Cody Tucker founded 7220 Sports several years ago and has been covering the Wyoming Cowboys and all their sports ever since and was kind enough to spend some time talking to Dahl and myself on this past week’s Sports Friday. The first topic to mention was of course the effect of the transfer portal which many fans see as a negative or as a sign of disloyalty when one of their favorite players transfers to a new school but Cody actually believes the door swings both ways and can be just as much of a benefit as a hitch.
The Wyoming Cowboys have their Bowl Game coming up against the University of Ohio in the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl which will take place is Tuscon, Arizona on December 30th at 2:30pm here in the mountain time zone. Wyoming may have gotten big boost heading into the game but in an unfortunate way as Ohio’s steller passer in Kurtis Rourke was injured and didn’t play in the MAC championship and will not play in the Bowl game either, which should be massive for the Cowboys defense.
On the Wyoming end of things though a number of players on their offense will also not be available whether due to injuries or due to impending transfers and will be on their season-opening 5th string RB heading into the game against the Bobcats. This is nothing new to the Cowboys however as they have been rolling through their RB room all season long and will continue to do so come the 30th.
On the basketball end of things the Cowboys have started their winter sports season and despite the recent win against Texas A&M Commerce Coach Linder had a message for the fans who have been scarce to say the least in attendance, “Where is the loyalty from the fans?”. Cody completely agreed with the coaches assessment of the fan-involvement this winter especially those living in the Laramie area.
Cody Tucker has been to every Wyoming Cowboys football game for 28 years he goes on to state in the interview and is confused by the lack of turnout the Cowboys are getting to start the hardwood season. You can catch the full interview right below:
