Thompson's bluff was called and he wisely backed down.

SDSU, BOISE, and USU all breath sighs of relief.  The BYU games will be maintained.

I now expect CSU and BYU to work out a deal.  It makes too much sense.

 

@robe.  Any possible games in Kansas?

That will help save BYU's season, assuming we have one.

That's called a "BYU Bounce".  It was inevitable.

Just sit back.  Enjoy the show.

 

@hickaggie You attending the BYU vs USU game this year?

KU and KSU both have their OOC game currently on the schedule.  In the B12 only Tech doesnt have something at least unofficially lined up.  Enjoy Lubbock...

What bluff? Nothing changed. And Thompson was a mouthpiece in all of this. Actually no one has spoken from the MWC yet. We knew the three options. Sure, they went from conference only to two non-con games but they are still sticking with ten games. So, as Brett says, they had to consider Air Force. ( Amazingly I never thought of this and has not been brought up on conversation. This was a no-brainer.) And if they are only going with two OOC games, they are obviously still concerned about other conferences protocol methods.

And the teams that still have two non-con games scheduled will keep those agreements.

Instead of thinking everything this conference does is about BYU maybe you should give them respect for not jumping the gun to early and taking the time to explore every option.

Dream scenario:

BYU playing Texas Christian, SMU, and North Texas...in the same season.  We'd get the tour of Dallas / Fort Worth.

One of the games could be played at Honda Stadium.

You want to play football in the Anaheim Ducks arena?

OK, the Air Force accommodation makes sense. 

But I think there was an equal accommodation for Boise and USU keeping BYU.  Aren't both games on the road for BYU?  No way Boise turns that down.  Not with the pending lawsuit against the MWC.  And...donations to Bronco Athletics from Meridian would evaporate overnight.... @BroncoOrange

I also have to wonder if Boise secretly had BYU listening in on the Zoom meeting and if the two strategized together.

They play about 2 or 3 games each weekend there already.  Plus the soccer team.

It looks like a beautiful venue.

I can't tell if you're being serious. I'm done. You're giving me a headache.

But remember, every teams has a full schedule they can still play in the MWC except two or three teams. They aren't gonna cancel games when the opponents are available. How many of those teams will choose BYU over an AAC team, Army, or another team from another conference? Yeah, I'm sure you might get an extra game or two in the MWC but I'm also sure you will be last up by one or two as well. Or maybe, all of them will tell you to piss off. We don't know. The meeting is in progress and it's probably gonna take a few days before those schedules are filled.

Thanks for sharing and I don't disagree.

I think CSU, UNLV, Hawaii, and New Mexico are the most likely to schedule BYU.  We'll see!

What's your take on Fort Worth?

@RSF and the other Texas Christian fans claim it's a lot nicer than Dallas.  They said the SMU campus is in a crappy area.

I'd also be curious to hear your take on North Texas State University.
