When is a mid-major school not a mid-major school?

When the SEC is in need of a little scheduling juice.  Congrats, BYU and Army!

    In other news, Alabama just released their 2019 out of conference schedule:

    9/2 Army—Tuscaloosa, AL
    9/16 Georgia State–Tuscaloosa, AL
    9/23 Army–Tuscaloosa, AL
    11/24 Army–Tuscaloosa, AL

    Actually I would love to see us do a home and home with Army. For Georgia fans to see the Plain and that incredible place would be fantastic. They should not be considered a Power 5 equivalent, but it is an awesome place and atmosphere.

    ND should be considered a Power 5 member. Shouldn’t have needed any discussion. Probably ought to consider Boise as well.

    You saw it here first folks, BYU will join the BIG12 pretty soon, so there will not be much quibbling then.

    • Since big12 needs to add two teams that one makes tremendous sense. Another religious school (like Baylor), has a national following, is good at football and basketball, and geographically makes sense. The problem is who is the 12th team? Just to add BYU alone cuts the pie again without the increased income of adding two more teams.

        My guess is Houston, Cincy or Boise. The latter would be a good pairing for BYU, but they are really not very strong in any sport but football. My guess is Houston. Cincy would look like a desperate choice and is such a little brother to tOSU.
