Re: Looks like the Big 12 is giving it a go for the Fall

BYU-P and Nebraska in talks with BIG12 about joining for football. If that happened and they have a season Aggie fans heads might explode. Cockett and Hartwell will be run out of town. What’s in that arrangement for the B12? They already will play 9 conference games. They don’t like to do OOC after...

Re: No College Football this fall according to 2 P5 ADs

Idiots, all of them. They can’t admit these players aren’t fully amateurs, so they can’t put them in a bubble. And they also think the world’s fittest 20 year olds are going to die from this virus. I'm 100% in this camp. This is about cases of CV19 now, not deaths. Yes, people will get the virus, b...

Re: 2021 and beyond

Now that the P5 have all announced, what about USU and the MWC?

The hopes for Hartwell to produce a P5 home and home out of the wreckage of everyone else's schedule are now dead, after the B12's plus-one announcement. Most of them are now going to have to shed an existing game rather than add somebody new (as they might have done if they'd stayed as 12 and had t...

Quick question about Stastny: is he LDS?

It doesn't matter to me if he is or isn't. But this has been a helpful niche for USU in...

Verrry close call here -- LSU was our biggest OOC win in a long, long time, and the guts and fight it took to come back from 19 to win that game, without Queta, was amazing. The Nevada game was the final step in removing them from the pedestal they'd been on for a couple of MWC seasons, revenge for ...
