Utah State And The Mountain West Are In Round Two
Of Negotiations For The Aggies To Join The League
The Aggies are now in a second round of negotiations in an attempt to join the Mountain West and leave the sinking ship known as the WAC. With the buyout clause now not in effect every school should be or is on the look out for a new home. So far only Utah State only Hawaii is actively looking at new options:
Given reports that Hawaii is also considering going independent in football and entered into at least preliminary discussions with the Big West about its non-football sports, Benson acknowledged Tuesday that everybody in the league is now back in play - including the Aggies.
"It wouldn't surprise me to know that Utah State is having conversations with the Mountain West Conference," Benson told The Tribune. "That's probably a phase that applies to all of us now. It's the operative phase."
All of this depends on if the Mountain West is going to be an eleven or twelve team league and that also depends on what BYU does.http://www.mwcconnection.com/2010/8/24/1648734/utah-state-and-the-mountain-west
