Hump day is behind us, meaning two things: 1. the weekend is near and 2. college football is back on our televisions tonight. Here are some links to soak up the time.
Chris Murray is now with Nevada Sports Net, and penned this heartbreaking story about Nevada cornerback Berdale Robins, who has persevered through the death of his half-brother. Robins made a game-changing play vs. Oregon State in the Wolf Pack’s 37-35 win over the Pac-12 foe. Robins received a game ball after the contest for his performance.
Hawaii has returned home from their long trip to the East Coast to prepare for FCS foe Duquesne in their homecoming game (Yes, homecoming is apparently coming earlier than usual for UH this fall). At halftime of the game, Hawaii’s most famous team, the 2007 Hawaii Warriors, will be enshrined into the UH Sports Circle of Honor. It’s an easy decision by the athletic department. That UH team propelled Hawaii to heights most thought not possible for the cash-strapped program. To date, Hawaii remains the only non-Boise State active Mountain West program that has played in a major bowl game since the beginning of the BCS era.
The Rams are off to a rough start in 2018. Things were looking up last week when the Rams defeated SEC foe Arkansas, but a blowout loss to Florida combined with Arkansas getting trounced at home by North Texas have put a damper on any slight positivity. Rams beat writer Kelly Lyell highlights things the Rams need to improve on if they want to avoid a bowl-less 2018 campaign.
Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun is pumping the brakes. Running back Kade Remsburg has rocketed to the top of the depth chart for the Falcons, but Calhoun doesn’t believe Remsburg needs to be Gale Sayers for the Falcons to be successful. Remsburg and Sayers are both from the state of Kansas, in case you missed on that reference. The Falcons take on Utah State in Logan this week. An upset win there would go a long way to turning things around for the Falcons.
