Re: Bad look for Colorado State...

In the current atmosphere, it almost doesn't matter if it's true or not. Which is horrifying, really. It now appears that all CSU football related activities are suspended until further notice. I suspect that CSU will not have a football season. In the short term, this is terrible news for USU. We l...

Re: YBU is our first game of the season, will it happen?

A modest proposal: It appears that CSU may not be playing football this season. So, let BYU take CSU's spot, with the following conditions: All MWC-BYU games are home games for the MWC teams, including USU, with no change in the location of future games. All revenue for said games goes to the MWC. I...

Yeah. It's going to be hard to win more than about 7 regular season games this year. It does set us up for 2021 though. That year we should have a much softer schedule, with tons of returning talent. I think we'll have a 9+ win season that year.
