Re: I don't think Devin likes Logan

At the risk of sounding obtuse or racially insensitive, I feel the need to defend the people of Cache Valley. First, having spent most my formative years in Cache Valley, people who are racist are the exception. However, because there are so few of other races, people have little face-to-face experi...

Re: Aggie legends podcast with David Collette is up

Does it matter? Either way Collette and Utah broke the rules and when crap like this happens NO ONE wins. Utah State, Duryea, Collette, Utah and Crisco all ended up in a worse position because of his complete lack of integrity. I don't know. I feel like I won. I get to watch Smith coach what might ...

Re: Mark Harlan is a pussy....

The idea of a billboard is fun, but I'd much rather we pool the money for a donation directly to one of our program's funds (Big Blue or Merlin Olsen).

I couldn't care less if we play UofU. And UofU will continue their two-step around us.

Re: Let’s schedule a “1 and done” at Utah this year.

I was on the executive board of the Ole big blue club and pushed to play games in SLC so aggie alums could go and enjoy, we never got as much support as I had hoped for, and it pissed off a lot of cache valley season ticket holders. As an alum who lives about 15 minutes from the Jazz arena, I never...

1. Because it gives us as good of a chance as game any game would with for a potential Tier 1 win in the NCAA Net ranking. There's a decent shot Utah is top 75 next season. Key word "potential" tier 1 win. I'm not convinced they'll be very good. I can think of a lot of other teams where a one and d...

Re: Aggie legends podcast with David Collette is up

If we wanted to get into the world of counterfactuals, had Collette stuck around we could have had a much better team and our current view of Duryea could be very different. Though eventually Duyrea would likely have been exposed for the mediocre coach that he is sooner or later. Likely later. Coll...

Re: 1280 top 60

The top 60 is summer filler. They need something to fill the time and no one in our market wants to listen to guys talk about baseball. So between NBA off-season drama, they fill time with the top 60.

Did I miss something, or why isn't anyone talking about Karwowski being in the lineup? Does he have plans to redshirt? I think that since he is coming from a JC that he doesn't have to sit out, right?
I think Kuba is shorthand for Karwowski... I don't know how, but that's what I'm guessing.

Re: Queta

If we stay with where things are, this team is capable of a special season, a 5-ish range seed, and a sweet 16.

Is there a PG who can improve on that? Maybe. I suspect the coaches are going to be careful about the fit - as they should be.
