Good morning everyone. Welcome to Monday. Let’s soften the blow by giving you some links from around the Mountain West.
Boise State softball coach headed to the sunshine state.
After guiding her team to the first ever NCAA tournament birth, Boise State will lose its head coach. Cindy Ball is leaving after four seasons to become the head softball coach at UCF. Since they don’t lose much roster-wise, they team should be just as competitive next season.
Most underrated players on each of the top 25 teams.
ESPN doing their version of off-season CFB content with this article. As Boise State is the only Mountain West Conference team currently in the top 25, that’s who is highlighted. For the Broncos, they list rising junior RB Alexander Mattison as the underrated player. After getting off to a slow start, he really came on strong, dominating at times. If he continues that development, the offense will be extremely balanced.
Boise State President works his final day.
After 15 years, Boise State President Bob Kustra has worked his last day. The 75 year-old guided the school and athletic program to new heights during his tenure. BSU decided to extend the search awhile back rather than choose from 3 underwhelming finalists.
