  1. Utah State vs CSU Game Thread & Stream

    Dammit. I'm not watching the game but I'm sure the officiating is terrible if Dave is on the court. Is Verne Harris out there too? I really hope Duryea gets canned this week.
  2. Utah State vs CSU Game Thread & Stream

    Do the Ags lay another egg? Duryea claiming Merrill and McEwen are hurt reeks of trying to save his job if we have an early round exit. Hopefully we don't chuck up 40+ threes again.
  3. Caleb Martin out indefinitely

    Lisfranc injuries are no joke. IIRC, one of the most athletic guys USU has had in my lifetime (Brady Jardine) had a Lisfranc fracture that grounded him his entire senior year and made it so he'd never play competitive basketball again. Hopefully Martin has a better result.
  4. What is your school's student newspaper?

    USU's is The Utah Statesman: http://usustatesman.com Seeing the name of Nevada's newspaper makes me wish it was Sagebrush since that's part of our fight song.
  5. Leon at it again. Trying to sell out UNLV

    I always find it interesting what incentives coaches have--thanks for sharing. Agreed on Rice understanding the importance of having a tough home court advantage. I looked up Tim Duryea's contract: looks like he gets $3k each time the Spectrum sells out for a school not named BYU/Utah. Unfortunately he's not likely to ever have one with as poor as his teams are.
  6. Leon at it again. Trying to sell out UNLV

    I don't care enough to look it up, but I'm guessing Leon has incentives in his contact tied to sellouts. Wading across a river for a couple grand is easy money, and as others have said, builds exposure for the program. I'd love to have a coach with a pulse on the sidelines.
  7. the inaugural Beehive classic ...

    I think they should either rotate it between the schools (which will never happen) or let a ton of students in free from each school (1-2k per school) to create a campus game atmosphere. Put the students behind the baskets and let them go nuts. Charge everyone else in the arena $20 and you'll have one hell of a fun night of basketball. It's incredible how poorly thought out year 1 was.
  8. As I recall, this was right after Big Blue ripped off the raggie mascot's mustache after a Nevada(?) fan gave him $20 to perform the deed. I wasn't there, but witnesses said it was funny as hell.
  9. How Many “Idiots” Can this Guy Get?

    Pointing out the similarities between these two is the type of contribution to humanity many of us can only aspire to. This board never disappoints. Well done!
  10. utah state at air force

    The defense sucked and the offense looked competent outside a lot of dropped balls. I miss having NFL caliber LBs.
  11. It was this or another kick SJSU out thread.

  13. Utah State at UNLV (Homecoming)

    You have to be joking.
  14. whoa Oregon State pulls the trigger

    I think that's right. Rumor is he either makes a bowl and gets a short extension or doesn't and gets canned.
  15. whoa Oregon State pulls the trigger

    Exactly. The guy has a history of health problems related to football stress, so awhile off may be beneficial. Most USU fans I know are done with Wells, but pooling enough money to get rid of him may be an issue. The rumor is if he doesn't make a bowl he's gone. Not sure how accurate that is.
