The Mountain West conference -- or, as I like to call it, "the old WAC" -- has always been a high-flying, pass-happy conference with great offensive skill players.

The addition of TCU and the great resurgence of the Utah Utes have provided the conference with the national spotlight recently, and deservedly so.
