    As if the 2023 date wasn't bandied about on this very board by a couple dozen of us idiots back in 2017.

    Unlike us who have no influence on anything, ESPN has a bit more money and influence than we do. Us saying it is just speculation, ESPN saying it is planning in action.

    I don’t think the Pac-12 will like SDSU, Boise, and UNLV being “elevated” and having their Western supremacy “challenged” in So Cal and Utah. If I were the Pac-12 I’d be pretty nervous about letting a new Western Big 12 form with the recruiting advantages they would have with their strong presence in Texas. With TCU, Baylor, Ok State, SDSU, BYU, Houston, and Boise they would start as not being that far off from the Pac-12, and that’s before the recruiting bump the MWC schools and Houston would get. Hell, the Big 12 schools could get a recruiting bump as well with the conference’s new presence in CA. 

    I’d be pretty bullish on the prospects of a Western Big 12, It’d be a really entertaining and balanced league with a lot of potential. They could also easily lure Gonzaga and Wichita State also if they wanted to beef up their basketball. Hawaii and AFA (or any service academy) could be football only members. They’d have to hope WVU goes to the ACC to solve that geographic problem, but other then that there’d be a lot to like.

    If you have the Big12 reduced to 6 or 7 teams, then I could see them, perhaps, inviting any number of the pool of MWC +BYU, as the final couple after they first poach the AAC. I have a hard time seeing the Big 12 looking west for expansion. I think the PAC12 is pretty confident in its position out west. Frankly, most eyes are east of the I-35 corridor and it'll be a hard sell for late-night kick offs which are used as late night inventory fodder. If, and only if machinations and rumors indicated a western expansion then I could see the PAC12 perhaps make a move, but I doubt it.


    I think half the AAC should be sweating right now. I'd venture the MWC and PAC 12 are darn near irrelevant in this whole thing.

  3. I really don't get why OU and UT would do this. They will make plenty of money in the Big XII and joining the SEC will increase their losses and potentially reduce their seeding they'd get in the expanded CFP. I think it's an unwise move if it happens.

    Two 4-loss teams ranked ahead of us, one of them got shut out in the last game.  The CFP committee members have a huge hard on for themselves.


    Until there is a 12 or 16-team CFP, there will always be a concerted effort by the P5 and its agent, the CFP Committee, to subjugate non-power schools & conferences.

  5. G5 playoff is a concession that there are, in fact, two levels in FBS. This idea should be avoided like the plague. 

    Since there are 10 FBS conferences, and P5/G5 pairings that is geographically similar PAC12/MWC; Big 10/MAC, etc., there should be a promotion/relegation system.

    Boise State was missing seven starters on defense on that last drive by BYU and they still couldn’t score. BYU is snake bit on the blue turf. 

    We have a lot of raw players that are talented. Our depth is showing, but the inexperience is what will expose us.  We need some help on the defensive line.  We get gashed too often, and I fear Tedford & McMaryion is going to pick us apart. Also I've notice that our LBs go through really bad phases where they make the wrong read and/or get caught up in the wash of the DL/OL when trying to plug gaps.  

  7. The way Fresno St & USU are playing combined with how many injuries BSU has on defense so far...I am not hopeful for the games vs FSU and USU.

    I am developing a dreadful sense that Harsin and company are doing less with more.
