Change of heart, We Could Make It Work

Today I was fortunate enough to go to a Notre Dame football game with my wife. (They only let students and faculty in). And although it felt good being there and watching football, I couldn’t help but think “The MWC could make this work. Utah State could make this work.” The biggest issue I see is w...

Re: Packers QB depth chart

It took about two years in the program here at USU to get Jordan where he needed to be. There's nothing wrong if it takes Jordan around the same amount of time to grow into his role in the NFL.

On the bright side, J-Love did play well in his last scrimmage. Especially in the two minute drill.

Re: Season being further reduced to division games only?

The big concern of playing football in the spring has been players not wanting to take the beating of a full spring season, then turn around and play in the fall. While 12 games in spring followed by 12 in fall may be alot to ask, or even 8 conference games in spring, I don't think it would be as h...

Re: Damuni to BYU

Honestly I could see a kid not wanting to play on a team where your dad works. Nobody wants to be “Coaches son” or “he only plays cause his dad’s coach.

I’ll respect the kids decision no matter what the reasoning was. Except if he thinks they’ll be a better team than us. That’s just asinine.

I think many of you are underselling Shelley. He is capable of doing more than just managing the offense. I see big play ability if Bodie can utilize his skills well.
You might be right. Gary brought him in for a reason. He might end up being better than Colombi after all.

I know there’s been a lot of discussion about Comlobi’s departure and Shelly’s ability to carry the team, but I’ve realized that the offense will only go as far as this OL takes them.
