The latest in our podcast previews of the 2013 Mountain West football season brings us to the Colorado St. Rams. For this show we bring on Rich Kurtzman who covers Colorado State for Examiner.com. The show goes into Jim McElwain's second season as a head coach and what to expect in changes he has made to the program heading into his second season.
With the quarterback situation up in the air there is talk over if it will be Garrett Grayson or Conner Smith. This position could come down to what player has more leadership. The running game -- which I have been critical of in the past -- is discussed with some optimism for who Colorado State has in Chris Nwoke, Donnell Alexander and Kapri Bibbs.
Overall, Colorado State is still in rebuilding mode and while they should improve from 2012 to 2013 the team is not yet ready to compete with the best of the Mountain West.
