Great game to watch! Aggies nearly pulled the upset. The part of the game that I
think the Aggies really blew an opportunity to pull the upset was during that
five minute stretch late in the 2nd half when the Aggies lead 52-48, and the
Aztecs didn't make a field goal and had 0 points during that stretch. If
Utah State would've made a couple shots during that period to stretch the
lead to 7 or 8 points, they'd win this game. Gotta credit San Diego State
for playing gritty defense during their slump. Aggie fans should see this game
in good perspective. Back in the good old days in the WAC, USU would go 18-0 at
home for the season. Welcome to the Mountain West Conference. Those undefeated
days at home in the WAC are over but that's because we're in a better
conference so we have to expect losses like this on occasion. Hey, we took the
number 7 team in the nation in overtime and almost beat them. Carry on and beat
New Mexico on Tuesday.
BYU looses in triple OT. How many close games Utah lost? Now USU joins the
club. Why can't Utah teams finish off their opponents. It seems to be a
pattern. Can't remember the last time a team from Utah won a close game or
pulled off a big road win. Close doesn't count.
re NeilT: Utah Jazz won a close one last night. Comes down to who has prepared
better, who wants it more. Utah State only got to shoot 7 free throws in an
overtime win at home? Maybe they need to attack the basket more on offense.
So every game comes down to who wants it more or is better prepared? Sometimes
the better team just wins. Sometimes there are injuries or fluke plays that
decide games, it's not just who wants it more.
That was an incredible game. Probably either the 2nd or 3rd best basketball game
on any level I've ever been to. The best I've went to is still when
Maryland upset Duke the year the Terps won the National Championship! Go Aggies!
Even when they lose the fan's still praise them. Don't they know the
@ Stang08What I praise is the effort. Yes, Stang we know we lost.
Losing is part of the game. I'd expect any reasonable fan will look at a
basketball schedule and realize their team is going to receive some losses. Do
you with your team? This is one of those home games for the Aggies that I knew a
potential loss could occur as I looked at the schedule. SDSU is a good team
you'd expect to pick a number and get in the losing line. Kansas had too at
home of all places which I'd concede is a tougher home court environment
than the Spectrum. But even with losses you can still take positives from them
especially against a top 10 opponent. Quite frankly the loss against Air Force
stung a lot more than this one because we had no business losing that game. For
many odd pickers, Utah State had no business taking this game to overtime. I
believe the Aggies will be a better team despite the loss because of the
confidence boost they received that they took the 7th ranked team in the nation
down the wire.
Why would you have a confidence boost when you lost?
Stang0, what kind of confidence boost does SUU have with only one win sixteen
losses? Part of being a fan is supporting your team when they lose. I would
expect you to continue to support your birds even though they are obviously a
very poor basketball team this year. Why shouldn't Aggies be proud of
their game against #7 team in the country? Taken to overtime, great effort.
San Diego moved up to number 5 in the polls after beating USU in overtime. That
says a whole lot about the Aggies effort against a top 5 team. The wins will
come. Love the MWC!
@Go Big BlueIt says they lost to a top 5 team. I'm not proud
of my team when they lose. A loss is a loss. The aggies have forgotten that.
The Aggies competed at a high level. Something that thunderbirds no very little
What has happened to Medlin? This is the second game he has given up the rock to
someone else to take the last shot.
Stang0, the Aggies still deserve praise don't you think? What do you have
to say about SUU, anything? Losing to #5 team in the country in overtime is a
whole lot different that losing by 20 to an unranked team like SUU.
@Go Big BlueRemember when we took you to the wire? You only won by
3 points. The aggie basketball team has never been very good. @tinplaterNo the don't. SUU stinks this year. They
haven't been able to pull it together and get more then one win. It's
no secret my team isn't very good. Let's get off that for a minute
and get back to talking about the not so good aggies and how they probably
won't have to embarrass themselves in the NCAA's this year. You lost
and you are still giving the quiters praise. That is sad. If you took them to
overtime why couldn't you close the game out? Because you aren't very
First of all. Stang0, taking the number 5 team in the country to overtime is
something the vast majority of teams can't do. And someone has to win,
someone has to lose. I'm not saying the Aggies are good this
year..I'm saying I support them because I am a fan, win or lose. But for
you, if you don't win, there is nothing in it. Sad way to view sports. It
isn't about being the best, or even among the best, it is about competing
hard, playing to the best of your ability. A concept you can't seem to
Why couldn't you close it out? Sadly "playing to the best of your
ability" is something the aggies can't do. Were you around when I
commented on the SUU playoff article? I was proud even though they lost. But
for you, it's the WAC 2.0. One of the easiest conferences in the world and
you can't win. What does that say about the aggies? They are horrible.
Stang0, if the Aggies are "horrible" then what is SUU with one win in 16
tries? Give me an adjective. At least the Aggies have won more than they have
lost. And if you think the MWC is an easy conference, you are clearly exposing
your lack of basketball knowledge.
Glad you're keeping up with SUU basketball. Yes we are horrible but we
aren't talking about the Thunderbirds. When am I not "exposing my lack
of basketball knowledge" in your eyes? The WAC 2.0 is easy. After all,
they let USU in. Way back when and by that I mean when TCU, Utah, and BYU were
in the conference no one could say that. Since TCU went to the BIg12, Utah went
to the PAC12, and BYU went on their own the WAC 2.0 has been really laughable.
I know you disagree and you are going to say I don't know what I'm
talking about but by saying that you are not making a good defense. It just
means you can't come up with a statement to back it up. I just did so
there you go.
Stang0:1. A true fan supports his team win or lose..that is why we Aggies
support USU, you apparently only support success.2. The MWC (WAC 2.0 to
you) has the currently ranked #5 team that USU took to overtime.3. The
Pac 12 has #1 ArizonaThat is it for both conferences in the top 25. No
Utah, No BYU, No SUU. To disparage the MWC in basketball just reflects upon
@tinplaterI never said I only support success. It's just funny
to me that the aggies aren't successful in the WAC 2.0. Took to overtime
and lost. They couldn't close it out as usual. So we agree the PAC12 is
better since they have number 1. Same old comment with no substance to back it
up. Utah suck they are just in a better conference. Not sure how BYU is and
yes SUU basketball sucks. How does it reflect upon me? You always say
something like that and never give a reason. Why is that? Because you
don't have time to make one up.
