Call it the final BYU football media day of independence on Wednesday at the Broadcast Building on the Provo campus.
Barring any unanticipated changes, the next time Kalani Sitake and his boss Tom Holmoe get involved in such a preseason affair, it will be conducted by the Big 12 Conference, likely in Dallas, and won’t be in June but in July when other leagues sponsor this preseason ritual.
So, what can we look for when Kalani’s staff and players join Holmoe and a gaggle of reporters to preview, review and dissect the program heading into the 2022 opener against South Florida on Sept. 3?
Well, here’s a stab at some storylines to look for.
Here is the @nyjets QB1’s pitch to recruits to play at BYU.

Holmoe usually provides some little nugget in his state of the program comments. Oftentimes it is a scheduling tidbit, a television deal, a tweak in some facility upgrade, or new brick and mortar project, stadium enhancement or coaching contract adjustment.
I’d hope that Holme and Sitake address some of the challenges of the NIL fire that is blazing across the college sports scene. It would also be interesting to get their take on the ravages of the transfer portal and how it giveth and taketh.
Obviously, of most interest, is the impending move to the Big 12 and the intricacies of making that jump.
Holmoe and Sitake are already budgeting projected additional revenue from that move to the Power Five league and are counting on making additional changes to compete. What are those changes? Most likely they involve compensation, staff expansion, support faculty, and beefed-up recruiting resources on and off-campus. Don’t look for the decadence of more private jet usage just yet.
In taking the high road, Kalani Sitake has the Cougars right where he wants them
