    As long as Brent Guy is Coach it doesn't matter who the QB is. All the offense is doing is running the ball up the middle or calling a quarterback draw.

    This young man has not been given a chance to show his full potiential. I am surprised the coach hasn't wised up. Others are right about getting a lot of players from California. Jase is a very smart and amazing man. He doesn't speak ill of others and I respect him for that. Good going and good luck

    To all you outsiders that think USU should go down a division. It won't happen, so give it up. We Aggies are proud of our team and are true fans. Sometimes there needs to be pain to get to a competitive place. I for one am glad we are still in the Bowl Championship division, or whatever they call it now. True Blue through and through. I do support BYU, but only for Religious reasons. Go Aggies!

    I wish USU would recruit more kids from Cache Valley, at least the locals would have a reason to go watch a bad team. Even the best kids from up here barely get talked to by USU, it makes no sense. Why not at least play kids the local fans want to watch instead of some thugs from Cali.

    A good coach can't fix a sinking ship. USU is a great university but it needs to drop football or move down to a less competetive league. Is it better to be a big fish in a small pond or a minnow in the ocean? Montana State and Montana are very competetive in the Big Sky Conference. The Ags could make an in-state rivalry with Weber or Southern Utah. It makes financial sense. The fans will come back for a winner.

    They play football in Logan?

  • Forced out!!

    Longshore is not with the team either. Guy keeps forcing these players out!! How dare he force this kid to go on a mission. I guess players never leave BYU or Utah for personal reasons. What a jerk!! The Aggies can't keep anyone!! Wait, don't tell BYU that another Aggie QB is on a mission.

    Wise decision by the young man. Better to retreat to fight another day. Maybe Guy should recognize the intelligence of this player. Guy may want to contact Okie State about a defense cord. job because that is what that team is missing and Guy may be just exactly who they need.

    Maybe we Aggie fans should just be greatful for an article about our team. But someone should inform the writer of the article that Ben Longshore is not currently with the team either. He left on a mission this summer.

    utah state refuses to sign d-1 calibur in-state kids in favor of cali kids.Having grown up in cali,playing ball in cali,utah athletes are every bit as good-----and in the case of utah state BRENT GUY has no idea of what a d-1 player is. we may as hire a new coach----- from CALIFORNIA

    Having also grown up in cali I can tell you one of the main reasons why USU (et al) HAS to recruit from out of State its simple mathetmatics actually. There are three (formerly known as D-1A) Universities in the State of Utah all basically vying for the same atheletes. There are 2.5 million people in Utah. There is 40 million people in California. Now tell me that it makes more sense to recruit in-state exclusively? No way! There are plenty of good atheletes in Utah, no doubt, but there are not even enough of them to field one decent squade. Enough to fill the roster at Weber? Yea. But enough to fill the roster at Utah? USU? Or BYU? Not even close.

  • Why risk it?

    The young man obviously sees the writing on the wall. The teams USU plays will wear down the line and he would have to run for his life.

    I dont think anybody pushed him out of the program. He was having success in a business venture and decided to pursue that. It wasnt a decision against anything but for something.

    Looks like aggie coaches pushing another local kid out of the program. Let's see how many Cali kids we can put in a program.

    How about we stay on topic here. I don't care who reported the story first.

    Hopefully, this can turn in the Aggies favor. A little stiff competition for that QB job might actually play to the Aggies benefit.

    Guy is needs to name the starter before one week before the game. This is bad coaching, we will be talking qb and 0-12 all year long. Good luck Jase,

    I wonder, DesNews, if you guys ever get tired of rewriting the Trib stories because they always get the stories first. Just wondering....

    Sounds like a smart young man. Good luck Jase.
