Re: Sam Merrill jersey

Is anyone else more concerned why we can’t buy a Sam Merrill Aggie jersey? Sure I could order a knockoff from one of those questionable websites, but I’d prefer not to. Also seems weird that we’ve produced two of the greatest football players ever, but we still can’t buy a Bobby Wagner or Merlín Ol...

Re: Sam Highlights

Loved watching him out there. It looks like he got credit for the block in the box scores, but watching the replay, I don't think he blocked it. If you watch the replay in slow motion, it looked like it came loose on the way up. Not complaining, though.

Re: Travel out of Bounds Play

Even if he did step out, which I do believe that he did, he was not touching the ball while he was out and Queta fouled him with the push on the hip before Barcello repossessed the ball. So even in a review, I think you'd have to say that the foul occurred before the ball was touched by the re-ente...

Re: Sucks that the NCAA tournament is cancelled. USU worked so hard to get that auto-bid

Plot twist: SDSU Frank is 12 years old and you are all arguing with him.

Another thought: USU started the season preseason #1 and ended the season as #1

Only one team left standing at the end of this season in the MW: USU

We moved up three spots over idle teams because we beat lowly SJSU? I know I've said it before, but I'm still not buying the NET's supposed cap on margin of victory at 10. Take, for example, when St. Mary's beat Arizona State by 40. They moved up from #64 to #36. I know it was only 12 games into th...

Re: How Ugly was this game?

1) We could have had a much larger lead with 8 minutes left had he come back into the game earlier. You assume that everything would have been the same with him in the game as without.

2) Points in the final 8 minutes are worth the same as points in any other part of the game.

Or we could have put Merrill back in much earlier in the 2nd half instead of guaranteeing that he wouldn't get much playing time. I never underst...
