Honest, biased preseason WAC standings

Yesterday: preseason WAC players of the year

Today: preseason WAC poll

Tomorrow: a nap




The WAC media and coaches have released their picks for conference favorites, and now it is time to reveal ours. As is always the case, our preseason poll has an unconventional look to it, and plenty of bias and passive-aggressive anger went into the picks. Feel free to tell us how badly we botched things.



1. Boise State

We see them going undefeated and winning the national championship, which is probably why we weren't invited to the WAC media convention.

2. Nevada

Why are we giving Nevada respect? Beats us, but we do see them winning six conference games

3. Fresno State

We'd be surprised if anyone else had the Bulldogs this low, but if there's a way for Fresno to screw the pooch in conference play, they'll find it. We imagine it's hiding under the guise of a road game at LaTech.

4. Louisiana Tech

Speaking of LaTech, the Bulldogs may show flashes of a program on the rise this season. However, they will also show flashes of LaTech.

5. San Jose State

If the Spartans win in Hawaii in September, they could certainly finish here. If they don't, then we will never trust them with anything again.

6. Hawaii

The Warriors may surprise us, or they may completely implode under the shaky hand of Tyler Graunke and the deer-in-the-headlights stare of Greg McMackin. We're betting on the latter.

7. Idaho

The Vandals are a poorly-coached, undisciplined, talentless football team. That's good enough for seventh place in the WAC.

8. Utah State

Happy trails, Brent Guy. Pick up your parting gift at Deseret Industries on your way out.

9. New Mexico State

Finishing below Idaho and Utah State is no easy task, but considering that the Aggies lost at home last year to USU and get both of the teams on the road this season, we're confident they are up to the challenge. Catch the Hal Mumme fever!
