LA Tech played a good game. Aggies were amazingly tough down the stretch with
Pooh Williams having a monster second half.This sets up a great
bracket buster game Saturday. Here's to making it 12 in a row stew!Go Big Blue!!!
What a great game to watch. Although, my voice would feel better if it wouldn't
have been so close. Pooh rocked in this game. The Aggies showed great
toughness and maturity.p.s. did anyone else see the awesome screen
Jardine put on Guyton when he was in the full-court press against Quayle? That
was hilarious! Opposing guards, take note - if you press the Aggs, you'd better
watch where you're going or you'll get a back adjustment courtesy of Brady
Jardine or Tai Wesley.
Pooh's 3 pointer in transition was the turning point of the game. Thank you boys
for making my 21st birthday the best ever. Now let's finish up the season with a
WAC championship and play hard in the tourney.GO AGGIES!!!!
Wish I could have seen this game! Way to go Aggies! Keep up your
Seriously, the Aggies needed someone to come up big at the end of that game and
without his play in the last 7 or so minutes Utah State would not have won. After that 3 pointer and the successive eruption of pandemonium from a
bottled up group of riotous Aggie fans, he just became this psycho unstoppable
ninja pulling off one insane-acrobatic-layup after another, for lack of a better
way to describe it. I can just see his thoughts, "Oh 6 hands between
me and the basket and a hole the size of an orange to put this basketball
through? No problem, I'll just pull out some crazy magic and stun the entire
Bulldog team, Spectrum and ESPN2 audience, no big deal. I love
watching him play when he's on.
I LOVE watching these guys play....Good luck in Wichita!
but hard to watch. LT played great and had the right game plan to win the game,
but in the very end they fell just short of the mark (Thankfully). So a big
time Kudos to LT for a well played game. If we meet again in the conference
tourney it will be too soon.
What a great game! La. Tech is for real. They really were playing for their
lives, and it showed. It was great to see the Aggies weather that storm or
talent, effort, and athelticism, and come out on top. Great teams win, and that
is exactly what the Aggies have been doing. Can't wait for the Bracketbuster on
Saturday. I will be there screaming my guts out. Go State!!!

After watching the game LaTech is one team that I hope is the 2 or 3 seed and
they don't drop any lower. I wouldn't want to play them until the WAC
Championship Game! They will be a hard out in the WAC Tournament! I would
rather Play Nevada in the Semi's on their home court than LaTech!
Great win.Go Aggies!
Pooh Williams. Hands down. But serious props to Bendall on his huge play off
Pooh's missed FT. And Quayle also quietly had a great game. The guy came out
with a double double although no one really knew it (13 points, 10 rebounds).
And he had ZERO turnovers despite being chased all over the floor last night.
So solid. Love this Aggie team. Can't wait for Saturday!
The crowd was amazing! The student section chants are awesome! That is an
unbelievable college basketball environment. Kudos to whoever donated the Ag
rags. They made a huge impression on the environment.
This was a great effort by a team that seems to find a way to win. They have
come together very well and are now showing signs of being a very good team.
The Aggies will need to keep up the intensity though as they hed into tournament
Stew has the team playing with heart, poise and determination. Keep up the
great effort!I love theses guys.
Another publication had Pooh Williams as saying after the game that he did not
want to lose and he was gonna do whatever had to be done to win the game. It's
not just Williams either. I see that same competitiveness and fire in Quayle
and Wesley and even some of the others. That kind of mentality will take a team
far and win many games when things aren't going too well like last night.I've seen many great Aggie teams, last year included, but I don't think
any of them matched the passion and heart of this year's team.
Nothing better than a good college basketball game. Watched this on TV and the
environment was awesome. USU easily has the best/loudest/most origianl fans in
Utah. Congrats on the win. Does anyone know what the fans were chanting as the
game ended? Amrs were pointing back and forth from one side of the court to
another as they chanted.
winning team losing team!!
@ Fantastic Game. The chant was started last year by a member of the Refrraction
(USUs unofficial game day program of the Spectrum). The members of the
Refraction point to the scoreborad and say "Is that not a scoreboard?" The fans
chant back "Yes that is a scoreboard!" The score last night was 67 to 61. The
Refraction will then say "Is that not a 67?" The fans reply "Yes that is a 67!"
Refraction "Is that not a 61?" Fans "Yes that is a 61!" Then, the Refraction
points to the winning team "Is that not the winning team?" Fans "Yes that is the
winning team!" The refraction, pointing to the losing team "Is that not the
losing team?" Fans "Yes that is the losing team!" Then we point at each team and
scream "Winning Team, Losing team" over and over again. It really annoys the
The whole chant goes like this:(guys behind basket point at
scoreboard) Is that not the scoreboard?(student section points at
the scoreboard) Yes that is the scoreboard!Is that not a 68? (or
whatever the score)Yes that is a 68!Is that not a 61?Yes that is a 61!Is that not the winning team? (guys point
to Aggs)Yes that is the winning team! (crowd points to aggs)Is that not the losing team? Yes that is the losing team!Winning Team, Losing Team, Winning Team, Losing Team.... (crowd
alternates pointing at Aggs and other team)
Nice win Aggies. We should be in the to 25 pretty soon.
Ags did do a good job and held on but all of the top 25 talk is rather early.
LaTech is not even a top 35 team and for the Aggies to struggle even as they did
... one different turn from the game and the Ags may've lost. Kudos to USU but
they will continue to need to step it up to get to the NCAAs win a game in the
Though a fairly new tradition at the spectrum, the cheer is not an original.
Check it out on you tube, there is a hilarious one from a hockey game that
brings in the referee,
The game saturday is in Logan. Get it together man don't be like a zoobie.
