BYU

Rumours have it that BYU will be leaving the MWC. Reports, or internet buzz, at least, indicate that BYU will be independent in football, and will play in the WAC in all other sports. Despite the fact that BSU will be joining the MWC in 2011, this most recent defection, coming right after Utah's departure for the Pac-10, will most likely kill any chances the MWC had of becoming a BCS conference, and may very well sound the death knell for the conference, generally.

 

Most interesting about this story is the fact that BYU has its own, high definition TV network. The connection to the network apparently figured prominently into BYU's decision. Reading message boards and local news reports, it would appear BYU fans are confident that BYU has enough of a national fanbase to capitalize on being independent and having their own network.
