Making The Rounds: 5/18/2010

Air Force

The Lady Falcons are six weeks into a search for their new women's basketball coach. The expected target is Arizona State's associate head coach Meg Sanders.  Troy Calhoun brings on his ninth graduate assistant in former player Capt. John Rudzinksi, a 2005 graduate:

Rudzinski, who currently is working as a maintenance officer at Charleston Air Force Base in South Carolina, earned three letters at Air Force as a linebacker and was an honorable mention All-Mountain West Conference selection as a senior in 2004. He won the prestigious Brian Bullard Award - the highest honor an Air Force football player can achieve - and participated in the East-West Shrine Classic after his senior season.

Falcon baseball coach Mike Hutcheon was suspended by the Mountain West Conference for one game after his second ejection in two days:

The conference said Hutcheon was barred from coaching the Air Force-UNLV game Sunday in Las Vegas. He was ejected from games between the teams Friday and Saturday.

BYU

Former BYU running back looks to be staying a former BYU player.  There is no news on his readmission status, which is not good.  BYU's opponent Florida State is ranked in multiple preseason polls. Very early 2011 NFL Draft evaluation of BYU's Matt Reynolds:

Reynolds is a very strong character, high quality individual, with loads of talent.  He needs to go to a pass heavy team in the NFL.  A switch to the right side also wouldn’t be a surprise.

Colorado State

The Ram football team is going to be dedicated to getting better this summer:

The top programs allocate money to keep their scholarship players on campus over the summer, allowing them not only to work out with the strength and conditioning staff but also to utilize the weight room and training facilities, study film on their own and with teammates and take classes that will lighten their course load during the season. Athletic director Paul Kowalczyk has increased the money spent on summer-school scholarships, Fairchild said, but the Rams still can't afford to keep everybody around over the summer and remain at the bottom of the MWC in that area.

New Mexico

The Lobos year in review has highlighted by some controversy:

From Mike Locksley to Elizabeth Lambert, it was a year that brought just as much infamy to the University as illustriousness, all of it exacerbated by top University officials’ unwillingness to be forthcoming with information.

San Diego State

The Aztecs added Michigan to the 2011 schedule for a game at The Big House and will walk away with a cool million bucks.  Pitcher Bryan Crabb is in stable condition after getting hit in the head against BYU.

TCU

CB Jason Teague is one of Rivals under the radar players to watch:

TCU is known for its active and aggressive secondaries, and there actually is talk around the program that this season's group could be better than last season's. That puts the onus on Teague, a senior, to perform up to expectations in his final season on campus.

The latest regional projections are out for TCU baseball:

TCU hosting a Regional with quite the Southwest Conference flavor to it. Along with the Horned Frogs, they see the Fort Worth Regional also including #2 seed Rice, #3 seed A&M and #4 seed Centenary. Since all three of the visiting schools are within an easy drive of Fort Worth (Centenary is in Shreveport), that would make for some packed crowds at Lupton...and some very competitive baseball.

Utah

The Utes grab their 7th commit for 2011 in linebacker Jared Norris.  The Utes wrap up their baseball regular season against New Mexico.

UNLV

Local Vegas casino puts odds on Rebels wins for football with four:

"I think five wins would be a good year," Vaccaro said. "Six is a monster year. I think four is a fair number. These things play out tricky — (Hauck) will probably win one that he shouldn't and lose one that he shouldn't."
