The conversation always goes in circles when some unknown university's only fan gets involved.

But I gotta say, it NEVER gets old whipping said fan into a frenzy! I hope Sorensen gets whipped tonight by the Seahawks. Former Aggie greats versus the only good player in some unknown university's history.

Go Aggies!!

Get something straight. I'm not the only fan. Just the only fan that comes foward here. And we are clearly far from unknown. The school that Stockton's kid came from is unknown. No frenzy here Sambone you need to know the difference between that and a passionate fan. Only good player? Matt Cannon, Tysson Poots, Fesi Sitake, Decker Alexander just to name a few GREAT players that donned Thunderbird red. And who are those "aggie greats" I forget those names because they made no impact in the NFL. No impact worth noting anyway. Yes you never heard of the players meantioned but what does that mean? Nothing at all to us.

Stockton's kid? Meaning John Stockton? Meaning Gonzaga? Um...I'd say Gonzaga is one of the MORE well known schools in college basketball. Anyone who knows anything about college basketball knows about Gonzaga. No one knows about SUU.

Merlin Olsen ring a bell? Fearsome Foursome? He's still considered one of the best defensive tackles to ever play the game. If that's not worth noting, then you need to throw out Peyton Manning, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, and a bunch of others as no-account JV players. Utah State currently has 13 players on NFL rosters. SUU has four, only one of whom has actually played a down.

@Aggie238

You never miss a chance do you? Didn't he go to Westminster? That's what I was talking about. But you are right. You are wrong. you clearly know about SUU. But then again you are a no one so maybe you are right. Yeah but really who remembers the Merlin Olsen era? Peyton Manning, Steve Young, Jerry Rice weren't aggies. Have those 13 players done anything worth noting in their carrer's? What I mean is winning any awards, helping their team get to or far in the playoffs, and more importantly playing in and/or winning the Superbowl. No they have not. Not even close. Just keep talking and I'll poke holes in your logic. Poke Poke Poke.

I only know about SUU because I am from Washington Co. and my parents went to school there. I didn't even insinuate that those players were Aggies. I drew a comparison, stating that if you were going to throw Merlin Olsen's accomplishments out the window as "nothing noteworthy," then you'd have to do the same for those players. Anyway, Olsen (DL) was 14-year Pro-Bowler, All-American, and Outland Trophy winner. Lionel Aldridge (DL) was an All-American, and finished with two SB rings (Green Bay). Jim Turner (PK) held a pro-record for 34 field goals scored in a season, and has one SB ring (NY Jets) and played in one other SB. Greg Kragen (DL) has three SB rings, and was also a Pro-Bowler. Chris Cooley (TE) was a Pro-Bowler. Donald Penn (OT) currently starts for Tampa and is a Pro-Bowler. Jarrett Bush (DB) plays for Green Bay and made several key plays en route to GB's SB win. This is not a complete list, but you're capable of navigating Wikipedia, I assume, for further info. Pray tell, what have former SUU players accomplished in the NFL?

Then you should show some respect for us. You just made my point easier. They weren't aggies so they were successful because they didn't have big heads. The only aggie you meantioned was Olsen. Doesn't sound like he did anything but making the pro bowl in the NFL. Poke Poke Poke. I'll tell you when the season is over and we see how San Diego does. You have nothing to say. No leg to stand on so just keep quiet. I'm sure your Thunderbird alum parent's would be dissappointed in you.

Wow, Stango, just wow.

Olsen, Aldridge, Turner, Kragen, Cooley, Penn, and Bush are ALL AGGIES. There goes your argument. Poke Poke Poke.

And you forgot the Seahawks. Bobby Wagner was runner-up defensive rookie of the year last season, and they were a field goal away from playing in the NFC championship. Poke Poke Poke.

Aggie238 proved beyond a shadow of a doubt he has a much stronger leg to stand on than you do.

