Big East Realignment: Boise State, Memphis Will Be West Division Opponents

When the Boise St. Broncos and the Memphis Tigers join the Big East on July 1, 2013, the two schools will likely be in the West division of the Big East. Memphis' "ability" to be in the West division is one of the reasons the school was accepted into the Big East, according to conference commissioner John Marinatto. That there is a West division to the Big East is still likely spinning heads around parts of the country, especially when taking into consideration that San Diego State is also going to be in that division.

The Idaho Statesman's Brian Murphy writes that the West division will be Boise State, San Diego State, Memphis, Houston, SMU and an undetermined team at this point in time. As One Bronco Nation Under God believes, this setup the Broncos have in the new Big East makes it look like a newer version of the WAC. Is this really an upgrade over the Mountain West?
