Holmoe, as recorded by the Salt Lake Tribune:
Asked if BYU would accept a Big 12 invitation if one were extended, Holmoe declined to answer.
"I can't say that, because if you don't receive an invitation, it is hard to say, ‘what if.' You can't say. That's just speculation," Holmoe said.
BYU has made it clear that it likes the terms of its football independence, and certain special concessions may decrease the odds of the Cougars joining a conference. They've long been rumored to be in talks with the Big 12, but as far as I know this is the first instance of a Brigham Young official confirming those reports.