Stang08

Did they do anything? NO they did not. And it's no suprise the only aggie name I knew on there was Olsen. Because the rest are just flash in the pan players. Yeah yeah yeah a feild goal away and yet they lost and watched from the sidelines. In your eye's but in the real world he does not. Wagner lost out on his shot at the SuperBowl so he is just another player. Nothing great just another player. Keep making my life easy.

Stango, if Aldridge, Turner, Bush, and Kragen having (multiple) super bowl rings and pro-bowler statuses counts as nothing and they are "just other players," your thinking is clearly warped. So I guess since Sorensen doesn't have a super-bowl ring, he's done nothing (that's your logic, FYI).

Just because you haven't heard of those Aggies, doesn't mean their accomplishments mean nothing. It just proves how little you know about USU's past players.

Quit being a poor sport and give credit where credit is due: the Aggies have had many more players in the NFL (and currently do) than the T-birds. That shouldn't be controversial or offensive to anybody. And I'm not even trying to rub this in. It's just a plain fact.

Keep making my life easy.

Whenever Stang talks about the Aggies, I literally get chills. I just love it when he shoots down every argument somebody brings up. Chuckie Keeton and the Aggies are just one big fluke.

Stang,

Apparently you don't ever watch the NFL (which is ironic, since you seem to set that standard as the end-all-be-all of football). To put it in a vernacular you'll perhaps understand better, since you're in the thespian business from what I hear, getting an invitation to a Pro-Bowl is very similar to winning a Tony Award. In other words, you can't get to a Pro-Bowl by being a "flash in the pan." Let alone multiple PBs and SB rings like many of these players have done. And if that doesn't count in your estimation, then I have to agree with Sambone and conclude that your thinking is clearly so warped by your hatred of anything remotely Aggie related that you are not capable of normal, rational thought. In that case, you really ought to go see a therapist and get some things cleared up (I'm not even joking about that). You clearly have no idea what you're talking about, and everyone but you knows it. Maybe you should quit before you get any further behind.

It's no secret there are more Aggies then Thunderbirds. The aggies just haven't done anything. Glad you see it that way The A Game. Last year was a fluke. I'm not an avid NFL fan. But I know enough about the NFL to get by. That is personal and you had no right to say that. In the words of my father the pro bowl means nothing. Just a bunch of guys that won't get a chance to play in the SuperBowl. Get out of your own head and know that there are players in the NFL and elsewhere that aren't aggies. I don't need help and that crossed the line. If you know me then yo should know what I do If not, which none of you do then just shut up and don't bring anything personal on this page. I'm a college fan not a big NFL fan. That's the end of it.

"Get out of your own head and know that there are players in the NFL and elsewhere that aren't aggies."

Yeah I'm pretty sure none of us have even come remotely close to making such an inane claim that only Aggies are in the NFL or elsewhere. Sounds like that warped mind talking again.

If your logic says the Aggies have done nothing, than the T-birds must not even exist in the first place! lolz

Stang,

Dude, take a chill pill. I didn't say anything about you that you haven't volunteered yourself either here or on the HJ boards (I forget which). It's not like I posted your SSN.

I don't know anything about your dad, and I'm sure he's a great guy, but his opinion on the Pro-Bowl is suspect. While the Pro-Bowl isn't watched as much as the Super Bowl, it's still the NFL All-Star game, and it is a pretty high honor to those who are selected to play in it. Most people recognize that. Again, your thinking is obviously so skewed that you can't bring yourself to admit that anything good ever comes out of Utah State. Most other college sports fans would have no problem acknowledging that there are plenty of Aggie players who have done some pretty impressive stuff in the NFL, along with many other players from other schools. You need to get your issues worked out, man. It's not healthy.

@Sambone

Oh we do exist. You just like ignoring it.

Aggie238

You are getting personal and that's not ok. Should I come to you for help with my non existent "issues"? The Pro Bolw is just a game for guys who won't take a snap in the SuperBowl to play in. And puff their chests saying "I made the Pro Bowl look at me please".
