@patriot "Secondly BYU is in a world of hurt with football going forward. Independence makes it all but impossible to attract any decent teams to Provo"

Yes, of course, since next year alone BYU only has Texas, Georgia Tech, BSU, and Utah coming to town (roll my eyes).

"I can see recruiting drying up in the next few years for the Y simply because the good players want to be in a BCS conference."

If it's true that all the good players to be in a BCS conference, than how is it any different now than when BYU was in the MWC?

BYU's fine and will continue to be fine. Independence is a great fit for a football program like BYU's, and I personally hope it will continue.

So thank you for your concern, but I have no doubts that BYU football will be around for a long time.

Go Cougars!

"BYU should not and will not ever play on Sunday. Having said that I have seen plenty of LDS people at Disneyland on Sunday - including myself - but the BIG 12 issue is an image thing that reflects poorly on the Church as a whole so Sunday football is out.

Secondly BYU is in a world of hurt with football going forward. Independence makes it all but impossible to attract any decent teams to Provo and I can see recruiting drying up in the next few years for the Y simply because the good players want to be in a BCS conference. It may end up being that BYU drops football within 10 years. Times are changing."

Duh, the Mormon faith is about appearance to about 80% of so called "active" members.

Remains to be seen. I think BYU has some quality brands coming to Provo this Fall though I'm curious as to how many they can get as things like the ACC adding a conference game continue to happen.

Regarding recruiting, this year's class was nothing to write home about. If this becomes a trend you're correct, they're in trouble.
