Now can we return to the business of adding peer institutions to the conference?

"If the B12-2 comes calling, BYU is gone."
Is there an echo in here? WCC office should spend more time on PN.

If BYU accepts: so much for religious, peer institutions with the same mission (Hint: not football). But, I think the argument could be made that Texas is a religion.

WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich, "If the Cougars did want to leave, they wouldn’t get held up by the WCC. The league fully understands that BYU may want to join a major football conference..."
Are these the words of a man faced with the inevitable, or is there a hint of 'good riddance' in there? Maybe there were just too many special accomodations being made.

Maybe there is a fat exit fee.

Well on a positive note, the risk of someone dying over the course of the WCC tourney in Vegas is about to get significantly lower....

I liked the WCC the way it was personally. Before all this conference re-alignment and logo changing. We should have never let BYU in in the first place. But, the money will be great. Especially if there is a nice exit fee (I say nice because I am a Pilot fan).
