Boise State Blog Reacts To Non-Invite From Mountain West

Boise State is now officially regulated as the backup plan for the Mountain West who is now going in a wait and see mode to see what happens from the Big 10, Big XII, and the Pac-10 in the expansion landscape.  Here is the reaction from SB Nation's Boise State blog OBNUG:

After today's non-invite from the Mountain West, I now know how the WAC feels. Boise State played the courtship game with bigger and better conferences for pretty much all of 2010, all the while knowing that the WAC would be waiting with open arms to welcome them back if things didn't turn out. Of course the WAC would. The WAC is Sun Belt West without the Broncos.

And now the same thing is happening to Boise State. The Mountain West has nothing against expanding to ten teams, but with the possibility of bigger and better schools falling like table scraps from BCS conference realignment, the MWC is content to sit back and see what comes their way. If nothing good happens, then they can just give Boise State a ring, and the Broncos will come running at a moment's notice.

With Boise being the bridesmaid in this situation they will jump at the chance to join a league that would increase their revenue to approximately $2.6 million by being in the Mountain West.
