Re: Recruiting

Not true... OSU is at the lost level of Big10 academics and their MBA isn’t terribly well respected. Although nominally better than USU, OSU isn’t a ticket to anything other than regional jobs.

Re: Best / Worst Stadiums and where you have been

When UT Arlington was in our conference, or maybe it was until the year before they joined, they played in a theater, Texas Hall. You could either sit in the theater seats or they set up bleachers backstage.

Third jersey?

With the new jerseys this year, I seem to remember hearing there was a secret third jersey that would be used later in the year.

First, am I wrong about that?

If true, do we know when this will happen? I’m wondering if it will be a Spectrum Magic jersey that looks a lot like the Jazz City jerseys.

On the “Aggies” theme, don’t rule out UC Davis offensive coordinator, Tim Plough.

They have had the best offense in the Big Sky since he took over as OC and he’s considered a top young coach.
