In the days leading up to the Mountain West meetings this past weekend, it was a near certainty that Boise State was on the verge of landing an invite from the conference.
Then — unfortunately for the Broncos — all conference hell broke less.
Speaking at a press conference that’s still ongoing as I type this, commissioner Craig Thompson announced that the conference would not be expanding, which means Boise State will remain in the WAC. For now.
Citing the uncertainty on the collegiate landscape, Thompson stated that the conference’s board opted not to make a decision to expand at this time.
He did add, though, that the topic of expansion is still very much alive.
In other words, once the Pac-10/Big 12 imbroglio shakes out, the issue will likely be addressed again by the conference. And could, possibly, include any Big 12 schools left out of the Pac-10/Big Ten mix.
