More on BYU and the WAC

Ferd Lewis writes about BYU's move to independence in football and the WCC in other sports.
The fear for UH and the WAC now is that the MWC might attempt to fill the hole left by BYU's departure with an invitation to Utah State. Indications are the Aggies, who said they turned the MWC down last month, would likely accept a second offer if one comes.

That could leave the WAC with five members -- one below the minimum for automatic-qualifier status for most NCAA championships, UH said.
At least there's some sort of silver lining.
The University of Hawaii and the Western Athletic Conference are expected to announce a scheduling alliance with Brigham Young University in football today.
UH is expected to become an almost annual opponent through 2020 on a home-and-home basis. Before the departure of Fresno State and Nevada to the MWC on Aug. 18, plans were in the works for UH to play BYU in 2011, replacing Boise State, as well as additional games through 2016.
And Dave Reardon wonders if BYU's decision will bring about changes in college football.
