Re: INNOCENT!

I expect future potentially tenuous meetings like this disaster will be properly recorded and with a firm itinerary published in advance. The lingering recriminations, emotions and finger pointing are so non beneficial and negative to Utah State University and our school president.

Re: Cash Gilliam

Seems we've had little good fortune with the 4 down linemen set. As has been noted here, the 6-3/4 275 lb plus D Ends are in high demand and short supply, so at USU we moved to a 3 - 4 set. This offers some stunting options for a defense that may be out maned by heavier, bulkier O linemen. In 2019 w...

It's usually best to know what the competition (the enemy) is up to. I even keep a casual eye on the pair of schools south of Ogden.
