The MWC has its good days and its bad days, apparently.
Last Saturday, with BYU losing to Florida State and Utah losing to Oregon, was what we in the biz call a "bad" day.
Heck- San Diego State even lost to the mighty Vandals of Idaho.
And unfortunately we non-AQ conferences have very little room for error. The second anyone from the MWC loses to a BCS team, ESPN is quick to say "A-ha! I knew the MWC couldn't play with the big boys!"
But respect is neither earned nor lost in one week. The MWC is still a great conference. Here's hoping we bounce back in week 3.
