Mountain West, Conference USA Union Not Quite Dead Yet

As any current college sports fan knows, there seems to be no end to teams swapping conferences or other news regarding "conference realignment." In recent months, there have been reports that the planned merger between the Mountain West Conference and Conference USA has run into some problems, but representatives from both conferences stress that the plans are still in motion.

Frank Schwab of The Gazette reports that both the MWC and C-USA have stated that the two entities are working on a union of some form, regardless of whether it may result in one consolidated conference.

Both sides stressed all institutions are still on board with the association. Through a conference spokesman, Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson said any suggestions the schools aren't working together are "simply wrong."

Representatives insist that all options are still on the table, including the formation of a new, unified conference.
