Mountain West's Thompson Wants To Establish A Digital Presence For The Conference
Published July 26, 2012
BIGGER IDEA: Thompson in May said that the MWC's decision to expand and C-USA's addition of five schools was "Phase One of a larger plan." He said yesterday that, more importantly, it was "a decision by both conferences to take care of their own before moving forward with any type of merger." Thompson said the league’s presidents have also "started to shy away from the idea of moving themselves from a western-based league to a national one." He added that he "hoped to have the league’s remaining TV schedule for this season done by Wednesday, but it’s not quite ready." Thompson said that the league "would put at least 30 additional games on either regional or local stations" (LAS VEGAS SUN, 7/26).
