What’s the price of BYU’s fatter bottom line?

So BYU's TV deal grew (some are reporting it grew a lot) and to make room for it, the Mountain West loses what was practically assured BCS autobid. And the WAC suddenly looks like it will not have enough teams even to continue to be a 1A conference.

That BYU can make more money (for itself only) in this new setup is not a bad thing. But the price that two other conferences have to pay for all of that money is steep indeed. The Cougars ought to be roundly condemned for this kind of move; ESPN too, for midwiving the deal that basically kills the MWC and WAC.

I guess there's no B, Y, or U in the word team.

Memo to Gary Patterson: hang a hundred on these creeps when they roll into town on October 16.
