Re: Time to shut down the forum

Nice job in building the biggest straw man this board has ever seen. Too bad you don’t have any matches to burn in down.

Value of USU Football

i Don’t live in Utah anymore but each passing year I’m more and more appreciative of the value that is USU. I don’t think there are many better bargains in college sports. A beautiful stadium, great product on the field over the last 10 years. Hope to see even more people take advantage this season ...

Re: Love’s Throwing Motion

I wasn’t able to see the game as I’m out of country. I was curious to not see more of the loss out on Love’s shoulders given 3 INTs. Most teams don’t win games with 3 ints. Was he pressing or were they flukey?

I was surprised he wasn’t a bit better. Middle of the TE pack in the 40 (4.73 - he sure looks faster on tape) and low end on bench. He was strong in shuttle. Given he won’t be 3 down TE with strength and blocking I’ll bet he goes late 3rd to early 5th.
