    Yeah Snow might win(?!), but only because of the D-I Prop 48 kids and other players who are not immediate academic qualifiers who go to JCs to play and get eligible.

    Not to mention other players that are "hidden" by top D-I programs to get them reps and full game experience while waiting out the stud above them on the D-I depth chart to either graduate, get injured, or leave early for the NFL Draft.

    How do you think Croshaw was so successful at Dixie College? Same formula!

    If Snow College recruited the same way NCAA institutions had to, it would be a whole different ball game.

    Hawaii is having QB problems, #1 Graunke is not practicing with the team. The offense sputters at best, too many intangibles with new WR's and QB's. 2 RB's are out with injuries right now, Offensive line is not established.

    Defense is good, LB's are solid, very solid. However, UH is flying commercial to play Tim Tebow and company in FL, and that's a long flight to lose big on National TV. UH will overlook Weber State, and they will be very ripe for an upset. last year northern colorado was in the game until latter part of 3rd quarter, and UH had all of their big guns then...

    do you believe........it can happen.

    Mac is by far a better coach than Whittingham......But WSU couldn't beat the Snow Badgers on their best day.....GO SNOW!

    Looking forward to seeing Coach Mac play the Utes. It's more an exhibition game for Utah but it'll be nice to give him a nice homecoming.

    I hope Weber beats Utah. They might just be able to do it this year.

    Oh yeah, watch Maile lead block. He is the linebacker killer. Its why he's all big sky.

    Higgins is a stud and so is etuati and smith, but look out for Maile, this guy is legit NFL stats. Strong as an ox, good head. I hope he gets alot of touches this year.

    Coach Mac has all the ingredients to cook up something special this year. They have made some adjustments on the defensive side of the ball; and Higgins has worked tirelessly all summer to better himself. I look for the offense to pick up where it left off, and the defense to answer the call this year.

    Good luck to Coach Mac and his 'Cats.

    I am Utes fan and a McBride fan as well. I wish both Weber St. the best as well as McBride. You know it will be bittersweet for Mac to come back to Rice-Eccles. He brought life to a football program that hadn't had any in a long time. Good luck Wildcats!!!

    I am PUMPED for this year's team! The Big Sky is strong this year but I think this is WSU's best chance in a long time to win the conference and make the FCS playoffs. Go Cats!
