Yawn,

You're either a member of a prestigious BCS conferece. Or you're not. Outside of Notre Dame, the rest of college football could go away and we really woudlnt lose anything

And no the BCS is not going away.

You think significant(see previously BCS bowls) will be setting up agreements with WAC or MWC teams?

LOL.

No.

Regardless of what changes there are to the landscape of college football, there will always be 2 constants

1. Utah will be "IN"
2. Utah state and byu will be "OUT"

The future of football in utah,

is UTAH

Try winning the PAC-12 first before you brag.

Or perhaps you are an insider that is embarrassing your home state by failing miserably on the biggest stage possible. Merely belonging means nothing. Earn some respect, don't just expect it by simply being on the roster. Lets not forget that Boise State (another outsider) completely owns all 3 Utah schools right now.

FAIL Chris B

Mid-Majors are what give CFB its charm. Everybody loves to see smaller teams compete with, and beat, the big-boys. I know back when Utah was in the MWC there was nothing I loved more than to see the Utes take down BCS teams (which they did quite often).

Also one of the 12 spots in the new system will be designated to the highest ranked team not in the "Big 5". More often than not that team will be from the MWC. It is still a solid, and respected, league.

Don't feed the Duck, er, the Chris B. I am really excited to see what the Aggies can do in the MWC. I think this is going ot be a great conference for the Aggies, and a lot of fun to watch. I can't wait to see the Aggies take it to the Broncos and win a conference championship.

Go Aggies! Go Utes!

Looks pretty good. The only sad thing is that if the winner of each division plays for the conference championship, then Utah State will never be in the conference championship because they're with Boise State. I hope they find a way to pull it out.

@Chris B

Please, do tell me how being in a BCS conference is even relevant unless you can win the Conference? The only reason Utah every went undefeated was because they were in the MWC. They would not have been undefeated if they would've been in the PAC in 2004 or 2008. But oh well. CONGRATS for thinking that just because you're in the PAC you will be National Champs. Hopefully U can at least make a bowl game this season.

Never is a big word Mr Jimmer. The Aggies have been on a great trajectory since Gary Anderson came to town. HOPEFULLY some of his energy and a lot of his defense wore off on them. If they can keep the ship moving forward they will be in a good position to challenge BSU. The Aggies have been so close to beating some big programs the last few years. I hope the Cache Valley residents will continue to get behind this team and keep pushing them forward. Let's have some faith in the Aggies!

I hope you're right, Magna, I would like to see them do well. But with Anderson departing and Peterson still at BSU it's unlikely. Hope springs eternal.

The San Diego paper listed the SDSU opponenents for the next four years; disappointed the DN didn't do the same. Here they are for next year:

Home: Boise State, Colorado State, Hawaii, Wyoming
Away: Air Force, New Mexico, San Jose State, UNLV

I'm glad the Aggies have BSU at home, and think the schedule looks very balanced. Not playing SDSU for the next two years (at least in the regular season) will help maintain peace in my house. Good luck USU!

"You're either a member of a prestigious BCS conference. Or you're not. Outside of Notre Dame, the rest of college football could go away and we really woudlnt lose anything."

With that logic Utah's BCS bowl wins mean absolutely nothing since they weren't in a prestigious BCS conference at the time. In addition, how's that defeat feel in the hands of Utah State last year? If you lost to a nobody what does that make you?
