Former Boise State Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier will interview for the vacant San Jose State athletic director position Monday, Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News reported Sunday night. Wilner said Blemayier is the "only candidate" right now, according to a source.

Bleymaier oversaw the Broncos' department for nearly 30 years, including its ascension into college football's elite in recent seasons but was fired after the NCAA cited the Broncos for lack of institutional control after violations across several programs.

• The WAC is set to lose another member. Texas-Arlington, a non-football member, was set to join the WAC in 2013, but will instead join the Sun Belt. The move leaves the WAC with just five all-sport members for 2013: Boise State, Idaho, New Mexico State, Denver and Seattle. Idaho and New Mexico State are the only football-playing members.

• Former Boise State wide receiver Titus Young, now with the Detroit Lions, missed workouts because he allegedly punched teammate Louis Delmas, the Detroit Free Press reported.

• The Big East is holding its annual meetings Monday through Wednesday in Ponte Vedra, Florida. The league heard presentations from NBC and Fox Sports on Monday morning, a promising sign for a league that is counting on a lucrative television contract to keep it alive. ESPN, the current rights holder, has an exclusive window to negotiate with the Big East. Negotiations with ESPN are expected to begin in September.

Wow

Young sure turned out to be a loser after such a promising start. They might send him packing pretty soon. The Lions had huge discipline problems last season and I don't think they will tolerate this much more.

WHAT??

An offensive player and a defensive player getting in a fight during camp??? Haven't followed much NFL football have you??

Ummm

Apparently you don't know this isn't the first time this has happened with Young. He's a repeat offender. Last season he threw a punch during a game, costing the Lions a touchdown. When it starts costing wins, you DON'T get away with that for long.

Im trying to wrap my head around your comment...

Please let us all know how almost 50 grabs for 600 yards and 6 TD's spells "loser". AS A ROOKIE. Along side Calvin Johnson.

Theres no question the kid is still immature. But the Lions are not likely to get rid of him. Come on, man.

Did you put an envelope to your turban to predict this...

Oh Carnac the Younger?

It you go online and yell FAQ YOU TOO

You are cut off at the well son.

Titus

has been a fighter all his life....and he's also a good guy....for years Detroit has had passive players....Schwartz will figure out a way to get Titus through it....the mental toughness of not backing down is what Detroit needs.

Schwartz loves this stuff and......

Titus knows it.

A loser?

I think you must have an interesting definition of the word loser. I would bet most professional athletes who are extremely competitive by nature, have had a scuffle or two with teammates at some point in their career.

all in all ....

my son had a class Titus Young prior to his senior season. He found Young to be brash, arrogant, obnoxious, generous, friendly, and kind. We are all walking contradictions in one way or another.

If Bleymaier can help save San Jose States athletic program, he's a magician.

Well said...

Isnt that the truth?

I also may add the guy is a WR (known prima donnas) and a very good one at that. I sometimes dont think the brain is fully functional at 21 years of age for some young fellas.

I missed some brick walls----

at 21. But also ran into a few.

good luck Gene wish you were

good luck Gene wish you were still here getting ready to retire and have a stadium named after you but a selfish politician had to try to put his name out there by firing you for no good reason....FIRE KUSTRA and continued success Gene!
