It’s hump day and a weekend full of games is coming. To get there a bit quicker, take a look at today’s links plus the content coming your way on our site.
Depth charts are normally big news in fall camp and don’t change much during the season. Unless injuries or ineffectiveness forces change, which is what has been happening at Colorado State. With the lack of winning, they are going younger. Freshmen are scattered throughout the depth chart, especially at wide receiver. There are many news names appearing since the fall camp version, as players have left the team and there have been injuries to positions such as the offensive line.
It may be the middle of football season but college basketball news will be trickling in as teams opened practice this week. Among the teams that Jon Rothstein says can overachieve this year is New Mexico. The post talks about their returning productive backcourt featuring Jaelen House and Jamal Mashburn Jr. They add an transfer who could be a difference-maker immediately with Morris Udeze and are being labeled as the Mountain West sleeper team this year.
Some familiar names on this list. The top is former Boise State coach Bryan Harsin and right behind him is current Boise State coach Andy Avalos. That seems pretty high for Avalos, although his seat is probably warm. No other Mountain West coach appears on this week’s version of the list, however.
