Re: First Schedule Date...

It's at Weber on December 22nd. The utes just released their schedule.

I wonder if it's part of a 2-for-1 deal to get the wildcats in SLC for a couple of years. Normally, it would be a RPI boost as a road win over a reasonably good team. This year, I think it's going to hurt them.

Re: USU Athletics Future

The phrase that came out a lot after our last bout with independence was "Any port in a storm." It was something of a salve to make us feel better for having to "slum" in the Sun Belt. But the truth is that we were sinking as an independent. Without the Sun Belt conference, as awkward as it was, we ...

Re: Is it time to consider football independence?

The conferences never fill their tie-ins. There's always room for a 7-5 team or better. USU's bowl chances at 7-5 are no better in the WAC. This is exactly what we were thinking 10 years ago. The trouble is it's almost impossible to win 7 games a year when you can only play 5 of them at home in a 1...

Re: Is it time to consider football independence?

Yes it's difficult to get last week of nov., early dec., games on the schedule. I can't see why USU couldn't put an FCS team in that slot and schedule the FBS teams for earlier in the season. OKAggie summed it up nicely. While a few minor things have changed, the overall picture has not. If indepen...

Re: Is it time to consider football independence?

Not just heck no. I'm sure we could find a home for the non-revenue sports, but it would kill the football program. The WAC may only have one bowl game after 2011, but at least it's one. And it's amazing how many of your closest scheduling partners disappear when you're trying to get those late Octo...

Re: UVU offers to start FB Program if Invited...

While I agree that the idea is far-fetched, deep down inside it really disturbs me. If Utah Valley decides it can pull together $3M annually in private funding for any reason - even to build and run a football program - they will bury us in 5 years. The Big Blue Scholarship Fund just reported raisin...

Re: TrueAggie's prophecies coming true?

I don't like the author's assumption that just because a football program is independent, they should be considered part of this elite program. Notre Dame could pull it off, maybe even the BY. But I don't see Army and Navy having the resources to compete on that level if the game changes that much. ...

This has absolutely nothing to do about what the coach says. It's all about what has been decided by the fans who were there and who are free of the need to lace their comments with politics and tact.

You must pick a side because there can be only one!

Re: Auburn's preview of Utah State

Come on treesap, don't run over the dogma.

Who cares what the origins are? The Bushwhackers don't mean anything.

It's only natural that the students assign meaning that adds cultural relevance to otherwise random movements whose origins are lost in the mists of time.

Re: Utah State NEEDS to Get Out of the WAC!!!

As obnoxious as some of the fans are, I don't think the MWC is withholding an invitation to us just because of some perceived inferiority. It's simply a matter of them not needing another member that's just like all the rest. When our value as a member exceeds the role of "another mouth to feed," we...
