    Sambone, it was much more than Special Teams. Our Special Teams is certainly not very good.. However, Wisconsin's linebackers were excellent, and all over us.. And Monte Ball had a very good 2nd half.

    The Aggies were slightly better than Wisconsin this game except for special teams, which clearly cost us the game.Oh well, we cannot win them all. But the team is miles ahead of where they were a few years ago, so that is saying something. I think we will get at least 9 wins this year. It is going to be a great season!

    And as for that thespian down south, just ignore him. The thunder-chickens clearly have little to be happy about after their poor start this season.

    Right Stang, but we blew your team out of the water. We beat UU, and we could very well beat BYU... Nothing pompus just results. We got beat, and its not a big deal. Not many teams go undefeated. Funny you just root against the Aggies, and have nothing to root for yourself.

    Blue Blood,

    I never said we would beat you. I said we might beat you. Two totally different words with two totally different meanings. I may be a thespian but I know a lot about football. Now I did say you guys hung in there with Wisc. But you found a way to lose. None of you know anything about me or anything about real football. Just in your little blue country which only recently became a good team. I'm am sick and tired of you pompus aggie fan's thinking you are the hottest thing on the planet and talking down to everyone else. You finally got over the hump and beat a lousy Utah team and you lost to a supirior Big10 team. I could go on and on about my knowledge of football but none of you would see it. USU lost to a better team now get over it. I've gotten over the loss to two better teams this year and moved on with my teams season. Would be doesn't count in this sport Ross.

    The Aggies should have won this game, they led and neutralized Wisconsin, the errors that let to the two touchdowns in the third quarter were huge. Kinda of wondered if the Ags believed they could beat this team, the answer was definitely. Imagine where we would be today if the Ags had not stumbled a little in this game, they would be 3-0, have won over several good teams, and would be basking in some additional sweet national attention. But no, just like Auburn a year ago, win a game in the trenches but loose on the scoreboard.

    stang08 is a thespian that knows nothing about football. He thinks suu has a football program. Go Aggies!

    Everybody should know that stang08 knows nothing about college football. He is a thespian that attended suu and is in the tank for the suu football team. He said USU had no shot at beating suu, the utes, or the badgers. That right there speaks for its self. Don't play into his little games about trashing every team in the state while proclaiming that suu is the best thing out there. He did that same thing on hjnews unil we all started ignoring him. Go Aggies!

    USU is becoming known nationwide as a good football program. Easily the best team in Utah. Hold on to Gary !!

    You asked for it and I'll give it to you. The aggies screwed up. While they hung in there against a supirior team they found a way to lose. And for those that say USU almost won I have one thing to say. Almost only counts in horseshoes, handgrinades, and atom bombs. If you thought USU was gonna win you need to get your head checked for brain damage.

    It's still a pretty tall order to beat Wisconsin at camp Randall any year. I am proud of Utah State. Four years ago this conversation would have been unthinkable. Gary Anderson has had the job of cleaning the losing tradition and mindset out of Utah State. He is doing fantastic. I remember sitting in Romney Stadium watching the Aggies play Stephen F. Austin and not being 100% sure they were going to win the game. GO AGGIES!

    Our defense played really well last night. However, losing to Wisconsin is taking a step back for this Aggie Football Program. Utah State had no business losing to a struggling Wisconsin team. We were bigger, faster, stronger, and more talented at every position.

    USU has the best coach and best QB in the state, hands down.

    Oh Aggies... that was a tough one.
    I would have liked to see Nick Diaz in there kicking.
    We had Wisconsin on the ropes.
    It was a fun trip, Camp Randall is very historic and the fans of Wisconsin were very gracious and nice.
    Looking forward to exciting games to come.
    Things are going to be OK in Aggie Nation!!!

    Utah State hey, AGGIES ALL THE WAY!

    Deja Vu all over again. After the big win at Utah I thought USU had finally figured out how to win the big one. If the Ags had beat Wisconsin they would have been in the top 25 this week. Can't wait to play BYU.

    Usu is the best team in Utah.

    Utah State has a legitimate claim to being the best team in the state this year.

    OUCH! That was a real heart breaker. The Aggies played hard were in a position to take the win at the end. Realy thought this was the national game that would go our way.

    USU will still have a great season. This was the toughest game left on the schedule.

    Go Big Blue!!!

    cue Stang trying to rub in the success of another team, and put salt in the wounds... Yes, we got beat. Simple as that. Our kickers are inconsistent (at best).. can we move on? At least we don't celebrate early like one fan base, and the holder of another team...
