That means that if the MWC was to get Boise State into the conference by the start of the 2011 season (so that the Broncos played as a MWC team that year), then its records as a WAC team get to count towards the MWC. It might want to get on that soon if it was going to happen. Looking at 2006-09, the MWC jumps from eighth to sixth in the first criterion. In the second though, it remained in seventh place thanks to the dead weight at the bottom of the league. Its point total would jump to well above 50% in the third criterion, but because of its seventh place position in Criterion 2 and sixth place position (below fifth) in Criterion 1, the MWC would not even be able to petition. As far as 2008-09 goes, things look better. The MWC would soar to third in Criterion 1, edge into sixth ahead of the Big Ten in Criterion 2 (by a margin of 0.45), and it would be the top league in Criterion 3 by a wide margin with 28.75 points. In other words, the MWC would be in position to get an automatic bid without a petition.
