Get the Mountain West to agree to forego six games to mostly fill out Oregon State and Wazzu's schedule and give all 14 universities in the Mountain West and Pac-12 eight games against one another. Every team is available for a combined Championship Game and each team is available for each other's bowls. (I am curious as to what bowls keep Oregon State and Wazzu and which are out.)
Boise, which already plays Oregon State, plays Wazzu in a second game. Oregon State, which hosted San Diego State this year, goes to San Diego State next year.
Oregon State and Wazzu each add one team from California, Colorado, and Nevada and one of the two Northern and Southern teams that are left. Oregon State then schedules home-and-homes with Cal and Oregon.

We think about flipping the Cal, Oregon, or Wazzu games, because it will be tough to continue a rivalry against all three, if 2024 is in Corvallis.
Or, with the @ Hawai'i game, you could also schedule Utah to a home-and-home, as well. Something like:

I don't know why something like that wouldn't work.
Because the MWC is saying no and has strings attached.
Who do you know at the MWC that is providing that information to you?
Judge disappointed that there was no mediated resolution before today and now asking if they need more time.
Why would you mediate if you're sure your position is correct?
The past actions spell it out pretty clearly. Again, the traitorous ten could just say yeah, take it all, just don't penalize us more than $X (or say it has to be run through a judge) for this year's revenue and it's all over.
Keep playing with fire and suddenly legal fees might be withheld. Why is it the lawyers are always the ones to win?
