Air Force tops Mountain West, is top service academy in Learfield IMG College Director’s Cup Standings

Falcons are the best in the Mountain West for the 2020-2021 sports calendar year, according to the Learfield Cup. Impressive accomplishment considering the difficulties these cadet-athletes faced.

Latest Sports Illustrated mock draft has Carson Strong No. 1 overall

Choo chooooo the hype train continues. Unlike last year with Trevor Lawrence, there is no consensus #1 draft pick heading into this upcoming season. Nevada’s Carson Strong has as good a shout as anyone around. Strong and the Wolf Pack will have the opportunity to prove their worth, with road games @ California, @ Kansas State, and @ Boise State in the first five contests.

It looks pretty. Will it ever actually happen?

Meanwhile, back at Manoa...

Wyoming at the top, Air Force near the bottom. Only two teams nationally below 50%

Applause all around!
