    Urban went on the record while he was at UF regarding playing utah. He did not want to play utah and KW said he did not want to play UF. Both said they like each other to much and though playing each other might change that. Could OSU come to res, of course they could, but will they come, I have strong doubts. Of course they play a rotating schedule, that would put them in SLC once every 22 years.

    "don't forget he was in high stressed at big program Florida and now coaching THE Ohio State (who cares about this THE) bigest stressful program. We will see how far he'll go."

    Added to that stress is a team that has been under the watchful eye of the NCAA.

    "If he wants an easy win, then why not schedule a bottom of the Pac team."

    And if Kyle wants an easy win, why not schedule a middle of the WAC team? BYU could play that role for Utah perfectly. The last 10 years have proven that.

    Are those grapes you're munching on a bit sour? It must hurt to read this as you contemplate your WAC/WCC-heavy sports schedules for the next few years.

    Furthermore, if football doesn't kick in until 2017, and it could take anywhere between 1 and 12 years for Utah to play Ohio State, is anyone really confident that Urban Meyer will still be at Ohio State by then? The guy doesn't exactly have a great track record for longevity in any one job.

    The more relevant question is if Utah is tied up into playing one more non-conference game against the Big 10 every year, that only leaves two games to fill every year, begging the question of what happens then to playing BYU? It certainly is still possible, but becomes less likely unless both schools are fully committed to making it happen no matter what. And the games against Utah St. would seem to me to be in serious danger altogether of ever happening. One or the other would probably have to go

    It's a 1 in 24 chance because we don't know if Ohio State would be in Ohio or in Utah.

    Regardless, this is just another benefit of belonging.

    The big conferences are starting to align more and more. The "Have's and the Have Not's". Don't be surprised if all the big conferences start doing more and more scheduling and watch the big bowl games only include the big conferences again.

    Any discussion of this scenario seems a bit premature to me. All accounts I have read of the PAC12-Big10 collaboration indicate that it probably won't affect football scheduling until 2017. Who knows if Urban Meyer will still be coaching then? Or that Ohio State and Utah will be paired up at all? I guess there's a 1-in-12 chance of it happening, but again, aren't we jumping the gun a bit here?
