USU IN 2013… SO FAR Next List » 16 of 16 « Prev
They lost their head coach, but the Aggies still carried plenty of momentum from their critical 2012 campaign. However, the 2013 record has been mediocre (2-2) as the team focuses more on its new league (Mountain West Conference). Many stars have moved on to the NFL (five in two years — the most in that time span in recent memory). In 2011, one did early in running back Robert Turbin.

Especially in the FBS today, the Aggies may not experience a bowl-less season. But what will be USU’s trend in the next decade? Its promoted coordinator (Matt Wells) seems more loyal than his predecessor. As important as Franchione and Andersen were in reviving the TCU and USU programs, is Wells the Aggies’ Patterson?

Using the TCU program early this century as a measuring stick, regardless of what happens this season, the USU program might be seeing its best years yet.
