Bronco bait. Conference expansion rumors are guaranteed to fly this week in Kansas City and Destin, sites of the annual Big 12 and SEC meetings. But the real smoke will be coming next week from Jackson, Wyo., where Boise media have been invited en masseto cover Mountain West meetings for what figures to be a strong push to bring Boise State into the fold in time to make a run at an automatic BCS bid for the MWC champion in the next round of big-money negotiations in two years. Let the record show that the MWC blog Mountain West Connection, reading the tea leaves, was the first to welcome the Broncos to the family.
Congratulations. Now we'll see if the BSU invite pans out.
