I'm sick of hearing about "BCS Busters." Of seeing that blue field. Of watching a team have runaway victory after runaway victory because every opponent it plays is at best a standout in the distinguished Mountain West Conference.

1. It is about $$$'s
2. If you look at size, the size difference of teams Boise has been playing is on par with most of the big name schools - look at a bunch of the rosters.
3. Boise has more pressure to win than other teams - they can't lose a single game every season in order to have a chance at a major bowl game. You don't get more pressure than that.
4. During the last 4 seasons Boise lost 3 games total by a combined 5 points. Every game was lost by a missed field goal the rest of the team set up. This is not to bash the kickers, just highlighting the rest of the team played each game to the point where they should have won if not for the missed, short kicks.
5. Bottom line, there should be a 16 team playoff. This latest NCAA "playoff" is a bad bad joke. This is actually a step in the wrong direction. Teams like Boise won't be allowed to play.
6. Boise moved to the Mountain West because TCU, BYU, and Utah were all good teams that would have legitamized an AQ status. All those teams split before BSU could arrive.
7. Now Boise is going to the Big East, in spite of the travel burden, in hopes that they can be in an AQ conference.
8. Boise is willing to play anyone, but they have to have takers. However, most teams don't want a loss on their record.
9. Boise had 13 players either drafted or picked up by the NFL within a day of the draft. I really think that speaks for the quality of the players.
