Saturday's WAC breakdown owned by USU

The rich are getting richer -- no, this isn't about the banksters among us -- but Coach Stew Morrill/Utah State as Tony Jones explains. Matt Sonnenberg provides commentary on the addition.


#20 in Matt Sonnenberg's countdown of all-time Aggies under Stew Morrill has been posted.


Andy Katz, in writing about conferences banning departing members from league tournaments:

"What would a WAC tournament look like without Utah State and San Jose State?
Not worth it. USU has been the benchmark program in the WAC since Morrill arrived. New Mexico State can't anchor the conference on its own. NMSU needs a rival, and Utah State has been that nemesis. San Jose State wouldn't be missed, but the Aggies' absence would have been a glaring omission in Las Vegas. Rebuilding Utah State will likely need the tournament to get a bid this season, but the WAC was in no position to be punitive. So the Aggies will have one final chance to represent the WAC before it joins SJSU and former WAC members Fresno State and Nevada in the Mountain West."
Did Katz actually employ the term rebuilding and USU in the same sentence? Yowza.
