BYU bolts Mountain West

BYU is bolting the Mountain West Conference to for independence in football in 2011. For basketball and other sports, the Cougars will be joining the West Coast Conference, home of Gonzaga, St. Mary's, and Pepperdine. It leaves the MWC with seven current members sticking with the conference, Utah, who will be leaving in 2011 for the Pac-10, and  three future members Boise St., Nevada, and Fresno St.
Expect the MWC to scout out schools like Houston and UTEP for the elusive twelth members in its ongoing quest to win a permanent spot in the BCS. As for BYU, expect the Cougars to learn that independence won't get them any closer to a crystal football.
