NCAA Football: Nevada at Colorado State Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Nevada coaching candidates.

Chris Murray outlines 25 names for the new Nevada coach. Among the highlights: Matt Wells, Tom Herman, Jay Hill, Brent Vigen, Jeff Chote, Graham Harrell, and Tim DeRuyter. Read the link for some funny possibilities too under the Wildcards section.

Norvell hire a success for Rams.

Colorado State is in need of new life in their offense and Jay Norvell should be the perfect person for that with his use of the air-raid scheme. In his preference, he stated a goal is for CSU to return to “Wide Receiver U”. He cited a big reason for coming to the Rams was for resources. His salary will nearly triple with his new job.

NCAA releases a draft of the new constitution.

The new rules and governing of the NCAA is coming, eventually. Here is the latest draft they sent out. Highlights include broader NIL language, reimagining the NCAA President’s role, promoting diversity, and the big one: clarifying each division must determine how multidivisional sport classification should be managed (aka a move toward autonomy).

Bowl Success.
