Nearly a week after Todd Graham stepped down as Hawaii’s football coach, momentum has skyrocketed in June Jones’ favor to take over his old job after he publicly declared his candidacy. Dave Reardon thinks the choice is simple. Read above.
You’ll need a subscription to ESPN+ to read Mel Kiper’s first round mock draft, but I’ll spoil the Mountain West related picks: he has San Diego State defensive end Cameron Thomas being picked by the Kansas City Chiefs, and Colorado State tight end Trey McBride being picked by the Green Bay Packers. Two MWC footballers in round 1!

Was your team fun this past fall? Air Force certainly was
Mid season I did a not very serious "fun index" which just combines stats I think make for interesting viewing (Explosive plays, good offense, good QB play). Turns out it has a strong correlation to wins. Moving right = more fun, moving up = more winning #CFB #CollegeFootball pic.twitter.com/fDm08g6Fxm— CFBNumbers (@CFBNumbers) January 18, 2022
