    I have no interest in giving BYU a hard time. I've had family who play for the football team, have been professors, and president of the university. BYU is not the root problem.

      That's interesting. It seems like I see BYU mentioned in most discussions, and usually favorably.
      I haven't curated my feed well enough it seems.

        • So it seems that KU and ISU did reach out to the B1G but there wasn’t much interest apparently…

          I can’t imagine Iowa would be happy for ISU to be in the same conference for similar reasons aTm doesn’t want UT in the SEC.

            Even without Iowa's objections, why would the Big 10 want ISU?

              Yeah, no way. No upside there.

                          We all love his family member. That's not the point. SU is obviously dealing with cognitive dissonance, which is why he is subtly trying to stake a middle ground where BYU is OK, but the church is still horrible and BYU suffers accordingly. Maybe you missed his post the other day where he argued that BYU faculty would vote to get rid of the HC given the chance. That is funny on two counts: 1) it is not remotely true, and 2) it takes some incredible hubris to claim to have that level of insight into how BYU faculty think.
