Zahar Vedishev

A coaches job is to recruit the best 13-15 players he can and then let them compete for playing time. Someone has to lose that battle and will not get minutes and eventually either ride the pine or transfer out. That doesn’t mean they were a miss necessarily. It’s just a dynamic that every single te...

Re: Unannounced RM's

Otto Tia from Northridge HS, UT. Will play WR. Jack Rigby from Davis HS, UT. Will play TE. Do you anticipate either Tia or Rigby seeing the field this season? I'd be surprised if Rigby did considering we have 3-4 solid TE's on the roster. Tia at WR intrigues me a bit seeing as he is a 6'3" WR with ...

IMO those hoping or counting on Zapala to be any kind of consistent contributor are going to be very disappointed. That includes Smith then cause in his own words Zapala “is going to be a star”.

Re: Tomorrow is a really big game

Tonight is CSU's 4th road game in 7 days so it'd really be impressive if they can come into the Spectrum and win. If we win tonight and sweep CSU, I believe the conference title will likely come down to USU and Boise. Seeing as Boise still has to play SDSU and CSU, it will be interesting to see if t...

The CBS Sports one is interesting as it has the Mountain West getting 4 teams in. Boise gets 9 seed, then CSU, USU, and SDSU get 11 seeds, with USU and SDSU both in separate play-in games. I can't figure out how CSU would avoid the play-in game but we wouldn't, especially since it was updated today....

I think it’d take a pretty special job and fit to get him to leave. I’ve always worried about an upper Midwest P5 program snatching him up though. Someone like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa State, Iowa, or Nebraska. Although Nebraska is awful, I think Hoiberg will be given more time to build. Petino is...

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.
