Conference USA and the Mountain West had a great idea -- get together and form a nationwide football-only super-conference that was sure to get an automatic BCS bid for its champion and good TV money.

Only problem was, they talked to the Big East about it.

Losing teams and in danger of losing its own BCS auto bid, the Big East decided to procure the idea for itself...along with the some of the best football schools from the MWC and C-USA.

So long, suckas!
