They are in the SEC and Bug 12 footprint in addition to being in the same state.  
They’ll play.

They still have payday games. Hopefully BYU plays on with AAC.

Actually, none of the SB teams have payday games left, yet they are still moving forward.

I thought they had ACC games. Well good for them. Kansas right now is moving forward with fall high school sports. NAIA KCAC conference is moving forward. They play only Kansas schools. A huge portion of the athletes are from Texas, Utah and California. I rent to some football players. They all got Covid a month ago. They seem like decent kids hopefully they don’t destroy my home. 
 

Play on.

Some internet talk about BYU, Army, and AFA finding a trial home in 2020 with the AAC. Makes sense, no idea if there is anything real to it.

Memphis people say AAC apparently is looking at higher media pay out from ESPN if their games are moved into more prominent spots may be incentive in their contract or ESPN enticement.

Anything to back your assertion up?

Common sense.  Sun belt and CUSA don’t have as much to gain as P5 schools by playing football but they have the same amount to lose from a liability standpoint.

Ok, so you just don’t think it’ll happen, despite the reports previously mentioned in this thread. Thank you for clarifying.

Reports last week - MWC to play 10 game season starting September 26.

They do have a lot to gain. A lot more exposure on TV now that the MW and MAC have dropped sports

Good news. I hope BYU Stays the course. I think they fold soon unfortunately. Nebraska wants to play on without the B10. Small market team that relies on football money for the community. I think season hinges on what SEC does now.

Makes sense for ESPN

Last week all P5 programs were playing this fall plus the MWC and MAC.  Now it looks like 4 conferences aren’t playing.  Things can happen fast.

Although I admit that the SEC will likely be the last ones standing.

I’m surprised BSU isn’t going to attempt to play on.

I would be surprised if we could elegantly put together a balanced schedule and get any tv money. I assume the Conference owns the tv rights, and although I guess we could somehow get some money, there would be legal troubles with the Conference, and we already have those simmering on the horizon. Plus the downside is REALLY big if schools do end up competing and there are directly related Covid deaths, particularly of players.

Yeah, I was mostly being snarky at his tone. :cheers:
