The WAC gets Sacked

With a series of bold moves, the WAC (Western Athletic Conference) this week tried to lure BYU from the Mountain West Conference, tried to convince Boise State to stay in the WAC, and tried to leave the Mountain West for dead.  But the Mountain West was bigger and stronger.  It struck back, struck back quickly […]

It’s Christmas Eve in the valley.  No, not literally, but the time immediately before football season starts often feels like Christmas Eve to diehard fans.  As a child, I found Christmas Eve full of potential, full of excitement and anticipation.  Would I get that new electronic game I wanted?
