One thing that interests me is that he is making over 800k, what is our availability for pay? over 900?
looks like it's 1MM/year we are offering:

Hiring from Arkansas State worked out for Boise. Also, I think the SunBelt is underrated as a conference.
Hugh Freeze and Gus Malzhan both went 10-3 there and then the next year Harsin was 7-5. That seemed to work out all right for Boise State. Anderson has kept it at a pretty consistent level his whole tenure there at right about 8 wins a year. Not sure what to think about this hire, but I could get on board. Averaging 8 wins a year at USU would be pretty good.

Who else had a sneaky suspicion that our next coach would come from the south?...it's just where Hartwell has the most connections.

Aren't he and Wells good friends? I seem to remember them both talking about how long they had known each other and that they stay in touch.
Wells worked with him on Adam Kennedy's transfer in 2014. Found Adam a nice landing spot where he could compete for the starting job. I'm sure Matt had good things to say about Blake when talking to John Hartwell.

Back to Adam Kennedy and 2014. We would go on to have four different starting QBs that year and if Adam had stayed in Logan he would have been our starting QB.

Not only that, but his check really checks a box for Hartwell IMO in that he landed a great hire for his resume. He just hired away a coach that many perceive as a lateral move.

Was he the coach when we lost at ASU? One of the most embarrassing losses of my fandom. And there have been plenty of bad ones.

Blake & Matt Wells are very good friends.

There's a lot of pressure at Tech to fire Yost. I have to wonder if there's a chance now Yost becomes the OC again.
I'd take him back

It sounds like Anderson runs his offenses his way. Yost might not be balanced enough but just looking at stats arkansas state has put up a lot of points. I'm far more concerned about getting the defense right. That is when USU has had success.

Not to re-litigate this, but Utah State fans were wanting Wells gone and he gave us our best football years ever.
I'm still glad he's gone. Until 2018 it was nothing but a downward trend. Don't know about this guy but he's been pretty consistent until 2020. I don't like how many points and rushing yards his teams give up though. Hope he picks a damn good coordinator and maintains the missionary and poly recruiting so we can have a D-line.
Relevantly, look how MW has done at his new job and how much TT fans like him. Ugh, not a really exciting hire.

Anderson's excitement for the job seems to have worn off a bit at Arkansas State. If we get that guy this could be a bit of a dud. However, if we get a renewed reenergized Blake Anderson with some solid coordinators- this could be a home run hire.

He is still only 51 years old.

I love ya! Quite honestly, I'm not going to be that guy that tells you your opinion is wrong. Will be interesting to see how it all plays out though. I'm know we both are hoping for USU to be successful and I think this hire will grow on you. We shall see....

Thats TBD. I think it would be safe to say its a less risky hire. That doesn't necessarily equate to better.

Arkansas State @ Utah State in 2006

Post by dogie » December 10th, 2020, 11:53 am

Does anyone else remember the ASU-USU game in Logan on 2016? The Aggies took a 24-0 lead less than one minute into the second quarter. The Aggies didn’t look good at all and held on to win 34-20.

The main thing I remember from that game was thinking that ASU looked as bad as any FBS team I have seen in Logan.

If they weren’t the worst team, they were certainly the most undisciplined (except for maybe a couple of Brent Guy teams). ASU was penalized 18 times for 129 yards, and there were a lot of crazy penalties showing that the players weren’t focused on wining the game. The worst was that it was clear that the ASU coach was practically encouraging it.

That’s all I know about ASU and their coach.

Yeah that game personified Wells coaching when he got a lead and didn't say much for ASU. The Aggies attempt to give the game away combined with ASU's refusal to take it is all I remember. I remember they beat the Aggies the year before in a game involving FGs and big plays called back or wasted.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but what are the reasons that this is a better hire than Jay Hill. I can't say one is better or worse.

Jay Hill has local connections and knowledge (not a necessity). He's done well at Weber State, I think better comparatively than Ark State during that same time.

Blake Anderson has been very consistent down there and seems to have ok recruiting classes about on par with Utah State. Nothing spectacular though. He's already an FBS coach and not just FCS.

How is one significantly better than the other?

Because a lot of people on this board never look outside of the state. I am glad this hire is from somewhere different and opens up new channels. I think Anderson can also build broader and better staff than Hill.

Back to Adam Kennedy and 2014. We would go on to have four different starting QBs that year and if Adam had stayed in Logan he would have been our starting QB.
Was that the year we had 5 different players throw a touchdown pass (I think we had a WR throw a pass on a play that game - Pennyman?). That has to be some kind of record, doesn't it?

Makes sense to me. His connections and experience in the south could benefit the team for sure. As long as the due diligence has been done, then I could totally support this hire.

Yes AState fans are ready. We went through Wendy getting sick the first time and apparently cured. Then the second time that ended with her death days before the season started.

He needs a reset and he had told a number of people worst part of his job is going home. Then he got Covid and the year has been utter chaos.

We need a reset as well.

Thanks for coming on and giving some explanation. I think this could be a fantastic hire for USU, but some people are nervous because you guys seem happy to have him gone and he’s 4-7 this season.

You just explained exactly why that’s the case though and why I think we should still be happy about the potential here.

Does anyone else remember the ASU-USU game in Logan on 2016? The Aggies took a 24-0 lead less than one minute into the second quarter. The Aggies didn’t look good at all and held on to win 34-20.

The main thing I remember from that game was thinking that ASU looked as bad as any FBS team I have seen in Logan.

If they weren’t the worst team, they were certainly the most undisciplined (except for maybe a couple of Brent Guy teams). ASU was penalized 18 times for 129 yards, and there were a lot of crazy penalties showing that the players weren’t focused on wining the game. The worst was that it was clear that the ASU coach was practically encouraging it.

That’s all I know about ASU and their coach.
I do remember that game from 2016, it is interesting to look at that season for Arky St. They lost their first four games (including USU and an FCS school) then finished the season 8-1 and won the Sun Belt. I wonder what the story was behind that turnaround. I also wonder what happened this season, they started out 3-2 beating Kansas State on the road and then just fell apart.
