The article mentioned RGIII played at Texas. That's inaccurate; Griffin played at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Des News, please don't overlook those details.

That being said, I'm super stoked to have Chuckie back for his senior year. He's been so much fun to watch the last few years. I was extremely fortunate to be able to watch almost all of his home games in person. Phenomenal athlete and total class act. He even signed my football in silver marker!

Hope you have a monster senior season, #16.

Go Ags! Beat Tennessee!

Excellent, excellent article. Enjoyed learning about the personal side of this amazing young man.

@Sambonethegreat - The article reads "Keeton is a native of Houston, and since Griffin played his college football at Baylor, the Aggies' quarterback is well-acquainted with Griffin's accomplishments." It then references that Griffin is a Texas kid - meaning he was raised in Texas.

Best to this kid, at the best school in Utah!

How fortunate we Aggies are to have this exceptional young man back for hopefully an amazing senior season. He has those intangible qualities that inspires those around him to give their very best too…a natural leader with charisma.

Chuckie Keaton is money. He has been since his first game at Auburn. I wish USU all the best.

Playing the MWC is a little weird - you play the big boys for 1-2 games right at the start of the season, and then have 9-10 games against nobodies. Its a struggle to pretend to get excited to be playing teams like Wyoming, UNLV, and New Mexico. Trust us, we know.

Boy am I glad I don't have that problem anymore. Hope Chuckie can play healthy and lead usu to a WAC title.

Go aggies

It's almost Chuckie Time!

It has been a pure joy to watch Keeton play starting from his first game as a freshman. Chuckie is the real deal on and off the field. Here's hoping the Aggies put it all together for an amazing season. After knocking on the door for the past few years it is time for USU to win the big out of state opening game. Go Big Blue!!!

In my opinion, as good as Chuckie has been, I always thought he was a little skinny and fragile.
What a difference and injury can make!
This young man has WORKED during his rehab!
He is a lot thicker and stronger and looks a lot better physically.
I am excited to see what Chuckie 2.0 is going to do this season...
Go Aggies!

Chris B can't resist a little jab, no matter what the topic. What he doesn't realize is that for decades USU was a nobody. Now we are winning and competitive in a conference at a level where we belong. Not so sure one can say that about the Utes. Too bad we don't play U this year, Chuckie is 1 and 1 against them.

Too long of an article to read the whole thing. Keeton is the best QB in the state by far and I wish him the best.

redthunder, I wouldn't say that Chuckie was "the best qb by far in the state" but I would say he is the best all around qb. He runs, he passes, and he can fire up his team like no other. I was sad to see him get hurt, but he has proven to be a tough one. I hope he has the kind of season he deserves (AND, without injury) and gets drafted high in the NFL draft.

Salt Lake City, UT

Correct me if I'm wrong Chris, but didn't the Utes lose to New Mexico multiple times in the Mountain West? And who can forget that 27-0 laugher for the Rebels in 2007? LOL.

Chuckie should have a great season. If he stays healthy, I see no reason why we can't compete for the conference title.

Richard comes along and does his best to disparage Chuckie... but he is reading everything USU!

Southern, UT

Inquiring minds wish to know who Richard really is? I've listened to that for a while now and it's got me curious. Please Ifel-ofa-sofa indulge a fellow fan for a moment.

Salt Lake City, UT

I'm sure Southpaw would agree it's bush league to disparage a hard-working student athlete coming off a serious injury. Those student athletes just want to play the game they love, earn an education, and show their school spirit in the process.

What's wrong with that?

Southern, UT


Being a fan of all schools I agree. However, some may not. It seems all some fan's want is argue who is better. Chris B, tinplater, Ifel of a-sofa, Stang08 and yes you on occasion come to my mind. But yes I agree with you whole heartedly Sambone.

Last word let's put it this way. Keeton is like former Utah QB Brian Johnson. Remember that guy? He succeeded Alex Smith. Anyway, that QB was always injured always. Keeton is no different.
