for an indy, new mexico state has a great sked. 8 in state games with the trip up the road to al-b-kurky, over to louisana for 1 and 3 dates in recruiting rich texas, socal & south florida.

I agree, NMSU did great on such short notice.

Honest question here, not bait – in their third year of independence how does BYU’s schedule stack up against Notre Dame? In terms of calibre of opponents, I realize BYU will always have a higher number of road games.

I think (of course) that ND has the overall better schedule but BYU’s isn’t bad at all. BYU has 6 home (Texas, Utah, MTSU, Ga Tech, Boise St, Idaho St)and 6 road games (Virginia, Utah St, Houston, Wisconsin, ND, Nevada) while ND has 6 home (Temple, Michigan St, Oklahoma, USC, Navy, BYU), 5 road (Michigan, Purdue, Air Force, Pittsburgh, Stanford), and 1 neutral site game (Arizona State)

The picture for independents is interesting now. There are three basically in the east, and three in the west. One in each region is a premier program, BYU and ND. The other four are lesser programs but more or less comparable to each other. I am not quite sure where I am going with this, but with the WAC probably permanently gone as an FBS conference, I wonder if it might be advantageous for some of these schools to land in conferences that are currently short on members.

I suppose I could answer my own question, Army and Navy to the Big East? Would Idaho and NM State join the Sun Belt Conference? I assume ND and BYU would stay independent?

Navy is already going to the Big East in 2015. Army prefers to stay Independent I believe.

Idaho and NM State could head to the Sun Belt. But that depends on any FCS teams the SBC may grab.

Navy sort of got the shaft with this whole Big East collapse. They built their program up from a perennial doormat to a regional powerhouse in the 2000s and figured they were claiming their rightful spot among the powerhouse teams in the East when they signed on to join the conference a while back. Within a year the Big East devolved from a BCS-caliber conference into something about on par with C-USA, at best. Navy thought they were going to get to duke it out with the likes of Rutgers, Syracuse, Pitt, and West Virginia; now they’ll be playing a boring and repetitive schedule against mid-majors they could have scheduled any time they wanted as an independent. Although their program has become a lot weaker since the mid-to-late 2000s, so it might end up being an appropriate if unexciting fit for them.
