Take a deep breath. We have arrived at another Friday. Get your weekend started a bit sooner with our collected links and original content coming your way today.

College Hoops Today previews the Mountain West.

This post is high on Nevada, Colorado State, and San Diego State for next season. They see Utah State falling off this year and to no surprise, San Jose State and Air Force are at the bottom. Fresno State is a sleeper and the All-MWC team is evenly spread with players from five teams. They really like UNLV’s transfers.

Spartans are the champion for the underdogs.

San Jose State endured so much for years before seeing the fruits of their labors, winning the Mountain West championship last season. They return a majority of starters on both sides of the ball and this was a program where the school voted to drop the sport in 2004 (spoiler: they didn’t). Now, can they compete with USC when they met on the field this September?

Rams are nearly fully vaccinated.

Wolf Pack a national “sleeper team”

Watchlists continue.
