Re: LET'S PLAY FOOTBALL!

Tough start to the season, but just happy that we have football back. How come SDSU and AF are not having to play the last game of the season? I think the conference is letting teams that originally scheduled BYU late in the season keep it. Probably something to do with lawyers. Wouldn't that apply...

If I recall correctly, one of the downsides of renovation is that it could take at least a year to complete, we would have to find somewhere else to play home games for one season.
Well fast track the build now. Without fans the team could play in the Estes Center this year.
