Go MWC. Eat crow espn!!!!
The two wins over the Arizona teams were not expected, but are surely welcome!
That just adds to the value for BYU's blowout of UCLA. It'll help BYU's SOS to
be playing (beating) teams in conference that have beaten Pac-10 teams, some of
which should have winning records by season's end (maybe even be ranked). Let's
root for Arizona next week against the overrated Georgia.Still, the
way the SOS formula works (in the BCS ranking formula), the Pac-10 will still
end up with a better SOS for its conference than the MWC. Too bad all
conferences and teams can't start out the year from zero!Good thing
Wyoming didn't lose their game to a nobody. BYU should whip them, too.
Consecutive shutouts is certainly possible.I'm amazed at the
progress BYU has made between games so far. Hope that attitude continues. No
MWC Fans better hope the PAC-10 gets it together. These victories could prove
to be hollow if the losers of this weeks games end up with mediocre seasons.
The MWC will move up to #3 in the ESPN ratings I bet. Only behind the SEC and
Big 12. Keep it up MWC and it just might be possible to get a one loss team into
the BCS, just like the so called BCS schools do. Keep it up and the Big Least
just might be dropped from the BCS and the MWC take their place. If only SDSU
would pul their heads out....Looks like UNLV is better than people
were saying and this makes the Utes look better. BYU had an outstanding game vs
UCLA. The MWC looks like they have at least 4 teams better than any teams in the
Pac 10, that is of course not counting USC as they are the class of the west and
maybe the whole country. TCU and Air Force should be top 25 teams and join Utah
in BYU there. This is all great news!
You have to give it to the conference, they really stepped up today. UNLV
upsetting ASU is unbelievable! One thing I think this does show.
The coaches know how to get their players up for the big games, but is the other
games that they lose that hurts the conference (SDSU losing to Cal-Poly). Way to go MWC
Why is this story so buried on the D News website? This is HUGE news for the MWC
and every BYU football fan in the country should spread the news around. At this
point in our schedule we need TCU, Air Force, Utah and New Mexico to look like
top matchups. BYU fans should be cheering for Utah and TCU every week so we can
have some Top 25 competition this year. BYU looked unstoppable yesterday but we
don't always play so hot on the road and we're playing AF, TCU and Utah away
from home. If we want to get national recognition our competition has to be
noteworthy so GO MWC!!!
I guess this goes to prove the MWC is the best Football league in the West! :)
Lets see that eastern elite media bias give the MWC some love finally!But seriously, did some of you hear the sports radio debate on whether the MWC
was even better than the WAC? Pleeeeeease, don't show your ignorance people! A
conference is not made up by one good member (Boise State) who has been begging
to get into the MWC for years (proof enough for me)! Most of their teams belong
with Weber State and S. Utah in Division 1-AA! For proof, ALL independent
conference strength polls (Sagarin etc) EVERY YEAR have put the MWC Conference
so far above the WAC as an OVERALL conference, the WAC might as well be division
1-AA (many of their members came from the Big Sky and Big West!) MWC IS BEST!!!
Gotta say that the MWC looked really good today, maybe the best football weekend
ever for the MWC, at least collectively. And WOW, UNLV beats ASU at their place,
best MWC win this year so far, by supposedly the worst team. But i think they
win 7 games this year and finish fourth in the MWC, they got some players, and
that Utah game was closer than the score indicated.
