    OT: Babies!

    Raised two, boy and girl. Best decision my wife and I ever made together. Sometimes it was tough, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Being a parent ain't for sissies.

    San Jose State 2019 Commits

    Academics is not the issue, as he was offered by Air Force at some point in the past year or so. Smith was prepared to sign with a school on NSD, Wednesday. But, after SJSU contacted him on the preceding Monday with an offer, he decided to delay signing until Thursday in order to look into SJSU more. What it actually boiled down to was SJSU having one of the top aviation programs in the country, and that was what Smith wanted to major in all along. It's the first time I'm aware that a football player signed with SJSU because of the aviation program. I don't think he's going to come in and be the starter and unseat Tyler Nevens. He, more likely, will fill the role previously held by Thai Cottrell, who played a combination of slot receiver and running back.
  3. Not receiving death threats from their own fan base makes life easier for SJSU kickers than, say, Boise State.
  4. San Jose State's new punter is graduate transfer Alex Galland from Yale. He turned down offers from Boston College and UCLA to come to SJSU. Two new offensive linemen may become starters for the Spartans: Quinn Oseland, a graduate transfer from the University of Minnesota and Scott Breslin from Ventura College. Cornerback Chad Earle, from East Los Angeles College is expected to replace NFL bound Dakari Monroe's spot. The new placekicker will be Chris Wood from Glendale College.

    RIP Tallgrass

    Yoda is still with us. He lives up in the Seattle area. His battles with Tallgrass and Zoombag were epic.

    MWC Football Assistant Coach losses

    San Jose State lost LB Coach Bojay Filimoeatu to Utah State (his alma mater), and he was replaced by former UCLA assistant Scott White, who coached linebackers for the Bruins and was named 2016 PAC-12 recruiter of the year by 247Sports.

    Spartan Athletics are Officially Folding.

    You’re still trolling the SJSU message board for material? LOL

    RIP Tallgrass

    Remember him well in the old WAC 16 days, and shortly thereafter. He loved to battle on-line with his conference mates.

    Spartans Loss, Wolf Packs Gain

    After the 2009 season, when SJSU Head Coach Dick Tomey stepped down, one of the persons that interviewed for the job was current Stanford Head Coach David Shaw, who was then an assistant at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh. Shaw's wife was actually posting on the SJSU message board and lobbying for her husband. Ultimately, it came down to Shaw and Mike MacIntyre. I think SJSU made the right choice in MacIntyre. It's too bad Harbaugh left Stanford in 2011, which allowed Shaw to be promoted in his spot. Had Harbaugh stayed a little longer, Shaw might have still been his assistant in 2012 when MacIntyre left for Colorado. SJSU might have hired Shaw instead of Ron Caragher in 2012. As it was, Caragher beat out Jon Defilippo in 2012 to replace MacIntyre. Filippo was a former SJSU assistant, and is currently the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is expected to eventually become an NFL head coach.
  13. No. A coworker scored a late ticket today. Who’s bragging? Don’t dodge the question.
