Commenting on BYU moving to the Pacific-10 Conference: It's something we would have to look at, no question, but there has been no indication that any of them in the Pac-10 are interested in BYU. The question we would have to ask ourselves is, where we've had nice success, would it be worth giving that up to, maybe, go into a league that we might struggle for awhile before getting the program where we could compete with them. It took Arizona State and Arizona a long time. Myself, I don't have any problems staying in the WAC. I like it; we've had success. Winning 14 games last year, I don't think that happens if we were in a bigger league. Fortunately or unfortunately, there's going to be someone other than me who's going to make that decision down the line.
