When BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe has held his annual or semi-annual roundtable discussions with reporters in past years, conference realignment and BYU's place in the ever-shifting college sports landscape was a major portion of the Q&A session.
Not so this year.
Only one question regarding conference realignment was asked of Holmoe, as BYU's position as a football independent and a member of the West Coast Conference in most other sports seems quite stable right now, and for the foreseeable future.
However, while acknowledging that conference realignment "has quieted down," Holmoe said he doesn't believe it is over. He believes conferences such as the Big 12 that don't have football championship games because they don't have enough members to stage one will eventually be forced to go that route by other conferences.<
