LOGAN — This year's group of seniors — those who have been in the program for four or five years, at least — have seen it all.

Two head coaches.

Four offensive coordinators.

Independent. Sun Belt Conference and now Western Athletic Conference affiliation.

A 16-game losing streak — currently the second longest in the nation and the longest losing streak in school history.

Wins have been few and very, very far between.

"I've been through everything possible," said Utah State wide receiver/kick returner Kevin Robinson, who is playing his final home game in Romney Stadium when the Aggies (0-9, 0-5) host No. 19 Boise State (8-1, 5-0) today at 1 p.m. The game can be seen live on KJZZ.

"So that's one thing I've adapted well with changing. I can take that no matter where I go. I really don't get frustrated or get rattled too much because I've been through it all."

Frustration is definitely the right word for explaining his career, but Utah State coach Brent Guy credits Robinson and the other seniors for the way they have continued to work to make the team better.

"These are guys that have had to carry the load with that, and I'm really proud of the way that this class has led this year, especially in this situation," Guy said. "This is probably as difficult of a situation as you can be placed in as a senior, especially with the way that last season ended and the way that this season has gone."

The Aggies lost the last seven last year and haven't won this year.

With three games remaining, they haven't given up when packing it in would be easy.

"I'm going to stick it out through the end, no matter what happens and no matter what changes go on. That's just the kind of person I am," Robinson said. "Unfortunately, some of the people that came with my class left ... but you have to stick it out."

The Aggies have won only 10 games in four-plus years (45 losses).

"It hasn't been the plan that we wanted, and we haven't had the years that we've wanted. We say we're going to do something, and we didn't, but you can't get mad at us for not fighting every single game and giving it our all," Robinson said.

Robinson is one of 15 seniors playing in his final home game. He joins Josh Anderson, Jimmy Bohm, Ben Childs, Will Fausel, Chris Forbes, Leon Jackson III, Pace Jorgensen, Aaron Lesue, Frank Maile, Shawn Murphy, Drew Pearson, Tarell Richards, Preston Robinson and Carl Singleton.

"First of all, you can still see that this team cares. I think they proved it in the second half (last Saturday at Fresno) that they wanted to win. They want to still play football games and compete," Guy said. "I think that is a credit, first of all, to the senior group for their leadership, in how guys are still playing like they are playing."
