Brad Rock: Seriously, how much does BYU want major bowls and championship Deseret News June 25, 2019 1:40 p.m.
The AAC (American Athletic Conference) a (G5 conference) could be looking for a replacement for the Huskies’ dreadful football program.
It is my opinion that getting a major bowl is not as important than being able to play 4 or more P5 teams per season plus teams like Boise State, Utah State, and even SDS.
Soon I hope that we will be able to shed games like the other 4 (give me) games
that are on our schedule.
I am patient. I am willing to wait until we can grow into the ability through experience by playing the top 8 teams on our schedule, until such time as we can have a winning season, without scheduling teams like those on our bottom 4.
Joining a G5 conference would just turn us BACK into
being a mid-major team in just another mid-major conference. Now playing as an independent team, many conferences, if not all, now see us as an Independent P5 team. I like that. I don’t like being a G5 team in a G5 conference.
There is no going back.
Missing out on Conference Championships by not being in a G5 conference, so that maybe, just maybe, we might be able to get a bowl game vs. a P5 team,
is not important to me .
As an Independent P5 team, we get to play at least 4 P5 teams each season.
We have the respect of being (maybe) an Independent P5 team, playing close to a P5 schedule instead of the disrespect of only being a Mid-major team in a
Mid-major conference playing a mid-major schedule.
The AD scheduling is hard as an Independent, especially in November. Yes. I know that.
