    With the release of the game to the public tomorrow (the more privileged have the game already) I figured we could bang out a media day from each team in the conference. This is a good way to not only study your own roster, but learn about everyone else's squad in the MWC as well.

    Team: Nevada Wolf Pack
    Offensive Playbook: Nevada Pistol
    Defensive Playbook: TBD (Leaning towards 4-3)
    Key Losses: Head Coach Chris Ault, MLB Albert Rosette, RB Stefphon Jefferson, RB Nick Hale
    Key Returners: QB Cody Fajardo, WR Brandon Wimberly, TE Kolby Arendse, LT Joel Bitonio, DE Brock Hekking
    Players you expect to be all-Mountain West caliber: QB Cody Fajardo and WR Brandon Wimberly
    Will any freshman or signees contribute this year?: JUCO transfer HB Don Jackson is projected to be our starting RB this season
    Season outlook/predictions for your team: 8 wins is our goal year 1. I am not worried about our offense, we are going to put up a lot of yards and points. However, this defense will need at least a season to rebuild. It is awful, to put it frankly. I look to improve my Pistol reads season 1 and start recruiting the type of defensive players I think can help this team be a real contender in the MWC. Will be an interesting and fun year 1.
    Game(s) you have marked: Week 1 @ UCLA, Week 3 @ Florida State, New Mexico
    National Champion: Gonna go out on a limb and say CPU takes it year 1 lol, going with the Ohio State Buckeyes
    Z2H Mountain West Player of the Year: QB David Fales, San Jose State Spartans
    Z2H Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year: DE DeMarcus Lawrence, Boise State Broncos
    Z2H Mountain West Coach of the Year: I think Guy will have his Air Force squad surprise some people this season, gonna go with him. He wanted Air Force, now he has them. I think he has something up his sleeve. Also keep an eye out on those Utah State Aggies and Hawaii Warriors.

    Team: Utah State
    Offensive Playbook: Unknown (probably Utah St playbook)
    Defensive Playbook: Unknown
    Key Losses: WR core, top 5 receivers all graduated
    Key Returners: QB Chuckie Keeton and LB Jake Doughty
    Players you expect to be all-Mountain West caliber: Keeton and Doughty
    Will any freshman or signees contribute this year?: Freshmen will have the best opportunity at WR and DB's as we lost a lot in those areas
    Season outlook/predictions for your team: New conference for Utah St will yield some unfavorable results leading to a middle of the pack outcome and probably 4 or 5 losses
    Game(s) you have marked: All, new conference so we can't take anything for granted
    National Champion: CPU, Alabama (why not)
    Z2H Mountain West Player of the Year: Fresno St QB Derek Carr
    Z2H Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year: Utah St LB Jake Doughty

    Offensive Playbook: Colorado State University
    Defensive Playbook: 4-3 Multiple

    Key Losses: LT Joe Caprioglio, P Pete Kontodiakos
    Key Returners: C Weston Richburg, LB Shaquil Barrett, CB Shaq Bell

    Players you expect to be all-Mountain West caliber: C Weston Richburg, LB Shaquil Barrett

    Will any freshman or signees contribute this year?: WR Jordon Vaden, P Hayden Hunt or Keenan Adams

    Season outlook/predictions for your team: Road games against Tulsa and Alabama are going to be tough, obviously, but CSU is compensated by getting four strong Mountain West opponents at home: San Jose State, Nevada, Boise State and Air Force. The downside is that CSU then draws toss-up games against Wyoming, Hawaii, New Mexico and Utah State on the road.

    5-7 CSU still seems at least a year away from a bowl birth.

    Game(s) you have marked: vs. Colorado (in Denver), @ Alabama, & all MWC games

    National Champion: Stanford


    Z2H Mountain West Player of the Year: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
    Z2H Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year: Jeremy Ioane, DB, Boise State
    Z2H Mountain West Coach of the Year: Cole Copeland , SDSU

    Players you expect to be all-Mountain West caliber: QB Adam Dingwell, HB Adam Muema, WR Colin Lockett, and the LB corp
    Season outlook/predictions for your team: I will not settle for anything less than a conference championship. With this team, I don't see why I shouldn't have a great shot.

    Offensive Playbook: TBD
    Defensive Playbook: TBD
    Key Losses: From a 2 win team??? lol
    Key Returners: QB Nick Sherry returns and is just a SO.
    Players you expect to be all-Mountain West caliber: Nobody.
    Will any freshman or signees contribute this year?: We're unsure what his name is, but we have an incoming mobile QB with some nice ratings. If we decide to go to more of a mobile offense, he could see some good playing time.
    Season outlook/predictions for your team: Our goal is to reach at least 3 wins. It's been 4 years since UNLV has won more than 2 games, so we need to change that now...even if it's just 3.
    Game(s) you have marked: Pretty much just Oct. 26 in Reno, NV. If nothing else, we need to teach our inbred cousins to the north a lesson.
    National Champion: How can you bet against Alabama at this point? They're poised to do it again.
    Z2H Mountain West Player of the Year: QB Derek Carr is the best player in the MWC and should be the favorite to win the POTY.
    Z2H Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year: LB Jake Fely is the captain of the SDSU defense and is the best defensive player in the MWC. He could probably show new SD Charger LB Manti Te'o a thing or two about how to play in San Diego.
    Z2H Mountain West Coach of the Year: I think we're going to see bouncer take the Utah State Aggies far in their first MWC season and win Coach of the Year.
