Re: Craig Thompson stepping down as Conference Commissioner

Does anyone else get the feeling he's leaving before the inevitable conference realignment crap hits the fan? I don't like the look of this at all. Seems like a guy who is leaving before the conference gets ripped apart. That said, hopefully I can have more confidence that the next guy will be bette...

Re: Obligatory attendance thread

I understand why ticket prices are what they are, but I can say that I know that is the reason why several in my social circle cannot attend. I've always thought the University should offer a job benefit to teachers in the two local school district for (heavily)discounted tickets to lower priority g...

Re: Csu and AFA not going anywhere

Noise today is that MWC is seriously looking at adding two teams from C-USA, looking like UNT and maybe Rice. We'll see. Basketball wise, UNT would be a nice pick up, two deep into the NCAA's last year, they've had some decent football (aside from getting destroyed by us a few years ago). Interesti...

Re: Csu and AFA not going anywhere

The damage this Jerk from AFA caused is not good. Do what you feel is best for your institution, but to try and drag other teams in our conference away and hurt it, is entirely self serving and selfish. To also make public comments that the AAC in effect, is a "Better conference", is something you ...

Pathetic defense

Our defense ranks 121st in the nation in total defense, giving up 463.8 yards per game. I'm not convinced that our next four games are sure wins like I'm hearing many say they are. Someone talk me off the cliff. I don't think we have faced any offensive juggernauts. Boise isn't up to snuff with the...

Re: Air Force and CSU to AAC is gaining momentum

What do they gain by that move? With what the AAC lost is it really an upward move at this point? It’s not an upward move for CSU. It’s a move that offers protection in the event BSU and SDS leave to the Big12. When the music stops the Rams will have a chair. The Aggies may have a much smaller one....

Re: Air Force opens as 11 point favorites over USU

It seems like every year we have this exact thread about the AFA game, with the prevailing thought that we'll handle them easily. We're 3-5 against them since joining the MW. I expect this to be a tough game. Definitely our toughest opponent yet.
