    I know this is a long shot but maybe the NM Bowl can try to fill part of that void - feature a MWC champ vs. a P5 invitee. No need to worry about WAC anymore from our legislature as NMSU no longer a member. Maybe the city &/or UNM needs to surround it with other events like another balloon fiesta of sorts, an "old town" event like a green chile "cook off" &/or a live big name music jamboree, (I don't know their season so maybe this is a bad idea) USL soccer tourney, a new "Lobo Invitational" or whatever the many others smarter than me can think of. Lets really sell ourselves and what we can offer and really, really make this "big time." Lets turn this disappointment into an opportunity.

    The MWC has a year to find a tie-in replacement for the Las Vegas Bowl. It doesn't matter which bowl tie ins the MWC champion. What is more important is the number of bowls the MWC has tie-ins with.

    NM Bowl could move up the pecking order for the MW.

    For an additional bowl, revive the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego or start a new bowl somewhere like Denver. A Pac 12 or SEC spot could open up in another bowl somewhere also.

    Is MWC really to the point their champ gets to play the 10th place team from the power conference? I don't think the NM Bowl is going to get any higher than that. And then you are left holding the bag at the last minute trying to find a Temple because the P5 doesn't have enough clubs to fill.

    If its moving to the new stadium, why not start another one that UNLV can hold? Vegas still a great destination.

    So is San Diego and they gave up because it was very difficult to host two bowls in a week at the same venue. You almost need multiple places like Phoenix.

    maybe you are correct but without trying we will never know. make it a big enough event surrounding the bowl and who knows. i'm tired of we are New Mexico meaning the only thing we can aspire to is a bunt single and not a home run. Why not try to get the key players (NM Bowl, new USL owners, UNM, City, key legislators) together to see if its feasible before we give up and not even take a swing.

    Not really. The Fiesta Bowl dropped the old WAC when ASU was in the conference. The Holiday Bowl in San Diego dumped the old WAC when SDS was in conference. The Sun Bowl never gave the old WAC a spot when UTEP was in our conference. That is why we should be very happy we have the New Mexico Bowl and Jeff S. at the helm.

    Guarantee this is to get ready for the new stadium. They want the big conferences.

    But they'll take our money for the next two years. Mwc fans need to boycott.

    Bottom line is the P5 schools travel much better. A full stadium looks much better than a half empty stadium.

    No way to sugarcoat this. It's a huge blow to the MWC.

    Absolutely the right thing for Vegas to do. Remember: Vegas: taking tourists money since the 1950's. No one travels like the SEC and now Vegas has a venue that can support it.

    Hopefully, all MWC fans boycott that bowl after it moves to P5 conferences only. No point in supporting that bowl after the transition.
