Re: Sam Merrill granted another year

Everything I'm seeing is that it's just for Spring sports right now...I'm also not sure he'd come back. Yeah he won't be back. But it is fun to tease New Mexico and SDSU about it. SDSU isn't upset in the slightest. They've been pushing for it. The discussion over there is about how scholarships and...

Re: SDSU is a great team

i guess there's something to be happy about if going 1-2 against SDSU meant that 1 win will guarantee an at large bid (8/9 seed). SDSU was playing for region, nothing else.

Re: Beat em in the tournament

If we win out the rest of the games, make the MW championship as the #2 seed and lose to an undefeated or maybe 1 loss SDSU team, I think we still make the tournament, but probably end up in a play in game as an 11 seed. That's a lot of "ifs ". Especially for a team that has won exactly one road ga...

The ONLY thing you can take from the SDSU-Weber game is that the SDSU Defensive Down Lineman are not as bad as was presumed in the preseason. Nothing else can be gleaned.
