Re: Athletic Directors Should Resign

I'm just glad here at Utah State we are concerned for the health and well being of our "student" athletes. The regular students can go #$$&_# yourselves and die of covid. And how many college age students with no underlying health issues have died of covid? Are they supposed to hide in the basement...

Does USU pay health insurance for them? Otherwise it would be one of the worse places to be at, financially speaking.
And the best place to be if you happen to get the virus
I think you meant that it is the best place to be if you WANT to get the virus.

Re: Sam Vecenie on Sam Merrill: "I think he's gonna get picked"

I think there are similarities between Merrill and Luke Babbitt. Though Babbitt was on the radar even in high school and entered the draft at a younger age they share some assets valuable to an NBA team. Both are knockdown 3 point shooters. Both are coachable and disciplined on and off the court. T...

Re: The Shot...from my viewpoint

Hadn't noticed this before, but at about the :20 second mark an Aztec brushed Brito as he was crouched on the floor and Diogo seems to have taken offense and was starting after him and the ref stepped in. Nothing intentional, but just perhaps Diogo's emotions were running at the red line at that mo...
