It may still be July, but Rams fans excited for football season will get an early taste on Monday and Tuesday as Colorado State takes part in Mountain West Media Days in Las Vegas.
Held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for the second year in a row, MW Media Days will feature Head Coach Jim McElwain, senior linebacker Shaquil Barrett and Weston Richburg representing Colorado State. The trio will take part in two days of interviews from local, regional and national media, previewing the 2013 season.
McElwain, Barrett and Richburg arrived in Las Vegas today. The players took part in a tour of the Media Days set-up with their counterparts from across the MW, and had their own players' dinner at The Cosmopolitan's Wicked Spoon.
The Monday interview schedule begins at 8 a.m. (PT) and includes:
- CBS Sports Network specialty shots, interviews and talent session
- Mountain West Network interviews
- Mountain West promos and PSAs
- ROOT Sports interviews
- Campus Insiders interviews
- Local TV interviews
- Print media sessions
- Radio Row segments
Also Monday morning The MW will release the preseason all-conference teams and predicted order of finish at 8:30 a.m. (PT). Tuesday, the interviews continue for head coaches.
Fans can follow all the action on:
- Twitter (@CSUFootball, @TheMWC, #MWFB)

Rams fans also can participate in the event by tweeting questions for Barrett (use #AskShaq) and Richburg (#AskWeston) to @CSUFootball throughout the day on Monday, July 21.
