It’s Monday and we’re back after the weekend. The links keep pressing on, so check out the latest Mountain West and college sports-related news from around the web, plus the original content we have coming your way this week.

Nevada’s dream season comes to an abrupt ending.

The Wolf Pack high-powered offense was absent over two games, in which they were outscored 13-1, managing seven total hits over the two games. Needless to say, the pitching wasn’t great either. Still, it doesn’t take away from the successful season Nevada had this year.

Women are moving the line.

The NCAA rules committee has voted to approve moving the women’s three-point line back to the international line, starting this season. The distance will be 22 feet, 1¾ inches. The best part? It will be one less line on the court that creates confusion while watching. The difference will amount to less than an inch and a half longer of a shot.

Tony Sanchez resurfaces.

The former UNLV (and Bishop Gorman) head coach has finally resurfaced since being let go by the Rebels. Outside of a rumor linking him to being interested in the Boise State RB coach opening last year, there hasn’t been much chatter about Sanchez. However, he has emerged as an offensive analyst for TCU, which is position schools like Alabama have used for rehabbing fired head coaches to great mutual success.

Two new assistant directors of championships.
