Re: Unscientific poll on where Aggies live

Denver, CO here and I wish I could go to more games. I'm down in Castle Rock. I try to make a few games in Logan a year. I'm also the new USU Alumni Rocky Mountain Chapter President. I usually make it down to the AFA/CSU away game, and I try to hit Wyoming/UNM, but I haven't made it to those lately.

Re: Frisco bowl it is!

The negativity on here about our bowl is hilarious. We are a historically crappy and generally poorly supported football team that had a mediocre season this year. Overall, I'm happy with the bowl; it's exactly what we deserve. I'm guessing that OKAggie and YBA will be able to attend...? The players...

Re: NAR: Bobo reportedly out at CSU

I'm not the least bit surprised by this, though I am surprised that he made it another year tbh.

I went to the USU/CSU game last year, where I sat behind enemy lines, and the CSU faithful were already, visibly fed-up with Bobo.

I also chimed-in with some disguised Bobo rants. :stirpot:

Re: Where will our bowl game be?

I wish we could have played ybu at the beginning of the season and not have played LSU at all. I think we would have been 8-4 right now instead of 7-5. Here's a very unpopular opinion: I'd rather play in two money games each year than one. I'd take 6-6 and an extra $1.2M (or whatever) for east side...

Re: Where will our bowl game be?

I have a lot of confidence we would have also won 9 games with SDSU’s schedule. But if USU had SDSU’s schedule, it would include a game against USU.

Disgraceful Defensive Dump

I don't know how DJ Williams got back into the game on defense after single-handedly, bone-headedly screwing the one iota of momentum that we managed to drum up in the second quarter. We put him back in the game just a few game minutes after he took a huge dump on all of the work that our hobbled de...
