Independence...The New Super Conference?

New, 1 comment

I don't think so, but it would appear BYU got some other schools thinking it may be the way to go.  ESPN reported this morning that Hawaii is looking at leaving the WAC and going Indepenant in football while placing its other sports in the WCC. 

Why this doesn't make sense for Hawaii - What will Hawaii do for TV Coverage?  They don't have the money to front a new network, they don't have an existing network and being so far west they lack  a great TV deal unless they want to start playing all their games at 10 or 11am.

Why it does make sense for Hawaii - Scheduling should not be too tough for the Warriors.  Who wouldn't want a midseason trip to the Islands?  The National Title contenders may not want the distraction, but there are plenty of big conference schools who wouldn't mind taking the trip, to be sure.
