    I think Cincy and UCF are more likely. They want to expand east.

    If we really believe that Cincy and UCF are more attractive choices than BYU to the Big 12, could someone please close down this thread and turn off the lights on your way out?

    I would agree. However there are now teams in the BCS that I would have considered crazy talk to get in over BYU.

    BYU is like the rich kid with a massive zit problem.

    Do your kids feel the same way about that zit problem? Is that why they don't want to go to BYU games anymore?

    Just another example of the BYU can do no wrong when it comes to anything crowd attacking byu71 for making a simple point.

    You and only you. But the board has an acute case of the DDD's.

    The DDD's is not forgetting something and beating a dead hoarse until it is decomposed and into the ground. Most people don't know or care there was once a dead horse there. The infected sufferer of the DDD's will not forget. Watching crime drams has lead to the knowledge that there are nitrates in the soil. And so they continue to pound on the soil where the dead horse once was.

    Ironically, if I keep calling this the DDD's I will have to acknowledge infection as well.

    Good, then I don't have any ill feelings towards those who are trying to torment me. I realize that even though I have sworn not to complain on here about scheduling, some see that as a weakness and are going on the attack. That's OK. I have always taken the high road.

    I have visited Europe 3 times. Nice place to visit with the exception of France in 1965. What I really liked about Europe is how old it seemed. Very layback and non competitive. I felt in any kind of confrontation I would have the upper hand. Especially in France where the men lay their heads on the women's shoulders instead of vice versa.

    Everyone killed by drones is either guilty or would be guilty in 5-10 more years! Kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out!

    I don't see how one could come to any other conclusion. GN'96 is a monster.

    Monster might be a little harsh. I still think he is only a "jackass".

    Speaking of DDD, I suspect he might agree with me that this post is ironic.

    If you read between the lines

    Big 12 = Needed concessions on Sunday Play
    Pac 10 = Had issues with the church

    Or, dealing with the sponsoring institution and their demands is a pain in the butt.

    Note: I do not consider refusing to play on Sunday as being a pain in the butt. I am more than happy to never belong in a big time conference if playing on Sunday is truly what they are requiring.

    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.
