Awesome story, JT. Thanks for sharing and reading.


I think ideally, most coaches would simply prefer a neutral site each year.


Teams like Duke have decades of high-level success and are located in attractive areas that "one-and-done" recruits want to live. Wyoming's averaged more than 20 wins over the past four seasons. I think Shyatt's doing just fine.



Wyoming has an offer out to Theo Dawson of Jackson, but no other seniors are garnering much interest from FBS schools. In-state recruiting is its top priority, as evidenced by two scholarship freshmen from the state (Josh Harshman and Logan Wilson).


I imagine it's on the schedule because it won't affect UW's RPI. And it's definitely a favor to Jeron Roberts. Unique matchup, though, no doubt.



We've had numerous requests from readers to keep tabs on players who don't choose UW. Some fans like to know who the Cowboys are competing with on the recruiting trail, so I've kept tabs on those players' whereabouts.

Thanks for reading,



Gretel, I'm simply reporting what analysts told me. No one's being set up.
