  1. It's just a colloquialism... He's been being treated like he could he was some sort of prima donna since he was 7. You think he's gonna start thinking he needs to pay for stuff now?
  2. We encountered Emery quite a bit for several years as part of the AAU basketball circuit in and around the state of Utah and Las Vegas when he was high school age and younger. He's one of the more whiny and entitled young athletes I have ever seen. Not surprised at all that he would be milking the system for anything he can get his hands on. Sad that he is already divorced. Not too shocking, but it is sad just the same. Dude could curse a blue streaek better than most sailors and he would do it quite often Once an entitled brat, always an entitled brat.
  3. whoa Oregon State pulls the trigger

    I don't believe that I would proclaim GA as an unbelievabe football coaching talent. However, given the right resources, I believe that he can do much better than we have been doing since he left. Dude has a good ability to motivate young men and to help their progression in becoming good people. At the end of the day, isn't that what we all claim that it is all about? And he knows how to win in the environment that exist Utah State. 1. He draws kids from places like Florida, California, and Texas that will fit with the environment in Utah 2. He may have a better coaching reputation and connections in the Poly community that any coach not named Kalani Sitake 3. He understands Utah High School Football and has countless connections and friends throughout Utah. 4. He understands Utah kids well and works well with these kid's desires to do things like serve an LDS church mission. He also utilizes these older kids well to bring stability, toughness, and leadership to the team. 5. Lastly, I think he understands the critical importance of balance and surrounding himself with talented coaches that can carry their load. I'm not saying he wants to jump back in, but I would support him if he does.
  4. Just for fun... GA becomes 2nd time HC at USU Wells canned and David Yost finally gets to be the OC with Mike Sanford SR. as Special Assistant/Advisor. KS steps down under heat from BYU He takes over at Utah State as DC. Maile and Shaver retained.
  5. "Nobody likes BYU"

    Utah State enjoys playing them in FB and BB. We have a lot of history and familarity with them. I really could not care less if they want to be in the MWC. At this point they are not and I doubt they would want to come back AND I really doubt very much that they could get the votes if they did want to come back. I think they are best as a traveling revival / circus with no bearing on actual conference politics or decisions. Let those that have a reasons that they want to play them arrange some games. Let those that have no interest avoid them altogether. Seems too good to be true. Everybody wins.
  6. How Many of The United States Have You Visited?

    I have been to all 50 except Alaska, Maine, and North Dakota. I can easily envision making it to Alaska and Maine in the next few years. I have no idea how/why I would end up in ND, ever. If it comes down to that, I will just get in the car and drive there to finish it out.
  7. MW Athletics Revenue Update

    I probably overestimated the # of view seats. It is more like 22-24K. But nobody is sitting there and the field seats are tarped off and the club and plaza seats rarely are more than half full. 70-22-8 = 40 40 X .5 = 38K? Nope. More like 20 - 25K Good luck!
  8. MW Athletics Revenue Update

    Never been to a USU vs. SUDS game at the Q. I have been to several CFB games at the Q and a few Charger games at the Q Put whatever lipstick you want on that pig, it is a very poor stadium design for a 30K crowd.
  9. MW Athletics Revenue Update

    Meh... SUDS kinda gets what they deserve. They play in a rented crumbling concrete abyss reported to hold 70K. The upper deck is 1.5 miles from the action, but her 30K seats are closed for Aztec games anyway The field seats are closer, but hard to see anything, due to crap viewing angles, so they tarp those off 8K too. The club and plaza seats might be a little better, but only 1/2 fulll. Still, Monty wants us to believe that they got 38K Doesn't add up.
  10. BSU does have some nice football facilities. Their stadium however is far from great from a fan's perspective of actually wanting to view the game. Sight lines and viewing angles for entire lower bowl are just bad. Don't buy a sideline ticket below row 20. You will basically have a nice view of the game through a wall of butts of 300 lb. linemen standing 100 feet away. Best seats, IMHO, are Upper Level first 10 rows, except they are so far from the action, you will end up watching the entire game through binoculars. For this reason, I would place the BSU Football facilities down near the middle of the pack. I think CSU's are clearly now the top football facilities of the conference.
  11. Sorry, I did not notice the line of P5 conferences that have wanted nothing to do with SUDS ever that are suddenly interested in a football program wiht no stadium, no plans for a stadium, and no money to build a stadium.
  12. Despite multiple delays and literal crumbling concrete, your stadium will be a rubble pile before SUDS will figure out what they are doing and get anything going, despite the massive population base of the SD metro area.. Based on the progress to date, my money is on the Aztecs playing a year or two in Estadia Caliente.just over over the border
  13. Those that live in delapidated crumbling houses that they rent really should not waste their time and anyone else's bragging about "their stadium" or knocking anyone else's until they at least have a plan, designs,, approved EIS, etc. If SUDS' stadium construction project was a track event, they would call it the 10,000 meter high hurdles. And you have not yet cleared the first hurdle. Put a cork in it until you have something...anything..even any sort of a concept in place. Right now, all you got is talk, not that that ever shut you up before.....
  14. BSU awarded 18 Phd out of 12 whopping Phd programs last year. BSU is not going to any P5 conference in the foreseeable future. More likely they try the indy route.
  15. bad tv year for BYU

    When you are playing 6 MWC teams in a season plus ECU and Umass, and 5 of those games are on the road, I honestly do not get the point of the indy schedule
