The college football season is officially over but that doesn’t mean the coverage stops. There is going to be a lot of coaching change talk and it the newest news is Nick Rolovich leaving Hawaii. This edition also features a new AP basketball poll and final AP football poll as well as a new player of the week.
The final AP poll of the college football season has two MW teams ranked with Air Force at #22 and Boise State at #23.
Another week another poll, this edition features The Aztecs standing firm at number 7 as they continue to roll on the court. Unfortunately SDSU is the only MW team receiving votes.
Carlton Bragg Jr, who had just recently been reinstated following a suspension, was arrested for driving while intoxicated and in the possession of marijuana. His arrest has prompted his removal from New Mexico’s roster. Bragg has been one of the Lobos top performers this season averaging 12.6 PPG and 10.3 RPG. Coach Paul Weir says he hopes Bragg is able to take some time to focus on his personal well being and that he will continue to support him.
A late night news break, Nick Rolovich, who led Hawaii to the MWC championship game this season, will be taking the HC job at Washington State. Rolovich is in the process of finalizing a 5 year deal worth around $3 million a season. Former WSU head coach Mike Leach left for Mississippi State and the Wazzu position opened up and WSU has chosen Rolovich to lead the Cougars going forward.
