Get to know the name of Jon Wilner, who covers college sports for the San Jose Mercury-News -- his beat is Stanford, Cal, and San Jose State, the Pac and the WAC, and he's one of the better reporters going. The money quote:
"I’ve been told that BYU has reached out to the West Coast Conference about the possibility of placing its 18 teams that don’t play football into the WCC.
"In the interest of full disclosure, let’s be clear: I’m not sure whether the Cougars will talk to WCC officials or meet in person with WCC officials. But according to a source, communication in some form will take place this week."
