C’mon, admit it, you thought the Warriors would be exactly where they are now.
After three games — a fourth of the regular season — the 2-1 Warriors beat the teams they were supposed to beat and lost a road game in which they were heavy underdogs.
So here’s the dealio:
> Bye week: Seven coaches remained on the road to recruit. The Warriors also can used the next two no-practice days to catch up on school work.
> Doing the splits: The Warriors only need to win half their MW games to qualify for the Hawaii Bowl.
> Fair conditions: Sure, it’s tough to open MW play in Laramie on Sept. 23. But the Cowboys will have played three games in row, including this coming week’s meeting against Oregon. The Warriors, meanwhile, will enter off a bye. Playing a game in balmy September is as good a situation, at least weather wise, that can be hoped.
