  1. I know for sure USU didn't put up those kinds of numbers. Just tryin' to remember who all we beat in those sports this year...
  2. You're welcome. https://www.usu.edu/today/story/utah-state-university-antiviral-researchers-at-work-on-coronavirus-with-nih-support
  3. I took my checkride for my ppl at 38 hours. (Yes, you can do that, just make sure the checkride itself takes over two hours. Home for dinner.) The reason I was able to get the ppl in 40 hours wasn't because I'm any more proficient than anyone else, because I'm not. The reason, and with it, my advice to you, is to make sure you can get an instructor who doesn't instruct for a living. Mine was a retired police captain whose wife was an anesthesiologist. He loved to fly and teach and the first time I met him he told me he's not going to sit there and read the textbook to me. Flight instructors at most fbo's have a built in conflict. The more hours it takes for you to get to that checkride, the more they make. Not saying they're dishonest, just that people respond to incentive, sometimes subconsciously. Take the discovery flight like the other guys said and go from there.
  4. I guess in order to keep the population of USU fans on here afloat, I'll start posting again. It's been three years, and I've lurked almost every day, but stopped posting due to what I felt was a conflict of interest. Anyhow, Jackmormon was an active participant in USU alumni events and fundraisers, which my wife runs. Guys like Jack get flowers sent to their funerals when they die from the alumni association. I'll make sure the sentiments here are shared in the form of an arrangement of some kind. Thank you all for pausing to remember a fellow traveler.
  5. But they'll throw in a free laptop for your 150K bachelor's degree.
  6. Freakin' geologists. Yes, there are different types. Yes, the vast majority of them fulfill the same function: for me to stand on and wisely build my house upon. (If you are a Wyoming fan, they can be flung at BYU in the absence of piss bombs.)
  7. Your post was very well written and got straight to the point. I particularly liked the "trying to fit a lot of grey into a black and white rendering of the law".

    I am querious as to your rabbit hole assignment. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to keep our female children safe on campus. Hope you can shed some light.

      Blow them up if need be. You'll have a lot of people who will respect the true telling of the facts. I can understand  the "star worship" . But that does not give athletes the excuse to abuse those "who look up to/admire". And the quiet game needs to be exposed and those that do it need to be educated that keeping quiet about abuse is never a good thing. Not only to protect yourself but to protect others that come after you. 

      I wish you the best. 

      Please update me on your findings if you choose. I am in your camp on this.

      Will do, thanks!

  8. Also, I'm seeing Hawaii's national championship the next year was, you guessed it, AIAW. What's it gonna be? Does it count or not. Since we're using the same standard, I say yes.
  9. That's interesting, I guess those are fake trophies in the trophy case. I'm sure the advent of title 9 threw everything under the NCAA umbrella. At any rate, it shows just how much volleyball moves the needle.
  10. Everything in bold above, and yet you have us in the bottom 3. So much for your list. 1 NC in volleyball, runner up the following year 1 NC in softball, not just an 'entry' (edit: 2 national championships in softball) Our basketball program's historical record and NCAA appearances shits upon yours. Remember when we were in the same league? How many times did you guys win the title? I'm not saying we're world-beaters, but you should do some research before you post. #trolled
  11. We're not even close to bottom three. We're top five in academics by most rankings, we're in the mix every year in both revenue sports, our attendance since joining the MWC is over 90% of venue size, we have invested more in facilities than anyone but CSU since joining the league (avoiding the astronomical debt they've burdened themselves with), and on and on. After a down year our spring game attendance was top three in football, and our bball team still enjoys one of the best fanbases and gameday environments in the entire nation and was fourth in attendance. That list is pure slop.
  12. Not a liar, I just inferred that it was Chambers, not Mcgill. I was too lazy to look it up. Nevertheless, he still owns the most letters ever won by a male athlete at Utah, is in the state basketball hall of fame, and was offered both the head football and basketball coaching jobs at BYU. Whether his scoring record was broken by Tom Chambers or Billy Mcgill or not, (which I was told, I never researched it) it was still the scoring record for many years. Unfortunately, with the passage of time, changing rules, and due to lack of record keeping, it's very difficult to find stats from way back then online. I've seen the total points scored, and I've looked at the W-L percentage and it matches Also as a little ace in the hole (which I saved just for you) my great grandfather's record came when the rules were a little different: After each made basket, the ball was taken to midcourt and re-tipped. You didn't just inbound it, and you weren't assured a possession. His legacy of fair play is why I get so hot under the collar when I see your current coach break rules and traditions and tarnish an image my family worked and still work hard to create. http://www.deseretnews.com/article/791754/Old-greats-gone-but-not-forgotten.html?pg=all
  13. For all of your talk about an education received from Utah State, you sure do a shitty job with your punctuation and sentence structure.
  14. I know you guys will hate me and my school (USU) for this, but this thread had a shelf life. It was doomed from the beginning. Coaches have a shelf-life, hate for USU does not. This thread is dead. Long live the "Why is Utah State so hated on here" thread. Amen.
