Re: Gary or Hartwells Fault?

I’ve shared this opinion before and people are quick to reply with the “his hands were tied argument”. But I still believe Hartwell is responsible to hire the right coach. Yes when donors and Presidents have bad ideas it is the job of the AD to set them right. We missed a monumental opportunity to b...

Re: Boise trying to leave mwc

Maybe the MWC needs to think outside the box and invite some of the better AAC teams to join with us - add an "eastern division." Or at least get Gonzaga and St. Mary's to join in Basketball. The latter option would add some major prestige to the conference and eliminate the WCC as a viable landing...

I could be wrong but I think if we had some lock down corners it would change the whole dynamic of the defense.

Re: USU defense just as good as Florida vs LSU

I think the Defense is getting better every week, even the DBs held their own considering it was a high powered passing attack. if we could just get some adrenaline injected into the the offense.
Side note -I’d play two money games per year if we could have Aranda back.
