Making the Rounds: 11/19/09

MWC News: A potential Mountain West champ vs. WAC champ game on championship weekend?  I think that is a terrible idea neither league benefits from that.  So is a Western Football Classic featuring the champs from the Pac-10, MWC, WAC, then an at large.  No need to bang out a monster piece on the pros and cons of either but this benefits no one but the winner in a MWC/WAC game, and does nothing for the Pac-10.  Bill Hancock named first full time BCS executive director, so what does that mean for the MWC.

Air Force

Being overlooked is that this could be one of the best football seasons in Air Force Falcon history within the turnover margin.  Do the Falcons play dirty, BYU thinks so?

BYU

The 2010 football recruiting class is gaining post season awards and the savior Jake Heaps tossed seven TD's in the opening round of the Washington state high school playoffs.  Air Force columnist calls out BYU in big games this year.

New Mexico

Head Coach Mike Locksley has turned to Tony Dungy for assistance as a mentor.  QB Donovan Porterie said the team had plenty of chances to beat BYU.

San Diego State

The football teams graduation rate is slipping.  AD Jeff Schemmel resigns for trying to get reimbursed by the school for an affair he was having.

TCU

Head Coach Gary Patterson will not politic for a spot in the BCS title game.  Give TCU more respect!  How does TCU  stack up against the Florida Gators.

UNLV

Not many people are surprised with the Mike Sanford firing.   The replacements for Sanford is a large number.  Runnin' Rebels come from behind to defeat rival Nevada-Reno in hoops.  Dennis Franchione is also being considered for the UNLV job.  This would be his third MWC school as he coached at New Mexico and TCU at those jobs he did a very good job.

Utah

What Ute team will show up against San Diego State on Saturday.  How will the Utes respond after their first conference loss in over a year.

Wyoming

Defense is getting a new look for the TCU game, also this game gives the Pokes a great chance for an upset.
