The time is right for Boise State, Mountain West to get together

Come Monday, we could finally get our happy-ever-after moment. The Mountain West’s Board of Directors (its schools’ presidents and chancellors) is holding its annual meetings in Jackson, Wyo., and numerous reports indicate the league will hold a vote on whether to extend Boise State a long-awaited invitation.
Any expansion by the conference would require approval from seven of the nine presidents. But for a couple of exceptions, the league’s decision-makers have remained largely mum on the subject, avoiding even mentioning the B-word. The parties that do talk make sure to couch any statement with the requisite cautions about the tenor of their deliberations.
