For what may turn out to be only a very brief moment in history, the Mountain West conference now has ten members. Boise State will leave the WAC to join TCU, Utah, BYU, and others in a conference that now boasts four BCS bowl victories in the last six years -- as many as the ACC (one) and Big East (three) combined over the same span. The Broncos ranked first in the nation over the last ten years in winning percentage, home winning percentage, and scoring, and will help boost the profile of the league in its pursuit of BCS automatic qualifying status. Without Boise, the WAC leftovers make a very strong argument for the worst conference in college football.

Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
