The Morning Hike: July 23, 2014, wrapping up Day 1 of MWC Media Days

Thankfully, I slept great at the campsite, and no bears or raccoons got into our food. Everything's coming up Mountain West!


For most, conference media days is a sign that we're almost to the beginning of fall camp, and that means College Football season is getting closer. On Tuesday, the Mountain West kicked off their annual media days at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas with members of the Mountain division taking the spotlight on Day 1. Here's some of the highlights from each team:

Non-Media Day News

Former Fresno State QB Derek Carr and current Boise State track/cross country runner Emma Bates named MWC Male and Female Athlete of the Year, respectively

Carr shattered records on the field while at Fresno, and will hope to translate that success with him to the Oakland Raiders. Bates took home the 10,000 meter national championship at the beginning of the summer, running the second fastest time in the history of the championship meet at 32:32.

Harsin conceding offensive playcalling to Offensive Coordinator, Mike Sanford.

It's different, but if done right, Boise's offense will be interesting to watch in 2014.

Former Baylor star Isaiah Austin has NBA job waiting for him after he graduates

Yes, it's not MWC related, but it's one of the feel-good stories of the summer and you can't help but applaud the job Adam Silver has done in power for the NBA.
