John Ralston

I didn’t realize that John Ralston finished his career as the SJSU coach. As many will know, Ralston is a College Football Hall of Fame coach and started his head coaching career at USU from 1959-1962. Those were the Aggie glory days that still might be unmatched with Merlin Olsen and two conference...

It’s traditionally been difficult to recruit against Stanford. Just an observation.

But maybe any school in California is at a disadvantage when going up against schools in states that are likely to have an ordinary sports season next year.
