The Wyoming Cowboys need to play angry.
In sports, you often hear about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude. Coaches and players lecture about "flushing" a loss, ejecting it from your memory and moving forward in a new day. The losses may pile up, but they won't crush you, because you approach each game like the last one never happened.

The Wyoming Cowboys have come a long way.
After its second preseason scrimmage on Oct. 18, head coach Larry Shyatt said he liked his team's selflessness on the offensive end, but the amount of easy baskets was a concern.
Riley Grabau and Austin Haldorson each drained four 3-pointers in the scrimmage, while freshman Trey Washington III knocked in 3.
You could call it good offense...
Riley Grabau scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds Saturday as Wyoming held San Jose State to just four second half field goals in a 46-38 win.
Trailing 29-26 at the break, Wyoming (16-9, 7-5 Mountain West Conference) opened the second half with an 11-2 run sparked by a Derek Cooke Jr. dunk and then held San Jose State to a season-low nine second half points to cement the win...

Larry Shyatt hoped that one day his University of Wyoming men's basketball team would find a rainbow after a eight losses by eight points or less this season, including a pair of road losses last week by a combined seven points.
Shyatt's Cowboys found that rainbow, but instead of a pot of gold at the end of it they earned their biggest win of the season -- and in recent...
And just like that, the streak is over.
Riley Grabau scored 17 points, Larry Nance Jr. had 14 and Wyoming beat No. 5 San Diego State 68-62 on Tuesday night to end the Aztecs' run of 20 straight wins, which tied the school record set three years ago.
''We'll come back the next game and we'll be ready to play,'' coach Steve Fisher said.
While every loss...

The Wyoming Cowboys do not get much attention for the product that they put on the field very much--unless it is about a marquee team giving them a spanking. So while it may take a little too long to turn the team into something more noteworthy the school decided it can make its field news.
The 7220 feet signifies the height about sea level of the field which does make the...

I have to say I like this a hell of a lot more than the different colored fields that teams keep creating. There’s nothing out of the ordinary on the playing field, but the end zone design is crazy. Definitely a unique touch to put on their stadium and it looks great. You have to love the old school font for the end zones as well as the mountain ranges. Here’s what their...
