    Agree with the BYUtv people...In looking at the BYUtv schedule for Saturday morning, why not bump the following programs?

    11 am: Dining with the Dean (repeat)
    11:30 am: Legends episode (repeat)
    12:00 pm: Houston @ BYU baseball game (this is the tougher program to move, but I guarantee you there will be more eyeballs wanting to look at Lavell Edwards stadium than across the street at Larry Miller a minimum, BYUtv should send a broadcast team to the spring football game and then play it back later Saturday night as an early Easter gift to Cougar Nation...

    Will the spring game be broadcast on BYUtv? I sure do want to see it here in Texas.

    Cougar fans, I have bad news. I wrote personally to BYUtv and heard this back via email:

    Thank you for your email and for your support of BYU Football and BYUtv! We are not able to broadcast the Spring game this Saturday, though we appreciate your interest.

    If you have any other questions or comments, please feel free to contact us directly.

    The utes will likely send spies. Does anyone remember how Kyle Whittingham banned Jan Jorgensen from watching the ute practices because of fears that Jorgensen was a spy for BYU?

    There are probably as many BYU fans living o/s of the Wasatch Front as are living there. It would be very beneficial to all BYU fans to have an opportunity to see this game - so why not have it on BYUtv.

    Finally something I can agree with. Living in Florida I would love to see BYU perform in a spring game. If any way possible lets see it on BYUTV.

    Hey, they should broadcast this Spring game on BYUtv. We East and West coast fans could use the fix. Make it so Mr. Holmoe.

    Why not put this on BYUtv? Isn't that why they have BYUtv? A lot of the Big-10 and Big-12 schools have their games on TV. What's the problem? This would be a great benefit for all Cougar fans outside of Utah.

    Yes, please put it on BYUtv!

    Yes, Spring Game on BYUTv, that would be awesome!!! All of us east coasters, who can only dream of seeing the spring game live, will love it.

    I agree with CougFanninTX. I believe that a video will be made by someone (even just for training purposes). So why not share the video with us eager fans?

    If you are afraid the competition will benefit from this, you can always mix up the numbers on the jerseys of the players. That should keep them guessing - us too, for that matter. Sounds fun to me.

    I 100% agree with CougFaninTX... c'mon BYU tv. This is a must see for hungry Coug fans.

    BYU's Winter Semester ends earlier than most schools.

    Isn't it a bit early to have a spring game? I feel like most other colleges are waiting till the second half of April.

    BYU fans should come out and support this. Spring games are a lot of fun.

    I can't wait. Should be an epic battle.

    It'll be nice to see BYU play some live football in the spring for a change!
