One more quote...After Stanford women beat UCONN womens basketball team and
broke their longest ever winning streak,reporters interviewed the LOSING coach
questions first, then the reporters asked the Stanford coach questions all about
UCONN. Tara (the STANFORD coach) said "Tonight isn't about UCONN, it's
its never too late for BYU Utah BSU TCU ARIZONA, ASU from forming their own
conference.....Just make sure they get a real Conference President this time~!
Joe, thank you for having the U's best interests in mind.Or is it
more wishful thinking that Utah had stayed because then BYU wouldn't have made
the program-killing decision to go independent?All Chris Hill had to
do was look at the following facts:1. $22M a year vs. $1.5M a year.2. TV contract with stations people have actually heard of.3. Road trips
to places like LA and San Fran instead of Laramie and Albuquerque.4.
Relegation of BYU to permanent little brother status.Frankly, 10
seconds was longer than I expected Hill to take in making that decision.
Joe - I might have agreed with you if it weren't for the horrible TV contract
the MWC has.
Too bad Chris Hill didn't stop longer than 10 seconds and think.If
Utah would have stayed, TCU and BYU would have stayed as well. Add in BSU and
you have a much better conference than the Pac-10.U fans are going
to look back on that day and realize how good they could have had it.
