USU will be favored in all four of the remaining games. Even after the lose of
key players the Aggies are the most likely Utah team to finish 8 and 4.
Agreed, Big Blue. Our depth has improved substantially over the last few years.
Because of that, I see no reason why we can't win out, even with the
injuries. DeMartino destroyed the Lobos and he was banged up. The bye week will
help everyone get back to full strength for the final stretch. The
only team I'm a bit concerned about is Colorado State. They always seem to
give us some fits. And they OWNED Wyoming on their home turf. Glad we get
another bye before that one!
I wouldn't be surprised if USU wins out and ties Boise State for the
Division. USU has a legit defense and more than enough going for it on offense
to run the table. Good luck Ags the rest of the way.
Big blue,I agree that USU could go 8-4 as will BYU. Utah will go 5-7 and
miss out again on a bowl. This will make the best teams in the state 1. BYU, 2.
USU, and three will be a tossup between Weber and Utah.
The most likely scenario is that USU wins the remaining games on its schedule.
Unfortunately this will just mean we are tied with Boise. Since Boise owns the
tie-breaker they will go to the Conference Championship game. But the bright
side is that we will still go to a nice bowl - most likely one with warmer
weather than Idaho! :-)To be tied with the Division winner in our
first year in the Mountain West Conference is a pretty good way to start. Next
year is shaping up to be a very enjoyable year as well.
I agree with the writer. However I think the Ags win out and hopefully, very
hopefully the Rams, Cowboys, or Aztecs sneak up on the Broncos and the Ags play
for the championship. Despite all the injuries the Ags are looking tough.
Another week to get Garretson ready and USU will be fine. Love the Bull on the
Looking at the rest of the schedule USU has the easiest opponents compared to
BYU and the Ute's so USU should easily get six wins this year, you would
have to be ignorant not to think USU is going to a bowl even if you aren't
an USU fan.
Still not sure how good (or bad) New Mexico is, but the Aggies dominated from
the outset. If the Aggies can continue to control both lines of scrimmage the
way they did against the Lobos it's entirely likely that they can win out.
An 8-4 season given the loss of Chuckie would be a great accomplishment. Go Aggies!
I agree with you Stang, will the Aggies make it or not. All Aggies hope they
make it, Cougar fans in general hope they make it. Ute fans in general hope the
Aggies will make it. "Although you want people to think you know." I
couldn't say it any better about yourself.
Very well put Aggie84! Very well put and very true. :-)
I don't think Aggie or Cougar fans have yet developed the detestation for
each other that sometimes accompanies a rivalry, and I hope we never do. Good
luck, Aggies, go and take it!I keep trying, but I just can't
bring myself to cheer for the Utes. With a straight face anyway...
Can I mark that down Stang that the Aggies won't go bowling. If we win 6
games going into the last game against Wyoming. I will invite you one more time
to come to the game and expect you to come. If we don't have six games
going into the Wyoming game I will wear a t-shirt to the game saying "Stang
was right, the Aggies are pathetic."
@Aggie84I won't be there.
