Tune-up games

Post by BobWilson » December 15th, 2020, 8:31 pm

Time is short for announcement of another non -conference game but fortunately the schedule gives us two highly winnable games at home to begin the conference schedule. Likewise for the first two away games, although Air Force almost always gives us a tussle at their place. i would still like to see another game this week. I understand team activities have been limited during the past week. I hope individual work has continued like three-point and foul shooting.

Yesterday the USUHurd Instagram posted that the Dixie State game was cancelled but that there is a game scheduled for Friday and there are student tickets still available. They didn’t say who we were playing but I’d heard somewhere on this board that it’s likely Northern Colorado, which would be decent.

I'd be cautious viewing this as too much of a "tune-up game". Northern Colorado is a pretty good team.

Regis is really coming on strong, they are a force. In all seriousness I believe this will be a good test for us tonight. We have not played games and with COVID we need lots of reps. I think we will win, but I think they will challenge us.

They are expected to be top 3 in the Big Sky and may very will win it. One of their top players, Bodie Hume, we recruited extremely hard.

Right, and they were 22-9 last season. They lost their coach and a couple of starters, and it's a game that Utah State should win. They're a solid team though and I don't want to see Aggie fans losing their minds tonight if it's closer than they think it should be.

Agreed 100%. It’s a great tune up game in that it isn’t a gimme but if we play well we should win and it would get us ready for conference.
