Boise State, Big East Met Thursday To Discuss Conference Options

As reported earlier, Big East commissioner John Marinatto met with Boise St. officials on Thursday to discuss the possibility of the Broncos joining the Rhode Island-based conference as a football member.

"We had an informative meeting today with officials from the Big East Conference. Commissioner John Marinatto made a presentation regarding possible ideas for conference expansion and what role Boise State could potentially play in those plans. We appreciate the outreach on the part of the Big East Conference and will continue our due diligence in this matter.

Boise State also said they would continue to take their time in evaluating their future conference affiliation. Most likely, they're going to wait and see what happens with West Virginia and Louisville and their attempts to head to the Big 12. If they leave the Big East, the need for Boise to head East for a new conference seems less worthwhile.
