08:18 AM ET 10.21 | The Big East is raising its exit fees, but they're especially steep in one case out West. Boise State could owe as much as $21 million if it decides to change conferences for next season, the Mountain West confirmed Thursday. The Albuquerque Journal first reported the exit fees. Here's how it works (and all numbers are approximate): If Boise State reaches a BCS game this season, its year-end revenue distribution from the Mountain West would be roughly $7 million. According to the Mountain West's exit fee clause, the Broncos would forfeit that amount AND the greater of $5 million OR double the year-end distribution ($14 million). That's how you get to $21 million.

They are really trying to put the hurt on teams jumping about.Will BSU pony up to move???Should they??

Better question is should the Big East and the ACC be allowed to keep the AQ status? I can't see how the ACC improved their overall strength with Syracuse and Pitt nor how the Big East would be that strong if those two stayed...or they add the ones being considered.

Anyone care to explain why those two should keep the AQ status?

? Who the hell cares about the Boyzee wannabes and who really believes that they would actually accept a bid to a conference that has some real football programs????? They are much better off staying where they are so that they can continue to perpetrate the scam that they should be national champions because they beat up on lower tier teams.
