Utah State University Aggie

Yes! Finally a game won, with improved defense. This will be good for Gary Anderson and the gang. Aggies still have a ways to go before they get a winning team, but this will help the team get some good vibes.


Finally a victory...But they still Stink!

Aggie Fan

DDW - Your attitude STINKS! We need to get better results 3rd & 4th qtrs. Cannot start good and have a downward trend. Similar to last week. We got the win which is a plus however we need to figure how to sustain the lead throughout all 4 qtrs.


Enjoyed the game in Cache Valley. Aggies totally dominated the first half. Need to have more horses in the stable for the second half. Gary has the program headed in the right direction.

Go Big Blue!!!


The Ags could use those horses in the stable, especially on the defensive side. I hope that they'll be coming soon.

It was a nice win in Logan. And how about Wagner's pick?!

If nobody attends the game..

did it really happen? Pathetic crowd. USU deserves what it gets. If the fans actually believe, they should show up. Nobody really cares.

Just Win that Game and the season is a success... Here is to more wins to come

Ws Fix Everything

More wins and more fans will come. It is no different than the empty stands in Provo for the 4th quarter today. You have to have some success to draw in the masses.

The Aggies are working hard to build a competitive football program. Recruiting over the next couple of years will make or break what Gary is building.

I am very excited for the future of USU football.

Go Big Blue!!!

Ogden Aggie

Finally the Aggies are able to win a close one. There was absolutely NO REASON that the game should have ever been that close, but I will take the win. I know Nevada and New Mexico State did not feel bad at all about taking 3 point wins from the Aggies. You gotta feel good about any win no matter how it comes. Great to see this hard working team get some positive vibes flowing in Logan. Go State!!!

If the Aggies don't end up over .500 in conference this year, they will for sure next year. It's on the upswing, no question. Finally.

His attitude may stink, but that's probably just because he's a U or Y fan. Or a troll. Or both.


Good job Utah State! Pick up another 2 wins and we can call the season a "success" and build the program. We don't need miracle turn around seasons, we need slow and steady progress to build the program.

And here's my theory on why we slow down in the second half: Gary has the guys playing really really hard, but in the size and strength departments we are still way behind in the trenches. So down the stretch our boys are just plain beat.

Give them a year of hard lifting with real hope of success on the field, and next year they'll be much stronger.

Compared to previous years, 14,229 fans for the game with La Tech isn't bad. Of course, not quite the magic number of 15,000 but better than 9000 or less.

Congratulations, Aggies.

And while I am at it, congratulations to Weber State and Southern Utah (great blow out of North Dakota) and Snow. The first five Utah teams to play today all won. The last two, however, were blown out.


Good job Aggies..Keep it up and beat the rest.

Phx Aggie

I was in slc and was able to actually watch the game on tv unlike those teams to the south. The team is definitly on the up swing. And wagners pick over the middle was awesome! Go aggies!

Obviously Undereducated

KJZZ and the CW. Imagine, broadcast coverage of a local team, with no need to gripe about the mtn ... and a homie vs. Boise on ESPN coming up next month.

Yeehaw! Great goings on in Logan.


Bright Future

Good Win Ags! You need to keep steam rolling for the entire game though, can't let down in the 4th quarter! You tried to give it away!

GA, great local recruiting class coming next year:
Walker OL from Pleasant Grove
Hart QB from Jordan
Fanaika TE from Pleasant Grove
Anderson Rec from Juan Diego
those are the ones I know, I am sure there are more...


keep in mind it was rainy and chilly and the Aggies had just lost two games they shouldn't have. I believe against both SUU and Nevada we had around 18,000 in attendance so we're well over the magic 15,000 average.

Dallas Aggie

Great win! Picked it up on ESPN360 while driving to Minnesota from Dallas. Wagners pick was insane! Can anyone believ how much Diondre has improved? I am so impressed! Turbin, Speight and crew are doing great as well. Love the team!


A great victory, but scary down the stretch. Congrats to Coach A and the team.

I agree with the comments earlier: 1) More wins and a competitive team will increase fan attendance. In the meantime, fans need to increase their support for the team; these guys are working hard, and the the program has a new attitude and class deserving of support. 2) LTU was definitely the larger team yesterday in terms of size. They had some pretty good skill players, too. Even so, the Ags held their own until the 4th quarter when size, strength and stamina was not on their side. They played with heart when they had to--and with backup players! Continued work by existing players and improved recruiting by GA and his staff (as has already been demonstrated) will show positive effects in seasons to come.

This was a tought opponent and the Ags have every right to be proud of the victory. Improvement, the will to win, and a never-quit attitude are manifesting themselves in the program and on the field. Much more remains to be done, but ya gotta start somewhere and this was a significant victory. Go Ags.


Those who criticize (kick) a program when its down have zero class. The Aggies are getting better and the scoreboard shows that as games are closer. Gary and the team are heading the right direction despite what classless naysayers spout off.
