Congratulations to Coach Wells and all aggies, you have the #26 recruiting class
in the west out of the Pac 12, the WAC, and byu.There are 26 total
teams in the west.
So what? Do you think the Aggies are the 26th best team in the West? Their
record indicates they can take lesser athletes and transform them into stars
(ala Wagner, Turbin, etc). Only conclusion...the Aggies have superior coaching
and better scouting. I wouldn't crow too much since Utah is at the bottom
of the Pac 12 and competes for cellar dweller for the past five years, not to
mention 5 of the Aggie recruits were offered by Utah. GO AGGIES
The real unspoken question that resides back in the shadows is how long Coach
Wells and his staff will remain at USU. Even Boise State had a recent HC
vacancy, and as much as we all know the Cache Valley is God's Country,
unfortunately some see the USU HC job as a stepping stone.Hopefully
USU will enjoy Coach Wells' presence for many years, certainly at least
enough time to provide consistency and stability to a program that receives a
remarkable level of mega-support from the local USU faithful. Love those folks
in the stands, they're almost as fun to watch as the games.
I have never seen trophies handed out for recruiting. You recruit the best you
can and then you have to play the games. Trophies comes from going to a bowl
game and winning said bowl game.
Chris can have his recruiting and star smack if he wants. Who honestly cares if
the Utes have a better recruiting class than the Aggies? If U don't have
winning seasons and go to bowl games, so what if U have better recruits? U are
still not winning enough games. Utah State has like 1/5 of the
resources of the Utes... and yet we do so much more with so much less. So why do
U care about little old Utah State again, Chris? I thought we were just that
cute little school up north and that mighty PAC schools had better things to do
than pick on Mountain West schools.I guess I was wrong.
Utah does beat USU with those better recruits. The truth is the truth.
Stang0, Utah did not beat USU year before last, and the 2013 game was decided by
an onside kick. But that doesn't matter, what does matter is USU is
competitive at it's level of competition, and U is not. The
reason...better coaching, better scouting, better attitude, better game
planning. Just as SUU can't compete at the level of USU, USU
shouldn't be expected to compete at the Pac 12 level. But USU is at the
top of MWD conference and the U is at the bottom of the Pac12. The Aggies are
without question among the most improved national football teams over the past
decade and that you cannot argue with. (or if you do what teams would you say
showed more improvement than USU?)
It's nice to be relevant. Why else would a broken Utah record and a very
broken Southern Utah record play constantly on the USU fan board? Jealousy?
Resentment? Envy? Desperation? It's tough to say. Oh well...
let the good times roll. Go Aggies!
