So tired of hearing how much Matt loved Utah state, followed by how could he pass on this opportunity due to the money. HE WAS MAKING OVER A MILLION A YEAR IN LOGAN UTAH!!!! He may have really liked Utah State but must love money more. I have zero issue with this. I just hate hearing how hard a decision it was and how you can’t pass up this money. The money argument makes much more sense for someone making $50,000 in a job they don’t like, going to another job they may not like that pays $150,000. I have passed on several opportunities to leave the state of Utah for significantly more money, but I love living in Utah, and passed. I felt the same way towards Gary when he left after proclaiming his love. This is not just a matt Wells rant.

Wow, this is sensitive subject! People getting personal. I love usu sports. But sadly, win or lose... Millions they pay coaches. None of it truly affects my life overall. Leave it up to players. Not emotional fans.

One thing that I think is missed here is that Wells was also a former player at USU and some former players come back to be on the sidelines in a game like this. Would we tell Bobby Wagner no? What about Brian Suite? Anthony Calvillo? It would be a little weird to say some former players could come and be on the sideline but others couldn't? Just food for thought that perhaps being a coach has less to do with it than being a former player.

I have a small team of people that work for me. We have had a bunch of people leave the group and move onto bigger and better things. When that happens, I sincerely congratulate them and thank them for all of the work they did for us.

But once we have shaken hands and said goodbye we disable their IT account and remove access to any of our facilities.

Why? Not because we are vindictive or take it personally. Because they are no longer part of the team. They have different priories and motivations. They move on and so do we.

I assumed everyone operated this way?

Same here. On both accounts. Email and login accounts are disabled, personal files and access transferred, badges turned off. I thought this was the way it worked for everyone.

Agreed. That's why you grab the trade secrets before quitting, everyone knows this.

In all seriousness, don't allow him on the field. What good if any could possibly come from it?

Vindictive, spiteful, petty and pathetic is what you are. MW had an absolute right to accept a better job when the offer came.

Agreed? I never said he didn't.

He's also not our coach anymore. So why would he be on our sideline? Him or any of the coaches that have already been announced as leaving.

Of course he did. That doesn't mean he should be on the sideline with the team he just walked away from. Nothing good will come from this.

Not vindictive at all. Thank you, your badge, your personal things, good luck at Tech, thanks again, and goodbye.

Stay out of the building, away from our players and recruits, and you're not welcome on the sideline.

Well. He won’t have to drive far. Albuquerque and Lubbock aren’t that far from each other.

Not sure if this had been discussed but did the players get a vote on if Wells can be on the sidelines?

I don't think he should be on the sideline for the game. He did what was best for him and his family and it is time to move one. IMO the notion that Wells quit on us the last two games is complete rubbish. Did he do the same against Wyoming? It is a convenient way to make sense of the last two games but is simply retrospectively making sense of something that did not go well. It happens all the time in every sport.
You've articulated what I've been thinking pretty well here. Thank you.
Exactly! This is a 45 year old Man being given the opportunity of a lifetime and we think he's a turncoat? Wish him well and move on. Are we really a bunch of little kids who had their ball taken away? :headscratch: :headscratch:
Many 45-55 year old men find "opportunities of a lifetime" and they come in all different colors like blonde, brunette, or ginger. They make the choice they feel is best for them and leave their current family situation to start a new one. They are free to make that choice. It's just always awkward, and inappropriate for those men to show up to their previous family's big events right after making this life changing decision and act like everyone should be cool with it.

Since you brought up the kids aspect.
Ridiculous correlation. We can disagree, but I think this whole thing is childish and petty. I want to say to many, have you met Matt, do you know Matt personally, do you know what kind of Dad and family man he is, do you know how much he loves USU, do you know how difficult this decision was for him? You might want to talk to one of those people and gain some insight. Or not...
OR NOT is the right answer. I'm a Utah State fan; Wells is no longer Utah State. I don't want the camera focusing on him the whole game and talking about him going to Texas Tech. He should not be on the sidelines for the game; focus should be on the players and Utah State only.
I read the lionhead quote supporting Wells the person....not talking about being on the sidelines.

Yes. That doesn’t mean coaches for other teams who may be recruiting against us now, need to be on our sideline.

I hope we crush em’ so Matt Wells knows we don’t need him.

GA participated in the Utah bowl game after accepting the USU HC job.
And we, Utah State, benefited from the publicity. And in this case TT will benefit. Are you a Red Raider?
Nice spin but the deal is already done. Wells is gone bowl or no bowl. Seems like he's being a stand up guy, no reason he should be treated with anything other than respect. Since you mention publicity, how will USU look if we make a public snub? What will the incoming coaching prospects think if we tar and feather a 10 win coach?

Yea, what's that quote from Gary he (Wells) used to bastardize "we can win with you, but we certainly can win without you". Let's make sure that applies to Wells

I support John Hartwell 80% of the time now and will trust that he made the right decision to let Mr Wells on the sideline for the Bowl Game. :stirpot:
