I don’t know if BYU will get to the same level after they join the Big 12, but watching Iowa it reminds me of BYU… therefore I think BYU has a better opportunity to gain notoriety as a member of the Big 12 than they did as an independent. How do they compare or cause me to say this?
Iowa is a solid program - BYU is a solid program
Iowa has good talent - BYU has good talent
Iowa has good coaches - BYU has good coaches
Iowa wins games with a good game plan - BYU wins games with a good game plan
Other teams figure out Iowa schemes - other teams figure out BYU schemes
Iowa can’t adapt or change their scheme - BYU can’t adapt or change their scheme
Iowa fans get frustrated - BYU fans get frustrated
Iowa fans think woulda coulda shoulda - BYU fans think the same
Iowa got a beat down from Wisconsin, BYU got a beat down from Baylor, a future Big 12 opponent.
Iowa will once again drop in the rankings, BYU dropped in the rankings.
They are similar teams in many different ways.
