It all started Wednesday when reports surfaced that BYU was close to leaving the Mountain West Conference to become independent in football and join the Western Athletic Conference in all others sports.

The Mountain West, in danger of becoming an eight-team conference, moved swiftly to snatch Fresno State and Nevada from from the WAC.

Things should settle down now, right? Maybe not, according to Patterson.
