It’s Monday and we are back at it! March Madness is upon us, even if the four Mountain West teams took an early tumble. Football news is always plentiful even in the off-season. Through it all, coverage is still coming your way today in the form of the latest news around the internet and original content later today and all of this week.
WRU Back in Fort Collins?
It’s fun being a wide receiver in an air-raid offense. And even before Coach Norvell came on the scene, CSU had a great reputation of developing WRs. With Michael Gallup, Rashard Higgins, Bisi Johnson, Preston Williams and Warren Jackson all on NFL teams, fans have grown used to see big production out of their receivers. And things should return to that level thanks to a pass-happy offense.
Can Wyoming continue to develop?
Craig Bohl and the Cowboys have long made their mark on their ability to develop players over the course of their college career. But can that continue in the transfer portal era? Logan Wilson, the former Wyoming star, thinks it very well could be. He says adapting with the times are necessary. Wyoming had 16 players in the NFL last year (tops in the MWC), but lost many players to the transfer portal. We will see what happens.
Cobbs ready to take on WR mantle for Broncos.
Stefan Cobbs enjoyed a breakout season last year and now will look to step into the role of #1 wide receiver for Boise State, He is motivated most by his family, setting an example for his younger siblings and making his parents proud. Cobbs is part of an athletic family who pushes each other and supports one another in being the best they can. All the boys wear #5 to honor their dad’s playing career. Cobbs is used to be the one others look up to and now will do so at Boise State.
Boise State is making an upgrade.
