As for the idea some have that liberals in the PAC hate the conservatives at BYU and vise versa; this just doesn’t have to be. BYU will have to learn diversity. The PAC will have to learn diversity too by admitting BYU. Liberals always preach diversity, and I think they can actually do it in this case and admit BYU.
Now that is about the funniest thing I've heard in a long time... ;D
You are either a liberal, or you don't know many... :)
Don't get me wrong your argument makes all kinds of sense...practically speaking. BYU and Utah, I have always felt are the logical choices for Pac-10 expansion. I just can't see it happening.
The politics of the BYU (including the Sunday play) situation are too great to overcome at this time.
(Agree with Aztec, DawgDuck, etc. on this one!) ;D
And now I will stop beating that dead horse.
BYU is BCS caliber for all reasons you state...They would have to go Big 12, and there needs to be movement for that to occur. Just can't see it.
Maybe you are right, and getting left at the championship game dance without a ticket will stimulate change in the Pac-10, but philosophical changes are difficult for those who take political stances at either end of the spectrum. ;)
The Pac-10 would LOVE either Texas or Colorado (or both), and would take a lot of different partners with them (read CSU and A&M even), but they would have a hard time swallowing BYU even for Utah.
I'd like to be wrong on this one! 8-)
