Re: Embarrassed to be a Cowboy, we need someone like Scott Frost at UW

I think the MWC jumped the gun on cancelling all fall sports. I would have waited and reacted to whatever the Pee5 decided to do. If I were Wyoming, I would have pushed for even a limited season...something like home and homes with AFA, Csewe, USU...and anyone else out there that wants to play H&H....

Re: PAC 12 player demands

If a person doesn't like the NCAA they are free not to take part in NCAA athletics. I don't get it. It is what it is. Take it or leave it. I'm of the same mindset but the current landscape of college football is far more complex than to think it's that simple. The NFL should be FORCED somehow to in...

Re: Bad News Coming Our Way

Once a D1 conference announces they have canceled the season the dominoes will fall. I didn't think we would see a fall 2020 football season and even moving it to spring is too optimistic. Push everything back to 2021 and grant another year of eligibility, hopefully by then we can return to a normal...

Re: 2018 Cowboy Football Recruiting

I'd really like to see more Play Action and bootlegs off our running game. Take a page out of the Tennessee Titans playbook - they worked it to perfection throughout the playoffs. I kept thinking that could be us! Granted, Derick Henry is a beast. But I do hope to see more "rhythm" with Wyo's offens...

Re: Season Ticket Holders

It does suck and definitely won't feel like a college football atmosphere. But having Football is better th...

Former Wyoming head coach Pat Dye

Passed away today. Obviously didn't leave a great impression when he left Wyoming for Auburn saying "all they care about is rodeo and not football" in Wyoming.

Re: Wyoming Adds Cal Poly to 2024 Football Schedule

I would have to agree with the 2015 team being the worst Wyo team in the "modern" era. Vic coached in a much tougher MWC and brutal OOC games.

Bohl has had the advantage of competing in a weaker MWC and a balanced OOC schedule

Re: Will there be football this fall?

I doubt we see any Football or sports until 2021. Which sucks.. I need some sports in my life! I'd even take Auto Racing or Golf as these would be the best "social distancing" sports that probably could continue.

Re: Edwards Dismissed

I can tell you one thing, if I were king for a day, I would let Burman know his job is on the line and if he swings and misses with this hire, he is gone, gone, gone. Burman has been able to hire more Head coaches than many AD's combined. So I doubt his job is on the line. Burman has put himself in...

A good university president understands that athletics (specifically football & basketball) are the front porch of the university. Let's hope he understands that.

Re: 2020 schedule

I think it's because of the new TV deal, those negotiations took some time which in turn caused the delay in getting the conference schedule completed. Also the change from Learfield to JMI could be one of the issues as well.

Re: Clemson Owes Wyoming $1.1 Million For Backing Out of 2021 Game

To be the best you gotta play the best! Although a long shot to win I still would have loved to see this game happen. Burman has done a great job with scheduling, we have to give him credit for that. Mizzou, Texas, Utah. Wyo will still get some opportunities to play and hopefully win against quality...

Umm, I am sure they are getting rid of them because they got new equipment. Additionally - weight training science has changed tremendously in the past 20 years where 100 pound plus dumbbells are being phased out.

Re: Something to think about

I don't think Bohl even considers CU. It would not be a cultural fit for him. His style also does not fit a PAC school.

Mich St would have been a much better fit for a guy like Bohl.

Re: Chau Smith commits to be a Cowboy

Didn't have a good feeling about him staying committed and that confirms it. Was keeping my fingers crossed but losing our DC and other defensive staff didn't help.
