Nevada basketball is having one of those seasons where they look like they could be a cinderella in March Madness. But do they have the steam to keep going and make that … Continue reading Can the Nevada Wolfpack Keep Up Its Hot Start?
Bowl season is almost here everyone, you know what that means, bowl projections. Everyone loves looking at tie-ins and choosing what four-win teams are capable of winning out to just sneak into a bowl. No? Only me? Ok then. I think this is a given at this point, but UCF is the Forgotten 5's representative … Continue reading The Forgotten 5 Are Going Bowling – Here’s Where I Think They’ll Go; Yeah, I Predicted Power 5 Too Because Whatever

BYU @ Utah State - BYU -2.5 I still have no idea why BYU is favored in this game. Tanner Mangum is out, and the Cougs have barely a heartbeat. In the meantime, Utah State is coming off a huge conference win where the offense was firing on all cylinders. Aggies if you lose this … Continue reading A Preview of Week 5’s MWC Action
Hail, Monty! Or at least that's what the rest of the MWC should be saying. The Aztecs under Rocky Long have become the standard-bearer in the Mountain West for the past couple years, but this year especially at the expense of a bad Arizona State team and a severely overrated Stanford. That's two quality wins … Continue reading MWC Roundup Week 3: The “Why Me?” hangover hits

So beefy! As usual, we're concerned not … Continue reading The Forgotten adds serious beef to The Outland and Nagurski watch lists!
Admittedly, that headline is a little misleading. We all know that these postseason awards are mostly meant to high-five the most privileged of the game. But this is Watch List Season, baby! Just seeing a MAC or Sun Belt name sprinkled with the denizens of the establishment is reward enough, right? Right? No? Anyway, two more … Continue reading Rimington and Mackey Watch Lists are out: The Forgotten continue to rule
In a matchup of the regular season finale, the Nevada Wolf Pack again took care of business versus a depleted Colorado State squad in winning the MWC title 79-71 in Las Vegas.
