Re: If MWC allows OOC...

I strongly agree that BYU made their bed by leaving the conference a decade ago and they can now lie in it.

That said, Burman already caved to BYU by scheduling them in future years and, if we have a season, it is very likely that he would accommodate BYU this year as well.

Re: Bad News Coming Our Way

Since the MLB model has failed thus far, I continue to not have a good feeling about UW football this fall. I actually think the MLB model has shown that it is possible. Miami is sick...so they are out for a week and MLB just changes the schedule. I can see it now - - can't play New Mexico this wee...

Re: Bad News Coming Our Way

That is bad news. I have not heard this yet but it wouldn't shock me because the majority of faculty members were already forced to move their classes online (i.e.the classrooms were measured with a 6 foot space between students and the average classroom held only between 8-10 students).

Re: Any predictions on the season happening?

I'm probably in the small minority but I think Wyoming plays some football games this fall. The schedule could look something like this: New Mexico State @ Colorado State New Mexico @Boise State @ New Mexico Sate Colorado State Boise State @ New Mexico ('MWC Championship game') I see it this way: 'M...

Re: Cowboy Wrestling Signees and Commits

Stanford had a pretty good recruiting class; Wyoming should take a close look at Stanford's roster.

Sucks that wrestling programs are being gutted.

Re: Vic Koenning on Administrative Leave

Some people never worked road construction, oil field, or other real job and it shows. I'll leave it at that. I'll agree that the world we live is way too sensitive in many ways. But I think it is fair to hold one of the highest paid members of a University to a different standard than a roughneck ...

This will be interesting to watch. On one hand, they have a fan base who probably very much agree with Gundy's endorsement of the president and oan.

Re: Assuming football is played in its entirety...

2.5 to 3

A lot of change with the defensive staff and personnel will probably lead to a step back on defense. Two very intriguing quarterbacks and a more experienced offense will lead to more points. I see a good 2016 potential type season.

Re: OT: Could 2020 just end now!!!!!!

Serious question, are all stay at home orders now defunct in states allowing mass protests? How can they they charge churches for example but ignore the protests? Yes, they are allowing mass gatherings and peaceful protests. I'd argue they are allowing violent protests but that is another debate. T...
