This will be a first, a kid after his 8 birthday party still going by Chuckie. Good grief! I'm mystified by the pronouncement of Utah State as the new king of the world. No team has dominated, no team has a good win, while the Swopes egg laying in Tempe has to be the states low point. The key is who is decent at seasons end. I don't think you go from outhouse to penthouse by completing your 2011 with a 7-6 record just squeezing by some dreadful New Mexico St and Idaho teams before getting dumped in the small potatoes bowl. Winning at home in overtime to the worst Utah team in Whits era with no QB play at all, kind of like the Utah 3 pt win at home to BYU, Riley did his best to give it away, Utah didn't seem willing to take it. USU has to do a little more in 5 or 6 seasons to earn the pronouncements Dick Harmon and others are dishing out. Football in the state of Utah has fallen on bad times. I see the Aggies being set up for a bad fall. 35-10

Lightening Lad. I don't think a team that loses to two top 5 National teams last year by a combined 7 points should be considered a bad team. This program has been on the rise since Anderson took over the program. The best part is he is building the program with many of the local talent. Riley Nelson, had he not transferred would be standing on the side line at USU sending in plays with hand signals......oh wait, that's what he is doing at BYU... Anyway. I think the game will be close, only because of the crowd and home field advantage, but I predict a win for the Aggies. You can't for someone like Chuckie.

Ridiculing names? Really? Last I checked, the Cougars had a coach named Bronco and a QB named Taysom!

Careful, Lad, your jealousy is showing.

The truth is that this year's Aggies are one speacial team's botched fluke away from being 5-0, which would include games in both PAC 12 and Big 10 territory. The program has seen vast improvement since Anderson took over. The Aggies just dominated two decent MWC teams. Indeed, the only team in the MWC that the Aggies would apparently have a challege with this year is the wolfpack. Like, MWC Thompson said, "It is a rare year you see a team winning the championship in two conferences at the same time."

That said, only the blind and jealous will say that football in Utah has fallen in hard times. The Utes still are in the PAC. The Y was ranked just a few short weeks ago and (arguably) still has one of the best Ds in the nation. The Aggies?? Appear to be a solid team through and through. 11th D in the nation and a star offense to boot. They are well on their way to taking the in-state, WAC and (constructively) the MWC crowns.

Both teams have great defenses. However, the U State offensive is VASTLY superior this year than the Y's.

The Y has no QB the caliber of Keeton. While the Y has two great recievers, this is of little encouragement noting that U State's Williams, Bartlet and Jacoby are all quality players that can make big plays against tough defenses.

That said, the team that will win this game is the one whose offensive can find the path around the other team's stellar defensive. My vote is with Keeton et al.

Great article DN. Chuckie is an amazing player.

As a true freshman last year he went into the National Champions house and almost pulled out the upset. It is safe to say that Keeton is fearless. Go Aggies!!!

If you prefer Lightening Lad you could call him Mr. Keeton...afterall he has earned quite a bit of respect.
