BYU down to 6 games

Recommended Posts

@robe

What are you hearing?

Looks like Tom has been working the G5 phone lines.

Still think that Holmoe should have offered to help Boise play this season.   Boise needed financial assistance.

When is BYU announcing the cancellation of their season? I'm not sure what the hold up is at this point. There are no options left....

 

ESPN is playing now, their content is taking some hits and BYU playing is more available games. The AAC won't play nice though, BYU is still free to try and schedule games (Cincy and USF are both rumored with spots to fill) but there will be no "conference life line" unless they make concessions.

Liberty needs games, solid indications there they are working on something. Army is also a possible.

Sunbelt is set pretty well set so I wouldn't expect a lot there. CUSA is open for business, but will BYU pay?

Heard a rumor AFA and Army may get some serious AAC love. Which would make it harder on BYU from a bunch of ways as I would expect AFA is a Holme target right now as the only school west of the Rockies playing, Army is an independent with slots and that's two teams to suck up AAC slots.

The Big South Conference (IAA) voted to push back all their fall sports.

But here's the twist.


The Big South said its football-playing schools voted to play up to four non-conference games this fall at each institution's discretion. Body bag games in the fall, conference games in the spring.  So at this pt BYU gets to keep their game with North Alabama.

Southland is going the same route.

Hoping that BYU makes some scheduling announcement today.
 

And honestly, I'm sort of surprised that BYU hasn't decided to cancel their season already.   Usually BYU is pretty conservative.

My guess is that their admin feels like if Notre Dame and Navy are willing to play, so can they.

BYU lost a few PAC12 basketball games due to the PAC12 shutdown.

Hoping that BYU will schedule the Colorado School of Mines as a replacement.

I feel like the last time BYU lost the Mines Nation, the collective IQ of the Marriott Center rose by 30 points. 

 

@OrediggerPoke, please tell me that Colorado School of Mines is still playing basketball.   Also, it seems unclear if the MWC also canceled all basketball.

Let me say this.  

Troy probably has a 10 times better coaching staff than BYU.

Troy beat Nebraska in 2018 and beat LSU in 2017. They lost to Clemson 30-24 in 2016 (the year Clemson won the national championship).   BYU might lose this game.

No return in the same year? 
well I guess since the SB is playing a full conference slate there may not be room this year.

This could be the start of a partnership between BYU and the Sunbelt.

BYU could soon be synonymous with Sun Belt athletics.

Unlikely.  RMAC has postponed sports until the spring but schools can practice at their discretion.  My understanding is mines is not practicing in the fall for basketball but I could be wrong.  
 

Any chance to schedule Troy as a replacement?

That would be quite the achievement for BYU.  Good luck and perhaps BYU will become a member of the Sun Belt if all goes well.

Unlikely.

I think BYU prefers the WCC over the Sun Belt.

More likely is the WCC expanding.

Past discussions have focused on the University of Denver (who has even tried to pay the WCC a huge buy in fee).   If we could get Denver and School of Mines, it would be a great rivalry, and the WCC could claim a part of the Denver Market (with 2 schools).

If BYU had a western partner, I could see BYU and the Sun Belt doing an annual 2 game deal.

@robe, would you agree with this idea?

BYU really needs to focus on getting games in Texas.

CSU would be ideal, but they have a disaster on their hands right now.

Teams BYU needs to be negotiating with:

 

Texas Christian

Rice

Baylor

North Texas

SMU

@RSF

Would have preferred Texas Christian.

But it looks like BYU is mostly pursuing Texas Schools, which is a good thing.

 

UTSA and Texas State
