The Five Million Dollar WAC Exit Penalty Is No Longer In Place

The WAC is really in trouble now because once Fesno State and Nevada left to join the Mountain West that five million dollar exit fee the league agreed upon last week is no longer in place:

When Fresno State and Nevada jumped to the Mountain West Conference, the 5 million dollar agreement between the WAC schools all went null and void.

Knowing that, Benson was asked what's stopping his other schools from leaving in the very near future.

"Nothing", was the response. And how right he's turning out to be.

The WAC maybe over as we know it since Hawai'i is considering independence, Utah State is trying to get into the Mountain West, and Louisiana Tech has always wanted a better travel schedule.  Unless something major is done the WAC may not be around come the fall of 2012.
