It is a matter of administration from the UTEP side. They would like totol controls and tried to use these controls in the past with the old WAC. That is a main reason why they (UTEP) were not invited to the MWC and with actions (history) seen with UTEP and their behaviors with other schools, UTEP is seen more of a liability than an asset. Coaches and Fans are the loosers in this control matter. Conflect between coaches and fans with this policy has created a problem within themselves. Several coaches have resigned because of the administrations stands. I agree that they should be in the same conf. It would make that area stronger.
So now I know why UTEP was left out of the MWC. Thanks SARGE
