Finally Friday yet again. This week has brought a good amount of MWC news to us. If you follow recruiting, you know this was a huge week for the Mountain West in that department. We will have interviews with new commits for you on Monday. Until then, enjoy...
Earlier this week, the MWC announced that the Air Force Reserves as a title sponsor of both the men’s and women’s basketball championships. They will also serve as a presenter sponsor of the other 10 championships. It sounds like they will also have a role in the football championship game.
This is assuming that every single team meets their expectations. The odds of that happenings aren’t very good, in case you were wondering. But assuming we could simulate the season, they have Boise State in Fiesta Bowl against Penn State. Also, San Diego State would go to the Vegas Bowl to play Washington State. They also include the full bowl list if you want to search for your favorite team.
The popular Netflix show is back for another year, but this year it will feature a new school. This season will follow Independence C.C. through the ups and downs of their season. Actually, two Mountain West players were on the team last season. One is new Utah State Aggie DB DJ Williams and another is preferred walk-on Boise State QB Brandon Bea. Make sure to look for them when you lost.
As was decided last week, the NCAA rules that players no longer need to get permission from their head coach to seek a transfer to another school. Of course, some coaches were not in favor of this and most likely sought to do something to balance the power. That came Tuesday when the Power 5 conferences announced that if a player transfers, they are not guaranteed their scholarship past the end of that semester. Previously, they could stay until they found another school.
