President Dubois Lukewarm to Conference Expansion
Laramie, Wy – University of Wyoming President Phil Dubois says he's open to the idea of expanding the Mountain West Conference. The conference's commissioner says there's a strong possibility that an additional team will be added by the end of the year. Dubois says he's rather conservative when it comes to expansion so he has no problems with adding one team, but a suggestion last week that up to four new teams could be added concerns him. Dubois says the biggest reason for leaving the Western Athletic Conference was the 16-team league was unmanageable, didn't provide the financial revenues for member schools and took away traditional rivalries. Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson says no institution has been offered an invitation to join the conference yet.
