After reading some comments on ESPN and some brought up some good points about what if MWC snags Montana from the WAC?
First off Montana has been a very good powerhouse in the FCS and will most likely beat the bottom dwellers of the MWC. There stadium has a 25,000 capacity and they consistently fill the stadium up on game days. They have a very loyal fan base similar to Boise's.
Their basketball team is also very decent as they been consistently been making post season play either in the tourny or the NIT or CBI tournaments. They've also scheduled Nevada and Utah this year and last year in the tourny they played New Mexico tough only losing by 5 points.
They are also within the Mountain West's foot print. If given invite they will most likely jump at it in a heart beat other then joining a weaken WAC with lots of traveling for its sports.
