Utah State University hopes wins will bring in fans - snow or shine.

Time for Brent Guy to lead USU out of the cold.

Three years ago, Brent Guy took over a program that had only 56 players reporting to camp after floundering in the far-flung Sun Belt Conference and as an independent. Three years into his reign at Utah State, the Aggies have just six wins but finally have a full roster after starting at rock bottom.

When he started, Guy said it would take time to rebuild the Aggies. He said it would take time to bring in freshmen and let them mature into valuable players. Guy said it would take time to climb out of the funk the program had been in. Guy has now had time, and four recruiting classes, to make the Aggies his.

Time, however, is something Guy might be running out of. Aggie fans are voting with their wallets, as attendance and support have dipped. Utah State won the final two games of the 2007 season and, if you believe the coaches and players in Logan, the time has come to build on that modest success and climb out of the WAC's basement.

But if the Aggies fail to win more than five games, Guy's plan just might be out of time.
