Zero comments on an intriguing & history making season for the Mountain West?

A 7 game conference schedule + 2 Western state Unis. playing a minimum of 1 game vs 7 Mountain West Unis. & 2 or 3 MW Programs playing previously contracted tilts vs Both former ‘Conference of Champions’ club members.

Since the Beavers & Red Cougars fit perfectly into the western footprint of Idaho – Utah – Nevada – California – New Mexico – Colorado – Wyoming the Fandom travel across the Mountain & Pacific time zones isn’t much further than the former Colorado – Utah – Arizona – California – Washington – Oregon Trips.

Uni. O Hawai’i has always been the exception for it’s entire history in the W.A.C. & M.W. football membership.

With a Pac/MW merger (with Air Force downgrading to FB-only membership to move the rest of their sports to the Patriot League alongside Army and Navy and U of Denver and Seattle U being added as non-football members) these should be the games the merged conference played on Thanksgiving weekend:

Air Force-Colorado State
Boise State-Utah State
New Mexico-Wyoming
Oregon State-Washington State

California schools and Hawaii take turns playing each other at end of year.

The combined conference would use the 3-5-5 format the ACC had planned to use.

Z-Man Air Force is excellent with Mountain West Conference they DO NOT need switch to Patriot League.

Also Z-Man you need to CONTROL yourself when it comes to College Football games at Night & Thanksgiving weekend.

As A Boise State Fan I do not care who they play on Thanksgiving weekend I just want to cheer them on whether they play Utah State,Air Force,San Jose State,Hawaii etc..

I would think Air Force would want to strengthen its ties with Army and Navy. Plus even with a merger, the Pac regaining power conference status isn’t guaranteed.
