Re: AAC Western Expansion Smoke

There is no longer such a thing as a "power conference", at least not in the way that we know them, now. There will be dominant conferences, but no fixed set of conferences with benefits built into the system.

Does this change our OL outlook for this season? Was he just providing depth? Was the new staff looking to use him more? It seems like I've seen a lot of folks worried about the OL this season already. Seeing this makes me worry even more, albeit from an uneducated standpoint.

Worth noting that Bill C has said that the BYU numbers are wrong. He had a typo that zeroed out the LB returning production. They climbed up to roughly 125.
They're returning 125% of their production?!

Re: 16.5 Point underdog to Wazzu

I'm not really familiar with how Vegas odds work. Is there any accounting for the uncertainty of a specific pick? For instance, they may set the line at +16.5 USU, but if the oddsmakers don't have as much confidence due to more unknowns does it affect the payout of the pick?
