…at least that's what my dad thinks.
Whether you know me personally or just follow this blog, you know that my dad, the Big KO, is my brother-in-arms when it comes to BYU sports.
We have daily BYU pow-wows where we discuss the latest and greatest from our Alma Mater.
So I wasn't surprised when Tom Holmoe's recent comments to the press came up in our conversation. Both of us were intrigued by Holmoe's statements, but my dad has adopted an especially extreme interpretation. He explained his feelings to me just tonight.
"You just wait," he said. "BYU is going to make a big announcement by August 15."
I inquired, "What's that?"
His response: BYU will be invited to the Big XII. He said it with such unflinching conviction that I had to ask who gave him his information.
He told me he didn't have a source. It was a gut feeling.
Now, it's no secret that I don't believe any of this Big XII hoo-ha. BYU just has too much baggage. Nevertheless, KO was unshaken in his confidence.
He was so confident, in fact, that we made a bet. I bet that come August 15 BYU would be where it is right now: Languishing away as a mid-major in the BCS. My dad bet that by August 15 we would have an invitation in-hand to join the Big XII. Winner gets a nice dinner at Mendy's… or another restaurant of his choice.
So what do you guys think? Who's going to win the bet?
