Why I love the Mountain West

The following is a thing I wrote about 2 years ago while watching Thursday Night College Football on ESPN, and was inspired by a fraternity brother who originally gave me the idea. It is meant entirely as a joke, and I think it's good for a chuckle every once and a while.

Mountain West for BCS Champions
1st Draft- September 22, 2005
By Robbie Mays

The Mountain West is the best football conference in Division 1 Collegiate football. There are many reasons as to why this is, and many more reasons why I think the BCS champions should come from this division every year.

First of all, let me say I love how the Mountain West will play whenever ESPN will offer to put them on television. I believe the MW would play a game at 7:45 a.m. EST on Sunday mornings. Not only is the Mountain West so starved for attention, they want everyone in the country to know they are the best conference out there.

Next, most importantly, they never fail to not sell out the entire stadium. If you catch any MW game on a Thursday night, you will notice that there is plenty of room in the stadium for the crowd to spread out, and be able to sleep off that hangover they got from starting to drink at noon. I think all schools should stop selling tickets when they reach about 10,000 less than capacity.

Have you ever noticed how lopsided a Mountain West game can be? I just love watching one team run up 47 points in the first half. I think they should show every moment of the game because of this, and should never under any circumstances switch to Sportscenter to show clips of New Orleans Saints’ coaches complain about having to play a ‘home’ game at Giant Stadium in New York.

Finally, the Mountain West has superior athletes compared to the rest of the country. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play in a makeshift football stadium that doubles for a soccer stadium during the week. The painted over soccer lines are great on television, as it adds to d├ęcor of the half-empty stadium.

Oh yes, the Mountain West is the best conference in the land. From the great players and exciting last minute touchdown drives that allows the team to beat the 49 point spread, it’s an excellent division to show every week on Thursday night football.
Isn’t there a Seinfeld re-run on somewhere?
