CougarLinks: Is BYU 'the cleanest homeless man in college football'?
Matt Gade, Deseret News
"Geography, oddball conference histories, and the completely cracked incentive structures of the sport have turned BYU into an even stranger outlier than they might already be, a perfectly fine animal no one wants to touch for too long, or at too close a distance," writes Spencer Hall. "They can stay the night, maybe even set a few dates on a steady basis here and there, but in the end they're still one of college football's last true independents — maybe the last true independent. That's been their choice, for the most part, but that it's one of their few options at this point speaks to the difficulty of making any sense of how things actually work in America's finest unpaid volunteer sport."
