Can I just say how nice it is belonging to a conference?

I don't like BYU football although the school is very good. I see that some fans justify the independence thing but know BYU would be better off in a strong conference. BYU is not Notre Dame so I don't see this independence helping their program in any way. I realize they will never be in the Pac 12 but the Big 12 is still a reality if ego's can be put away.

Utah and BYU are still attached in too many ways.

Go Utes!

"Pac-12 Network could release early football schedule soon." -- Bryan Fischer, College Football Recruiting blogger

"It's exciting, T-minus 75 days, I think, until we launch on August 15th...As early as next week we could be announcing the first three or four weeks of our football schedule." -- Larry Scott, Pac-12 Commissioner

"AWESOME!" -- Naval Vet

Good for Utah! Bad for Duckhunter.

Guys we don't even have to bring up BYU or their fans when it comes to a PAC-12 article, don't throw them any skittles PAC-12 tic, tock the game is locked and byu isn't even in the conversation. It's just not worth it guys, we've past them by in football 2-5 years in everything else.

....says the BYU fan who purposely clicked on a Utah article, wrote a not-so-witty comment, and clicked submit....

I love it, 5 comments and 4 are from utah "fans" obsessing about BYU.

As far as the pac12 network is concerned naval vet you probably ought to save your celebration until it is actually on enough cable and sattelite systems nationwide to actually be available to people. As of this post it is not going to be available to even 1/2 of the people BYUtv is available to and for those it is available to none of them can get it on a basic system. They have to pay for an expanded system to receive it. Outside of slc not to many care enough to pay for it.

LOL!

Hey Ducky,

Go poll america and ask them all what channel they can find BYUTV on. Then ask if they've ever actually watched it.

@motorbike

The difference is they actually can watch it if they desire to do so. That is a very big difference.

Ducky,

No my friend, the difference is how many viewers will actually tune into the games. Whether it's a paid subscription or free, how many televisions are tuned into the game? THAT is what matters.

"Next week the league will hold a "draft" with their media partners in order to pick games for air and should release a schedule sometime shortly thereafter."

Wonder if KJZZ got the notice or if Uncle Larry got a deal on the old 'theMTN' network equipment?

We shall now see the true marketability and appeal that the Utes bring to the table. Last year KJZZ saved the day, this year?

Get your excuses ready!

Why are you so obsessed with Utah Football? You troll the Utes threads; kinda sad.

Utah is part of the in croud. BYU is on the outside, looking in. Just the way it is.

The future football playoffs are very unlikely to be limited to conference champions because of (at least) two factors:
1- The SEC and Big 12 both want the 4 best teams available on the thought that they could qualify 2 teams in some years.
2- This will leave out the independents and there is a lot of support to include Notre Dame.

Actually to get viewers the station actually has to be on their tv sets.

Ducky,

I'm confident that wherever the Pac 12 channels land that they'll each be viewed as much or more than BYUTV. The main Pac 12 station is a no brainer, it's only the regional ones we can debate what viewership will be.
Won't it be hilarious if channels that are requiring a higher priced tier, depending on where you live, still generate more total viewers than BYUTV which is available on all basic packages throughout the country and beyond?

@motorbike

I'm sure we'll find out. But as of this date in time the pac12 family of networks is nowhere near BYUtv in distribution across the country, or the world. You can sit back and wait for that "hilarious" outcome, like you have a choice, but even that is not of any real importance to me other than as fodder to mock utah "fans".

All the majority of BYU fans care about is that they can see BYU sports, between ESPN, which will always far exceed anything the pac12 networks will do, and then BYUtv, BYU fans have better access to watch their schools sports than pretty much any other fans of any other school there is. This is a fact.

What is hilarious is utah "fans" like yourself tha somehow think any of that is a negative for BYU fans. I understand the basic utah "fan" inferiority complex contributes to your need to make ridiculous claims but other than for mocking of you purposes I don't care. I do love the mocking part though, really enjoy it.

Aren't you one of the frantic and emotional ones who claim that the Indy-WACers have a "National Brand", while the Utes' only appeal is inside the SL Valley? And if the vast majority of Utah fans live within Utah's borders [which I believe they do], then wouldn't "all the majority of [UTAH] fans care about is that they can see [UTAH] sports, between ESPN...and then [FOX and/or the Pac-12 Network]"? So what would you have to jeer about? It seems to me that the only folks that should be concerned is the number of Utah fans/alumni who live outside of the Utah/Colorado region. And yet...we're NOT! Last year, I watched 9 Utah games on "national TV". This year, if I get AT LEAST 10, no harm, no foul.

Duckhunter:

P.S.: Back here in Philadelphia, I get ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and ESPNU. I also get byuTV. Do you know how many Y games I watched last season?

ONE! And that's INCLUDING the postseason. But that "ONE" game was a great one, wasn't it? 54-10! As for your byuTV...I watched it TWICE: General Conference in Oct. 2011, and Mar. 2012.

Now on the flip side, I'm quite certain you watched more than 1 Utah game...even if it was on Vs. or KJZZ.

"I understand the basic utah 'fan' inferiority complex contributes to your need to make ridiculous claims but other than for mocking of you purposes I don't care."

Inferiority complex? Need to make ridiculous claims? Wow! Duckhunter = uber hypocrite

Have fun down there in the WAC! Haha!

@Naval Vet - Seriously, do you think ESPN would broadcast 11 of BYUs 13 games last year if nobody was watching them? I know it's hard for you to admit, but the number of fans who follow / watch BYU football eclipses the number who follow / watch Utah.

You can continue to enjoy your 54-10 thumping of BYU last year or you can look at the season as a whole, where BYU did quite well. I think we all know which team would have won if the game were played in November when BYU was peaking and Utah was getting thumped by a terrible Colorado team.

But I'm happy to concede, U got the best of us on September 17. This year will not be the same.

Coug Fanin Texas .......If you look at the entire season as a whole for Utah it's much the same. Thou Utah had an off day in getting beat by Colorado, they did win a much better Georgia Tech team in their bowl game and we did it with a D2 quarterback. As for this years rivalry game you need to realize a few things. Utah has its best recruiting class of all time, they will be even better this year, and the rivalry game is at Utah. I'm sure last year you predicted a Couger win just like this year. Don't count on it. It's not going to happen.

@naval vet

No you didn't watch 9 utah games on national tv. You are be untruthful again.

LOL!
