Cowboy Tough was started earlier this year with the goal of promoting UW athletics in a fun and entertaining fashion to a whole lot of people. Thanks to your support (yes you the reader!!!), Cowboy Tough has been picked up by the Fansided.com blog network and has been re-branded “7220 Report”. On this new network the blog will be able to reach a wider number of fans and will have some pretty cool features such as podcasts in the coming months. Thanks again for your readership and checkout the new site here: 7220 Report . Cowboy Tough will still be up and running but a majority of my time and work will be at the 7220 Report so update your bookmarks, stop on by the new site and let us know what you think.

Cowboy Tough is moving folks but have no fear as the content that you all love is not going away. Cowboy Tough is being re-branded (no pun intended) and moving to a platform where it can reach the masses of Poke Nation and all points in between. Unlike the Baltimore Colts we are moving in the light of day. Be sure to check back here on Monday for all the details as it adds to the excitement of the 2010 edition of Wyoming Cowboy football!
It’s camping time folks, but there is no need to bring your tents, sleeping bags or granola bars. The University of Wyoming football team opens their second fall camp today under the leadership of coach Dave Christensen. This is the first season since 2005 coming off of the Las Vegas Bowl victory that there has been this much excitement going into a Wyoming football season and we all know what happened that year. Chances are Christensen won’t let a similar thing happen as he has his mind-set on higher goals than lower level bowl victories.
To get your “camping” fix checkout this practice schedule released by the university. The key dates to focus on include August 13th, 17th, 21st and 25th where the team will hold scrimmages. Cowboy Tough will have complete coverage of fall camp and be sure to lookout for position previews as camp churns forward!
You know football season is quickly approaching when the preseason media poll is released. There aren’t many surprises here as things look pretty clear-cut as of now but you never know when the season starts. Injuries, super impact freshman and transfers can shape a team allowing them to rise to the top or sink to the bottom. There is a full season preview to come on Cowboy Tough but off-hand I have a similar opinion as the media with the only exception being we might flip-flop BYU and Air Force. Here is what the media is predicting for 2010:
Mountain West Conference preseason football poll
(As chosen by a poll of MWC media members; listed with first-place votes in parantheses)
1. TCU (31) … 279
2. Utah … 242
3. BYU … 207
4. Air Force … 195
5. Wyoming … 147
6. San Diego State … 128
