Mountain West and Conference USA merger?

Bleacher report just published a story about a possible merger between the MWC and Conference USA.  If the MWC can pick off a few quality teams from Conference USA, then it becomes a mid-major superpower, and can really challenge the BCS conferences for sooner addmission into AQ status, and BYU really would have to rethink leaving a conference poised to be able to renegociate their agreement with college football as well as a new, more profitable TV deal.

This would solve all of BYU’s reasons for leaving, and make it really kind of stupid to do so. ¬†Updates will follow on any more breaking news.
