Re: USU-BYU Series Extended

Why do we continue to bail BYU out? Let’s stop the series, and schedule a P5 program instead of a G5. They put together a full schedule of new games as an independent weeks before the 2020 season started after almost every other game previously scheduled was canceled at the last minute.

Re: Ranked 138th best recruiting class in 2021

Wow, I had expected our class to be far better. I had heard really nice things and now there is this. The 130s isn’t going to cut it. I hope this new staff will pick up steam a lot sooner than later. We are already in the cellar and I don’t want to become a dweller.

Re: Verdict on Cockett to be released Friday

Real simple. If the claims that our Footballs teams leadership said are true, It’s best that she step down. If she did not she should stay. If she stays she should render a comment where she makes it clear that bigotry and racism have no place at U-State. At that point we should all move on.
