Realignment rumors.

You may have seen the story from SI earlier in the week about Boise State, Colorado State, and SDSU possibly joining the AAC in the near future. Matt Brown wrote a counter-article to that articulating what myself and others were thinking: Yes this all makes sense but there is no proof these talks are happening, let alone that a move is imminent. For now, consider it fun offseason speculation. Here’s the key paragraph:

A partnership to benefit college athletes announced.

With NLI bills set to go live a month from now, we have the first potential big way student-athletes can benefit from their name, image, and likeness. Today, Twitter and Opendorse announced a partnership that would allow athletes to give a portion of ad revenue that would be generated from videos and other content they publish on Twitter. The article says this will be kind of a middle-person platform, where companies like Nike can pitch a commercial idea and college payers can opt-in to participating through Opendorse and then the video clips would be posted on Twitter.

Baseball All-MWC Team.

MWC Baseball awards and accolades.
