Interesting and very lawyer like twist to the interpretation - if the 4 (or 5 with Mizzou) Big XII schools take in 6 MWC schools, you could technically meet the requirement that 6 of the schools have played together for the last 5 years and the TV contracts and BCS standing could still be in place - awfully tempting if that would play out and you're an MWC member.
I think the peril to ISU has been greatly overstated. Even with 5 teams staying, say ISU, KU,KSU, Baylor and Missou, you can cherry pick 6 teams from the MWC, add in Boise State, you have a pretty decent conference. You will have all the money from the departing teams, a BCS slot. You would have to play on that ugly blue field every few years but there are worse things.

Wyoming and Air Force have teams as far as I know. I think if schools are in coferences that have few wrestling teams, aren't there a few at-large "super-regionals" or something like that?
As someone else previously mentioned, shouldn't make a huge difference, as geographically we would still compete against IA, MN, NE, Penn St, MO, etc. Conference would just serve as a national qualifier.
