  1. Someone call the National Guard

    Stand by your man until the end. Reminds me a lot of someone else on this board. Sometimes in life you are right, sometimes you are wrong. The gamble on a man that had exhibited such low character smelled of desperation. Sorry, I just called it out for what it was. I don't envy the task of a complete rebuild coupled with the loss of donors and fans. It will be a rough 5 - 7 years.
  2. Someone call the National Guard

    I remember telling them how dumb this hire was. Most CSU fans thought I was just being a prick. Good times. Good times.

    A couple things that can not be denied. 1. Utah State is benefitting from Byu's independence. 2. Utah State needs to out recruit Byu to succeed in the MW. 3. The two athletic programs appear to be heading in opposite directions. This benefits the aggies. This is not a Byu thing We are talking aggies here But you can continue to join in

    Saying that you competed with Boise while you were both in the WAC is a flawed argument. As you move up in conference affiliation you must improve. Some schools have and some schools have not. Yes you were capable of competing in the WAC. But are you set up to compete here. Different animal all together.

    No. you were invited out of necessity. Basketball was not the reason. No. Nobody would consider USU as a historically good basketball program. You have to make some tournament noise for that. Yes/No. Although you want to believe your situation is similar to Reno, I would say it is not. Your location and religious beliefs will keep a lot of good athletes from even considering the University. That is difficult to overcome ( as your finding out now in the MW ). Byu is a better example of your situation. You will need to continue to replace Byu as a destination for "your" type of kid. This is already happening and in a few more years you will be competitive here.
  6. A starting five of all walk-ons versus SJSU

    This is what I'm interested in. Who is the walk on starting 5? Then we can set a proper line
  7. A starting five of all walk-ons versus SJSU

    Come on. Now your getting silly.
  8. A starting five of all walk-ons versus SJSU

    Who are the five you are referring to? Tough to make the line with out that.
  9. Tim Duryea - hot seat?

    I am. The best thing that happened to Utah State was Byu going indy. Your athletic programs are moving in opposite trajectories now.

    I think most fans say that. Crap coach But when You look at your roster you likely see crap talent as well. It takes a lot of infrastructure money and time to start landing quality kids. To compete in the WAC for a title you can find lots of kids that might of slipped through the cracks of other higher programs. To compete in the MW you will find less of these kids that are good enough to actually compete at the top of this conference. To compete in the PAC even less and so on. Finding the over looked hard nosed kid ( or religiously determined kid ) will only take a program so far. Eventually you have to go out and win some recruiting battles against The PAC and top MW programs. My gut feeling is that your recruiting hasn't caught up yet. The difficult thing is that it is not as simple as saying crap coach.

    Facilities, budget, coaching and athletes all need to be on par to compete year in and year out. The standard for all of these is higher in the MW. I think you will struggle recruiting the type of athlete needed and budget wise. I am guessing those are your biggest obstacles right now? Is that correct?
  12. Tim Duryea - hot seat?

    Yeah it's a lot tougher up here. Just enjoy the ride. Your past successes will be almost impossible to repeat. Look at San Jose State for example.
  13. Tim Duryea - hot seat?

    If you were back in the WAC right now you would be competing for a title. Looks pretty cut and dry.
  14. Tim Duryea - hot seat?

    Yeah that is usually thought to be the other way around. Budget and scholarship numbers would say it is tougher in football.

    Can't imagine another AD at a D1 school wanting to take the risk associated with him. They are not as desperate for a winner as the Rams were. That type of approach always blows up in your face. Believe me, having an average program is a whole lot better than a complete rebuild. Not to mention the damage that is done to the universities reputation.
