Jeff Choate

I only mention this because he was a name that was discussed heavily here, but Jeff Choate has accepted the special teams coordinator job at Texas.

Re: Stacy Collins to Boise State

It would appear that Boise has a thing for former USU coaches. They've got 2 on the football staff and 1 on the basketball staff.

Re: SDSU game 1 predictions

Vegas has USU as 1.5 pt favorites tonight. It might just be my pessimism playing in, but I feel like that's a fair bet on SDSU. All they have to do is win, which I give them a 50% chance of doing.

Regardless it should be a low scoring affair as both teams have good defenses.

Will he play DE for us then? Hopefully he's a bit bigger now than 225 if so.

Also, as a sophomore in 2020, with the wacky 2020 rules does that mean he has 2 to play 2 or 3 to play 3?
