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.

Decentralizing college sports.

Mark Emmert, the leader of the NCAA, said now is the time is right to decentralize and deregulate college sports.

Ranking all FBS Quarterbacks.

Where do the MWC QBs rank? The lowest is at 114. The highest is at 7, with the other 10 scattered in between. Check out the entire list.

Broncos Fiesta Bowl Contenders?

The short answer: maybe. Coaching change history is on their side and their schedule is set up to look strong, if they can win (which is the big question). The talent is there but there is a lot to clean up from last season, starting with health and execution. Time will tell.

Spartan’s pass rush is elite.

Cordeiro signs a NIL deal.
