      The zoobie out-laws are in town. My F-I-L’s extended family have had BYU football tickets for decades.

      So my F-I-L stayed in Springville with his brother and was talking to his nephew, a nephew who blew over $2000 on fireworks and it probably didn’t hit even register in his pocket book. (not trying to focus on his success, he’s a good dude) So this nephew when asked whether he was buying season tickets this year, said definitely not, the home schedule wasn’t good enough to waste the money. This nephew was a BYU cheerleader in the 1990s.

      If they are losing blue blood families like this, pun intended, I can’t imagine how much longer the program can survive status quo. Things need to change or they are headed to Playoff level or getting rid of football.

      Sorry to pollute the board, but just wanted to provide an observation.

      Oh ffs, spending over $2k on fireworks. *facepalm* Whacked utah priorities.

      Always buy the tickets even if your team sucks. And if not that, season pass at snowbird!

      I have noticed the extreme desperation to return to the mythical glory days of BYU.

      I’m a bit surprised. They get Utah, Wisconsin, and Boise State at home this year; all 3 of which will likely be ranked when they visit Provo. That is probably the 2nd or 3rd best home schedule they have had since going independent. Seems like next year would be the year that their fans would pass on buying tickets. That home schedule is complete dog crap.

        BYU’s biggest problem is not their home schedule or recruiting or anything other than Utah in the PAC-12. BYU’s program hasn’t changed since the 1990’s. The problem is, Utah has blown past them, so they are starting to see why no one in the country takes them seriously. 

        Must suck to be BYU fan.

          Yep. Most of their angst would simply disappear if Utah hadn’t joined the Pac-12 or if they had been invited to join the BigXII. But, we did and they weren’t so sucks to be them.

            BYU went from a program that was spending 35 million a year on football in the MWC. 

            #2? Utah, who was spending less than 20 million. They completely outspent everyone and it showed with their domination. 

            Now? Everyone is spending the 60 million they spend a year. So, they have nothing to sell. No conference. No facilities. No location. All they have is religion.

        Agree, the zoobie home schedule is actually pretty good this year.  Guy may be basing decision on recent Wagner schedule, or is counting those ranked teams as losses already (except the Utes, they KNOW they will crush the Utes).

        Only thing about this year is once they lose a couple of games TDS is playing for nothing.   They have no bowl tie-in and have to hope that an ACC team doesn’t get to 6 wins to get to a 3rd tier bowl.

      Did the nephew get beat up by a Utah cheerleader?

      I think you’re right, they’re getting some good match ups for away games, or neutral sites but they can’t get anyone to come to Provo late in the season when everyone else is deep in conference play. They need to get into another conference bad, G5, P5, whatever. Even a MWC schedule would be better than most of what they’re putting up. The sad part is, these home and home games they’re scheduling, we all know the other team is going to buy out the visit to Provo after they have the initial game at their home location. This independence isn’t a long term solution.
