Another day, another set of links:

A look at the new 10th coaching position for college football.

The rule that allows another full-time assistant went into effect this off-season. Here, the Athletic crunches the numbers, looking at where each position was hired from, what position the new coach is coaching, and a few stories at specific schools. Interestingly, Air Force is one of three schools who has yet to hire (or at least announce) their 10th hire.

Speaking of, here’s a great piece on Boise State’s new 10th assistant.

Spencer Danielson was also known as an intense and passionate player. Now he’s carrying that over as a coach. This chronicles his journey over the years, including an in-game blunder last fall. It also highlights why players gravitate towards him on the field and on the recruiting trail.

Are you going to start/keep betting on college football?

College football is great because anything can happen. It can also be frustrating because anything can happen. Betting on college football is tough because anything can happen. This explains why betting on college football is even riskier than normal better. May the odds be ever in your favor. (hint: they are definitely not in your favor)

Class of 2019 isn’t loaded with QBs...

It’s an interesting read regardless of the fact that it is lacking names of players who will likely end up in the MWC. It may explain how someone like Kedon Slovis goes from mainly MWC and some low PAC12 offers one week and then ends up committing to USC two weeks later. Boise State and Hank Backmeier get a small note, but the writer apparently doesn’t consider Georgia, Ole Miss, UCLA and Tennessee big offers.

On the horizon:

  • From yesterday: Bulldogs get a boost as Taylor is returning to school.
  • Later today: We’ve updated our post NFL draft tracker as players sign their contracts.
  • This week: another check-in with some 2019 MWC recruits.
