Season Record

Wyoming: 2-5 conf, 6-5 Overall (MWC)

As matchups go… this is one where the key metrics are all that apply.  From the season opener on, both teams have stunk up the field.  Hawaii players have the advantage because they live in Hawaii… They have no other advantage over MWC rivals. Last season both these teams experienced an interruption of play from Covid-19… both struggled to recruit… Now they both struggle to win.  As college football picks go though… This can be a moneymaker. All we have to determine about the latest odds is whether Hawaii is a 10-point underdog or not.  The point total feels a little out of whack.  Let’s look at the numbers.

COACHES

Hawaii:  Todd Graham.  Coach Graham is enjoying a wonderful early retirement.  He lives in Hawaii and makes $800, 000 a year to do it.  Occasionally he has to show up to the local college and call some plays.  The plays don’t work, but who cares… IT’S HAWAII.  He used to live in New Mexico!  

Wyoming: Craig Bohl.  Coach Bohl makes $1.5 million per year, but he has to live in Wyoming.  He has to get someone to shovel his driveway free of snow.  He has to get a stack of firewood to burn in the fireplace or risk freezing through the night.  He has to bring a jacket and gloves with him late into spring in case he is out after sunset.  He is 44-49 since 2014… too many more wins and they might make him stay.
