After winning two straight conference championships, and going 16-2 in the conference, I figured that people here would be able to acknowledge that San Diego State is the premier program in this conference. However, some people refuse to acknowledge that fact, point to the Mountain Division, say we have not won a big game etc. Well, our record against the "SEC Mountain" is just as good as it is against the "West," we now have three straight wins against Pac 12 opponents, and are truly the only program that is still on the rise. The strange thing is, we are very very young, and our best days are in front of us.

I really like this conference. It needs to get better. We have raised the bar, and you all need to follow suit. But for now, I think you all need to kneel and kiss the ring. Enjoy your Sunday. 

West is on the line this Saturday. Show your dominance, big guy.

The only way SDSU can win the division is Fresno has to lose out and Nevada has to lose to either SJSU or UNLV.  If Fresno loses to SDSU & SJSU and Nevada wins out, we win the West.

But I thought San Diego State raised the bar tho? We’re just competing for second best.

What happens if SDSU wins and there is a three way tie? H2H is out. What's the next tiebreaker?

Here’s how I understand it. 

If Fresno wins Saturday they win the west

If Fresno loses Saturday but beats SJSU the next week and there’s a 3 way tie they still win as Nevada & Fresno will have better division records than SDSU (5-1 vs 4-2) then it reverts to the H2H matchup and Fresno wins. 

If Fresno loses out and Nevada wins out, we win the west.  

If Fresno loses to SDSU and Nevada loses to either SJSU or UNLV and SDSU beats Hawaii, they win the west. I think this is the only scenario where SDSU can win the west.

So, it'd take a miracle for Fresno to not win the Division. Got it. That's good. Fresno should be back in the top-25 if they beat SDSU. I don't think the MW has ever had two top-25 teams face each other in the CG.

Pretty much.  Still kicking myself we couldn’t finish the game against Boise as we would have a legit shot at winning the west if SDSU beat Fresno.

Well, ya know, sometimes the better team wins. If you can't win at home, gifted over 100 yards in penalties, and four TOs, do you really deserve it?

I’m not disagreeing with that. Just one of those games where we had the chance to win but didn’t get over that hump.

Alan is one weird dude. But he's not a weird dude who can unlock locked threads. He needed help from a possibly even weirder dude.

If you asked for a thread to be unlocked I would likely unlock it for you too.

I know you would. IDK if anything I contribute could elevate the level of discussion like this thread will, though...

Maybe if Alan gets enough attention from SUDS ppl, it will encourage him to stalk and sock their board like he does ours?

Yeah, but you have to be excited with the 2nd year progress under Norvell. Tedford caliber bounce backs are incredibly rare.

I’m actually very excited.  Norvell has the team heading in the right direction.  You could see that last year in the second half of the season and that’s carried over to this year.  We will probably take a step back next year as we are replacing a QB but I have faith in Norvell and his ability to find the right guy for the team.
