BYU Joins The WCC, How ‘Bout Seattle U?
With all the talk of the approaching football season and a summer filled with conference realignments, it was easy to overlook one of the most interesting sidebars of recent weeks.
WCC officials say they don’t have any plans to add a 10th team — they have three in Southern California, three in the Bay Area, Portland, Gonzaga, and BYU — but I don’t see any reason why they won’t add Seattle University. It’s a private school, like every conference member; it’s a Catholic school, like seven of the members; and it’s in Seattle, like none of the other members.
Seattle U. will be fully returned to Division I in 2012-13, and it would appear to be a perfect fit for the WCC.
