BYU doesn't deal with the MWC, BYU deals with each school individually.

I'm told that UNLV has already made contact with BYU.

No.  I like Boise's relationship with BYU but if they want to have a football season, they should swallow their pride and join the MWC for all sports with something like a $20 million exit fee.

I say we make it work this year with them. Who knows what all of our schedules are going to look like anyway, so why close the door before we need to?

How is Boise's lawsuit against the MWC progressing?  Did Boise swallow their pride yet, or are they still demanding most of the TV money?

We should get half the T.V. revenue.  We will settle for a proportional raise, though.

Right now, I doubt the season is even played this fall.   We'll see.

 

If the season goes forward, and BYU needs to find games, I won't be surprised if a few MWC schools decide to play BYU.  The Conference Schedule thing isn't as big of a push in the G5 ranks, as it is the P5, because the TV money doesn't matter in G5.  Also, who knows what ESPN will do to line up bigger games.

Otherwise, don't forget, BYU football has sucked the past few years under Sitake.   A garbage schedule would feel like the old WAC days, and might actually boost BYU's confidence some.

 

Schedule would be filled out with:

UConn

Liberty

NM State

Army

UMass

Notre Dame (probably not)

BYU would need the MWC schools more than the other way around.  If all the P5 conferences follow the B10 lead, suddenly BYU is down to 6 games.  And if the MWC or AAC decide its also not such a bad idea , then the Cougars are looking at a really short season.

All of the conferences moving to a 10-game, "Conference Only" schedule.

Is the Big12 going to play some schools twice?   Look for a "filler" school for 1 season? (UConn, BYU, or Army?).  Maybe utilize all 3 for the 10th games?

 

Otherwise, to respond, not sure what ESPN will do, since they own BYU's TV rights.   Maybe they will pair BYU up with another ESPN Conference for 1 year?  (AAC???)

Lots of games are going to get dropped, imo. This will further marginalize the G5.

We may need each other. I don't see the MWC being like "conference only" but I've been wrong before.

We already have BYU this year.  Playing there Friday night ESPN on 10/16.  If Washington State holds up on 9/12 Coogs play the other two cougars this year.

Could play 9.  Or have 10.  If AAC goes conference only, I'm sure North Texas wouldnt mind making the 40 minute drive to play TCU to replace SMU, especially since they have 2 AAC schools on their schedule.  Lots of options around here.

Add Utah, ASU and Stanford to MSU and UMinn on that list in a day or 2.

 

 

And the NIU game is no longer in Chicago.  Moved to Dekalb.
