UW depth chart prediction

Monday afternoon Wyoming football coach Dave Christensen will speak to the media leading into Saturday’s season-opener against Weber State.

Christensen will release the depth chart for the first game. Some positions (quarterback) we know who will start. In fact, I don’t think there should be many surprises. But why wait until Monday afternoon? Here is how I think the depth chart will look. Would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. RG-

    Amazing how young we are, I guess when you don’t have many veteran players- you run with the young guns. You can’t be too far off RG.

    • You are right about being young. And this senior class isn’t that big. Something to build on I hope.
