Dick Harmon: Before massive changes, the MWC is making noise
Time is ticking away on the MWC as we know it. Pretty soon, it will change forever — for better or for worse.
The league created its own groundbreaking TV deal, albeit an enterprise that coughs up nickels instead of gold, but it tried.
It's a league that's been made fun of, poked fun at and both praised and teased. But in a sense, it has done about all it was able to do with what was given when CSU President Albert Yates assembled the first roll call on May 26, 1998.
As an unwashed league outside the six automatic qualifying BCS conferences designed specifically to financially hold the MWC and others down and out, the MWC really has excelled.
And this season — as many things MWC fade to another shade — is no exception.
