Re: Let’s schedule a “1 and done” at Utah this year.

I was on the executive board of the Ole big blue club and pushed to play games in SLC so aggie alums could go and enjoy, we never got as much support as I had hoped for, and it pissed off a lot of cache valley season ticket holders. As an alum who lives about 15 minutes from the Jazz arena, I never...

Why would we go for it? I'd rather we played pretty much any other PAC12 or BIG12 school in an away one and done than Utah. Hell no. Why in the world would we do that??? Worst idea I have heard for awhile. We are better than they are. We are in the top 25 (probably)... not them. Why even think of g...

Re: Aggie legends podcast with David Collette is up

Yep. He said he broke NCAA rules by having friends and family members contact the U. They in turn reciprocated that contact and offered him a scholarship illegally. We all knew that was the case, but now that he's no longer an NCAA athlete he freely admits it. The podcast guys even tried to give hi...

I like the idea of a PG, but he needs to be very good and especially good against a press. We actually seemed to move the ball fairly well in the half court. We struggled against the press which created a ton of turnovers down the stretch. My fear with “getting a PG” is that we’d be getting one jus...

Two things: The turnover argument is exactly right for distributors who make semi-risky passes that lead to a lot of high-percentage shots and a fair number of turnovers along the way.
