The proposal to dissolve both Conference USA and the Mountain West and form a new league appears to have lasted about as long as a Kardashian marriage.
CBSSports.com is now reporting the two leagues have decided to not dissolve and start from scratch but are now back to the original idea of merging and sharing resources. Last fall, the two leagues announced they would merge in football only in an effort of self preservation as both conferences were picked apart by bigger leagues such as the Big XII and Big East.
In February it was announced C-USA and the MWC would dissolve and come together and brand new conference.
Simply because doing so would void current television contracts allowing a new deal to be negotiated and ultimately generate more revenue for the league’s members. However, the plan hit a snag when officials realized the conferences would lose their NCAA tournament units, costing each conference millions of dollars.
As of right now the only thing that is certain is the future for Conference USA, the Mountain West and its members is very uncertain.
