Yesterday was signing day for college football. Typically in these MTV posts, I’m featuring articles, social media from publications that are not from the Mountain West Connection.

This is a quality read Jason Turner of The Herald Journal, detailing how new Utah State head football coach Blake Anderson intends to attack this job. Anderson says his teams will play even faster than the famed 2018 Utah State Aggies. That’ll take some doing!
