So this is sort of a feeler/introduction post from a fan of the Boise State Broncos. It is starting to sound a lot more like my favorite team might be joining your conference as a "football only" member, which is weird because I am unaware of what else they could join as.
So, yeah... This isn't probably the ideal situation for either your conference or my favorite team, but here we all are. I think if you all add Air Force, Houston and SMU, then this deal will work out great. It'll be pretty cool to be in a conference with two service academies. And you have a better TV deal than our current conference, which is good. And Boise State will help you guys keep your BCS bid, maybe, which is also good although it'd be nice to see the BCS collapse into a heaping pile of ruin that is also on fire and sinking into quicksand full of sharks.
I hope if your conference does invite Boise State that the members then do not all up and leave like happened last time we joined a new conference because this is kind of getting old and I'm starting to wish my school would just find a home already and maybe stay there for a while. And I hope you guys are open to changing the name of the conference, because it is going to be weird being in the Big East. Maybe even just put an asterisks behind it or something? And please let us wear blue at home because that whole stunt by the Mountain West is probably the singular reason Boise State fans are so open to moving to another conference with members so far away.
Anyways, hello from a Boise State fan. I hope this weird arranged marriage works out between us, if it does in fact occur. And if it doesn't, good luck with all of the realignment crap and I hope you guys come out of this thing okay.
