BYU football media day is almost upon us, with the second annual iteration of the event set to take place Wednesday at the BYU Broadcast Building, just east of the Marriott Center.
The Tribune will be there, of course, and you can follow me on Twitter (@drewjay) for live updates from the proceedings.
By all accounts, this is the earliest a football media day has been conducted by conference or school in college football history; BYU's camp opens in about five weeks, around Aug. 1.
I don't think there will be much in the way of breaking news coming out of media day, but who knows? Last year, coach Bronco Mendenhall casually mentioned in the breakout session with us print reporters that he had signed a contract extension in January of 2011.
Perhaps there will be some future scheduling news.
According to my records, only eight opponents are known for the 2013 season: at Washington State; Texas, at Hawaii, at Utah State, Georgia Tech, at Houston, Boise State and at Notre Dame.
We are working on a project about the history, development and progress of BYU's offense since coach LaVell Edwards moved to a passing offense his second year, 1973. As part of that collection of stories, the Tribune's Kurt Kragthorpe will be ranking all the BYU quarterbacks over the past 40 seasons. Yes, every QB who took a snap in a game will be ranked.
Kurt says that reader input and opinion will be factored into his rankings, so if you want to weigh in on the matter, send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your top 10, top 25, or whatever you wish.
