IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME

Post by rAggie » December 11th, 2020, 11:04 pm

To give us something else to talk about other than Tire Fire 2020, if you could go back two years ago and hire any of the then candidates to coach the Aggies, who would you have hired and what would the results have been? Bonus points if you talk about the butterfly effect of them not having coached elsewhere.

I’ll get the obvious one out of the way: USU hires Jay Hill. He was 34-25 at the time coming off a Big Sky championship. The seeds of him being a program builder were there. Hill comes in his first season at USU and the talent drain from previous year still is apparent, but USU picks up a win during the season and wins bowl game finishing 8-5 instead of 6-7.

This year, capitalizing on a very talented RB core, and utilizing the dual threat talents of Henry Colombi, USU loses a close one to Boise but wins out the rest of the season, and is invited to a bowl game.

Butterfly effect is minimal, Weber’s impact on the world is no different if they are .500 or if they are national champions.

I wanted Jay Hill as well but that scenario is covered so I'll do another one.

We promote David Yost to Head Coach. Have the same win-loss results, but are competitive in losses to Air Force and BYU, but have stupid penalties. Have the BYU game come down to an offensive pass interference call, and we complain about Mitch Matthews always doing alot worse and getting away with it.

This season, still start out 0-3, but are in the games through 3 quarters. Get the win over Fresno, and put the New Mexico game away earlier. Lose to Air Force while putting up 3 touchdowns but giving up 6.

And Matt Wells is hated worse by Texas Tech fans since he has a downgrade an offensive coordinator.

Yeah we'd be in much better shape had Jay Hill been named the coach. It is a shame he wasn't, but had Gary not been brought back, Hartwell goes east for the hire. Matt Canada or Chip Lindsey would have been the type of guy hired in 2018.
