Re: Interesting GA article.

I’ve said this before, but I really believe that Robinson fully turned on USU with the Gensel thing. Gensel is a close personal friend of his, and he was very angry (perhaps rightfully so, I still haven’t heard all the details) and has since done everything he can to paint Hartwell in a negative lig...

Re: Bodie Reeder

I hope he does well and works his way back into the coaching ranks. He always came across to me as a really good, hard working dude who really wanted to win, but he clearly wasn’t ready to be taking over an offense. Auburn will be a good spot for him.

Re: Wyoming Beat Nevada Both Times

It's pretty incredible to me how many great coaches are in the Mountain West right now. Jeff Linder was an excellent hire by Wyoming, I agree that I think he's got them on the upswing.

Re: Doubleheaders v. home/home

Typically with a normal MW schedule, teams will play on, say, Wednesday, then have a full, hard practice on Thursday, a light practice with film on Friday, and a shoot around on Saturday. Now with just a day between games the full practice goes out the window. 90% of adjustments that teams are makin...

Re: Keegan Andersen

I know that USU has had several cases of claimed nepotism in recent years (Luke Wells, the Finkbeiners, Tarvish, etc.), but I think that in all of those instances you can at least make the case for the party in question to be qualified the job. They at least had backgrounds in their hired position a...

Re: Volleyball schedule

I absolutely love attending USU volleyball games and I think they made an absolute home run hire for the new head coach. Can’t wait to see what he can do.

And I could be wrong, but I do believe the plan is to play their games in the Spectrum this season.

This is a massive, MASSIVE get. Rice was the preseason MW DPOY and transferred when it looked like the MW season was going to be canceled. He's an instant starter, and very well may be an NFL guy. I'm so hyped about this, what a get by Anderson.
