    John L. Smith will be named coach at Weber State tomorrow. I know that for a fact. I beleive it is a good hire and WSU is lucky to have a coach with his resume willing to take over and hopefully continue the to build upon the McBride era.

    You know something we don't? I am pretty certain they will announce John L. Smith, too. You don't get a coach with his credentials applying for an FCS job. I think the reason McBride didn't like him is because they beat the U of U two of the years Smith was there at USU. Before that, USU was supposed to play the role of gracious loser.

    If he is announced coach, he will be great. I love his personality and how he gets his teams fired up to play, and thanks to McBride, he should have a team with great talent out of the gate. I also like the fact that he has ties to Weber State. Should be some exciting football next Fall!

    John L Smith will do great Weber is lucky to get him. I know that when he was at Utah State he and Ron McBride did not get along at all.

    I hope the new coach has every character trait Coach McBride showed...he was/is one of the great unhearlded coaches in the Nation...I only wish my boy had played for him.
