Here are some mid-week links. Links are getting a bit hard to come by, but we have scoured all corners of the internet and found some interesting ones for today.

Our Conference Expansion Off-season Project: MAC edition.

We wrapped up our fun project a few days ago. Read what James put together in his re-imagined MAC, plus his explanations. The MWC version is dropping in a few hours. You won’t be disappointed.

Nevada hoops building a dream roster.

Seriously. Take a look at this roster and be amazed. If any of the 3 early-draft entrees come back, this could truly be a special team.

Special distribution money for D1 athletes.

Two years ago, the NCAA approved a $200 million payout to D1 schools to provide flexibility in supporting athletes needs. Read a bit about how schools used this money.

On the horizon:

  • Come Wednesday: Pulling an audible. Was going to feature some kind of recruiting article, but we wrapped up the Conference Expansion Off-Season Project Monday evening. Much of it has occurred behind closed doors, but the new-look MWC will be revealed tomorrow.
  • Thursday: Casey and Mike jump over to OBNUG to discuss the OL recruits in the Boise State 2014 class.
  • This week: Another MWC Roundtable: Which team will make the biggest improvement this football season?
