Here's an idea. DN Sports Reporters stop writing about BYU and conference expansion. As a fan of BYU who is hopeful that the experiment with isolationism - heretofore referred to as Independence - will soon end, the constant prognostication of the DN Sports Reporters is worse than the team's performance, if at all possible. This team has displayed an ineptitude not matched by any other BYU team in recent memory, and during what has to be the worst possible time in college sports with all of the expansion and realignment going on. So please, Jeff, Dick, et al, give us a break and report on that pie in the sky opportunity WHEN it actually HAPPENS. Until then, just the facts will do.

If our jealous little brothers weren't so insecure, they wouldn't feel compelled to spam every BYU article with their meaningless drivel.

The fact that you're here trolling another BYU article, proves your insecurity.

BYU will make the WCC a regular 2- or 3-bid conference. What has pitiful bottom-dwelling Utah added to the Pac 12?

Not insecure, just here to have a laugh at BYU's expense. It sure is easy since BYU went independent and got even worse at football.

Oh Boys, Please join something fast or you are going to be the only Independent in the Country. Big East, Big 12, Something!!!!!!!

Sports can really bring the greed out of people. A year ago, TCU was upset that BYU would leave the MWC, and referred to it as dishonest. Since than, TCU has jumped twice for greener pastures. They broke their agreement with the Big East. Not a honest or Christian thing to do. Their cheerleaders have also changed their attire, which doesn't represent a Christian school, but more of the Dallas Cowboy girls. They were displayed more on the scoreboard than any thing related to football.

I would hope, BYU won't break it's committment with the WCC. As a long time cougar fan, I would rather see them drop sports all together than not keep its word.

Football needs to stay independent and let the basketball program to the Big East.

Boo. BYU. Stay where you're at. I'm tired of you thinking about switching. I'm a BYU fan. but just stay where you are.

Not insecure?

Only a very insecure BCS conference team fan would feel the need to spam an irrelevant, non-AQ team's blog to try to drown the disparity of their own team's dismal 1-4 conference record.

Sure are a lot of Coug fans here saying that U fans are insecure.

In the long run, when it came time to settle who was better this year on the field... BYU came up quite short. Six touchdowns plus of margin short.

Everything else is opinion.. the only head-to-head fact is a 54-10 score.

Try again next year.

"Just can't admit to being so clueless about BYU's BCS wins/losses can you?

BYU is 2-2 versus BCS teams.
Utah is 2-4 versus BCS teams."

anti BCS, you mistake me for being a Utah fan. Your above post only shows that both Utah and BYU haven't done well against BCS teams. Regardles of how terrible Utah is doing, BYU's quest for BCS respect won't come when they lose to BCS schools on the national stage.

Fact is...Texas, Utah, TCU equal 3 losses, not 2. Go ahead and argue that TCU is not a BCS team, but they will be next year as members of the Big 12 and they have played in a lot more BCS games than the Cougars.

I actually like BYU, but their fans are far removed from reality in terms of how good BYU really is this year...they just aint that good (neither is Utah).

Well, you can't have it both ways. BYU and Utah have the SAME PAC 12 record this year over the same team. You say Utah has proven they can get to a BCS game. Great. BYU has just as much legitimacy. They have won a National Championship. What's that you say? You can hang onto the past? Well, have far back do we go?

I'd sure love to know who Utah's QB prospects are. If they have any, why are they sticking with Hayes?

Trading out West Virginia and Syracuse for BYU and Boise State makes the Big East as strong (if not stronger) than it was. It must kill Utah fans to see BYU in the mix. You thought they would just be left behind? Are you nuts? BYU is having a down year. But be realistic, BYU is every bit as much a BCS worthy program as Utah is. To say otherwise is just ignorant of the facts and of college football in general.

You're just fortunate that your big brother felt sorry for you and threw U a 7-turnover fest bone or our little brothers wouldn't have a single memorable moment from their first big boy conference season.

BYU has yet to beat a team with a higher Sagarin ranking than Montana State.

I love the smell of desperation in the morning. Byu played it's last card and will be left out in the cold. It destroyed the original WAC due to it's influence and bullying, and left the MWC in much the same manner- no one want's this princess in thier conference. This is the beginning of the end competetive sports at BYU.

Same old song and dance from fantasy land BYU fans. If your national title, supposed legitimacy and supposed BCS worthy program meant anything. You would have been invited to a power conference. Forty years of WAC supremacy proves that. So stop crying and move on. To say otherwise is just ignorant of the facts and of college football in general.

Sounds like Texas. Doubt they wan't that kind of competition in the BIG12.

The better question is this: "Is the Big East part of BYU's plans?". I am nearly certain the answer to this is "No", thus the answer to if BYU is part of the Big East's plans is meaningless.

Nobody has to argue anything.

Fact: Ole Miss, Texas, Utah and Oregon State ARE BCS teams
Fact: TCU is NOT a BCS team

No matter how you slice it, BYU is 2-2 against BCS teams this season

For all you know BYU, BSU, Air Force, Navy, SMU, UCF, and Houston could all be BCS teams by this time next year, which would make BYU's record against BCS teams 3-3, according to your twisted logic.

"BYU has yet to beat a team with a higher Sagarin ranking than Montana State."

And Utah hasn't beaten a team ranked higher than BYU.

Some juvenile fans are so blinded by their hatred of BYU that they foolishly minimize the only quality win the Utes have this season.
