BYU remains optimistic despite life as football independent

PROVO, Utah (AP) Life goes on as a football independent at BYU after the Big 12 decided against expansion in October.

Athletic director Tom Holmoe said there was no bitterness toward the conference after months of expansion talk and presentations from universities led to the league not accepting any new members. The school, however, still wants to join one of the Power 5 conferences.

"I was disappointed and frustrated for about two or three days, and then you have to just turn the page and move on," Holmoe said Wednesday, his first meeting with the media since the Big 12 announcement last fall. "It was frustrating because I thought that it was really close. I really believed that we had a great chance. I speak to the (athletic directors) in the conference and they're really matter-of-fact about the business part of it and the discussion and what they wanted. I get that.
