2012 Mountain West Media Days: Craig Thompson Says Boise State Return Is Possible

Speaking at the conference's media day, commissioner Craig Thompson told reporters that the Mountain West would "still entertain" the possibility of bringing Boise State back into the fold if the school's foray into the Big East Conference doesn't work out, as Chris Murray of the Reno Gazette-Journal reports.

This summer, Boise State officially announced that it would be joining the Big East as a football-only member after years of being part of the Mountain West. There was speculation that the school might try to break that commitment in order to participate in a more geographically logical conference, but it's still part of the Big East going forward.

SB Nation Denver will have continued coverage of media day at the Mountain West. VisitMountain West Connection for more on the conference.
