What advantage does SUU provide over SJSU or Wyo? I'm all in on dropping SJSU and/or Wyoming but why add back in something that provides even less than those two?
I don’t know why you would get rid of Wyoming.

Why did he not go to U of Virginia? (I get why BYU was not considered, but that could change on his mission)

Re: BYU vs Boise

BYU big-timed USU for 50 years. Even during the 60s and 70s, when USU was an equal or better program. It was not until the late 1970s that BYU began to pull away from USU, but that was after nearly two decades of BYU trying to big-time USU. BYU, and Utah, worked hard to keep USU out of the WAC when...

Re: Uber and Lyft in Logan

Normal Uber would be fine. But (from what I’ve read) it seems to operate like an ordinary taxi service — base fare and then per mile and waiting time charges. It also doesn’t seem to operate through your smart phone. You literally seem to have to call for them to pick you up. There was a reason Uber...

Hopefully if it ends we hold our ground and demand a home/home from BYU again.
Why would we ask for anything less? They don’t have a superior bargaining position. I assume that the days of anything other than a home/home with them or Utah are long gone.

Re: This seems fair

I assume it’s probably contractual. If the MWC tried to withhold it, Boise would sue (and likely win). I think we have to hang this on the ADs and presidents who negotiated the original deal without a sunset provision. Craig’s just working with the hand he was dealt.
