One of the most irresponsible things I could do with a time machine is to hop back to one week ago---Las Vegas circa 2014---and hobnob with Craig Thompson, eating jumbo shrimp, laughing about the Sun Belt, and submitting Mountain West media days ballots with Hawaii "LOL" in invisible ink.
There are more important things to do with a time machine. But let's just say I did these things instead.
Here's the ballot I would have submitted.
1. Boise State - because homerism
2. Utah State
3. Colorado State
5. New Mexico
6. Air Force
1. Fresno State
2. San Diego State
4. San Jose State
Offensive Player of the Year
Jay Ajayi, Boise State
Defensive Player of the Year
Derron Smith, Fresno State
Special Teams Player of the Year
Here, you can borrow my time machine ...
First, what would be the first thing you'd do with a time machine? (Mine: Give Kyle Brotzman life affirmations the day of the Reno Game of Which We Do Not Speak.)
Second, what would your Mountain West ballots look like?
And how's the shrimp?
