    This is a fairly long read but I found it interesting. How TV drove the merger between the Big-8 and SWC.

    by MTM
    2016-08-16 13:15:06

    How a 1984 Supreme Court ruling was the impetus for schools having more control over TV money.

    Big-8 and SWC had been talking about merging into a 16 team conference.

    ESPN stepped in and essentially dictated they'd take the Big-8 plus 4 from the SWC and that was that. Texas, A&M, Baylor, and Texas Tech. Leaving TCU, Houston, Rice, and SMU out in the cold.

    And Texas talked to the PAC, SEC, and Big-10 as far back as the mid-80s.

    Why can't they all be like this?

    by MTM
    2016-08-09 09:12:02

    This is the kind of thing that is going to happen now that the church has instituted the policy of refusing baptism to the children of gays, on the heels of being a major player in the prop 8 fiasco. You make the bed you sleep in. Serious mistakes have been made in the way the church is dealing with the LGBT community, both inside and outside the church. These mistakes have a cost. Forget football, the human toll (youth suicides, depression, etc) is much higher. As a BYU fan I applaud these groups for the social pressure they are putting on the Big 12 and BYU over this issue. It is pressure like this that will result in change - healthy change that will extend far further than the football field.

    Brady Hoke to Oregon as DC. Boise's DC to Arizona as DC.

    2016-01-20 19:50:15

    The Ducks ranked 117th in total defense this past season (485.3 yards a game) and 116th in scoring defense (37.5 points a game).

    Hoke's Michigan teams were solid on defense. The year before his arrival, the Wolverines ranked 110th in total defense (450.8 yards per game). In Hoke first season, Michigan improved to 17th (322.2). In his last year, the Wolverines ranked seventh in the nation, allowing 311.3 yards a game.

    Yates spent the past two seasons at Boise State as defensive coordinator, leading a unit that was ninth nationally with 31 forced turnovers. He was a defensive back at Boise State from 1996-99 and coached defensive backs from 2003-11.

    I usually keep the Zoob Category unchecked but every now and then I feel compelled to say something.

    This past football season BYU was the #1 draw for their opponent's home games one time. That was Utah State.

    In every other game, save Nebraska, they were in the bottom half of their opponent's home attendance.

    Nebraska 3rd of 7
    UCLA 4th of 6
    Michigan 6th of 7
    San Jose State 4th of 6
    Missouri 7th of 7
