How exactly would the MW going to a conference schedule due to the virus be a case of "screwing" Byu..?

 

That would force them to cancel their season with only 4 games to play.

That would be bad for BYU but I don't see how the MW is responsible for BYU in any way.

Oh no. We can't let that happen to poor BYU!

We're not. And the MWC is playing conference only in football so it doesn't matter. BYU is stuck playing Indy teams and local FCS schools.

Has the MWC said what they are doing and not doing?  Or is it along the lines of we are monitoring the situation type updates.

I think it is all still in the wait and see mode.  Personally, I don't think there will be a season.

You could say the MWC has BYU by the balls now.

I don't see it that way at all.  The church has deep pockets.  BYU has shown it can schedule at a high level as an indy.  This is just a crazy sports year.  Based on their ability to draw,  BYU won't have a problem finding games for 2020 if a season happens.  Regardless of how many games are played, 6,8,10,  we are probably going to return to normal in 2021.  

The MWC did have a chance to have BYU by the cajones.  Then Gonzaga decided to stay in WCC.  Let's see where we are all at in a month.  I still think it's way more likely we will not have fall college football with each passing day.  Virus numbers are brutal in the south.

Hey @Warbow. Did you here that it will be a ten game season with three to four bye weeks to make rescheduling more flexible? 

I heard 10 game season with even number of road and home games. He didn’t get into byes if they where going to use them or not or start the season late with only 1 bye.

BYU won’t be left with too many more options in regards to scheduling. Soon the ACC, SEC and Big 12 will announce conference games only. Other G-5 conferences will then follow. Unless Southern Utah and Weber St or Snow fills in, BYU is screwed this yea.

If New Mexico doesn't drop the MANDATORY 2 WEEK QUARANTINE, for anyone coming to the state, there won’t be any football played here.  I---> I'm assuming travel for major sporting events like this will be exempted from the State's q'tine as long as they meet other q'tine like requirements (sequestering in their hotel when not at the stadium, etc...).  The Film/TV Production Industry is exempted from the EU Travel Band.   

With the numbers in covid cases ticking upward again, the Governor is ordering back to phase2 requirements in this state. No eating inside restaurants, gyms and casinos will soon be closing again.


She also cancelled fall school sports (football and soccer). No PeeWee, no YAFL no junior varsity/high schools, allowed to field teams this year.

Also, she  said That even though she doesn’t have a say so for colleges playing (5 schools in NM, 2-D1, 2-D2, 1, NAIA), she would strongly urge colleges to not play as well.

But it’s that 2 week quarantine that she WILL NOT back off of. If so, i don’t see how UNM or lil sis to the south, can play home games... we’d have to play all road games.

I have no contacts and this is pure speculation but I actually do believe the 'MWC' will have football this upcoming fall.  Here is how I see it shaking out and what I think Wyoming's schedule could look like:

New Mexico State ('non-conference' scheduling agreement)
@ Colorado State
New Mexico
@Boise State
@ New Mexico State ('non-conference' scheduling agreement)
Colorado State
Boise State
@ New Mexico
('MWC Championship game')

I see it this way:
'MWC East': CSU/Wyoming/New Mexico/Boise (maybe New Mexico State)
'MWC West': Nevada/UNLV/Utah State (maybe BYU)

The academies won't be playing anyone. The military is going to run a tight ship to control coronavirus in its ranks.  It is pretty clear to me that the Cal State system is going to cancel all fall sports (no SJSU, Fresno or SDSU). My sense is Hawaii will follow suit given their location.

You have to look at this way - teams are going to have tremendous pressure from their states and university administration to completely avoid air travel and possible exposure to the many people at an airport (the stated goal of all these schools with their recent releases is to control coronavirus spread on their campuses).  Therefore, any schedule should be feasible through driving.  The reason I see Utah State sliding over to the 'West' is the BYU attachment and the closer proximity to Reno and Vegas where driving is very feasible but I could see Boise slotting over too.

Note: I am assuming that New Mexico and New Mexico State will receive some sort of state waivers for this type of plan.

Great post, and probably the most realistic.

Also, any neutral championship game would be hosted in Fort Collins, IMO.

 Pls dude. Stop talking bullshit.  I split half my time betwixt Texas and New Mexico.  There is no way New Mexico is any position to build a wall from either of Arizona, Texas, or Colorado. Try me on that one, dude.  Super poor state..rivaling Mississippi in the lowest funded poor state re education..yep, it's New Mexico.  You're freaking lucky to have Texas imports. 

However, NM is full of charm. It really is. If one can turn a blind eye to the rampant meth crises. New Mexico is an anomaly.  The back roads, ranch land is excellent.  The native lands in the NW abutting AZ and Utah..coolo. 

If NM could dislodge Santa Fe politics with its relative Who Gives a Shit...it would be a better place.  Even in Albuquerque. 

The Republic of Texas should never have given up its original territory. 

Republic of Texas 1845 Map – www.TrulyTexas.com

Your grasp of history sucks donkey balls. The Republic of Texas tried to claim everything East of the Rio Grande , but they had no standing to do so. Each and every Texan incursion into New Mexico to claim that land was successfully repulsed. That bullshit map is nothing more than a wet dream.

Just letting you guys know that Hawaii is in favor of just playing out whatever is left of the schedule and was kinda glad the Arizona game was canceled. Looking at other “options” to replace UCLA at home. But losing a big payday with the Oregon cancellation which is going to hurt their bottom line. 

Just like I said

Yep.

Start dates for each phase of a school's offseason program will correspond with the date of its first game. If a team is slated to open its season on Sept. 5, players could participate in "up to eight hours of weight training, conditioning and film review per week," beginning on July 13, per the NCAA. From July 24 to Aug. 6, that would increase to 20 hours per week.
