"Even if it's a place they've never been". Is that a joke?
The conference is the WAC 2.0. Therefore, they've been there before. Just
because the WAC 2.0 has a different name than the WAC 2.0 doesn't mean
it's not the same conference they've been in for years. This article
is funny and all the aggies will buy into it.
The three best words in the English language: Mountain. West. Conference. Should
be a fun season with some awesome match-ups. The MWC isn't called the
"rivalry league" for nothing.Go Aggies! Join the climb!
Congratulations to Utah State. The MWC is a solid league. You'll fit
Stang08, you seem really bitter. Bad experience in Cache Valley?
The most exciting football and basketball in Utah will be played in Logan.
Stang08. What is with the sour grapes comments. USU is a great fit for the
MWC. And yes I am an Aggie and I am buying into it. So what is your point.
I am excited to see what the Aggies can do in the MWC. I hope they can maintain
the progress they have been making and be a consistent contender in the
Best wishes to Utah State for all games but one.
I'm a little sad with the change in conferences because I live in Texas and
was looking forward to watching them play Texas State this year. I'll just
have to head back to Logan to see a game!
Congratulations, Aggies! A sound conference. Great rivalries! Boise State,
Air Force, Wyoming, and on and on. I say, "Clean house!!!" I hope you
take first in football in 2015. But if not - don't fail to take second so
you can have a match-up with BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl. And if you
do...don't forget how the Y has treated you in the recent past!
@Old NavyNo bad experience in the valley at all. Now at USU yes.
The way the fan's treat everyone who isn't wearing aggie blue. And
the way they follow a team who has had one decent season and say they are the
best team in the state. Makes me wonder how intelligent they are. But mostly
it's the way they treat other non USU supporters.@NeilTYou just made my point. The WAC 2.0 is just as much of a joke as the
original WAC. More so now that USU is in it with a team that won't be half
as good as last years. I'm not sour about the fact that I never went to
USU. Simply because I never had the desire to go to that school. @Who Am I SirHow did the Y treat you? The way I see it the aggie
fan's are the most disrespectful fan base in the state. And they love to
point fingers to avoid seeing their own immature behavior. I've seen it
first hand on many occasions.
BYU fans have Chris B on every BYU article with his negative comments. USU fans
have Stang08 on theirs. As they say, there is one in every crowd. Good
Luck to; BYU, USU, and Utah. Hope you all have great years. Its great for the
Stang,The Aggies were the best team in the state last year. Moving
on. Now we all know that USU will never compare to a prestigious
school like SUU (especially in athletics; those thunderbirds are off the hook)
but we can hope right? If that day ever comes, my hope is that all Aggie fans
will show the intelligence regarding football, and sports in general, that you
@The A GamePost of the month right there. I haven't laughed
that hard since somebody tried to convince me that Riley Nelson was an amazing
quarterback.On a different note, Phil Steele has projected Fresno
State to be the top non-AQ team of 2013. What do you all think of that? They
could potentially take down Boise and win the Mountain West. Here's hoping we have a chance to face them in the inaugural Mountain
West title game!
@The A GameVery funny pal. USU was good last year. My team in a
new conference not so hot. But let's face it, you have to play BSU again.
And Utah and BYU. You never beat Bosie, Utah is angry and wants revenge, and
BYU just out guns you in every single way. Glad you recognize that I am
supirior though. You aggies aren't even up to my level.@SamboneDon't encourage him. And what makes you think you
have a shot at the title game? You guys need to work on your people skills and
your insults. I don't even think they would qaulify as real insults.
Congrats to USU! It's a big move for them. They did beat UNLV and Colorado
State last year, but those games were competitive for three quarters. They
weren't the easy wins that most of the WAC provided. They will be in tough
games every week. They have a killer schedule this year--especially the front
half. Drawing Air Force on the road for week 2 is tough. I think
this is going to be a tough year for every team this year: Utah has Stanford
and Oregon on the schedule, BYU is playing their toughest independent schedule,
USU is stepping up to the MWC, SUU is starting year two in the Big Sky (power
conference of FCS) after losing their QB, and Weber State in addition to trying
to rebuild their football team after the John L. mess plays Utah and USU.Good luck to all the teams--but most importantly, GO WILDCATS!
@Stang08 You make it a point to comment on every single Utah State article and
make the same "WAC 2.0" comments. But you fail to recognize that the
landscape of the Mountain West hasn't changed much since your beloved
Cougars were members. Which makes it ironic that you are talking smack on a
conference that was perfectly suitable for your team 3 years ago. Since the
birth of the Mountain West Conference in 1999, only 3 teams have left (BYU,
Utah, & TCU) and Utah State plays both the U and the Y this year.
Essentially, this means that Utah State is playing the same games that the U and
the Y were playing 3 years ago. Also- I'd like it if you would acknowledge
how many WAC teams BYU played last season. For those of you who don't want
to look it up, it was 4. Talk about irony, Stang08! You love to talk smack on
the WAC and yet you love to schedule those teams every year!
Great comment LL...Not sure why USU fans get so much of Stangs
venom, every stadium/campus I have been to in the state, or even out of the
state, the home fans are not too nice to the visitors... that is college sports,
good or bad that is what it is.As far as the new conference goes, it
is widely recognized that at least for football the Mtn West the best non
bcs/non big 5 conference. So good for the Aggies, definitely a step up!
@Loud LoitererAs usual you are mistaken. BYU isn't my team.
My team is SUU. I do cheer for anyone who beats USU but make no mistake about
it I have one team. And of course you just made my point stronger. Why did BYU
and Utah leave the WAC 2.0? Because they needed a stronger schedule with better
teams and the WAC 2.0 couldn't provide that.@Ifel Ofa-SofaYou are correct that is college football. But in case you don't
see it USU takes it to a whole different level. Above and beyone how anyone
should treat anyone. Keep living under all your delusions. Including the WAC
2.0 being a step up. It's not and will never be.
Okay, Stang... Because Boise State and San Diego State don't make the
Mountain West's strength of conference any more impressive than the WAC...
Keep living in a fantasy land and enjoy your FCS football (exciting stuff).
SUU will take the college football world by storm this year. And Stang will lead
the way. No doubt in my mind.
@The A GameGlad you see it my way. It's good to see you aggies
changing your ways and jumping on the SUU bandwagon.
I totally agree Stang. If SUU just could've scored five more touchdowns
against USU last year they would've won. Because it was such a close game
I've decided that SUU is the next great thing in college football.
Keep playing your game. No one is buying it.
