Re: Lots of offers going out today

Re: Attending New Mexico game

Any word on if our football team is planning on attending? I saw a video of the equipment trailer pulling out of Logan, so I’m pretty sure the team will attend the game. But the real question should be which team will show up? My preference would be the team that went on the road and played well ag...

Re: Young

He is starting as a freshman at RB for one of the best teams in the state. I don’t have a problem with that offer. Oh by the way, he lives in Bountiful. He was recruited to play at East.

Re: Anybody who paid $43 to watch this game in 30 degree temps must feel like a sucker

Last night was the first time that I have left an Aggie game at halftime since the blizzard game against BYU when I was a little kid. I just couldn’t justify staying any longer. As it was I didn’t get home until 12:30am. We got some tots from Sweeto Burrito and walked out as the band was playing. I ...

Yes, Eberle was coached by Bohn in CA. Bohn has been really good to us. Nick Diaz, Eberle, our current punter (Bartolic). We also had a HS kicker come a couple of weeks ago on an unofficial visit that works out with Brad.

I think we had 8 turnovers at the half, and the box score says 9 for the game. So much better ball control in the 2nd half.
