Re: Abel Porter

It is possible to simultaneously hold the views that: (1) Abel is a good player and valuable contributor on the team; and (2) we should have brought in an athletic JUCO or grad transfer PG as a change of pace even though/if Abel is the starter. I really like Abel a lot. However, we have a glut of p...

Re: We won.

Anderson and Bean were the stars of the game. Combine stats tells the story with 39 points and 16 rebounds which lead the way of a 27 point margin win. Too many TOs and missed FTs by us. Dorius outplayed Kuba. Brito is beginning to look like a starter, and the opposite can be said about Porter. Bri...

Re: Aggies and Boise makes CFP rankings

I believe that if we win out, including the championship game, we would go over Cincy, if they did happen to win the AAC with one loss. There loss is worse then ours (Temple), and we would have two wins over potentially ranked teams. They did beat UCLA, but UCLA is having a very down year. I think ...

In contrast the Utah - byu has the Utes leading the series 57 - 34 - 4 or 60% of the time. Interest...

Utah State played its first football game in the late 1800's... That's a lot of history to consider. There was a period of time in the 60's and 70's that USU had great success. Considering all history (looking for at you, old timers) are there any other games that should be considered?

I think some of you are way over thinking this. If they rush now its not going to make a rush later in the season for a conference/championship game any less special.
