The MWCUSA? Mountain West/Conference USA talk merger, The Mtn. expands coverage - Cowboy Altitude


The Road over at Cowboy Altitude (SBNation's Wyoming Cowboys site) has a nice recap of the latest developments in the MWC/CUSA Merger talks. Among the ideas being discussed: 1. Championship game between top team in MWC and CUSA. Winner goes to a BCS Bowl. 2. Moving members to balance the leagues. UTEP could join the Mountain West and be close to New Mexico. Conference USA could focus on the Eastern half of Texas and the Southeast. Not sure this has a big chance of occurring since the Miners seem pretty happy playing so many other Texas schools. 3. Media Partnerships. Both leagues play some of their games on CBS College Sports. The MWC teams also appear on Versus and it's own network The Mtn. A few CUSA games get picked up by ESPN. 4. Scheduling partnerships for out of conference games. Basketball scheduling could be easier with road trips that hit two or three schools at once.
