Re: Covid impact on USU vs BSU

do we know which players did not get on the bus to Boise? I am excited for this game and to see what we have as a team! Well I saw Jaylen Warren, deven thompkins, Jason shelley and Jordan shelley board the bus. So we got those 4 at least. It's nice to see that you're predicting such a great relatio...
