Congrats and very deserving. A lot of expectations in Logan this year for a
great season -- in fact, it's surprising how many players at both USU and
BYU have been identified for pre-season watch lists. Should be fun to watch it
all play out.
If my count is right, that makes 8 nominations for the Aggies so far, including
5 different players being nominated for 6 different awards. Not half bad!
Really getting excited about Aggie football this year..I see an 8 win season.
These nominations mean nothing, of course, ask Stang0...they are USU players.
There isn't a decent athlete on the team by his assessment.
8 wins is all, tinplater? I disagree. Assuming Chuckie stays healthy and we
don't have a total injury meltdown like last year, I'd say we're
looking at 9-10 wins worst case. The schedule this year is not murderer's
row by any means and is certainly easier than last year's schedule.
There's no single game on the schedule that would be a huge surprise for
USU to win. Our three toughest games are @Tenn, @BYU, and @Boise, and I think
we win at least one of those, possibly two. Out of the remaining games, we may
lose one, possibly two, perhaps out of @Colorado State, UNLV, or SJSU. At
worst, that would put us at 9-4 heading into the bowl game. On the other hand,
it's entirely possible that we could end up with a 1 loss regular season
and go to the MW Champ game plus the bowl game. My optimistic prediction is
that we go 11-2 for the regular season, and go 1-1 between the MWCG and our bowl
game, finishing the season at 12-3.
Assuming Keeton stays healthy? We all know he won't. It's impossible
for Keeton to stay healthy.
Aggie238, I hope you are correct, but I believe we will lose to BYU, Boise, and
Tennessee and think we will probably lose two of the remaining games. Just my
pessimistic nature honed by decades of expecting Aggie loses. Stang0
doesn't understand that even should Keeton be injured, the Aggies have
excellent depth (and experience) at QB. Why Stang0 even bothers to read and
expose himself on the USU boards mystifies me.
Understandable. My prediction is admittedly optimistic, but I don't think
it's wildly so. I am expecting a regular season finish anywhere from 9-4
to 11-2. I think anything less than 9 wins would represent a step backwards
(after all, we managed 8 regular season wins last year without Keeton and half
of our offense against a tougher schedule), and anything more than that would be
a very surprising and special season. Including post-season play, I am
anticipating anything from 10-4 to 12-3.Stang is probably predicting
No not 0-15. You can chalk up 3-4 wins with Keeton. After that, well it's
anyone's best guess how far USU will fall without him. Do I have to keep
explaining something this simple to tinplater? You were right in a previous
comment. They are USU players who couldn't make it anywhere else.
Oh Richard... back on USU articles?USU players could not make it on 6th in
the big sky suu huh? LOL
Turns out, NFL.com rates Utah State's quarterback situation, which includes
assessing the backup QB and how comfortable the coach would be going into the
season, as No. 7 out of all FBS schools. BYU is 23 and Utah is 60. I wonder if
he senses the irony, given his last comment.
I wish somebody would let the cat out of the bag and tell us how he came up with
that Richard thing and who Richard is. Also since he is a true Thunderbird he
would know there are more than 6 teams in the conference and that SUU will no
doubt be ranked higher by the end of the year. But I guess we can't all
get what we wish for.
Stang0 can't comprehend that anyone in the country can see what a talented
quarterback Keeton is when Stang0, for some weird reason, refuses to acknowledge
the talent that Chuckie has and is recognized by everyone except Stang0.
Stang0, who else with football knowledge doesn't see Keeton as an
exceptional quarterback? You stand all alone, by yourself on this one.
Every big team he plays plus their fan's.
