Holmoe reiterated that BYU is set to follow the course of independence, but that he is also carefully monitoring the college football landscape.

Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News looks into what the Big 12 might do should Texas A&M jump to the Southeastern Conference.

What if the Big 12 decides to add a team?

"Brigham Young made the most sense from a revenue standpoint, but one source suggested that Lone Star State political pressure may force the Big 12 to add Houston — even though UH doesn’t add value from a media rights standpoint," writes Wilner.

In other news, former BYU running back Harvey Unga has left the Chicago Bears for personal reasons.
