Re: Nevada

I think this schedule where we play one at home, one on the road, one at home, etc. makes it hard to get right. The team is traveling between every game instead of getting to stay a week or two at home to practice and get right. That's why I posted months ago that adding a 12th team to make schedul...

Re: 2022/23 games scheduled. UCONN, Weber, Idaho State

UConn has been pretty much one of the worst FBS teams the last few years. Not impressed. However that does mean it is winnable. “Not impressed.” Huh? This is a great non conference home & home. It’s a great scheduling job done by the AD. I mean I am glad we got an American team, but they are at the...

Re: Mike Leach leaving Wazzu...

The article reads like this was a done deal during the season. Appears both Leach and MSU were discrete in holding the fresh coaching change closely so it would impact neither the WSU players nor school.
