It would also bring back an old rival to the basketball scene. I'm all for it, but sadly probably wont happen.

    They would definitely help the MWC. It has become extremely watered down over the years.

    Adding BYU would be very good for football and also a positive for B-ball. If it left for the MWC, that might also incent Gonzaga as well.

    It would be good for both BYU and the MWC. I hope fake pride does not get in the way on either side.

    I don't know how 13 football teams would work, but 12 for basketball would be far better than 11, and the competition would be better for all.

    The MWC should stay away from BYU. They backstabbed the MWC when they left and they haven`t changed their uppity attitude toward some of the schools in the MWC including UNM.

    As soon as they join, assuming they do, they will team with another school to dominate the other members like they did when BYU teamed with Utah to basically control the MWC.

    They are not really needed by the MWC. In fact BYU in the MWC would hurt the MWC. Even when the MWC had TCU and Utah in the league along with BYU we couldn`t get into the BCS because schools outside the MWC do not want to be associated with BYU. I`ll be very surprised if they get a P5 invite.

    still it is difficult to quantify the visceral thrill of beating the borg. I don't have a problem with them coming back but Gonzaga would be better.

    Not in favor for BYU returning. Would rather go after SMU, or regional rivals, NMSU or UTEP. Upcoming Grand Canyon has future potential for recruiting purposes!

    Let them die on the vine. I’m enjoying them slide in to irrelevance.

    BYU’s kids ate older than all if college football.. wouldn’t you think they could handle the Power 5 losses much better than most schools do?
