The Boise St. Broncos, scheduled to join the Big East in 2013, reportedly had second thoughts about leaving the Mountain West while trying to decide what to do with their non-football sports and seeing multiple Big East schools look for a way out. But with the Big West emerging as a possible repository for football-free sports, the decision has been made to proceed, reports Brett McMurphy:
The Broncos had several recent discussions with MWC reps about staying in the Mountain West, sources told CBSSports.com. Boise State officials wanted to finalize its decision this week, because they didn't want to attend the Big East's meetings, which start Sunday, in Ponte Verda Beach, Fla., if they weren't going to join the league.
Great news for the Big East, which could lose the Louisville Cardinals and Connecticut Huskies right away if realignment goes haywire thanks to moves by the Florida St. Seminoles, Notre Dame Fighting Irish or others.
