Re: "Fell into"

Fell into is interesting. It is easy to say Sam Merrill was a given for Utah State, but what about after the coaching change in 2018? He had played at USU for two years where the team wasn't good and there certainly was not many believing in the Summer of 2018 that we were going to be a team that wo...

Re: NBA

I don't care if the players decide to go or stay home. I won't be watching them either way. I can't wait. It will be exciting to have basketball back and I am curious about how it all plays out. No fans and no travel fatigue will lead to guys that usually don't normally play well stepping up. Think...

Re: I am starting to doubt it happens.....

Yes, deaths are down and that is good, but it won't last that long. Why? Cases are up the last couple of weeks, hospitalizations are up, which means in about 2 weeks deaths will be up.

Re: Utah State basketball to change program name

Obviously if Smith doesn't go after a local player that turns out to be great somewhere else that will be worthy of criticism. In general though, he should get the best players he can find. I believe Smith is trying to get the best players he can and if he does that, I don't care where they come from.
