Mountain West opting for status quo, patience - ESPN

Apparently Boise St. will NOT be going to the Mountain West Conference. Is this an opportunity? Is this a chance for Dan Beebe to redeem himself and say," We will have a contingency plan in place that includes Boise St."? Or is this a first glimpse of sanity?

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany denies latest expansion rumors - ESPN

Geez, what the hell is going on? The whole thing is obviously an attempt to shake the tree to see what falls out. I hope plenty of other Conferences (ie big12, sec) move ahead with some sort of preemptive strike and leave these boneheads in the lurch.


For Discussion: What Precipitated all this "Realignment" Talk/Action?

Tailgating at the Alamo Bowl

What does Tailgating "cost" in San Antonio? Ive heard there is a charge for tailgating. Is this due to the individual Parties that are thrown or does is cost $ just to enter the tailgate area?
