It's been a long time in coming, but I'm happy for the Aggies. They're finally going to be in a competitive conference in both football and basketball.

Good luck!

I don't know why the byu fans aren't screaming at holmoe to get them into this conference.
Good luck to the Aggies, if they do well in the MWC they will be more relevant and go to better bowls than byu.

And yes, byu "fans", even with their growing pains the last 2 years, Utah is still more relevant than byu.

Go Big Blue!!!

An awesome time to be an Aggie. The MWC represents what a conference should be, regional teams (plus a trip to Hawaii) building rivalrys. USU has worked hard for this opportunity and is poised to make an immediate impact on the conference. The MWC will be a great home. GO AGGIES!

With six teams from the WAC and six from the MWC, the argument can surely be made - is this the WAC or the MWC. Certainly not as strong as of conference as MWC used to be with BYU, TCU and Utah. But stronger that the old WAC without New Mexico St and Idaho. Good luck Aggies.

@Go Big Blue

You mean the WAC 2.0 is a good home for the aggies. Make no mistake about it guys. Nothing has or will change for the aggies. Until they consistantly win and go to a place like the Big12. That will never happen though.

It's more like the WAC 4.0 or the MWC 3.0, but, regardless of what you call it, the Aggies can be far more successful in their new conference than the arrogant Utes have been since joining PAC.

Keeping score since the Utes joined the PAC:

Top 25 Finishes
USU 1
BYU 1
Utah 0

Bowls
USU 2
BYU 2
Utah 1

The only thing little brother on the hill has accomplished since joining the PAC is to plaster PAC logos all over town.

@ ekute:

This is an article about Utah State and the MWC, not BYU and the MWC. Obsessed with the Cougars much?

Yes, it's nice to live in the reflected light of big boy programs and pretend you're one of them.

USU will finish in the top three. Whereas BYU would finish in the bottom 3, that's why they won't join a conference.

Yes, it's nice to live in the reflected light of Notre Dame and pretend you are them.

Love that Independent logo!

@Sports Fan

It's not a new conference. What does it take to make you aggies see that?

Honestly, as a BYU fan there are times I miss the old MWC and the rivalries like AF, CSU, and SDSU. Then I remember who their commissioner is and my nostalgia is snuffed out. Maybe BYU can have a set up with the MWC similar to ND/ACC someday. I'd love to play some of these teams again. For now we'll settle for our new rivalry with BSU every year.

"Yes, it's nice to live in the reflected light of Notre Dame and pretend you are them."

Actually, BYU doesn't have to live in anyone's reflected light.

We have our own National Championship, our own Heisman Trophy winner, our own exclusive network television contract, our own national fan base, and our own perennial Top 25 team... just like Notre Dame.

BYU's "Independent logo" is simply BYU's logo. We don't have to pretend we're a big boy in a conference that we've done absolutely nothing to enhance.

Well BYU did something to enhance being an independent. New Mexico St. & Idaho are your new band of brothers!

Sorry, you might have some goodies, but you are not "just like Notre Dame."

Hey guys BYU won a national championship once.

Good luck to our brothers up north. Good to see you moving up.

Go Utes!

BYU had nothing to do with WAC football dissolving and leaving NMSt and Idaho homeless.

Considering Utah's 37-history of complete mediocrity in the WAC, however, U should be more respectful, especially since losing to the only WAC team U played last season killed your bowl chances.
