    Easy for the defense to shine against a high school offense ranked 120th in the nation.

    Bingham would roll byu this year.

    But way to take care of business aggies.

    New Mexico is licking their chops knowing their only win this year will be byu!

    As an Aggie fan I pull a comment post game from Austin Collie . . . when you are living right on and off the field:) You Cougar fans know the rest.

    Nice work Aggies!!
    I have to have a little fun, actually pretty impressed by the comments for the most part.

    I remember so many condescending comments over the years from BYU fans, its good to see most comments are above board.

    I think its funny that nobody is giving USU much credit for this win. People act like BYU is at its ultimate low while USU is playing as great as it possibly can.

    I'll admit that BYU is not at the same level they've been in the past, and are starting a lot of underclassmen. But nobody has really talked about the same situation at USU. (Probably because BYU has an underclassman at QB while USU has a senior) But USU has been playing a lot of underclassmen as well. They've had to because they've been hit so hard by injuries. (yes, I realize that by the end of the night last night, BYU had racked up quite a few as well) But last week USU had to pull 2 or 3 players off of their redshirts because they were so thin.

    USU still has a lot to prove, and a long way to go, but, for the most part, this was a fairly young USU team that beat a fairly young BYU team last night. I believe both teams are going to get better in the future.

    @ Henry Drummond

    I disagree with you regarding the better athletes. USU has far better athletes as it showed last night. True athletes have speed, and USU has plenty of that. USU will only get faster with Gary AndersEn recruiting.

    Its called royal blue, just sayin. The Cougars are victims of there poor coaching decision to write this this season off as a rebuilding season when they they clearly did not need to.

    The Heaps Hype machine has turned out to be the coach's excuse for rebuilding. It simply does not half to be so, there are better players that simply are not being given the position starts.

    This is going to be a complete laugher of a season. The "y" is going to get beat next week by SDSU and the only possibility of a win in the remainder ot this 2010 season might be the Lobo's and the Rebel's but even these games are huge question marks.

    Yes this is the sadist "Y" football product in the last 30 years.

    I'm glad to see Gary Anderson get some credit for last night's game. BYU certainly had the better athletes but Utah State did a great job anyway. I hope this proves to be a turning point in USU's resurgence in football. Great job Aggies.

    What a beat down. Great job Aggies. Now that BYU gave back the wagon wheel do you think they could give back the blue they took from USU? They totally stole the colors from the Aggies. Go back to the bright blue that you had and give us our colors back!!!

    The comment by The Hailstorm, should be taken to heart by every Cougar follower. Football success is amazingly cyclical-- today's winners are tomorrow's chumps and visa versa. Unless a program is willing to cheat and prositute itself like so many in the "Big Six" conferences have, lasting football success cannot be sustained indefinitely. BYU has won for 30-plus years, and is to be congratualted for it. Be eventually it runs out. As USU can attest after years of success in the 60's and 70's, the night can be very long before the day returns. Now is a time of humility. Your team is young, your quarterback even younger. Accept it now that "the glory years are history" and your journey through the coming "long night" to a return to respectability will be much easier for you. And, as the Aggies can attest, with the right choices it will, indeed, come.

    Great Work Aggies.. Kudos for you coach Anderson.
    I loved watching the confused and bewildered from the tds. What a great game to watch .. and on the national stage. Anderson's stock goes up and Mend and Maul's is still plummeting. So much for the top ten receiving corps and their version of, " Happy Hands "
    All week long the blue bloods were declaring victory and instead they show on national TV as uncoached buffoons. Maybe with all of that living the right way their came a calling for humility. If so the Cougars got a healthy dose along with a lot of negative P.R.
    For years all that was found in these comment sections from the BYU faithful had been nothing less than the little bantam roosters crowing about the past 25 years and how highly respected their program is. Last night proved otherwise.
    BYU may want to get it through their heads that those glory years are history,like Pearl Harbor. What we have today is reality.
    That is not a top ten receiving corps, the Cougars looked bad on national T.V., coaching is suspect, and recruits are not as believed.
    No joy in Mudville.

    Give credit where credit is due...USU's defense was outstanding last night. The corners were lock down and the line was stout against the run. USU's defense lived up to every expectation of a Gary Anderson coached team.

    Congratulations to the USU coaching staff and the Aggie team. You guys were down 11 starters but executed flawlessly in front of a national audience. Well done, indeed!!!!

    Don't feel special Aggies, we have made every Defense look like a team of all americans this year...

    Our Defense has also made the Option look like an unstoppable scheme.
