Re: Wells Fired at TT

It seems the fanbase didn't like Wells as the hire in the first place. I don't think he regrets going, though, especially with as fickle as our fanbase can be, too. There were absolutely no guarantees about how things would have gone for him had he stayed.

Re: Mountain West Bowl Eligibility

My bowl preferences probably have more to do with which bowls I'd be most likely to be able to attend: New Mexico - Saturday, long but doable drive or a pretty short flight Arizona - NY Eve, I have it off, not too far, really enjoyed it in 2017 (aside from final score) LA - Same as NM, but probably ...

My prediction for the game last week overshot most of the actual numbers. I undershot on UNLV's rushing yards, but was pretty close on their score.

Indeed. I always thought it was interesting that Boise and we play opposite cross-division schedules. We never play the same Western teams. I think they should just reshuffle after every four year cycle.
