Also, the fans need to back up John L. He even said for this to work they need
full support for it to happen.Fans, students, WSU administration
need to get it going. No more lackluster support.
Weber State wants to take its football program to the next level - winning
playoff games.They now need to back up that talk but paying more for
not just the head coach but assistants. Mac had a high turnover due to low pay.
Weber also needs to step it up with the recruiting budget.Mac did
wonders with one hand tied behind his back for 6 yrs. If you want to
compete with the Montanas then back up your new coach!Go 'Cats!
Can any school in the State of Utah, with the exception of Urban Meyer hire a
coach that has no Utah ties whatsoever?
I don't know anything about his policy of discipline or in bringing players into
a program that have interface with local authorities; but I think it comes with
the territory. Top players will not be coming to Weber State, so the marginal
players available to him will be just that in the skill positions. There are a
lot of local players that can play at the Big Sky level. That is a plus. I
think his reputation will be a plus, and if he can put together a decent staff
with the limited resources at WSU he should do well. One question will be, does
he have the energy and enthusiasm at this point to fire up players as McBride
did. Best of luck Coach Smith. Go get 'em Wildcats.
Another great hire for Weber St. He'll stick around until retirment.
Hope he rides into the sunset on a high note at Weber. I was mad that he left
USU on the verge of having the program turned around but I probably would have
done the same if offered triple the money.
I think bringing in someone on the back end of the career is better than getting
someone climbing the ladder. The ladder climber is gone very quickly for the
next best thing. McBride stuck around maybe Smith will. Could give the program
Excellent choice. I wonder what happened at Michigan State after such a great
start? Oh well their loss is our gain.
Jim Rome still plays that guy's meltdown over some botched field goal. I hope
he still has the same fire.
I'm sorry Wildcat fans but this is a MISTAKE! He captions a ship with NO
discipline. The only thing exciting about next year will be the Ogden City
Police department working with Weber State police department.Watch
the quality of your student athletics go downhill FAST!
Welcome home Coach Smith!
Excellent! Should be some good times next Fall.
