End of Big 12 buzz not end of world for Bulls
“Everybody talks about the money and…how that’s gonna affect us,” AAC commissioner Mike Aresco told the Tampa Bay Times recently. "But you know, we’ve done all this with less money than the other guys right now. And yes, we need more (money) and we’re trying to get more.
“But Houston’s done every bit of this in our league. USF is building up their strength in our league.”
BYU athletics: Majority of Utahns say BYU shouldn’t adjust Honor Code for Big 12 admittance
A large majority of Utahns, and an overwhelming majority of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, believe Brigham Young University should not adjust its Honor Code so it can be invited to join the Big 12 Conference — a resistance that could keep one of the West’s foremost athletic and academic institutions in a league of its own, expansion observers say.
A mid-September Dan Jones & Associates statewide survey, commissioned by The Salt Lake Tribune and the Hinckley Institute of Politics, also showed that a majority of Utahns believe if the Cougars do not gain admittance into a Power 5 conference, they should remain a college football independent and keep most of their other sports in the West Coast Conference.
