New Year's Resolutions For Each Mountain West Team


Learn a new skill or hobby

With Hawaii likely keeping head coach Graham in town, perhaps he could learn some motivational tactics to relate better to his players. Take up a hobby that his players are interested in and figure out what his players like to do and become more relatable.

Wyoming football’s new hobby can be about how to utilize the forward pass and this video might be a good idea for Craig Bohl and his staff to learn that this aspect of the game has been around for a long time.

Hawaii head coach Todd Graham may want to go purchase the book: When Sorry Isn’t Enough: Making Things Right with Those You Love.

Here is a blurb for the book.

In this book, No, 1 New York Times bestselling author Gary Chapman and Jennifer Thomas unveil new ways to effectively approach and mend fractured relationships. Even better, you’ll discover how meaningful apologies provide the power to make your friendships, family, and marriage stronger than ever before.

With all of the issues going on in Hawaii, this looks to be the perfect book for Graham to figure things out and be a bit nicer of a coach to his players.

Live life to the fullest

This could literally go for every college football program out there as these guys are very straightforward and single-minded on college football. One person, in particular, this could fit is Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun who is way too serious. Perhaps it is working at an armed service institution or it is he has just coached a long, long time.

Utah State is also riding high after its turnaround season going from a single win during the covid 2020 season, and it would be a good idea to keep on celebrating and going for more in 2022.

Exercise more

This was a tough one but this resolution goes to Boise State. They have been hit with injuries the pat two years to its offensive line and to running back George Holani. When those two areas of their team were not healthy, the Broncos struggled to be at their best.

Perhaps a new workout regimine could keep the entire team a bit more healthy and off the injured list going into 2022. Even with those players out, Boise State was still an above average team in the Mountain West who was in the running for a division title up until the final week of the season.

Spend more time with family and friends

Everyone loves to say that San Diego State is a sleeping giant in football. The Aztecs have become a formdible force of West Coast football with many wins over the Pac-12, earning national rankings, and also conference titles.

This resolution is in line with recruiting San Diego and Southern California better. There is so much talent in that part of the country that if the Aztecs were to get just a few more better players to consder San Diego State over lower-level Pac-12 offers, they could take the next step and be a consistent top 20 team.

Lose Weight

To be honest, this was a tough one to come up with. We will go with San Jose State, UNLV, and New Mexico. It is not because of actual physical weight but more along the lines of the weight of losing.

The Spartans have put that aside and they are looking to take the next step to becoming at least a bowl eligible team every year and prove that 2020 was not a fluke of a year.

The Rebels and Lobos, need to get rid of the weight of past that unfotunately includes a lot of losses on their schedule. Thinking more positive goes a long way but also does coaching and both teams seem to be getting there.

UNLV had six losses this past year that were one possession outcomes, so that 2-10 record could have been closer to .500 if a few things went there way.

New Mexico ha the right energetic coach in Danny Gonzales plus it helps to have Rocky Long getting the defense in order. This one still could take a bit to get going as their biggest hole is to find a quarterback. Injuries have decimiated that unit the past two years, but if they can find a solid quarterback then the Lobos will slowly be on their way.
