So, now that the Cougars' inaugural year of competition has drawn to a close, WCC commissioner Jamie Zaninovich said it all went according to plan.
"The first year's been fantastic. There have been no surprises," Zaninovich said. "BYU is what we thought they would be. They are great partners for our other schools. They've been great competitors across the board, and I think they've found great competitors across the board. That's what we anticipated. It's all been very positive."
