NCAA Football: Idaho Potato Bowl-Ohio vs Nevada Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Friday and we have a fresh set of links and quite a few posts coming to you in order to kickstart your weekend. Check it out below.

Rebels and Raiders developing a coaching academy.

More specifically an academy designed specifically to develop minority coaches, general managers, and presidents. This move is on the forefront of a profession that has an incredible gap between white and non-white in leadership or top positions. The Athletic goes into great detail about hows and whys of this endeavor. Good for the teams in Las Vegas.

Cowboys plan to play both quarterbacks.

The starter battle between Sean Chambers and Levi Williams presses on, and will continue to do so even once the season starts. Given Levi’s pure passing ability and Sean’s playmaking ability with his legs, there does seem to be room for both of their skill sets to be utilized in the offense. Regardless, accuracy has been a big focus for both of then from head coach Craig Bohl, and for good reason.

Will Carson Strong reach his potential?

Sophomore quarterback Carson Strong emerged as the starter last year in a revolving QB door, despite injury and ineffectiveness. This year, the question will be if Strong can capitalize on the potential that made Nevada recruit him in the first place. The answer is hopefully yes, as the depth chart behind him is a mixed bag. It’s a veteran offense around Carson, which will hopefully be beneficial.

The Las Vegas Invitational has been cancelled.
