The Aggies did what they needed to do -- make a very impressive showing on a
national stage against a top 15 team.Now it is time to take that
success in stride and get that MWC championship under your belt this year. Go USU! Beat Ai Force! Beat Wyoming! Beat Boise State!
pacmidmajorYou sure talk a big game for a fan of a team that’s
relegated to talking smack to other teams FOR other teams. What’s the
deal? Your team can’t do anything worth while to warrant any smack talk?
I think your fans would appreciate if you stick to getting gear count numbers
at your local amusement park.
Heart breaker for the Aggies!With all the scheduling talk you have
to be careful what you ask for, legislature. Wouldn’t hurt my fealings if
Coach Whittingham made it 24-30 in a row. That would make 19 of 20 look like the
anomaly that it was, historicaly speaking.Off course, ‘margin
of defeat’ is what the moral victory folks are selling.
I wish the Utah legislature would allow Utah to schedule USU annually rather
than BYU. It is a healthier rivalry, and Utah/USU are the top two teams in the
state. Utah could use USU as the B game and it would open up a spot for a Big
10 or 12 opponent as the A game. I have reason to believe this might actually
@Pacmidmajor,You obviously didn't watch the Utah game vs Weber
State. Utah's defense is absolutely stifling and deep beyond comprehension.
They gave up a mere 15 yards total offense to Weber State, who could beat your
team mind you, in the second half while rotating in 26 different players on that
unreal D.I wish you the truth......if you can finally accept
So close! Great game. Improve throughout the season and let us see you in the
Mountain West championship game. Good luck.
@Old-n-well-maybe-not-stupid,I agree with you 100% that Utah NEEDS
to schedule a good, state school who is actually our "true" football
rival = Utah State. However, the Utah State Legislature will attack my beloved U
of U again with vengeful audits if Utah doesn't schedule a struggling Utah
County parochial school.It seems that our new AD at Utah is changing
course according to BYU's AD Tom Holmoe. We Utes can only hope that is the
case in future scheduling.All the best to U kind sir!
Too bad for the Aggies that they were not playing the utes last night or they
would have been 1-0 this morning .... Bank on it !
"And shame on the usual 3-4 immature Ute fans who can't just give a
rival a compliment "Read all comments and still looking for
those 3-4 immature Utes you write about. Saw one truly negative
comment with no obvious indication of affiliation other than Michigan State.Projection is a terrible habit.
Hat's off to the Aggies!Utah and BYU should be worried. Oh,
wait.....Utes were smart enough to avoid scheduling State.
Utah State is a very good team. They have great coaching, speed/playmakers
everywhere and can pass the rock.As I've stated a couple times
before, BYU will lose to USU(coming off a bye week) on a short week after
Washington beats the tar out of the Y in Seattle. Bank on it!
The first games of the season are a toss up, no matter the ranking. I wonder
what the score would've been if these 2 teams played each other 5 games
into the season?
Chris B. I would not say the Aggies choked. I will say a pass on 3rd and 1
late in the game was a bad call.
Congrats to USU for an awesome game. I was really pulling for them to win. And shame on the usual 3-4 immature Ute fans who can't just give a
rival a compliment without saying something about their own team or mentioning
BYU - who cares?
Utah State did a great job representing the state. It appears that USU is a
much improved team and could be a real force in the Mountain West. Good show
Big time kudos to Aggie players & coaches. They were prepared and gave 110%
on the field. Should be a great season!!
USU loss was more impressive than the Utes win over Weber
Dang, I was really hoping USU would get the win, so close! Still, USU played
well and should gain some confidence. Even though Michigan State got the win,
they should drop in the polls. Then, we will just have to see how it all plays
out. Could have been a fluke game for USU and/or Michigan State.Best
scenario is Michigan state wins their other games and so does Utah State (except
the BYU game). Go Aggies!
Congratulations on a great game by Utah State. Wow, that defense was really fun
to watch and the offense did almost enough to pull of the upset. This is
one more game that shows why there is really little separation between G5s and
P5 schools. Being in a P5 league, a G5 league or independent really
doesn’t matter that much. USU could hang with anyone in a P5 conference on
any given day. It’s too bad that they have to go clear to Michigan
to play a P5 team. Seems to me that their should be someone closer to home other
than BYU that they could play. Oh well. I guess I am only dreaming.
Great game and effort by USU. I was pulling for them to win. So close but
clearly they are a much improved team.
CougarForever - Holladay, Utah I give the Aggies the compliment much
to my own dismay because I really don't like to see USU do well in football
-- I don't want two in-state rivals vying with us for football supremacy
(even one is a bit too much).----Utah is vying USC for
supremacy.BYU is trending for 3rd in State.Utah State
looks good, BYU will be a big underdog at LES.
And another moral victory for the Aggies and a moral loss for Michigan state.
It never gets old watching usu choke!Go p5 Michigan
I love Jordan Love! That kid can play. 2 minutes away from the win.
Dang, I was really pulling for the Aggies! They may be the real deal this year.
Any objective observer would have to judge this to have been a great game! Utah State impressed despite ultimately not prevailing. I give the
Aggies the compliment much to my own dismay because I really don't like to
see USU do well in football -- I don't want two in-state rivals vying with
us for football supremacy (even one is a bit too much). I have to
acknowledge that I was particularly impressed with Utah State's passing
game and I was absolutely stunned by how well the Aggies were able to hang with
the highly regarded Spartans (obviously Michigan State was able to shut down
USU's running game). I had predicted a very easy victory over
USU on Oct 5. Now I am thinking that maybe the Aggies are capable of giving us
more trouble than I previously supposed.
@Henry Drummond "I think the BYU/USU game just got more
interesting."Disagree...I think it just got less interesting.
Before the season, I thought it would be a semi-close win for USU. Now I think
USU is going to absolutely work BYU-P.
If I had a nickel for everytime USU takes on a huge opponent and comes just shy
of a major upset.That was an impressive game on a big stage!
Wow! I think the BYU/USU game just got more interesting. Aggie’s are good
Great game Utah State
