    Or you can keep talking because that's what you do best tinplater. That's why you have never played a down in your life. Let's see how long it take you to fire back with a low comment. I agree with Striker completly. Well said man well said. And tiplater and I finally agree on something. USU has no chance of winning.

    Striker, good points and I agree, except that USU did finish big games last year against Utah and La Tech in OT. But I think a USC win is likely, simply because their team is loaded with four and five star athletes, we are lucky to get twos.

    A year ago, I thought this game was unwinnable for usu. Now it seems like they can win. USC is in shambles. Bad part for USC is their strength is their defense....one of the best in the nation. USU always does awful offensively on the road vs. any team with a decent defense. Only put up 3 vs BYU, and about 12 at Wisconsin. With supposed better talent at USC, it would take an A game for USU to win. I almost picked usu, but have to go with the home team and usu's bad record of never breaking through. If usu wins, this team will be for real and I'll consider Wells a better coach than Anderson.

    However, I look for USU to fight the first half, and be tired and lose it at the end. Just like at Utah and every other big place they play at. The team doesn't know how to finish a big game.

    Come to Eccles and I'll prove you wrong.


    This year in the present day at this moment in time you have done nothing to prove me wrong. it was/is Sorenson. I thought they would and I was wrong. Let's see how much of a "fight" you put up against USC. Let's just wait and see.

    One thing you have to admit about Stang0, he persists with his out of the box opinions despite a record of being incorrect over and over. For this season he predicted Aggie failure because of new coach, new system, new players, and has contended that Keeton is nothing special, not the best QB in the state. My favorite of his was when he predicted that SUU would give the Aggies all they could handle last year! His best QB was Sorenson or Max Hall (can't really figure out what he was claiming in that regard). But I love his comments, they bring a smile on a dull day.

    Man, Stango is a serious candidate for funniest person ever! Virtually every post from him says practically the same thing: "I hate the Aggies." Double YAWN. Repeating the same idea ad nauseam is remarkably unoriginal, Stango.

    As far as I can tell, you are SUU's only fan. I've seen just about none of them post a thing on the DesNews, the Trib, or the HJ News... or any online news forum, actually.

    If there is more than one SUU fan, I sure haven't met them. And I have MANY friends that attended SUU just a couple of years ago. Not one of them talked T-bird athletics.

    And the Eccles Coliseum is a joke; it makes Romney Stadium look like Clemson's Memorial Stadium.

    And he says we live in a dream world!

    I'm unoriginal? Are you kidding me? And in case you missed it the other thousand times I've said it I'll enlighten you again. I'm not the only fan. Come to one of our games and you'll eventually figure it out. Keep draming Go Big Blue. I just love how the aggies live in a dream world.


    Talk about offensive. Let's get this straight. He can't play on peoples sensitivities but you can? How exactly does that work? You've done more then he could ever think of doing. Oh how do you make me laugh Mars my friend. Oh how do you make me laugh.

    @Samuri Jack

    I just did.


    No one knows what's gonna happen. The aggies may suprise everyone but I seriously doubt it. I'm thinking realistically. I don't live in a dream like some people.

    The different hats you wear... it's odd. Stick with one account for the sake of simplicity, please.

    I've already spelled it out. You're not getting it because you don't want to get it. Your comments and especially the constant qualifiers in your references to Utah and Utah State's football programs... They're jabs. They're little swipes intended to draw an emotional reaction. You play on people's sensitivities and it's just plain wrong and immature.

    You emphatically state that Utah "EARNED" (all caps, too!) their way into the PAC-12, but you'll note that I already said as much.

    The problem isn't Utah's strengths in academics and football. I'm jealous of Utah's accomplishments there - I would love it if USU were in the PAC-12. The problem is the constant dismissal and denigration of USU. It's you, not the University of Utah that folks have a problem with.

    I'll repeat myself, and then I'm done: No one likes the guy you're trying to portray.

    I don't see whats wrong with simply stating we are a member of the prestigious Pac 12, having EARNED that invitation through multiple recent undefeated seasons, multiple BCS bowls, multiple BCS wins, multiple top 10 finishes.

    USC likewise is a member of the Prestigious Pac 12 Conference. I support our fellow Pac 12 brethren more than I support usu.

    USU is a fun little regional program and I'm glad they're in the community, but they aren't at Utah's level. I'm going to support first and foremost my team, then my conference brothers.

    I'll wake you up when I'm offended.

    It's more annoying than offensive, Chris B. I think the Utes and Ute fans have every reason in the world to be proud of the accomplishments of their football team and their university as a whole. But you do them a disservice with the way you come off on here and the worst part is that it's entirely intentional.

    Your posts are condescending and it appears you quite enjoy the attention we give you. If comment sections were like rooms at a party, and you said the things you said, you would either never be taken seriously and ignored until you left on your own, or people would encourage you to seek help for being so anti-social. No one likes the guy you're trying to portray.

    I'm frustrated that articles about USU get turned into a platform for you to camp on and take the opportunity to potshot USU. It's hypocritical and I (foolishly, perhaps) expect better out of people.

    So let me get this straight, moderators. Chris B gets to be condescending and unctuous but if I call him out on that behavior with sarcasm - MY comment gets rejected for being disruptive? How are his comments not disruptive?

    As for the Aggies...

    We can win this one. I'm pulling for you, boys. Let's get it done.

    Aggies are due for a big marquee win. Vegas has the Aggies as a 6.5 point underdog. I expect a close game, but if it becomes one sided it will be the Aggies pulling away.

    It will be a really hard-fought game. If the USC squad that showed up against Wazzou plays us, we win. If the USC squad that showed up against Boston College plays us, we lose.

    And just once I wish SUU's only fan would say something original. Just once. It would actually be interesting for a change.

    I do expect a loss, but disagree...the Aggies can win this game. But it won't be easy. By Stang0's thinking, no point in playing the game at all. However Stango's track record for predicting Aggie defeats is abysmal so hopefully he will bless the Ag's with good Karma this Saturday.

    Not sure you can say that, considering they gave the Utes all they could handle, and dominated Air Force, then worked Weber State just like we did.

    If anything, SC needs to continue their good play, or Chuckie will light them up. I do root for all PAC-12 teams when they're not playing the Utes, but even I will be rooting for the Aggs when they go to the Coliseum! Go Chuckie!

    Go Utes!

    Expect a loss for the aggies at USC. No matter what they say it's just not a game the aggies can win.
