    Re: BYU versus Utah hiatus

    I fear dropping Iowa for an annual match against UNI. Sorry, playing UNI is exactly like the complaint Iowa fans have against ISU, except true. We gain nothing and lose respect if we lose (which we have done more than I'd like) Living in Waterloo and working in Cedar Falls... being around UNI fans is maybe worse than Iowa fans (because MOST are just closet Hawks).

    That said you can't blame Utah. Like the Big 12 they have one less cupcake game than the SEC and other conferences and nobody really cares. They just look at final records.

    Re: BYU versus Utah hiatus

    Is the Michigan game he's talking about part of the new Big Ten/Pac 12 schedule partnership or did they schedule it on their own?

    If the Pac 12 is keeping 9 games and adding a Big Ten team to every schedule, you have to end that series if you're Utah. BYU loses it when they need it more than ever. Iowa and ISU, while the series is awesome, the game is probably needed less than ever with both teams in conferences on the financial rise.

    ISU would have to do the same if we had 9 Big 12 games and an SEC team every year. I'd prefer the top conference got on the same page with 8 or 9 games and these partnerships, if they're all playing meat grinders then it doesn't matter.

    I read the Michigan game as a theoretical match-up in the new Big 10/Pac 12 series. I don't blame Utah for being cautious, they are still working on staying competitive in a BCS conference. They'll need a couple cupcakes on the schedule every year.

    I read in the comments that it seems it was scheduled on their own.

    The big question is if the Pac 12 keeps 9 games plus a Big Ten game. At that point they'd even beat the Big 12 in SOS.

    I'm fine with us keeping the Iowa game with 2 other games available to schedule, it means we'll eternally be a top 20 SOS and usually top 5-10 but that's ok. If we copy them and it's 9+SEC game the Iowa game will go bye bye or twice a decade or something.

    I'm pretty sure the Pac 12 said they are going to 8 conference games once the Big Ten/Pac 12 thing starts.

    Re: BYU versus Utah hiatus

    I think the prime motivator is money and the added home game, their other sports are in really deep holes relative to the other pac-12 schools and they have a lot of improvements to pay for to catch up. Also "big-times" byu on some levels saying we don't need the game due to our conference.
