I don't know that MWC with BYU is enough to make national perception of the
gap between AAC and MWC disappear. MWC plays late at night, AAC gets more views from the people who make decisions. I would love it if AAC and MWC combine conferences and shed the worst/least popular (here's looking at you Wyoming) teams from their ranks. It would get them much closer to "P6" status in the minds of the media.
