    We know that TCU got dealt an unexpected visit to Boise when they gave notice they were leaving the MWC? While we know that one team needed a bye or non-conference game 11/23 to offset SJSU (playing Navy) and 11/30 to offset Hawaii (playing Army) – but did Nevada earn the undesired 11/23 bye by scheduling BYU 11/30, which may have not been what the MWC wanted?

    Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!! MW Schedules! Earlier than you thought, Kevin.
    The reason I was so anxious is that I want to make a season prediction, and at ths point games are just getting moved. So I’m set.

    What is a Tennessee-Martin? and how did they end up on Boise’s schedule? They play in a high school stadium (7,500). Boise is already stuck with Southern Miss (0-12) last year. What type of home schedule is that? With Wyoming and New Mexico coming to town, are there any good teams coming to town? This is not a good schedule!

    Finally! Now we can get this thing rolling! I see SJSU will be on national TV for at least three games (Utah State,Fresno State and Navy). The MWC is going to be a beast once everyone see what kind of talent the will field…keeping both Boise and SDSU in house makes this upcoming season one to remember. Can’t wait to battle Boise on Dec 7th!

    Boise State will once again be the dominant team in the MWC but there will be tougher challenges than people think.

      Bosey State’s day is over! Kellen Moore is now long gone. Their SoCal recruiting bonanza is also dried up. Welcome back to reality!
