Re: Burrow vs Love

Burrow was good with a clean pocket, but Burrow without a clean pocket struggled mightily. Burrow is going to fall apart in big games when he gets pressured. Love didn't have a perfect game, and his stats look bad. Love was better than Burrow despite the different stats. Love can't run the routes f...

Re: LSU Game: Keys to winning

This may be the best team USU has ever played in its entire football history. The keys to winning would all be illegal in my opinion. LSU favored by 24 (like us and CSU). I would be delighted if we did better than that. LSU may be good but it’s not the best team we’ve ever played. Here are some bet...

My favorite USU/CSU moment

I cannot think of the Aggies playing CSU without thinking about this play. Yeah — most of you know which one I’m talking about without me saying more. One of my favorite Aggies ever and one of the best commentaries of an Aggie play ever. Enjoy!

Highlights of the SDS game



Most of the highlights are from SDS’ 4th down Hail Mary plays. The complexion of the game would have been much different had we put their QB on his butt those two plays.

Re: We Did It!!!

4th and 47 for SDS, on their 2 yard line, with one play left and my thought was, “They’ve got us right where they want us!” Why does my Aggie DNA force me to think like that?

Big win and a huge monkey off our backs.
