Why yes John David does run this conference doesn’t he @#1Stunner.  I mean he was the guy lobbying for the 20 game basketball season and for the continuation of the Boise special deal correct?

The MWC did SDSU dirty by going to 20 games.  John David was livid!!!

Isn't that what Boise's MWC schedule looks like most years, though?

I mean, Boise has had that tradition going back to the WAC years.

Question for @afafan and @Bob

What is AFA's plans for this season?

Is AFA really only going to play a 2-game schedule (Navy and Army)?   Is AFA going to play any more games than that?

Is it even feasible for AFA to play a season starting in February or March?   What is the graduation schedule / obligation for AFA cadets?

How many games would have qualified as crap on your 2020 schedule just out of curiosity?  This was the G5 plan for Boise - GA Southern, AF, Marshall, SJSU, USU, Hawaii, UNLV, BYU, UNM, Wyoming, CSU.  

What constitutes a crappy game?  If a fan outside of the MWC footprint looked at that schedule, especially a P5 fan, what would they think of those teams?

Back to topic, pretty sure the AAC is going to save BYU’s season, not independence.  Independence nearly killed their season.  

We have 8 games and only 2 AAC teams so far. 
 

sunbelt and cusa saves us. But we got the cream of crop of those. Troy and Western Kentucky plus UTSA and Texas st are good games.

That cream is sour....only WKU in that list is an above .500 team.  2 winning teams out of 8.

Sour?!?!   

Brother, these are trying times...  We are thrilled that BYU is the only team in the Intermountain / Pacific West that is still fielding a football team right now..  BYU is now "The West's Team".  @robe

 

Plus, BYU has the honor of playing against so many Texas Schools:

HOUSTON

TEXAS STATE

TEXAS SAN ANTONIO

 

Hoping that BYU gets a home and home with Texas State and San Antonio (we need to keep the thousands of Texas BYU fans happy).

 

BYU still needs a few more games----hoping that BYU is in talks with the following schools

RICE

NORTH TEXAS

SMU (they'd need to clear a game for BYU)

What I should’ve said is that conferences saved your season, not your independence.  6 games against teams like UTSA and Texas state isn’t a season.  There’ll be at least one more game against aac this season.

Here is what is public:

 

at Army
at Navy
Houston
Troy
North Alabama
Texas State
UTSA.

I saw a schedule with Western Kentucky on it as well.

:bananasex:

If I were a season Tix holder, I would be pissed. This was the year going Indy was going to pay off with big time homies.

Outside of the Coog tilt, that is a meh schedule. If they don't finish 6-2 or better, is Sitaki gone ?

BYU‘S  tv ratings are going to be thru the roof. No competition. 

I would watch the Navy and Houston games. Other than that, I'd rather watch the leaves change color.

Guessing you are a Senior Citizen?

Western Kentucky is ranked higher than 1/2 the MWC.

Sadly, the MWC has rapidly declined recently.  The AAC fans live to point this out.

The concern on scheduling is misplaced.

First, there will not be any football in the spring. Teams won't play in the spring of 2021 and again in the fall of that year.

Teams that don't practice and play this fall will have terrible timing and conditioning in the fall of 2021. Some otherwise good teams may play like Navy did against BYU.

There are real problems for teams that do not play at least 6 games this fall. Money, recruiting, out-transfers, lost coaches. No practice and no real game experience from end of 2019 until September 2021, almost 2 years.

BYU will be ready in 2021. Can't say the same for many others.
