I was not aware that he was that old. Good luck to him, I always liked and respected Rahe.

Shocked he never ended up head coach at USU, for better or worse.

I was surprised as well that we didn't go after him when Stew retired. Would have, IMO, been the better choice than Duryea, but perhaps Rahe had no interest.

He likely would have became our head coach if we had lost Stew to Utah in 2004 like we feared. Think about it, we had an interim AD so promoting the assistant would have been the easiest and safest choice. That, and our win over Ohio State and 3 point loss to National runner up Kansas were fresher on our minds in contrast to the first round losses to teams that lost their next game.

That would have likely altered the futures of several teams. You do have to wonder if Randy, as our head coach, would have given in and scheduled JUST ONE big school a year like we were critical of Stew for not doing. Likely, Damian Lillard ends up being an Aggie instead of a Wildcat, and you would have to wonder if Randy would have been able to ride him to just one NCAA win or even a sweet sixteen, and parlayed that into a bigger job. And maybe Damian, after going through the frustration of having to ride in vans to Logan High to practice, would have donated money for a new practice facility, and the facility would be called the Damian Lillard Center instead of the Wayne Estes Center.

This would have also altered the paths of Weber and LA Tech. Obviously, without the ability to hire Randy with him at USU, it's likely they instead hire Kerry Rupp, who seemed like a good pick based on his credentials at Utah and Indiana. Maybe he only lasts four years at Weber, or maybe the Big Sky is weak enough for him to get some wins and last longer.

Without Kerry Rupp being Louisiana Tech's coach, Curtis Condie isn't an assistant and the kids sitting in the seats Curtis and his wife used to sit don't get handed money before the game. But maybe that instead happens to different kids who are in those seats when we play Weber.

And maybe La Tech has a different coach today if the timing of coaches doing bad enough to be fired, or good enough to be hired away, was different.

This also would have possibly affected UVU and BYU. There is a chance Weber opens up, with Rupp finally doing poor enough to be fired, before UVU does, so Weber hires the hot BYU assistant Mark Pope, forcing UVU to hire someone else when Dick Hunsaker retires with Pope at Weber. So likely BYU never has the inexplicable home loss to UVU, but instead loses at home to Weber ending their perfect record at home against them at some point. Of course, BYU is still in a position to pluck Pope away from Weber if he is there, but Pope also could have done well enough at Weber to be plucked away by someone higher on the food chain than BYU. But then again, maybe Weber deciding after it doesn't work out with local assistant Rupp decided not to go the local assistant route with Pope.

I would guess that had stew retired when he should have, like 2012 or 2013, we would have hired Rahe. He would have just been coming off the Lillard glory years. But by the time stew decided to hang them up Rahe was no longer an up and coming coach.

By my calculations Randy has about 25 years in the state of Utah employees Pension. Now it’s his time to enjoy his golden years. He is definitely one of the good guys.

There once was an article wrote how if Florida's quarterback Chris Leak one year gained one more yard on a play, it would have altered the paths of several football teams.
