Mid-week links to get you through hump day. Opposite of yesterday where we brought you stories mostly revolving around the same theme, today’s batch of links is a little bit of everything going on in college sports.
You can bet on it.
In case you didn’t hear, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of sports gambling. This will completely change how betting is done and have even more money surrounding the sport. While some states will push this along quite soon, others may not join in for years, if ever.
You can bet Nevada will be leading the charge though.

Former Bronco Ajayi may be in some trouble.
According to TMZ, he is being sued for reportedly trashing a mansion in LA and shoving the owner. His representation is of course denying that story. Either way, not a great look for the former Boise State star and Super Bowl champ running back for the Eagles.
Aggies pick up a well-traveled grad-transfer.
Some readers may remember the name Jalen Greene. Some may not. He was a QB verbal commit to Boise State under old coach Chris Petersen. When Pete left to Washington, he convinced Greene to follow suit. However, USC came calling and Greene spurned Pete to commit and sign with the Trojans. He’s been there ever since, but was converted to WR and has had minimal production on the field. He was slated to grad-transfer to Illinois, but now it seems he will join Utah State for his final season. Though this will only be the second school he attends, Greene’s name has now been associated with 5 different programs.
