@A1994

Yes I do and you clearly missed my point. Which was, the aggies could barely beat a bad UNLV team. SUU destroyed UNLv a few years ago. We both did it but it was easier for my guys. That should give you a hint as to the talent of each team.

USU destroyed SUU the last time they met. 38-3. I think that makes more sense of a comparison between SUU and USU than does the 2011 result of UNLV vs. SUU.

However, if you want to blindly persist in your categorical rejection of anything good related to USU; or at the very least provide a backhanded, passive-aggressive insult shrouded by a fake compliment, then by all means. In such case the SUU matchup with UNLV from 2011 clearly indicates that SUU is the better team than the 2013 Aggies.

Stang0 conveniently left out the drubbing Utah State gave UNLV last year. Incidentally, that's the same year that Utah State totally embarrassed SUU and their "NFL QB." So, if we're going into past history...

Correction, USU over SUU in 2012 by a final score of 34-3, not 38-3 as I said in my previous post.

UNLV has been bad the last 3 years, but they've made some very noticeable improvement this season. I give them props for almost beating us. They wanted it badly. They should be able to go to a bowl. Their fanbase deserves it.

@Mars

Utah State shellacked the T-birds last season to the tune of 34-3... and they had a pro quarterback!!! Don't pay any attention to that troll. It just isn't worth it.

When the Ags and the T-birds meet again in 2016, I bet it will be just as ugly for SUU as it was last season, too.

Do we really care about the local newspaper coverage? We get all the national attention we need. Almost every week we are on ESPN or CBS Sports. We get a lot of national love. That will produce more recognition for the Aggie program than what any local newspaper could ever accomplish.
The Aggie program is on the rise whereas the other two programs are were they have been for many years. Three consecutive bowl games and hopefully this year not in Boise. SD or Hawaii would be nice.

@Aggie84

I (perhaps incorrectly) assume that the readership reflects the general attitudes toward USU football. I think in order to maintain our newly found success, we are going to have to make sure we can swing recruits over. In that respect, yes, I do care that we get some local attention. It may very well be that the readership and commentators of the Deseret News has absolutely diddly squat to do with the general perception of Utah State football amongst blue-chip recruits, but as I'm completely disconnected from the latter, the attention the in-state media gives us is as good a barometer as any to little old me.

As for Utah and BYU, I think they're doing pretty well, even if they aren't rising. Both are still better programs than we are, for now. I would trade places with them - quality of program wise, I don't want to be independent ever - in a heartbeat.

@Sambone

Please answer this. How could you possibly know when the Birds meet the Aggies again? I don't even think the two AD's know the scheduling that far in advance.

@Stang08

Actually USU plays SUU in 2015 not 2016. Their are websites out there where once a game gets scheduled they post it and keep track of who is playing who. Due to Desnews rules I can't post the website but if you search for your Thunderbirds and Future College Football Schedule you should be able to find it.

Ah, we do play SUU in 2015. My bad.

I guess I got them confused with Idaho State or Weber or something. Most of those BigSky teams are basically the same to me.

@Aggie 4 life

The first part of your comment should be directed toward Sambone, not me. That website probably doesn't exist.

@Sambone

That's where you are wrong. What a shocker. The BigSky is the premeire FCS conference and there is quite a difference between SUU/Weber State/and Idaho State.

I love how you can google "FB Schedules" and find a website almost entirely the same as the search terms and find it.

It's a very useful and real thing that most certainly exists.

USU has been getting a lot more attention nationally. It helps that The Spectrum started it and now the football team is getting more of it. Just this year we were on CBS for a football game. We dont receive a lot of attention in Utah but that will change when USU receives the best bowl game out of Utah football teams.

@Stand08

The website does exist and if I could post the website here I would but the desnews won't let me. If you don't believe me just try it. Just google the school and FBSchedules then click on the link. What are you afraid to try..... Afraid I'd prove you wrong!

@Mars_

Thanks! You know the website I'm talking about.

@ Stang08

One more thing. The reason I directed the comment at you was to prove the AD's do plan out their football schedules 3 or more years in adance for their pre-season games which you apparently didn't believe in your comment.

@Aggie 4 Life

And if you're BYU, they schedule games 10 years in advance. :) (They have games with USC and Boise State "scheduled" for 2023, and games with Stanford as far out as 2025)

I wouldn't be surprised if BYU has games scheduled in the 2030's by next year!

I love how Richard keeps trying to talk to me even though I haven't read a single post from him since late September. Comedic gold.

@Aggie 4 life

I'm not afraid but it's a general rule of mine not to believe what the aggies say. So I'm pretty sure it doesn't existt.

@Sambone

You admitted yourself you didn't get the reference. So why are you using it when I've said that has never been my name? Another thing, if you haven't read a single post from me since September, how do you know if I'm talking to you? You really need to work on that buddy. I can do better than that.
