Neverending Mountain West region college football thread

Woohoo! What a game last night! BYU played very well. Surprisingly well on defense.

BYU, BSU and Utah all look very solid this year

I don't expect much, but I hope for some positives somewhere! Maybe above a .500 season?

GO BUFFS!

Well only losing by 18 at Utah, when in recent years a 40 point pounding at home was normal, has me somewhat hopeful for the Aggies under Gary Anderson. He's known as a great recruiter as well, so the effects of that won't be seen for another 1-2-3 years.

Congrats to BYU and BSU as well.

40 points is way beyond the normal spread. USU is going to get much better because of Gary Anderson. He learned a lot with Whit. He also is a motivator and someone who knows how to recruit!

2008, 2006, 2004 and 2003 were blowouts The rest of the decade was virutally an identical spread from the game last weekend.

Gary will make them competitive again.

Rams beat the Buffs.. Sorry Buff fans. New QB for CSU looks pretty tough. Nice win.

Huh does it say Mountain West CONFERENCE? No. We posted ALL Mountain West football teams here last year before you even were on this forum, so I'll let it slide. Huh Boise State isn't in the MWC either!

I'd resort to calling you an R-tard but I'll just assume your idiotic and brash personality is merely a disorder on your part which you have no control over. I hope for your sake that name calling isn't your knee jerk reaction for everyday chit-chat, let alone posting on a forum.

Indeed, the Buffs lose again. I'm getting real tired of the Hawkins duo. Sigh.

There is a high sense of urgency this year for results in Boulder, since it's been, what, seven years since the Buffs were even ranked!?! Yikes. It's even been an issue on some ESPN broadcasts that CU as a program has lost/is losing its way in the last decade.

I look forward to some of the other teams though. BYU, Boise, and Utah could do some great things this year. I loved watching the mighty SEC fall to the MWC last year. Too bad it didn't yield a National Championship bid, but that too may change in the coming years.

It says Mountain West football, not specifically Mountain West Conference.

Talking Pack piles on Skyhawks

For only their second year the Thunderwolvs are doing great!

So dominant was the Colorado State University-Pueblo football program Saturday night that its third- and fourth-stringers had to turn in their uniforms to the laundry.

Behind a near-flawless defense, an efficient offense and serviceable special teams, the ThunderWolves, all who were in uniform with eligibility to burn, dismantled Fort Lewis College 38-0 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

CSU-Pueblo won every phase of the game, and did so easily, at the Neta & Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl.

So what's a Thunder Wolf?

Here is the history of the mascot from Wiki:

The University of Southern Colorado now Colorado State University-Pueblo adopted the "ThunderWolf" as its mascot prior to the 1995-96 academic school year. The ThunderWolf came to life as USC looked to modernize its image following over 60 years of being known as the "Indians." The legend of the "ThunderWolf" is as follows:

"The thunderwolf was discovered in the Southern Colorado foothills in 1933. The species is thought to be indigenous only on the city of Pueblo's beautiful horizon from the Spanish Peaks to the south to Pike's Peak to the north. A regal and majestic animal, the thunderwolf has evolved into the wisest and strongest of all beasts. The thunderwolf is cloaked with hair as blue as Colorado's skies, and with a mantelet of hair around its neck as white as Colorado's snow-capped mountain peaks. Longer guard hairs, as red as Colorado's rocky soil, abound throughout the white mantelet. Some say they have seen lightening bolts in the thunderwolf's large blue eyes.

Because it is an intelligent and inquisitive animal, the thunderwolf expands its knowledge and understanding of the environment daily. Although the thunderwolf exhibits a cooperative team spirit when hunting with the pack, it also is an individualistic thinker which helps the pack burst through paradigms when solving problems.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of thunderwolves is their ability to form unusual partnerships with other species to protect the environment for the general good. Their excellent communication skills have led some observers to believe thunderwolves may be able to communicate to different species from other countries.

Colorado State University-Pueblo is proud to be known as the ThunderWolves, and we hope the thunderwolves are proud of us as well."

The original ThunderWolf logo was put into place prior to the 1995-96 school year. Designed to elicit fear and reverence, the original logo contained a detailed head of a ThunderWolf with a mountain range in the background. After a few years of use, the logo was eventually scrapped for a more easily reproduced logo that contained the letters "USC".

The logo remained in use until the University of Southern Colorado changed its name prior to the 2003-04 school year to Colorado State University-Pueblo. While the university's main logo changed to mimic that of its parent institution, Colorado State University, the ThunderWolves logo went in another direction.

A PC-correct bullshit name because the prior mascot was the "Indians".

No relevance to the school though. None at all.

I'd have gone for "Boilermakers", "Puddlers", or the "Breakouts"
