    I think the team will do just fine next year. We have 16 starters returning and the DL, WR, and QB coaches will be back as well. And Wells knows how to run an efficient offense.

    This is not your father's Utah State program. Increased funding, upgraded facilities, and better recruits have helped make Utah State football relevant again.

    Keep drinking that dark blue cool aid. The truth is u may well be back to square one, which is not a very nice place.

    Andersen is the primary reason for the Aggies success. I think Wells deserves a shot and you have to give the USU administration some trust here in the hire.

    Whether this guy is the next Chris Petersen, to fit your example runnerguy50, it's hard to know. It may seem like Andersen may have been the primary reason behind the success of Utah.

    I am not a fan of bringing in the asst coach unless you think the asst was the reason the head coach was succesful. I would have gone back to Utah and hired the defensive cord. This hire was a big mistake. I hope I'm wrong.

    I would agree but one must also realize that college football is a coach's league. Without a great coach, a program won't compete for long. College coaches have to be great recruiters, develop a top-notch organization and make critical game day decisions. Hopefully, this new coach is up to the challenge. Some programs can replace a great coach with another great coach or at least a competent coach. The latter would be my bet here. Hopefully, the Aggie fans will be reasonable with their expectations...
