RE: MW Commissioner says expansion is possible regardless of Big 12 expansion
Win-Win? (Someone on this forum with friends in MWC high places please forward these thoughts to your MWC Commissioner.....Thanks in advance). (:>) Just For Fun > > > > > http://www.meangreensports.com/

Add these 4 Texas schools & inflate The Mountain West Conference TV market ($$$$$$) dramatically along with new bowl switchover possibilities for the MWC (as in the Heart of Dallas Bowl for starters; that is, a bowl game which is presently a CUSA host team versus a Big 10 opponent plus.......a bowl game that North Texas had 36,000 Mean Green fans attend 2 New Years Day's ago).
? ? ? ? Anyone in the MWC want to play a Big 10 school in a bowl game?

* These 4 MWC add-on's would continue burgeoning rivalries in their time zone & the Mountain West time zone is workable for any of these schools.

Possible 4 New MWC East Members:

*North Texas (bowl bound this season--UNT's last bowl was on January 1, 2014 & went to 4 bowl games last decade). Note: Quick! Someone who knows MWC powers that be have them call our new, progressive & the most affable UNT AD Wren Baker now! LOL!

*UTEP (a former WAC program with the legacy of having a NCAA National Championship in basketball).

*UTSA (a growing, progressive athletic program from a fun city that is bowl bound this season)

* Rice (why not add an Ivy League kind of presence to the MWC with an out of orbit financial endowment allowing it to do anything athletic-wise it damn well pleases).

4 New Top 100 TV Markets For the MWC (with 2 in the Top 10):

5 Dallas-Ft. Worth 2,588,020 *D-FW soon to surpass Philadelphia to become 4'th ranked TV market plus 2 G-5 bowl games in this TV market already--HOD Bowl (Cotton Bowl Stadium) & Armed Services Bowl (Amon Carter Stadium, Fort Worth)

10 Houston 2,215,650 Rice U (An Ivy League'esque presence & why not a Space City bowl game with MWC ties)?

36 San Antonio 881,050 A growing UTSA football program with its Alamo Bowl Stadium & possibilities for a MWC bowl even if its a 2'nd bowl game in the Alamo City--great destination city for visiting fans, too.

91 El Paso 339,130 (UTEP already has a history with several MWC programs).

RE: MW Commissioner says expansion is possible regardless of Big 12 expansion
I'm sure there will going many scenarios that will be discussed about as the MW TV contract ends and talks with various networks for a new contract. I'm sure there will be numbers that are crunched to see if the MW added the Tex-4 would that have a good impact.

It sure would make some good regional divisions. But the big thing will be how does the front range feel about now playing schools out west for football? (there would be only 1 cross over game) If they don't mind then, this could happen.

As for basketball, pretty much only 14 conference games will be a given and that could be good to get some OOC wins like the ACC and Big East did before.

We'll see.

The Tex-4 of CUSA play conference games in Miami & the eastern seaboard that are further from Texas than the western group of MWC schools.

I think adding 2 USA Top 10 TV markets (DFW & Houston) to the MWC makes for an interesting scenario, but as you say--we'll see.

Update: It appears North Texas will get another Heart of Dallas Bowl invite tomorrow. We took about 36,000 fans to that bowl last time we were there on January 1, 2014.

The HOD Bowl could easily become a MWC bowl because of North Texas being in the DFW area. As UNLV could attest the HOD officials do run a first class operation.

I wanted the Armed Services Bowl over in Fort Worth but that will have to be another year apparently

Take UTSA and Rice.

UTEP as back up, if one won't bite.
