Finally made it to Friday. Here is some lunch-time reading (or morning reading, or 4:30pm reading) to get you through the day. Today we have quite a bit of spring football updates and previews.

Get to know new Hawaii DC.

Defensive Coordinator Corey Batton is tasked with turning around a Warrior defense that wasn’t very bad last season. Here is a quick Q&A to learn a bit more about him as a person away from the coaching profession.

Boise State season preview from the Athletic.

This examines how the Broncos, who appear to be one of if not the top Group of 5 team heading into next fall, can keep from being complacent coming off a MWC championship and Vegas Bowl title. A very in-depth look here in the Athletic’s series on the Power 5 and Top Group of 5 teams.

Nevada looks to improve their defense behind emerging leader.

Another Korey in our links, this one with a K, is being counted on to lead the Wolf Pack to a better defensive showing than they had last year in their new 3-3-5 scheme under Coach Norvell. Korey Rush should anchor the D-line come the fall.

Wyoming has quite a few position battles going on during spring practices.

The Cowboys have tight battles going on at offensive line, running back, in the secondary, and of course, at quarterback. They don’t have many chances left before the end of spring ball to evaluate players, so every snap now is crucial.

Boise State MBB will be heading to the islands to start the season.
