Big East Expansion Update: Boise State President Bob Kustra: 'Too Late' For 2012 Move

Foiled again. A rumor we were hoping was true was that the Big East was putting pressure on Boise State to replace West Virginia for the 2012 football season.

Boise State president Bob Kustra ended those hopes today saying that his school couldn't make a move for 2012.

"It's too late. I can't imagine how anyone can pull that off. We would never want to pull it off in a fashion that dealt shabbily with our existing partners in the Mountain West. I don't think that could ever work," Kustra said.

Now it's back to the drawing board for ideas on what to do if (and it doesn't seem like a big if) West Virginia leaves for the Big 12 no matter what happens with the lawsuits.

Who would be your dream invite for 2012 if you could invite a school to join the Big East early? What do you think the Big East will actually do for the 2012 season if it is "too late" to invite another school?

Stay tuned to Big East Coast Bias and our Big East Expansion section for more news on the subject.
