College Football Realignment: Fresno State and Nevada Newest Mountain West Conference Members

After a nice summer break from college football teams shifting conferences, the fall has brought more changes to the landscape, as Fresno State and Nevada announced they will leave the Western Athletic Conference and join the Mountain West Conference.fresno nevada mountain west

According to Pete Fiutak at “the two schools have solid football programs, have been bowl regulars over the past few years and add more meat to the Mountain West’s midsection that should raise the overall profile of the league.”

I’m not 100% on board with Fiutak’s statement.

52-21 to Arizona State in 2006
52-10 to Nebraska in 2007
35-19 to Texas Tech and 69-17 to Missouri in 2008
35-20 to Colorado State last year (not to mention a 35-0 whipping by Notre Dame.) Read the rest of this entry »

It was reminiscent of the 2005 draft, when four North Carolina Tar Heels were selected in the first 14 picks.

When I think about the group of Kentucky players, a thought creeps into my head: has the class designation lost all meaning in D-I college basketball? Read the rest of this entry »
