My main concern with Bean or Fonz playing the 3 is defense. They both will have a hard time guarding quicker guys.

Re: New basketball venue for usu

Nothing is getting done in the current economic situation in college athletics, especially spending millions. In reality, there is a good chance that many of our coaches are taking pay cuts this year. Given the situation, a new stadium won't be on the horizon for 7-10 years.

Depending on the transfer we get, this could be a very exciting Utah State team.

As far as the season, they should move the start of the season to January and have May Madness, which they should have done several years ago. I would imagine this is being discussed.
