    Lightening Lad makes fun of an adult being called "Timmy" or "Chuckie", but uses a screen name typical of a 5 year old superhero wannabe. How ironic....GO AGGIES

    What's up Lightning Lad? Earth to LL: We are sensitive to losing a coach, in case you didn't notice Anderson left the half a horse USU/ WAC to go to big ten Wisconsin. And rumors already flew that Wells was off to Wake Forest.
    And as for "Chuckie" that is the perfect name, flies better than Chuck or Charles for sure and is a name that sticks! But I would call him The Chuckster, Chuckmaster, Chuckchuck, or Chuckemup if he can resume his career where he left off.

    How we perform on defense will depend a lot on the secondary, which has been inconsistent this year.

    Go Aggies!

    Matt Wells' friends call him 'Wellsy.' No, I'm not one of them, I call him "sir" on the rare occasion I actually shake his hand or speak to him.

    Chuckie was Chuckie before he ever got here. Both he and Wells arrived at the same time on USU's campus.

    Whining about this is just a potshot. People who want to feel better about themselves take potshots. Real live critics point out the matchup problems and concede where USU is stronger as well as where they're weaker.

    Congratulations to the Aggies, what a ton of adversity they have overcome this year to be where they are tomorrow night. Lightening Lad....seriously you really have to stretch to complain about what coaches call each other, that came off of just really lame. You must be related to Chris B. The whole state of Utah should be behind the Ags. When they do well it makes BYU and Utah look better. And Utah needs the help. Go Ags, this one will be a challenge. Fresno is on the same level as BYU and Boise State.

    I love that we're important enough for people who are not Aggie fans to expend energy telling us their opinion of how terrible we are.

    If the secondary blows it it'll be ugly, but I think they've got it together.

    Here is the kind of opportunity that defines ones' program! Conference championship with a national audience exposure! It doesn't get any better than that! Rooting hard for the Aggies to step up and make it happen. This is the kind of opportunity that my Cougars often squandered, playing a tough opponent in front of national audience.

    Go Aggies! This Cougar fan is looking forward to a great and exciting game! Go bring home the hardware!

    This will be a good test for both teams, it's exciting to see the Aggies now play a good team with Gerretson having some experience under his belt instead of having to be thrown to the wolves like he probably felt against Boise State. It's going to be a fun game to watch, especially with a national audience on CBS.

    Go Aggies, bring home a conference championship!

    Go Aggies! Hope Coach Wells stays with the Aggies after the season....

    Earth calling Logan, on what basis do you think Wells is an attractive candidate to go anywhere? Heavens playing for the conference championship in a no-horse league has really got your head in the clouds. Read my lips, he is not going anywhere.

    "I've got a lot of respect for Timmy,’’ said Wells"
    Good Grief, are we in preschool? Timmy and Chuckie, how disgusting for full grown adults to call each other baby names.
    I would love to see USU win this game, Fresno has no defense period, and neither team can beat a decent FBS team, but it should be fun. Never can the MWC say they aren't given a fair shake, as the worst FBS conference they have up to two times the bowl bids as the other mid majors with 6. Without any quality wins Fresno reached the top 15. Quoting Chadd Cripp with the Idaho Statesman, the MWC finishes in the cellar for the second straight year, with no wins vs BCS teams, and not a single win over a team that finishes the season with a winning record. The claim to fame is Fresno's 52-51 win over 5-7 Rutgers at home. Their other n/c wins were over Idaho, and UC-Davis, the Aggies chip in with a great victory over one win Webber State, while losing to the rest of the state.
    But the hype is on as if either team matters. Viva La Raza

    Aggies smash mouth defense will make or break untested Fresno offense.

    Over-rated cup cake schedule.

    Best of luck to the Aggies. I admire their determination not to let Keeton's injury define their season. Well done.

    The U is fortunate to get FSU next year, after Carr has moved on to the NFL but the game won't be as entertaining without him.
