Boise State Non-Committal To Big East, Meeting With Mountain West Officials

The Boise St. Broncos have been paying close attention to the proposed NCAA football playoff discussion it seems, because they are becoming increasingly non-committal to their planned move to the Big East conference. According to Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports, Mountain West representatives met with Boise State officials this week in hopes of persuading the school to stay in the MWC. As McMurphy points out, Boise State has yet to formally withdraw from the Mountain West, and now that the BCS is set to remove the automatic qualifier and non-automatic qualifier designations in 2014, it's questionable whether a move to the Big East would actually benefit the school.

The most interesting aspect of the developing situation is that a school spokesman gave McMurphy the following answer with regards to the meeting with MWC officials: "We are actively monitoring the changing landscape in college athletics and remain committed to making the best long-term decisions for Boise State." The Broncos are scheduled to join the Big East on July 1, 2013, but that comment sure doesn't sound like they are committed to the move.
