Sure, this is old news to you Nuggies, thanks to Casey's
poaching intrepid reporting over a holiday weekend (!), but it seems to be about the only bit of BSU news out there right now, and so I link to it.
I just figured this would be a good thing to link to for reference. We still have five games with start times "To Be Determined," with only one of those picked up on a network (BYU on ESPN).
Mark Schlabach's Early Picks and Rankings
Of course he puts BSU at "barely in" while Arizona is at #13. Preseason rankings, amirite? Then in the video, Brett McMurphy is asked about any dark-horse candidates who might slip into the playoff, and of course, he's got a list of P5 household names with no mention of BSU. I don't think the selection committee is any different in their mindsets, unfortunately.
If you have a bit of time to kill, check out a full concert of one of my favorite bands, Punch Brothers. They're fun to listen to, but even more fun to watch! In my opinion, these are some of the best, most creative musicians assembled today. They compose using influences that range from Bach to Radiohead. (On top of that, I think they have the coolest band name in the history of probably ever.)
