simply stating what was ideal for the MWC not necessarily ideal for the schools. If any of the 3 are offered membership in the Big 12 and Oklahoma and Texas commit, they should join, but for the MWC, there hope is that the Big 12 takes combination of Big East schools and Texas C-USA schools and leave them alone.
With the demise of the Big East, and if TCU and Boise stays in the MWC, I can see the MWC getting the Big East's AQ in a year or two. If BYU is not taken by the Big 12, then I can see them rejoining the MWC. That's the MWC dream scenerio.
