Aggie un-spring game, Wyoming WRs, Nevada’s offense, MBB transfers, Softball POTW

NCAA Football: First Responder Bowl-Memphis at Utah State Chris Jones-USA TODAY Sports

Even though it’s the “off-season,” there is still a lot going on. Spring practices are wrapping up, there are updates happening with the transfer portal (basketball and football), and the NFL draft begins tomorrow. Through it all, we have you covered. Take a look at today’s links, plus the content coming your way on our site.

Aggies un-spring game.

Utah State did not have a spring game this past Saturday, instead turning it into a Spring Showcase, where fans could see their final practice until fall camp. It ended on a high note for the offense as they succeeded in many of the red zone situations. Tight end Will Monney has been a bright spot, especially for an early enrollee true freshman. The hope is that the Aggie offense can return to being versatile and dynamic with Coach Blake Anderson calling the plays. The defense has seen a lot of attrition but still has veteran playmakers at every level.

Cowboy receivers need to put up or shut up.

The passing game has long been non-existent in the Wyoming offense. It’s time for that to change. The goal is once again to make the offense more balance and in order to do that, some receivers need to emerge as viable weapons. They lost their best receiver from last year (again), but a few candidates could step up, including Alex Brown and Wyatt Wieland. Plus, there are some true and redshirt freshmen looking to crack the depth chart.

Should Nevada fans be concerned about their offense?

In this week’s edition of Chris Murray’s mailbag, he addresses the Wolf Pack’s offense from the spring game. He thinks the biggest offensive concern is the OL and how the running game struggled to run between the tackles. He expects them to average over 20 points per game this season but otherwise thinks the improvements from the 2022 season will be marginal. Also, no QBs were able to standout in the game. On the other hand, he thinks the defense will be respectfully average.
