Keeler: CSU Rams’ best conference realignment option? Follow (gasp!) San Diego State’s lead. Build biggest monster you can.
Mountain West commissioner Gloria Nevarez noted the other day that she is not naive when it comes to the prospect of MWC schools fishing for other opportunities. This writer thinks Colorado State should tag along with San Diego State in their failed (for now?) quest to create a best of the rest conference.
Look! Something other than realignment talk. Give this Casper Star-Tribune article on Wyoming nickelback Wrook Brown a read.

It’s going to be a hectic few weeks
Wazzu president Kirk Schulz to ESPN: "If we choose to rebuild a (Pac-12) conference around those four schools, is George (Kliavkoff) that guy? All of that then becomes a forefront issue instead of a secondary issue."— Brandon Marcello (@bmarcello) August 9, 2023
Let the negotiations begin...
Sources: ACC Presidents met tonight and the pursuit of Stanford and Cal for conference membership has “hit significant roadblocks.” There’d always been long odds because there wasn’t ever a significant value add.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) August 10, 2023
Unfortunate injury news
Wyoming RB Dawaiian McNeely left practice early today with an apparent knee injury, per Craig Bohl. He will undergo an immediate MRI. Bohl did not sound optimistic.— 7220sports (@7220sports) August 9, 2023
