There is no reality in which USC poaches talent from USU.

On the other hand...

A lot of this goes to “poor” recruiting and people thinking last season was a fluke and also a light schedule. Added into this is a coaching change and an unpopular coach. The people that follow closely all think USU is second to Boise State. I’m guilty of living in an Aggie bubble, but GA is a bett...

Re: State of the Aggies

Dixon's buyout was $8,000,000. Is USU in a position to offer a contract with that kind of buyout? I don't know this kind of stuff at all but can't a school make a buyout any number they want? If the coach agrees to a ridiculous amount of money as his buyout, that's on him. Not a lawyer, but usually...

Re: Wake Forest Roll Call/Tickets

I just looked at the Wake website. Shocked to see Section 7 row B seats 6 & 7 Chair-back seats available for the opener for $50 a seat.

That same seat cost $96 at the Mav. Section 104 Row 2 seats 19 & 20 against Stony Brook.

Wish I had the funds to fly out and fill those seats.

Re: Ingram?

Is it possible the transfer portal will end up hurting players more than helping them? It appears to be the case for many players that have entered. If it was set up to get rid of poaching, it isn’t working. I do think coaches see kids on the portal as more likely to transfer again. If they see clo...
