Thread: Independent Scheduling rumors

    I love independence.

    A couple of thoughts on scheduling:

    (1) BYU/Army

    (From October 2013)

Let me rephrase that - I think that if you aren't doing it that way it is a pretty good indicator that you aren't being successful as an independent.

    It seemed like UMass was pretty quickly able to get a four-game series lined up with Army when they went independent a few years ago. I imagine Holmoe is open to anything reasonable - it would be a great series for BYU for many reasons - so Army likely isn't interested in getting anything on the schedule with us right now for whatever reason.

    (2) BYU/Liberty

    Strange bedfellows, perhaps? Liberty is moving up to FBS in 2019 (I think?) and will be competing as an independent. Will we see any games with Liberty in the future? At one point in the recent past, applicants to Liberty had to sign a statement that they didn't believe American Indians were descended from Jews, that Satan isn't the brother of Jesus, and other denial-of-Mormonism questions. Maybe they still do. Would Liberty associate with BYU out of football scheduling necessity? Would BYU schedule games with a school that has been so anti-Mormon in the past (and maybe the present)? Time will tell.

    @FBSchedules on Twitter says ESPN has moved the UNLV game from Saturday Nov 11 to Friday Nov 10.

    Sweet. Now you can make it down for the game and back to Eug in time to coach on Saturday.

    Looks like there may be late opening in UT's schedule thanks to California's new travel ban. Maybe BYU should stiff the Utes and head to the Darrell K Royal instead. Who wants to play a bottom of the bucket Pac-whatever team when they could play a top Big-12 team instead?

    Whatever it is BYU could just put it against Kry Baby's tab.

    Yeah, but I'm mainly concerned about the difficulty of our schedule and the health of our players.

    Watering down the schedule with Texas instead of the Utes? Typical Cougar talk.

    Yes! They all come around eventually.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Va. Tech H-H 2026 & 2030.

    Would I prefer that this series was wrapped up prior to my 50th birthday? Sure. But I'll take it.

    Yes, have some respect for those who are highly, highly unlikely to be around for the return trip.

    Serious question: will colleges still play football in 2030?

    We better get our coaching staff figured out quick...the schedules after 2018 are pretty tough.

    It is like we are never wanting to see a 10 win season again.
