HAWAII MOVING TO THE MWC IN 2012 or 2013!!!!!!
Finally some respect!!!!!
Congrats but I don't know if I would say it is about respect. This almost certainly means TCU will be receiving an all-sports invite to the Big East.
The MWC has (almost) officially become the WAC 2.0.
What a shame for that Conference. Every time it looked like they were on the verge of getting AQ status a team leaves.
If Utah/BYU/TCU had stuck around, then you throw in Boise State, Hawaii, Fresno and Nevada paired with San Diego's resurgence and Air Force's dependable 8 wins and there is no way anyone could have said the Big East or ACC were more deserving of an auto bid to a BCS game.
Damn right its about respect, Hawaii has been the longest member of the WAC with 32 years, you think we'd get an invite if we only were a .500 team?? No sir.
And I didn't know TCU is about to leave the MWC, when is this bound to happen??
A lot of speculation that the announcement will be forthcoming within the next week or so.
With Utah leaving for the PAC 12 and now TCU leaving, then yah I agree WAC 2.0.
But I'm more excited about the BYU vs. Hawaii rivalry starting back up.
Oh I bet you are!
Some CLASSIC wacky-WAC battles from back in the day.
Didn't you guys crush their BCS dreams one year also? Or was that before the BCS, cannot remember... But BYU was ranked VERY high and Hawaii pulled the rug out iirc.
I know that all the Hawaii fans I run across still have a chip about BYU. Good stuff.
