So I spent the weekend watching games on ESPNU that apparently no longer exist. It was way existential.

Good News:
The skill position players are looking good
The secondary looks good

Bad News:
No depth at O-Line which doesn't bode well for late in the season
ucla looks horrible and has worse depth. (Why yes I'm petty)

Still, I cannot wait for September 2nd!

I actually feel really bad for Boise State. They come into a conference assuming they'll finally have more competition, and two of the 3 decent teams leave. I assume if BYU does go independent, TCU will probably find something else as well. I guess we'll see what happens.

I think BYU is making a huge mistake because I don't *think* TCU is going anywhere.

Then again GP mentioned something big is on the horizon, though we have no idea if he was referring to to Fresno and Co. Or not.

1. Basically everything else.
Scratch that. We're gonna be good.

Texas and USC have scheduled a home-and-home for 2017-18.

That might be epic, and then again, by that time it might be an inconference game.

Wow, USC kicks off next week. Crazy. It's weird going into a season not having any clue what to expect. It's kinda liberating.

Yet more reason for me to continue hating mascots. Friggin' furries.

It's official, BYU will be independent in football and WCC for all other sports. (I had to look up the WCC to see who was in it. Pretty much a "church schools only" conference)

Also, North Carolina????!!?!?

Football wise, a good one. I don't care about their other sports at all, and neither does most of their student body or alumni, so everyone seems fairly happy about it.

Considering the LDS church essentially makes these types of decisions, the move to a "church schools only" type of conference for other sports seems fairly understandable I guess. Pretty funny that the "West Coast" conference now will be playing games in Utah.

I don't know, a lot of reactions I'm reading, former BYU students included, are considering this to be one of the most foolish decisions evar. Why move from what would easily have become an AQ divison to an independent who turned their back on both the MWC and the WAC and is going to have to find schools to schedule out an entire season with (when a lot of the big name schools already have their out of conference schedules for 2011 set) for at least two more years before they inevitably sign on with another conference. There's just no way this turns out good for BYU. Imo anyways.
