Re: SDSU/BSU to the AAC?

I don't see San Diego State moving to AAC in football only. They're more of a basketball school than football school, and basketball would suffer being in the Big West or WAC. WCC is a non-option because they only take private schools. Unless the AAC's going to take them in all sports, I don't see i...

Re: Maile's "three pillars" recruiting strategy (from the report)

The only one on the three pillars that I'm still in agreement with is "Locals." USU is a public school and should have representation from the state. It may not be the best players from the state, but USU has had a history of having some really good in-state talent. Obviously they should stretch out...

Re: Rick pitino I mean coach Pope at BYU

Word in the inner circles of BYU athletics is that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree and pope learned some recruiting tricks from his head coach in college (pitino). He has been using Doterra funds to recruit and pay illegally and sanctions are likely. Oh things are going to get bad down in P...

Re: I got to hand it to BYU.

Top ranking G5 champion will get automatic birth to a NY6 bowl which Cincinnati most likely will be, but BYU can get into one of those New year's six bowls as an at-large.

Re: 2020-21 Non conference schedule

It just makes sense in basketball because of the amount of games needed to fill a schedule and the...
