Report: Boise State still hasn't officially withdrawn from Mountain West

Industry sources told Brett McMurphy of CBSSports.com that Boise State still has not officially withdrawn from the Mountain West Conference in order to join the Big East for football in 2013, and that on July 1 the price to do so increases dramatically.

Moreover, sources say that the Broncos remain in discussions with the MWC about remaining in that league long-term. The complicating factor is that if the football team moves to the Big East, the school may have no home for its remaining teams. There is an agreement in place with the Western Athletic Conference, but that league would have only four other members after the next school year, so Boise State is keeping its options open.

If the Broncos withdraw by June 30, their exit fee would be only about $2.5 million. On July 1, that number would jump to potentially as much as $24 million.
