Mountain West Board of Directors Set Agenda for Annual Meeting

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The university presidents of the MWC will be in Colorado Sunday and Monday for their 2013 annual meeting.

For once expansion will not be part of the discussions when the Mountain West directors begin their annual meeting in Colorado Springs. The presidents are content to move forward with the 2013 season with 12 members, 11 all-sports members and Hawaii for football only. Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson told the Idaho Statesman that the focus instead will be directed toward resolving issues with the digital network and the format for the basketball tournaments. That format could be announced at the end of the meeting.

Another important subject for the conference is a discussion of the debate surrounding cost-of-attendance and multi-year scholarships. Some members of the so-called five power conferences are pushing the idea of offering athletes more scholarship money that would include a stipend for players, a concept that could destroy the FBS as we know it.

Also present at the meeting will be NCAA President Mark Emmert. Emmert will be on hand to discuss and answer questions about the NCAA’s handling of infractions and attempts to deregulate recruiting.
