Making the Rounds: The Final Preperations are Being Made

MWC

Out with the Big East and in with the Mountain West for a BCS berth. Top things to watch for in the MWC this season and predictions.

Air Force

Back ups are looking good and Sean Quintana had to gain weight to move from wide receiver to tight end this summer.

BYU

Max Hall is moving on from last years end of season failures, but hope the injury laden offensive line can hold together.  The new receivers need to prove their worth.  Final scrimmage is sloppy for the Cougs. Game planning for Oklahoma begins.

Colorado State

Quarterbacks Grant Stucker and Jon Eastman finally stepped it up and there is a three man battle for the starting tight end spot. Underclassmen will play a big key for the Rams success in 2009. Coach Fairchild is looking for a more uptempo offense this year.

New Mexico

The quarterback battle for the Lobos is not between the starter, but is for the backup spot. The game against Texas Tech is being pickd up by Fox Sports.

TCU

Three or four walk-ons and star freshman running back Ed Wesley have the swine flu. Receiver Jeremy Kerley is a jack of all trades, and is a headache for opposing defenses.  Injuries to the secondary are forcing receiver Tyler Luttrell to swich to the defensive back field.

San Diego State

Dey Juan Hemmings looks to be a beast at safety.  Brady Hoke is getting positive reviews from his first recruiting class.

UNLV

Defensive end Preston Brooks should be good to go for the opener after sustaining a knee injury.  Summer helped freshman receivers get a head start.

Utah

The Quarterback announcement may not be announced until September 3rd, well unless you believe me.   The offensive line shuffles because of injuries.

Wyoming

The Pokes had their final scrimmage and the starters from both sides of the ball played extremely well, and the wide outs stepped it up and had a drastic improvement from the amount of drops.
