Welcome to the mid-week links and the first of the post season.

Even though it’s post-season, there are some bowls for prospects on the horizon that include now former Mountain West players.

The Rams have great representation, with 6 players over 4 games. Gallup is the biggest prospect, but Stevens or some of the others could use these games to get on the radar of some teams in order to leverage it into a late round pick or an UDFA.

The grad-transfer QB was the biggest surprise for the Broncos this past season and he gets another opportunity to show off his skills in the Tropical Bowl. His former teammate, WR Cedric Wilson, will put his skills on display in the Senior Bowl.

Changes are coming... but not for an entire year or two.

The most notable will be that in 2020, the men’s and women’s conference basketball tournaments will be moved up a week or so in order to not interfere with the International Construction Trade Show, which will also be in Vegas. This change will force conference play to start before Christmas. Will it have an impact on the non-conference slate or will teams be playing a more condensed schedule? Stay tuned.

New ideas or proposals for the future of college football.

Check out the coverage by Chris Vannini (@ChrisVannini), who cover college football for The Athletic (specifically the Group of 5, so he’s worth a follow). There are a whole list of tweets worth looking at on the matter, but this is one of the more intriguing ones:

This is just a discussion point and not an actual proposal. But this one is:

What other MWC players will be participating in bowl games?

What do you think about the ideas and proposals being discussed?

Will you be buying your tickets to the International Construction Trade Show?
