MWC is hosed. They'd be in great shape if everyone had stayed, and they added BSU.

The MWC is transforming into the WAC. It's losing BYU, Utah and TCU. It is gaining Boise St, Nevada, and Fresno St. The WAC is turning into . . . ???

For football, Big West for all other sports. The rest of the conference is UC/Cal St schools with tight budgets so the travel will not be easy on them.

Don't look now, but, as of today BYU is currently #1 in RPI in men's basketball:

I don't expect it to continue as the Big East schedule plays out...and the big boys of Louisville, UConn, Syracuse, Notre Dame, and Georgetown battle it out. But, still...

Subtract about 30 points/game and that's the answer?

I like your idea, Purplegeezer. The last flashmob I saw was this:

The WCC website is hinting at the new logo, with a short video regarding the new era of the WCC... check it out.

Huh. Does that really hint at a new logo or just a new motto or catch phrase for the coming year?

The stars at the beginning... and the brief flash at the 0:33 second mark... it seems to indicate a theme / logo motif...

I am not sure I would have noticed other than I had a bad connection the first time I watched it and the video froze a couple times at those spots. Wink

Nah, I caught on the same visual clues. They wouldn't make all this hooplah over an addition we already know if they didn't have something to go with it. And besides, the nature of the previous logo having a star for every school pretty much requires an alteration of the current one. (Which is fine by me, the old one was getting a little on the tired side...)

They should reveal it in public on a giant screen in front of people who've been drinking. Kind of like the Timbers did during the World Cup. What could go wrong?

The only thing worse would be to do the unveiling in front of a drunk Philly crowd.

They boo Santa Clause.

So, BYU-> Big12 is now off? If it ever was on?

Big East is getting desperate....I could see BYU getting a look there.

And now they apparently are: BYU, Big East are Talking. However,
Most of BYU’s non-football sports are in the WCC and would presumably remain there if the football program joined the Big East.

Big East of what??? The Pacific Ocean?

Just checked in with my WCC contact. BYU bought more high priced tickets to Las Vegas than any other school. Actually, too many of the lower level seats were purchased. There are going to be about 125 growling Cougars who will have to be moved up toward the top and the "cheap seats" -- except on Sunday.

They raised the cost of the "cheap seats" to $175 from $135, but kept the high priced seats the same at $225. I'm not surprised they oversold the lower level. There aren't that many seats available in those sections.

As you can probably guess, I bought my tickets in the cheap seats.

Any idea on the overall breakdown of how many tickets each school ordered?

Nope, sorry, but apparently each school has been limited to only 75 of the lower ($225) seats. As the only course I took at UP that had me use numbers was Business Statistics, I'm not sure my math is correct, but I believe that is a total of only 675 seats!? confused

I too will be in the cheap seats, but with "roving" privileges!
