Re: Roster going forward — who is sticking around?

Smith may very well leave, I have no idea. But I do think mid-majors are much more likely to keep basketball coaches than football coaches for a couple of reasons: 1. The competition gap is not as big, you can legitimately have a tope 20 program and not be from a Power conference. 2. Every team has...

Re: Batman v. Superman? Smith v. Queta?

Smith with this team minus Queta would beat Duryea with this team and Queta by 25 points.

Though that probably says more about Duryea than it does about Queta or Smith.

Re: Summarizing the new transfers / recruits

I think a nice stretch goal is 6 wins and a bowl game. We should be able to go 2-2 at a minimum in our non-conference games as I don’t see us losing to either North Dakota or NMSU. Going 4-4 in league games won’t be easy but doable. May depend on which games are at home and which are away. I think ...

Re: A Look at a Potential New Depth Chart

He might affect this depth chart. I am pretty sure that wilson did not transfer because he couldnt beat out wakely. He tran...

The only one on the three pillars that I'm still in agreement with is "Locals." USU is a public school and should have representation from the state.

All this effort to setup a conference for FBS alignment. I think the P5 or maybe even P4 minus the Pac12 move themselves into a separate division away from FBS and the NCAA in 5 or so years.
