I love that USU schedules tough road games where they really have to go all out
to even have a dream of winning. Playing at Auburn is a great way to open up the
season with a challenge. The Aggies have surprised people in the past, most
recently against Oklahoma, when they not only kept up with them the whole game
but almost beat them.
@AggieLuva. Wrong again. Not old enough to have a son on a mission, oldest is
8. I just read the bios of all the incoming Aggies, watch all valley teams and a
few Aggie practices and try to get to know more about them. Alot of great kids
coming in. I'm not from "Bingham Country"...just a lil' "Logan
Homer" that loves anything to do with Aggie sports. Hope to graduate soon.
haha From here on out, I TOO will bite my tongue on this debate. Peace Bro. and
@TizTheSeason, Okay Mr. Manning. I'm going to bite my tongue for now because
it's all about the Aggies. Just so you know though, I'm in Bingham country and
watched firsthand what another in state QB did to our team last year. That's
when I became a true believer.Go Aggies!
Great article on Turbin. You just gotta love that guy. Why has it turned into a
"debate" about a player that is on a mission,not even on the
roster?BTW;@AggieLuva. News flash, you are the same person, the big Hart
fan, from Jordan area. We covered this last year. I shared a few facts with
you regarding the matter. Scout.com loved Manning saying: "Manning
has an excellent pocket presence, and does a good job of going through his
progressions. Has a good arm and throws with tremendous consistency" ranked
#48 nationally in "The Year of the Quarterback". Made their top 10
Best of the West list,Tom Lemmings watch list. Joe Montana's Utah QB of the year
award recip., SLC Media's MVP/POY awards,(SL TRIB, ABC SportsZone) and 2 time
1st team all-stater. He turned down more chances to play QB out of HS to serve a
mission than other Aggie QB's received in offers. I guess I'm a 'Logan Homer', a
huge Manning Fan without even meeting him. He's a great QB role model for my
aspiring 8 year old to follow. Lets Stay positive, GO AGGIES!
@AggiesAlltheWay. Actually I'm not that same person, but that's okay. We can
still have a debate. It's just the facts is all. I watched 3 different game
films on him and I'm sorry but I do know what I'm talking about. I would love
for him to do great, I just don't see it happening. I'm not Anit-anything Aggies
considering I graduated from there. From Coach A's track record with the U, I'm
just saying it won't be a huge surprise if he moves him to tight end. I love all
our local Utah boys to succeed.
I can't wait for the spring game. Something about this coaching staff just gets
me all sorts of optimistic and excited. Let's hope Morrison, Austin, Smith and
crew can get back to 100% by fall and stay healthy along with Turbin. This
could really be the break out year we have been waiting for.
@AggieLuva Aren't you the same one on here last fall dissing Manning every time
his name came up??? I've watched all three of these guys in question. Don't
know which 'game film' you were watching but you are one confused soul. If you
actually watched any film, Accuracy was never a problem with Manning, I believe
60% and that's running timing routes. He has a big arm, throws a very tight,
fast ball that your regular HS WR's can't hang on to. He'll do fine in D1. I
look forward to meeting him. Leave the anti-Aggie and anti-Manning Homerism
out, After all, he was the first recruit that Andersen went after as HC?Be a true Aggie fan and just wait and see
@3rdGenAggie: I watch a lot of game film and I'm sorry but Manning has great
size and that's about it. No accuracy at all. Unless he is throwing the ball a
lot on his mission, that won't get any better. Maybe Coach A will turn him into
a tight end with that body size he will be great. Coach A and Whit at Utah are
pros at finding what position fits each player, i.e.Paul Kruger. That Trevor
Brown kid from Timpview will probably be a tight end, or D-end when he gets back
to. @Waylon: You are so right about having a solid line. I think
Borel however was a run first pass second type of QB. I think the new QB's we
have in line right now are more pocket passing QB's which is what we need I
think. Can't wait for ball to officially start.
The real question is, how does our line size up? That in my opinion has been
our weakest link for several years now. Borel wasn't known for his scrambling
ability because he always had a stable pocket to throw from. He was running for
his life on almost every down. Anyways, if we can win a few games in the
trenches then I anticipate a great season for the Aggies. If not, well all know
(all too well) what that looks like.
I hope you're right about Hart and Higgins being better than Manning, because
that means they're going to be awfully good. Manning is going to have a great
career he's the most highly recruited athlete we've had in a while. Oregon
wanted him pretty bad, and although that's not everything, it typically means
something. Also, I went to Sky View and hated Logan High, so no homerism from
@AggiesAlltheWayI assume you are talking about the return of
Manning. I hate to burst your bubble, but Hart and Higgens are way better than
Manning. I know you are a homer living in Logan, but it's the truth. Turbin's return is huge for the Aggies this year. I have a feeling if he stays
healthy, we will be over .500 this year.
Turbin is an animal. All the Aggies need is to get a servicable QB out of spring
ball and they should be able to win 6 or 7 games this year. I would love to see
them go bowling.
Anxious to see what develops this season. O-line is gaining size. D-line is
getting filled with size and names that are hard to pronounce. I love the size
of all the new guys coming in. A big arm 6'5" QB, we'll have another
6'5" big arm QB coming home next year. Great overall trend. Andersen is not
afraid to make adjustments by moving players from O to D to add strength and
speed. Hopefully things will continue to get better.GO
I went to the practice today and it was suuuure nice to see Turbo back on the
field!!! He looked great, even though they weren't playing all out. He's got
some serious speed to go along with his brute strength. I'm excited to see him
back.As for the quarterbacks, to me, it looked like Kennedy had the
upper hand. He just had more poise in the pocket, and he's the biggest
quarterback we've had in a while. Hart and Higgins both have talent though.
May the best man win!
Welcome back Turbin. We really missed you!
