Jeff Jacobs seems to think so. Per his calculations, if Boise State heads to the Big East, making a BCS bowl this year actually costs them $14M! So a TCU win today might make the decision to pull the trigger and join the Big East a lot cheaper and more attractive to Boise State.

If Boise gets to a BCS game this season, its Mountain West year-end revenue distribution would be about $7 million. In that case, under Mountain West rules, Boise State would have to surrender the $7 million, plus an immediate exit fee of double the year-end distribution ($14 million in this case).​

That would be an incredible $21 million dinner bill just to feast at the Rent or Piscataway in 2012. If Boise doesn't make it to the BCS, it would be $6.9 million ($5 million exit and $1.9 million revenue). And with a year's notice, meaning the Broncos could play in the Big East in 2013, it would only cost the year-end distribution for 2012.​


I've been wondering what has been taking so long with respect to an announcement about new Big East members. Wonder if Boise State has been dragging its feet waiting to see if they lose before accepting. Anyway, curious what people's thoughts are about this.

Second year in a row where Boise misses a BCS game due to a makeable FG at the end of the game. That should be all the reason they need to join an AQ conference. BSU come on down, you'll love life in the Big East.

Definitely an interesting idea. Big time $ figures getting thrown around during all of these realignment talks. It can be easy to forget how much money it really is for a University that could potentially be spent elsewhere.

Yeah exactly, Who would want to spend 21 Million $$$ to join the BE??? I gotta think there would be no way the BE would pick up a majority of that cost.
