Re: USU to the Big 12

People forget in these conference realignment scenarios that you're always going to have teams rise to the top and teams fall to the bottom. When you play two revenue generating sports that have wins associated with the outcome, it's inevitable that you'll have teams that are "losers" or "outcasts" ...

The only thing I'm curious about is having 5 senior WRs and we have none committed and don't appear to be recruiting them very hard.
That's equally a concern for me too, my dear Aggie brother. :cheers:

Re: 16.5 Point underdog to Wazzu

I think 2-0 is more likely than 1-1 this year, with a proven QB and upgraded defense. QB proven at Arkansas State, yes. Unproven at Utah State with this staff. Upgraded defense? In theory, yes, but not yet proven on the field. Folks, look at our returning starters from last season and you can see w...

This isn’t what ESPN thinks. It’s a selection of what other coaches in the conference think.

I like Ashworth, but this is a big concern at this point. So is the SF position. Even IF Miller is healed, I doubt it's completely healed. Back problems don't go away easily.
