For the sake of Boise State basketball and other sports I hope that the WAC survives. We already know that WAC commish Carl Benson has already re-invited Hawaii, Nevada, and Fresno State. What if they decide to stay? Why would they you ask? Well, they've seen Boise State leave after a year along with San Diego State. MWC has no ESPN. LaTech might to CUSA, and if it looks like The MW and CUSA pull an actual merger, instead of just a football “federation” then any or all of those three schools (especially Hawaii) might balk at the idea of having to travel to North Carolina (ECU), West Virginia (Marshall), or Mississippi (S.Miss) to play in-conference games. Hawaii left the WAC because they didn’t want to travel to to Texas (UTSA and Texas State). But if the MW and CUSA merge then a game or two each season to Texas my look more attractive than travelling all the way to the eastern seaboard.
