Conference Re-Alignments Day 2

• Right on cue the Nebraska Cornhuskers have accepted an invitation to join the Big 10. Which leaves the ball in Texas' court. From the ESPN story:

University of Texas regents will meet next week to decide whether the Longhorns will remain in the Big 12 or switch to another conference.


The regents announced Friday that they will hold a meeting by telephone Tuesday for "discussion and appropriate action regarding athletic conference membership."

• The Mountain West, which includes Brigham Young, Utah, Air Force, Wyoming, UNLV, San Diego State, New Mexico and Colorado State will have a new member.

"We are pleased and excited to welcome Boise State University to the Mountain West Conference," commissioner Craig Thompson said in the news release. "Since our inception just 11 short years ago, the Mountain West has experienced tremendous success, and the addition of Boise State will further enhance that strength. The MWC continues to strategize regarding potential membership scenarios and bringing Boise State into the Conference is an important part of that evolution."

GO DUCKS!

The Mountain West is making a name for themselves, which is cool. The WAC is done!
