I am very pleased Wells is the new head coach. He will provide the crucial continuity needed for the future success of Aggie football. And he knows how to run a strong offense.

Rest assured my Aggie brethren, our program is in good hands. Let's thank Gary Andersen for building a strong foundation on which to build.

And away we go.

Good luck, Coach Wells. I hope you are extremely successful (except when you play BYU).

Plan on winning all your games next year with the exception of BYU.

Chin up USU. Boise fans thought the sky was falling the day Dan Hawkins left for greener pastures and Coach Pete took over. We all know how that's turned out. Gary Andersen is likely to have better results in Wisconsin than Dan Hawkins had in Colorado but my point is you're in good hands with Coach Wells. There's a good system in place now, thanks to Andersen, and I'm guessing you'll be just fine.

My hat's off to Gary Andersen for proving his worth in Logan. He did a heckuva job in his 4 years there. I wish he could have stayed another year or two but I understand the way good college coaches work these days. He had to take while the taking was good.

I cannot blame Gary Anderson for leaving for more money and a better opportunity. But why tell everyone you were going to be here just a few days ago. I lost some respect for Anderson for pulling that stunt.

I have more respect for a guy like Rick Majerus who at the end of each season was pretty open about exploring his options. I was always disappointed that he did that, but at least he was honest about it.

Good luck Coach Wells. I spent 7 years in Cache Valley attending USU and this has been so fun this year. I hope it keeps going.

USU was smart to jump all over Wells. I think you promote those that made you sucessful. Players will keep on the hard work. Hope USU has an even better year next year. Go Aggies.

Good luck to Coach Wells and to the Aggies.

First, good luck to Coach Andersen and Coach Wells on their new jobs.

Second, let's clarify the historical record. This was the best season for number of wins (11). The 1961 season was the best season in Aggie history for win percentage 9-1-1 and final national ranking (No. 10)...

Like this team, the coach left for a bigger job (Stanford) and led the Cardinal, then the Indians, to two Rose Bowls. It will be interesting to see if Andersen has the same success at Wisconsin as John Ralston did once he left Logan.
