RE: BYU wants one or two more games
East coast bias plus the recent prolonged strength of the AAC relative to the other G4s is why UC is up there. BYU schedule has been awful, to no fault of their own. The AAC is clearly a deeper conference. Plus, you can't go nearly three weeks this late in the year without playing a game. If they can get an Oregon/Washington winner on the schedule, it would vault them over UC IMO. Unfortunately the winner of that game would probably get USC in the PAC 12 Championship game.

It is their fault. Join a conference, if you want the benefits of a set schedule. If you don't like that, I get it. These are the consequences though.

Once again, their Indy schedule WAS stronger than any G5 schedule.

Right, but his point still stands, because being in a conference protects you from having everyone cancel on you and you then being responsible for trying to coble together a schedule. UNC didn't have to make 100 phone calls to get a 10-game schedule, once the ACC decided it was playing, the conference took care of that.

Well my point stands that planning your athletic conference allegiances around the possibility of a worldwide pandemic is not sound reasoning.

If that was your point, then OK, I agree.

BYU had a set schedule it just happens that COVID ruined it. I forgot how good BYU's original schedule was. Here it is:

09/03 – at Utah
09/12 – Michigan State
09/19 – at Arizona State
09/26 – at Minnesota
10/02 – Utah State
10/10 – Missouri
10/16 – Houston
10/24 – at Northern Illinois
10/31 – OFF
11/06 – at Boise State
11/14 – San Diego State
11/21 – North Alabama
11/28 – at Stanford

That is a great schedule.

RE: BYU wants one or two more games
Being thankful this Thanksgiving morning.
- BYU made its first ever appearance in the College Football Playoff rankings.
- In spite of all the covid-craziness of 2020, BYU has played 9 football games this season and hopefully get a few more in.
- The team is stronger and deeper than they have been in a long, long time. Several more players will be making the leap into the NFL draft/tryout cycle than recent years have produced.
- Despite the much lower ranking than any other poll has given, it was nice to hear college football analysts almost universally rally that BYU was not placed where they should be. All that national attention has actually been better than if they had come in high and have people looking down their nose at your ranking questioning if you are worthy of it. Since there will be several more revisions of this poll before it becomes final after week 16, I'm hoping BYU can change a few minds and still have the ability to move up.

Wishing a happy and healthy Thanksgiving to all of you and yours.
