Report: BYU Joining WCC For BBall

BYU will go independent in football and join the West Coast Conference in other sports in 2011-12,, the Salt Lake Tribune and the San Jose Mercury News reported Tuesday afternoon. BYU will be leaving the Mountain West Conference just as Boise State joins, leaving the league with 10 long-term members. The Mountain West may have to play football with eight teams in 2011 if Nevada and Fresno State can’t get out of the WAC until 2012. and the Mercury News reported that a formal announcement will be made later today. The Mountain West now has lost Utah and BYU since Boise State joined in June/Chadd Cripe, IStatesman. More here.

Question: Can you imagine the basketball games between Gonzaga & Brigham Young beginning in 2011-12 season? Wonder what Boise State, Fresno State, & Nevada are thinking now. Is new Mountain West any better than old WAC?
