FINALLY Friday. Get your weekend started a bit early with the links we are rolling out this morning.

Mountain West football is back!

NCAA recommends waiving bowl requirements.

Get ready for another NCAA recommendation. Yes the governing body that doesn’t make rules, just recommendations. This one is getting rid of the number of wins a team needs to have to be bowl eligible. However, the still have to be selected, and still have to meet APR requirements. But in theory, a winless team could make a bowl.

NIL bill proposed by congressmen.

Who says both sides can’t come together? a bi-partisan bill has been introduced by two members of Congress. If passed, it would allow for college athletes to profit off of their image and likeness. Stay tuned.
