BYU and Utah Say Goodbye to the MWC!

June 28, 2011 · Posted in Rant & Rants, Sports · Comment 

Dick Harmon of the Deseret News wrote a nice article observing and generously recognizing the success of the Brigham Young University and University of Utah sports programs as they depart the Mountain West Conference (MWC). Harmon points out that BYU and Utah have won 189 of the 305 conference trophies available over the MWC’s 12 year existence (BYU has won 140 and Utah 49). Although these numbers show BYU’s dominance, Harmon explains that both schools made decisions to go elsewhere because college athletics requires competitive exposure.
