Imagine being Wyoming head coach Joe Glenn. You coach a team in a state in which there are almost no Division I players to speak of, the weather is frigid, you're isolated in Laramie and you play on brown grass year-round. Yet somehow, you still find a way to win. Now that is what you call good recruiting!
Since Joe Tiller's departure in the early '90s, the Pokes' program has been up-and-down and struggled to consistently put a winning team on the field. Then Joe Glenn came along. Under Glenn, the Cowboys made their first bowl appearance in 11 season with a win over UCLA in the Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl in 2004. Throughout his career, Glenn has won three national championships (two at Northern Colorado and one at Montana), six conference championships and has 17 winning seasons in 20 years as a head coach.
The elements and dearth of instate talent are against them, but Wyoming can still recruit.
