CollegeFootballNews.com came out with its rankings of the nation’s 124 Football Bowl Subdivsion teams in 2012.
Surprisingly, it had Wyoming No. 93. Here’s what it said about the Cowboys:
93. Wyoming (2011 Record: 8-5, 2012 Roughly Projected Record: 5-7)
Wyoming always seems to regress to the mean following a stunning, out-of-the-blue season. Quarterback Brett Smith is coming off a breakout season, but he can’t play defense. The Cowboy line couldn’t stop anyone’s running game, and it’s not going to be any closer to becoming a rock this year. That’ll be a big, big problem with Texas, Nevada, Air Force, Fresno State, and Boise State all on the schedule before November. Things ease up a bit late, but the midsection could be just rough enough to keep the program from getting back to a bowl game.
Thoughts, opinions on this? I thought the ranking was low, but I see the point it makes with the defense. I thought the unit made improvements in the spring, but it has to show it on the field.
