I would like to see BYU in the NCAA championships. That would be a treat. They would there get more of a following...

I agree, but BYU men's soccer under the NCAA banner is not realistic because of Title IV requirements. If BYU develops and NCAA women's lacrosse, field hockey, and water polo teams, perhaps we can bring men's soccer and Rugby under the NCAA banner and maybe even bring back men's gymnastics and/or wrestling. If BYU wants to be attractive to a conference like the Big 12, getting more NCAA sports is one way to go. The other side is finances. BYU athletics pays it own way at the university. Men's basketball is self supporting, but football pays for everything else. I don't know if BYU can afford to take on new sports. It would be great though.....
