    Now Utah has just Utah State to beat up on these days just like CU has CSU. Another boost to CU-Utah.

    Why would Utah keep their game with state over BYU?

    Wasn't BYU already independent?

    Once college football goes to a 14-game schedule, these kinds of games will come back.

    This is clearly Larry Scott's plan to force the CU/jUjU rivalry to take off.

    Big 12 might add Louisville and BYU.

    There going to need to add teams/schools like that to maintain stability. Otherwise they may end up on the edge of imploding again.

    FSU and Clemson are potential Big 12 additions:

    If it sounds far-fetched, Clemson has formed an advisory committee to explore the possibility:

    Can't blame them for not being big on the addition of Pitt and 'Cuse. Can't say I'm wild about it either. I still bet both Clemson and FSU stay put though

    More than likely they will stay but can't blame that Clemson board for being so critical of the "All Carolina Conference" and Swofford's "baby blue mafia". That was great stuff. :lol:

    The Big 12 should forget about BYU. With the addition of WVU, they'll need some schools to bridge the geographic gap. Louisville, Cincinatti and Memphis come to mind. Solid basketball programs with crappy football teams that UT can bitch slap around. They each come with an added benefit of being in a middle sized media market as well.

    BYU seems like a massive "meh" to me from a Big 12 perspective, unless the bible belters v. the mormons angle has play....and ugh, what a world that is.

    I agree. Geographically they really should find some support for WVU. However, I can see the appeal of BYU since it would get them back in the mountain time zone (a growing part of the US) and the national Mormon following. I would also imagine BYU does actually add dollars to the conference rather than dilution.
