Countdown To Kickoff - Wyoming


By W.G. Ramirez, Special to


  • Predicted Finish - Fourth in the Mountain Division
  • Retuning/Lost Lettermen - 45/15
  • Returning Starters - 17/7
  • Key Returner - Junior DE Eddie Yarbrough

The Skinny - There's a new regime in Laramie, as coach Craig Bohl brings his experience from the Football Championship Subdivision to the program. Bohl led North Dakota State to three straight FCS National Championships and an 11-year record of 104-32. He inherits a team that returns 17 starters and 45 letterwinners. The Cowboys opened the 2013 season 4-2, but finished 1-5.

Says Yarbrough, on team being underestimated - "I love surprising other people. With the way we're flying under the radar, I feel like a lot of people think that with a brand new coaching staff, you'd think that things would be in an array and things aren't in line and we're not getting things done. We're at the same point, if not further along at this point going into fall camp then we were with our last coaching staff. We're even better physically than we were last year. We're going to surprise a lot of people.
