PODCAST: The 2021 Mountain West Football Schedule Is Out!
Jeremy and Matt examine the newly released football schedule. They’ll play the whole thing this time, right?
Plenty to discuss.
Jeremy and Matt are back to talk about the Mountain West’s football schedule for the fall. We’ve known for a while what the non-conference slate would look like and that the inter-division clashes would flip once again, but there are some developments we couldn’t foresee.
We lead off this podcast by discussing the tendency of football coaches to compare players to NFL greats, like Colorado State’s John Budmayr did recently with incumbent quarterback Todd Centeio, before diving deep into schedule talk. Why would the conference go back to featuring cross-division games in the regular season’s final week? Which presumed contender looks like it will have the toughest path to a berth in the championship game? Which down-and-out teams in 2020 could see a big jump in the win column with the schedule in front of them? Which weeks of Mountain West football, top to bottom, should everyone be penciling on their calendars right now? We talk about all that and more.
