One of my favorite tombstones reads: “I told you I was sick.”
Who really knew BYU was serious about leaving the MWC to go independent in football and transplanting its other sports into another conference? But BYU did just that in reaching an agreement with the West Coast Conference. Of course, in the process it deflated the WAC and MWC …
Will BYU stay put? Right up until the Big 12 or Pac-10 calls. But if you’re the WCC, a few dates with the super model is better than none at all.

For UH, there’s that slight glitch in the plan of going independent in football and joining the Big West in other sports: The Big West hasn’t extended any invitation.
UH is the guy outside trying to bribe the bouncer.
Could UH eventually receive an invitation? Sure. But the buy-in will be hefty. UH just doesn’t have enough leverage.

Enough of that. Back to football.
The Warriors have their depth chart and game plans in place for tomorrow’s opener. If left wideout Rodney Bradley can go the distance, then Darius Bright is on a need-to-play basis.
It should be interesting if slotback Greg Salas will be used as a defensive back in certain situations. I don’t think it’s necessary since freshman Bubba Poueu-Luna probably could fill that role. But if it came down to Salas being needed in that role, it will mean the game is on the line late in the fourth quarter.
