Re: Chairback thingies in the stadium

Yes, bringing a infant should cause some concern, because most folks would not bring a infant to a game I know I never did. I'm not telling you not to bring a infant but it would be unusual I would think. I brought all of my 4 kids since at least the age of 1. They had a great time with the pre-gam...

Re: Myers Interview

They will not hold kids out to avoid injury, in the first game they need to check out 2's under fire to see how they preform if they are really close to the starter.

Re: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

I agree with most of your post however USU needs to find a way to play constant decent football, that requires more than just firing the coach. I was very disappointed with USU fans, and alums when they did not step up as I had hoped when G.A. was here, followed by a hire which I was not in favor of...
