LARAMIE -- We were going to take the week off with the Cowboy football team.

Plans changed.

New UW basketball coach Jeff Linder, like he's been known to do, kept us plenty busy this week. We couldn't be more thankful. Here's what happened this week:

  • Men's and women's basketball, wrestling, track signing days
  • Mountain West hoops moving to 20 conference games
  • That new schedule incudes five home and away two-game series
  • Pokes men's hoops picked ninth by the media
  • Linder announces UW's seven-game non-conference slate
  • Craig Bohl and Co. focused on fundamentals during "bye week"
  • Injuries, other news and notes from Monday press conference

We talk about it all right here:
