VIDEO: This St. Nicolas doesn’t give gifts, he takes

I’ve been wanting to secure Cal Poly football cornerback Nico Molino for an edition of “What animal would you be” for a couple of weeks, ever since he had the game-clinching interception in a 24-22 victory at Wyoming.

A Laramie perspective on Cal Poly-Wyoming

I took part in a question swap this week with Wyoming football beat reporter Robert Gagliardi of the Wyoming Tribune Eagle. We asked each other five questions about the game, and I think we each came away with some better insight into Saturday’s showdown between the Mustangs (1-0) and Cowboys (0-2). Read his answers to …

Return of the Scrogcast

We missed a week last week on the Scrogcast, but Donovan “DAIRD to Keep Kids off Drugs” Aird and I have talked about doing a very special podcast to breakdown the Cal Poly-UC Davis matchup next week to make up for it. We could end up doing shows in three consecutive weeks. But for now, …

Cal Poly’s already in the playoffs

When the Cal Poly football team dropped an ugly 20-7 loss at Southern Utah a few weeks back, I was pretty down on the Mustangs’ Football Championship Subdivision playoff chances. The loss — which was painfully close to becoming the first time a Cal Poly offense has been shut out since 1998 — didn’t inspire …

The Monarchs’ new Dominion

Every season it seems like Cal Poly has a previously anonymous opponent or two that the Mustangs are playing for the first time, and this year is no exception. Many times, we look at those first-time meetings as coming against overmatched opponents looking to enjoy a free trip to the Central Coast. Many expect St. …
