    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I like what we have going on right now with 10 teams, but if we were to expand BYU would be tops on my list.

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    Of course that would make sense for BYU, but I think they missed their opportunity.

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    Per the article, it looks like all of the benefits to inviting them would accrue to BYU rather than being a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    The BYU vs Baylor tailgate would be off the hizzy!!!! Wild times! Have the National Guard at the ready!

    BYU has been a name floated since the Big 8 expanded. It's never worked out so I don't expect it to work out now.

    Actually, I'd rather have Southern Methodist join than BYU

    And I'd like a week in Cancun with Kate Upton.

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    There are lots of reasons the Pac-12 picked Utah instead of BYU.

    Rutgers and the NYC market > BYU and the Salt Lake City market including the Mormon diaspora

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I think the BigXII missed their best chance for expansion when they didn't pickup Louisville. Louisville and BYU would have been 2 worthy additions. Now we are looking more at a scenario where if we picked up BYU we would also have to pick up an additional, less attractive school to make 12 schools. I can't think of any other quality schools out there (other that Notre Dame, but that ship has sailed).

    I do agree that BYU has a pretty good market and could bring in some viewers/money to the table. They even have their own TV channel! However, scheduling would be a bit*h!
