We’re taking a short break from football news in today’s Mountaintop View. The Mountain West basketball media days were held yesterday in Las Vegas. Check out the results of the various media polls below. Unsurprisingly, Nevada is featured heavily.

And one bit of football news as CSU running back hangs up his cleats
Sophomore running back Rashaad Boddie unexpectedly decided to leave the CSU football program this week. Boddie has served multiple suspensions during his short career, most recently at the beginning of this year. He played sparingly after returning from suspension and decided that football was no longer for him.
On the Horizon:
- Later today: Our latest round of Bowl Projections.
- Later today: A game day experience at Boise State (for real this time)
