Look at 3:05.
I expect multiple pos reps for this.
jazzspazz acting like a spaz and being completely exposed (again)? Wow, what a surprise...
You might feel this way but I bet most BYU fans would choose MWC. If both are given equal access to the BCS most fans would chose to see their team be 10-2 most years and play in a BCS than be .500 most years and maybe play in a BCS bowl game every 10-15 years. I personally see no way that BYU becomes an annual contender in good conference like the Big 12, SEC and the PAC-12. What do you BYU fans vote? Easy road and regular BCS bowl games or hard road with good teams and rarely to never playing in a BCS?
My vote is "hell no the MWC"
No Utah fan would trade sucking in the Pac to competing in the MWC. No one regrets the decision to jump ship from dominating the MWC to sucking in the Pac-12. If the "easier road" was really the priority, then why wouldn't Utah fans jump ship and join the MWC luxury cruise? Instead of having to go through Stanford, USC, Oregon, Az schools, etc. they could just go through crappy MWC schools. right? Yet, no one from up north is wanting this. So why would BYU fans?
Utah and BYU fans are not that much different.
By far, most BYU fans would prefer being a bottom four Big 12 school in Football than being a top 3 MWC school.
I am not a fan of either Utah or BYU but I disagree with your assessment of what most fans would want but that just my opinion. I think most BYU fans dont care that much about other sports except basketball when the are good but only when they are good, and would cast aside all other sports if it was better for their football team. I think BYU fans would prefer going to regular BCS games rather than not and what ever conference gets them there great. But it is all just my opinion as is yours. My assessment of fans is based on anecdotal evidence just as yours is.
BYU wouldn't be "casting aside" their other sports by joining the Big 12. Quite the opposite, really. Casting aside the "other sports" was what happened when they made the jump to Independence. Now, Dave Rose is forced to play in high school sized gyms.
Joining the Big 12 would not only be great for Football but great for the other sports too. Big arenas, better tv, and better recruiting.
I think Colton nailed it. The whole rumor is bogus, but the only thing that is appealing about it is that the BCS is going to give the highest rated non-bcs conference champion a 5th auto bid or something - which actually doesn't mean jack **** because you're already going to get in under that scenario anyway if you are rated high enough.
No need to get antsy about any conference maneuvering right now. 2013's schedule is beautiful. Just let the pieces fall where they may, continue to fix the things that are preventing BYU from winning games right now, and everything will work out in the end to BYU's advantage.

As you say, for BYU it's more about exposure and they have a lot right now.

I agree it's a lot to do about nothing. But one of Bronco's main pushes has always been access to a BCS bowl. Right now that means a tough schedule and losing maybe 1 game. It's the tough road but I like it that way. Ute fans are excited to get their trash kicked around by Oregon and Stanford every other year. Well, the way things are looking BYU will get that opportunity 4-5 times in one year.
So in terms of accessing the BCS I understand that reasoning. But I think you'd be spiting your face there too much.
