Report: BYU Leaving Mountain West

Item: Reports: BYU leaving Mountain West/Brian Murphy, Idaho Statesman

More Info: Boise State's new conference is about to get rocked by a second defection this summer, according to the Colorado State athletic department. Colorado State posted on Twitter late Tuesday that fellow Mountain West Conference member BYU will go independent in football and join the Western Athletic Conference in all other sports. A press conference is scheduled for Thursday, according to the post by @CSUFootball - the official Colorado State football Twitter account. The Mountain West, which added Boise State for 2011 in June, already has lost Utah to the Pac-10.

Question: What should Boise State do, if BYU indeed leaves the Mountain West to go independent and to join the WAC in all other sports?
