Go easy on him my Aggie brothers. He is just letting us know that we are still in the running for a pretty good recruit.
It's true, but this kid is not going to pick Utah State.

Re: I am starting to doubt it happens.....

Re: Hale Motu’apuaka

To be honest I've actually become quite optimistic about the D-line as time has gone on. IF Marcus Moore is and can remain healthy, I think there's some decent size, talent, & depth there.

The depth is key because we can rotate guys plenty to help ensure they stay fresh throughout the game.

Re: Conversation w/a MWC School FB Player

I believe this to be true. But what about attendance? And before anyone suggests allowing attendance but not at capacity- how do you then decide who gets to come and who doesn't? Which season ticket holders get to attend and which don't?

Significant Speed Upgrade on Defense

I have to think that next year we'll see quite a bit more speed on the field on the defense. 1) Moving Lefeged to LB will add a ton of speed. In addition to Lefeged at the SPUR position, his backups Gilliam & Thompson will also be fast for LB's. 2) Addition of CJ Pollard. Original 4 star recruit who...

This was alluded to another thread, but after looking at Gath's stats and seeing he's a 25% shooter from 3pt area, it's weird that we get so excited about guys that shoot worse than Miller/Brito/Porter. And add to that his assist to turnover ration is 1:1. Having said that, I would be glad to land ...
