Ok... I know it is monday, and I have a cracking headache... but isn't
there a little known indie called Notre Dame who has won the national title more
than once, has a rather large commitment to football... that is being excluded
from this conversation? Or is the author already considering them as part of
the ACC?I am sure I am missing something here.
Not worried. The 2.0 version of the bcs is going to do whatever it
has to do to be inclusive of every team; there's no legitimate reason that
a team should be required to win a particular conference championship in order
to have equal access. The Big East is pushing for this to force BYU into joining
their conference. If the Big East really wants BYU, they need to start thinking
outside the box and find a way to give BYUtv the same type of
broadcast/rebroadcast arrangement it already has with ESPN.
Key points of the article:"But will BYU, as an independent, be
unaccounted for in the process?" Is unaccounted for a synonym for
irrelevant? To answer the question No - they will be accounted for and given as
much credit as is due."Army was considered a major power when it
won (National Championships) in the 1940's" Unlike the team that won
the "National Championship in 1984.Looks like another bowl
possibility for the PAc-12 (That would be 8.) Inaddition a bowl possibility for
Mountain West, Conference USA, Sun Belt, MAC, and Big East. Do you mean there
is still a chance for an independent team? I was going to suggest the likey
independent teams form their own bowl game; however, the Y schedules New Mexico
State, and Idaho. Perhaps the best of 3 or 5. Helps in the scheduling problems
and provides a real test of which team would be superior.
Why are the kids on the hill so obsessed with trying to convince themselves that
BYU is irrelevant?
