WRU, saving sports?, Rebels in Maui, Virtual media days, MWC top 10

NCAA Football: Boise State at Colorado State Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

It’s FINALLY Friday. The news and updates keep going though, so take a look at what we have for you today.

A look at WRU

Justin Michael, one of the stronger voices in Colorado State athletics, dives deep into Colorado State’s history at developing productive and NFL bound wide receivers. From Higgins to Gallup to Johnson and now Warren Jackson and Dante Wright, the position has been stocked. Their history can even go back further for you long-time fans.

Strong efforts to save cut sports.

Last Friday we included the sad announcement made by Boise State about the discontinuation of their baseball team as well as swimming and diving program. Since then, the community has been active on social media pledging their support and money to save the programs. The athletic department is doubtful, questioning the sustainability of the public supported programs. But this story doesn’t seem over yet.
