CHAOS: "Mega Conference" Merger? Houston Cougars to the Mountain West?


Miner Rush is doing its best to keep you caught up with the latest chatter relating to a potential Conference USA and MWC merger. The latest? The Houston Cougars may be off to the MWC.

Conference USA: We are "Exploring Creative Ways to Work Together" With the Mountain West Conference


Both the C-USA and the MWC just released statements confirming that the league's Commissioners met Thursday night in Colorado Spring, Co. Here is the full text of the official statement just released by Conference USA: "The conferences have much in common and have worked cooperatively for many years and we are exploring creative ways to work together going forward. The discussion included scheduling, television, and post-season football. It is premature for anyone to suggest anything else at this point. We have the strong support of our members as we work on a variety of strategic initiatives. We had a good discussion yesterday and likely will have more in the future." UPDATE: The Mountain West also just released a statement via their official blog. Here is is: "Followed up on various media reports regarding a potential Mountain West Conference-Conference USA merger, and confirmed that representatives of both leagues did indeed meet yesterday in Colorado Springs. Included were Commissioner Craig Thompson, Commissioner Britton Banowsky (who have a long-standing personal and professional relationship), and a couple MWC Athletics Directors. The informal gathering, which was previously scheduled, covered a wide range of topics, including concepts regarding television, scheduling and the BCS. Yet another example of the Mountain West's ongoing strategic thinking on a number of fronts, as the league continues to position itself in the national landscape."
