Another day, another round of links. Enjoy what we have for you today from around the conference and the college sports world in general.

Also, the NFL draft is getting closer and closer.

Lapuaho seeks a rebuilding challenge.

Al Lapuaho could have stayed at Utah State, the defending conference champion, and it would have made sense. Instead, he took the road less traveled, wanting to challenge himself and step outside his comfort zone with a new opportunity. Lapuaho liked helping to rebuild things at Utah State and now wants to rebuild things at Nevada.

Linder looking to stick around.

As long as the resources and support continue in Laramie, then so will Jeff Linder. At least, that’s what he said. And that is a very good thing for the men’s basketball program. He states he has seen Mark Few and Gonzaga as an example of what it can look like when there is consistency and commitment at a mid-major for both the school and the coach.

2023 Bracketology.

Because why not? It’s the offseason and there isn’t much better to write about outside of NFL pre-draft articles. Anyway, three Mountain West teams are in the field. Wyoming (a 10-seed) is among the last four byes, and given the transfers they have taken in, they figure to be a strong team. Colorado State is a 9-seed and San Diego State is the highest as an 8-seed. Hopefully someone can win a tournament game next year.

Runnin’ Rebels make a coaching hire.
