- We will have our analysis on the schedule throughout the day. Conference games early in the season is a first.
- Old Dominion has released the time and date for their spring game.
- We always hear stories of teams losing money during bowl season but Old Dominion actually made a nice profit in their first bowl trip.
- La Tech loses their running backs coach to LSU.
- North Texas has lost their defensive coordinator.
- New Mexico State is the next team up in Bill Connelly’s college football countdown in a due or die year for Dog Martin. Excerpt from the preview is below.
“With no contract for 2018, the time is quite obviously now for Martin at NMSU, and while S&P+ is not optimistic -- let's just say recent history matters significantly in S&P+ projections, and there's not a lot to go by -- the combination of returning production, health, and JUCO infusion could pay off.
If it does, and NMSU is closer to a No. 100 team than a No. 125 team, wins are there for the taking.”
