This pick demonstrates growing respect for USU and, seems about right. USU
enjoys high expectations, but is still the underdog. Good position to be in. In
Chuckie (and really good defense) We Trust.
This is not a demonstration of how good USU is, but of how weak this division
is. USU's schedule is about as weak as you can get, with the only real
test at BSU, which makes it easier to rank them higher. Wyoming may be a big
surprise with that amazing coach staff coming in. This conference is still BSU
and everyone else with only a few teams having a very good year now and then.
It's a BSU/FSU conference to lose. They are head over heels better than
the rest in this conference, even with BSU taking a big drop off. ++++
I would've thought USU would be picked number 1 seeing as how they
aren't only the best team in the WAC 2.0 but clearly the best team in the
country. They also have to best QB in the country even though he only plays 3-4
games a year then watches his dreams get dashed from the bench. Why isn't
the best team and best QB in the nation ranked number 1 in the WAC 2.0?
It is clear that Stang0 is an ardent USU fan…how else could you explain
his posting on every USU Aggie football article? Great to have your support,
Stang0. The Aggies are going to be an exciting team to follow this year.
@striker,You are right, the Aggies are not at the level of USC, Alabama,
or other p5 nationally recognized programs. But they are considered a threat to
win their conference. Would you dump on Harvard because they were picked to be
second in the Ivy? USU is competitive, in their conference (something that
can't be said for the Utes), for the first time in decades and that is what
has everyone in Logan excited. You are the only person who seems to feel BSU
and Fresno are "head over heels" better than USU. Did you read the
total votes cast? A narrow margin above USU.
Being picked second seems about right. I don't personally believe Boise
will be any better than last year, but they have been by far the most consistent
team in the conference year in and year out. As such, it makes sense to pick
them for first in the division until someone topples them.I love our
chances though if Keeton can stay healthy. Heck, Garretson will be improved if
catastrophe strikes again... and I still like our chances if that happens. Go Ags!! Win the Mountain West!
@tinplaterThere are plenty of explanations for why I comment. None
of which you'd understand. But I assure you I'm not a fan.
@Stang0...not a fan? If you say so it must be true. I'm feeling really
good about this whole situation.
@tinplaterLet's be clear. I'm not a fan of USU. SUU and
other real football team's and conferences yes but USU no.
The excitement for Aggie football has been great. Lets keep the momentum going.
Keep being competitive in the MWC. This is what be pay to see. Contrary to what
many believe you can be a fan of football and a fan of a football team without
playing in a BCS conference. In the end it is all about entertainment and I have
gotten my money worth and more with Aggie football.
