Re: Mountain West TV streaming

I watched it through the LiveStream app on the Roku. Thought it was a great feed. One of the first times I've watched a game and had to listen to AL's call. Made me realize how much you'd miss or get wrong if you only listened to a game on the radio

Wasn't Jojo expelled by USU? I don't think Matt had a say or choice in that one.

Re: SDSU Schedule to Date

So how did the game turn out? Did USU beat them? Was USU close? Is SDSU vastly overrated and USU underrated or did SDSU deserve their wins and USU has deserved all of our losses? Sorry, I'm not trying to gloat over saying we shouldn't have won but I'm very pissed with the way our team is this year ...

Re: SDSU Schedule to Date

On the same point I think we were favored in 2 of the games that we lost (Air Force, CSU). If we were to have won those two games we would be sitting at 5-2. The fact is that SDSU is winning those games and we aren't. I think our team has the talent to compete with SDSU but do we have the desire an...

yeah, we got our butts kicked last year. Just pointing out that I personally had been giving SDSU too much credit based on their record alone this year. They could be really great but it's hard to say for sure since their SOS is so bad.

SDSU Schedule to Date

SDSU is 6 -1, impressive. Looking back at their schedule though, they really haven't been tested much. San Diego's Strength of Schedule right now is 126th. USU's is 82nd. Based on sagarin right now, we'd be favored to win versus 5 of the 7 opponents SDSU has played so far. The point I'm making isn't...

Another criticism that is brought up is that Matt tends to take his foot off the gas when we have a lead. Well, I took a look at that for the past four years.

Re: Don't you at least try to put the ball in the end zone .

I didn't think that was a big deal. We had the lead, getting ball back at start of second half. How do we punt from the 37 yard line on 4th and 7 down a touchdown late in the fourth!? That was far more egregious in my opinion. Glad we felt pushing CSU back 17 yards was worth not trying to score and ...

In the Weber game, Mays got a lot of yards by bouncing outside after the holes didn't open up in the middle. It worked because he was faster and stronger than the Weber players.
