I just finished reading this article, and I can't help but feel a little perterbed by the pitiful WAC.
I don't really get into conference rivalries (or conference pride, for that matter), but to insinuate that the WAC is on par with the MWC is just laughable.
Just look at the head-to-head matchup of every team in both conferences (matchups are based on pre-season media days rankings):
TCU vs. Boise State
BYU vs. Nevada
Utah vs. Fresno State
Air Force vs. Louisiana Tech
UNLV vs. Hawai'i
Colorado State vs. San Jose State
New Mexico vs. Utah State
San Diego State vs. New Mexico State
Wyoming vs. Idaho
Is there a game on that list that the MWC would not win? I mean, things get a little hazy in the middle, with Hawai'i and San Jose State, but those two games are even at best.
The rest are clear wins for the MWC.
I know I shouldn't let it get to me, but the WAC bugs. I can't stand those potato farmers and snake handlers.
