Mountain West Conference Expansion

So the Mountain West is going to lose 3 teams. First they will lose BYU next year who will become an independent Football team. Next year they also will lose Utah to the Pac 12. In two years MWC will lose TCU to the Big East. MWC will also add a couple teams first joining the conference next year will be Boise State, Fresno State, and Nevada. And in two years Hawaii will be joining the MWC. The MWC had 9 Teams this year in two years they will have 10 so an addition of one. The WAC is one defection short of becoming a complete joke conference, and Hawaii would push them past that ledge. At this point it would not surprise me at all to hear that the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs have accepted an invitation to the Sun Belt. Rating the New MWC will be hard next year it will be very competitive with TCU and Boise State playing each other so I will give it a B for next year, but in two years you lose TCU and gain Hawaii the conference will basically be a bigger WAC so I'll have to give it a D-.

MWC Teams: (Next Year)
United States Air Force Academy
Colorado State University
University of New Mexico
San Diego State University (Will leave in 2012-2013)
Texas Christian University
University of Wyoming
Boise State University
Fresno State
University of Nevada

University of Hawaii (Will join in 2012-2013)
