Here is a chance for BYU TV to "See the good in the world", step up and broadcast these games. Great opportunity! It is the right thing to do. Go Cougs!

Is BYU TV broadcasting the games? Seems like it would be a smart move since BYU is ranked No. 1 in the Varsity Cup.

No they are not broadcasting these games. That is my point. They need to "see the good" in doing the right thing and broadcast these games. Their reason for not broadcasting is probably because this is an extramural sport and thus not under their banner....well I have donated to your station and I think these student athletes work just as hard as "intercollegiate athletes" and this would be a great opportunity to take a VERY successful, WELL LIKED program and sell it thruoghout the world via BYU TV. Come on BYU...."Rise to the Occassion"!

Not only would this be good for BYU TV, but since it is a growning sport in America, it would be quite a recruiting tool. Who knows the kind of athletes we could get here due to Rugby! This could lead to some great football players who change-over from Rugby.

Come on BYU TV, give it a shot and let this popular and growing sport be shown all over the world and be truely connected to BYU.

BYUtv is not televising this? Too bad. Outside of General Conference, Music and the Spoken Word and BYU sports, BYUtv is worthless.

Phoenix, AZ

BYU TV should step up and broadcast all home rugby games? They do it for other 'world' or Olympic sports. If they truly want to go international, this is a great way to get international eyeballs on the TV.

BYU fans need to inundate BYUtv with requests to start televising BYU Rugby.

My son has been badgering BYUtv for several years to do just that, but, for some reason, BYUtv hasn't seen the light, yet.
