Hello, my name is Jeremy, and this is another edition of, “Pretending like football will go on without a hitch.” Athlon posted their Mountain West predictions. Plenty of interesting nuggets. Boise State vs. Nevada in the conference championship? Read away.
Today in “did you know?”: Boise State doesn’t sell alcohol at sporting events. That’s set to change should a season of some sort occur this fall. I’m sure inebriation will not inhibit anyone’s ability to follow the rules.
I might seriously cry when the day comes that we can talk about college athletics without worrying about whether the games will actually happen. Unfortunately, that is not this day. If out-of-conference play is axed, what might that look like? Read above.
A surprising move, many expected Colombi to take over Jordan Love’s old spot. I’m guessing the addition of Jason Shelley played a role in this decision.
