Breaking News was released this morning about Boise State and the Big East Conference.

The exit fee for San Diego State should they wish to stay in the Mountain West conference is $0. According to the official contract signed by both Boise State and San Diego State with the Big East States, ” Should any team back out of the contract they will have to pay a $10 million dollar exit fee unless all of the teams should decide to leave.”

We are expecting a press conference this after noon by San Diego State to address what the move will be for SDSU. If San Diego State is going to stay in the Mountain West Conference we expect a press conference today. January 1st 2013 the San Diego State Aztecs will officially be a member of the Big East Conference and Big West Conference. The new TV deal with the Mountain West Conference is with CBS. We will have more coverage on our facebook page.

Brett McMurphy has given us more gems by adding an updated segment on San Diego State.

A Mountain West conference source with knowledge of the situation said San Diego State wants back in the Mountain West, but the league is holding up the process as it decides whether there is a better fit than the Aztecs and if there is a school that can deliver more value. The source said if SDSU returns to the Mountain West, the Aztecs would have to come back on the conference’s terms.

We have heard reports from San Diego radio hosts that San Diego State wishes to stay in the Mountain West Conference if they can get out of the Big East Conference without having to pay the $5 million dollar fine.

The Mountain West is looking to add teams that will bring more value to the conference before San Diego State is re-admitted. Should San Diego State be re-admited to the Mountain West this is how the divisions will fall.

  1. Moving back to the MWC might be our best bet for all sports. As much as I like the idea of cheaper travel to Big West games, the loss in stature is a big deal for basketball.

    And now that the Big East is a total bust? Get out now!

    • I would have to agree with you! I would have loved to see SDSU play on National TV! I would have loved to see much strong competition in football! With Boise State leaving the only right move for San Diego State is to stay in the Mountain West. I do hate the way the TV contracts work in the Mountain West. I really want SDSU to allow us Journalism majors to produce the games so that all of San Diego can watch them!

  2. There is a good argument that the MWC is more prestigious in most sports going forward. SDSU should stay. MWC could be the new member of the “big six” conferences.

  3. There is reporting from some quarters that the terms of the Boise State, Houston and SMU contract specify no exit fee if there are no other members west of the Mississippi, and the SDSU contract if there are no other members west of the Rockies. If that reporting is accurate, then SDSU has a get out of jail free card with Boise State leaving.
