I think its the height of chutzpah for the MWC to be claiming that its teams
belong in the BCS as automatic qualifiers when it can't even fill its less than
first tier bowl slots. Granted, TCU is a top ten team this year, but the Big
East, to which the MWC likes to compare itself, has half its members in the BCS
top 25 this week and will have no problem filling its bowl commitments and
probably the unfilled MWC slots as well. Before the MWC goes running off to
Congress to complain about mistreatment, it should first earn its way on the
Somebody last week on another article asked why there is a dislike for some BSU
fans. I suggested that a reason is because some BSU fans come on the newspaper
sites on the home base for Utah and BYU and spout off. Examine the responses so
far on this article. The second response is a BSU fan. I think he/she proved my
I don't think the Vegas Bowl would ever want your sorry team to play, all byU
does is give the MWC a bad name and not to mention the state of utah!!...Go UTES
"Now the MWC is a one team conference just like BSU is in the WAC."you're half rightthe WAC is a one team conference, butthe MWC has three solid teamsas many ranked teams as the SEC, Big
12, and ACC conferences, and more than the Big East conference:4

re streaks:Am I missing something here? 8-0 last year in conference and
4-0 thus far this conference season puts the Utes at 12 in a row in conference.
I work with a guy that is a commissioner for the Vegas Bowl. He told me they
didn't want BYU for the last 3 YEARS!!! HAHAHA. Cougar fans, you should be happy
though. It's fun traveling to all the different bowls and playing teams in other
conferences. I traveled to the Fiesta Bowl (pitt), Emerald Bowl (Georgia Tech),
and Poinsettia Bowl (navy). (Sugar was too expensive, but let's not forget the
mighty Crimson Tide...SIKE). Who cares what bowl it is as long as you support
your team!! Of course dont get your hopes up to get to a BCS bowl any time
soon!! Leave that to Utah, BSU and TCU! GO UTES!Utah girl am I
Didn't the Vegas Bowl take the 3rd place team last year? I seem to remember
Utah being undefeated and in a BCS game. TCU as the 2nd place team being
upgraded to a great matchup with Boise in the Poinettia Bowl. And 3rd place
BYU, reeling from 2 embarrassing losses to TCU and Utah, being the "choice" of
the Vegas Bowl. And then getting beat by the 5th place Pac-10 team.
As bad as the bottom of the MWC is, about as equally bad as the middle of the
WAC, playing a MWC schedule has already moved TCU ahead of Boise. And with Utah
up next week, they will stretch that lead.Just a fact. WAC is
terrible. MWC is still a strong conference with Utah/TCU/BYU.
He said Utah to Vegas, not my little pony, and his band of merry men.
re Cougar Fan:......they did last year!
Who cares about the speculation of who goes to which bowl after the year has
ended?? I do not care because there is too much football to be played within the
month of November. Let's look at the bowl picture at the end of the season then
we can assess where everybody is going."Time for the big 3 of this
conference along with Boise State to break off and form a new conference." This
sounds like an interesting concept. What would it be called? The Mountain Sky
Conference or the Western Mountain Conference?? Sorry, the Mountain West
Conference is all ready taken.Regardless of the outcome concerning
the bowl situation, GO COUGARS finish out the season with four wins. Remember,
one game at a time. Cougars, focus on who you are playing and the wins will
follow. Don not take any team lightly!!! Please make sure to bulldoze the Uties
when you play them.
Go Cougars for the Boise Bowl!
What else besides football does Boise State have to offer?
I like that scenario too but will the Vegas bowl really take the MWC third place
Wow hard to believe that the all mighty big and powerful power house conference
is having this problem. Wow impressive! Now the MWC is a one team conference
just like BSU is in the WAC. This looks great for a conferance that has been
before congress pleading its case that they deserve an automatic bid. Time for
the big 3 of this conferance along with Boise State to break off and form a new
I like the scenario of TCU in the BCS bowl, Utah in Las Vegas, & the Cougs going
to a new bowl!
