Re: 2021 Utah State Football Signing Day Central (February)

No. The best Polynesian athletes all go to Pac-12 schools. Look at Oregon versus USC in the PAC-12 championship. For some reason ...

Dang so are players just going to move around every year now? Would love Justin Rice, but it is crazy what college football has become.
I think so. This should make rebuilds easier but you could also go from a 10 win team one year to a 2 win team the next.
