The would violate the gains we made getting into the P12


We are in now - and the door is just plain shut behind us. This is what comes with the conference system - the conference operates to promote its members and protect them from having to prove their mettle year after year.

If we could get booted from the conference for having a string of bad years - that would mean we would have to actually compete on the field - either to keep from flashing out or to earn our way back in. That's not what splitting up the marketplace between the P5 conferences means. The P5 closes off access to EVERYONE ELSE. There is no way for any other team to earn their way in. We are in, and we will stay there for decades - no matter how damned good Boise State might ever be and no matter how bad we stay.

This might all seem very unfair - but we are on the winning side of this unfairness - so it is a good thing.
