    Why are the kids on the hill so obsessed with trying to convince themselves that BYU is irrelevant?

    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.

    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.

    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.
