    2 MW teams in the top 25. Hopefully USU and FSU keep winning to make the conference look good. The pendulum is starting to swing back towards the MWC (from the AAC) in the national conversation.

    The defense is miserable. Yes they are extremely banged up, but so are most other teams as well this time of the year. It's no excuse. It has to be better. Right now it stinks.

    It sucks, all offseason we talked about how Rypien was going to need to take the next step as a passer and the receivers are going to have to step up....we thought if those two things happened we were going to be in for a special season

    Instead we already have two losses with two blowouts coming up soon because our offensive line can't block and the defense has imploded

    I agree, this season would have set up really well for us had we lived up to our potential.

    If they keep winning they both could be in the top 15 heading into conference championship week, I'd like to see that

    It's ironic, isn't it? I really thought the issue would be Rypien and his WRs preventing us from having something really special and for the most part they have been nails this season, especially the WRs who have basically been down the guy who was expected to be the biggest stud of them all in Octavius Evans.

    It is really great to see how much all our receivers have stepped up this year, this is also the first time in the Harsin era where we spread it around instead of just looking at one receiver most of the time. I wonder if Evans can just redshirt at this point. He definitely hasn't been around 4 games and has only caught 2 passes. Modster and Richardson are both seniors so we will need replacements.

    Harsin is a idiot, but he got lucky against BYU, clock management was terrible.

    This team just isn't very good, unfortunately. I've been waiting for that early season mojo to return, but for whatever reason, it's just not happening.

    Big showdown on Friday night. Fresno is probably the better team and probably the best team they've seen all year.

    Fresno is going to dominate us.

    It's at home at least :noidea:

    Yep, it's not looking good, they're going to run us off our home field

    First time we’ve been home dogs in a conference game in over 20 years. And the line is only 3. They are going to absolutely kick our ass.

    In a weird way, this feels like one of those games that they'll show up for and actually win.

    It's the October game in Logan, or the early November game in Boise against UNM or Air Force that they normally lose in conference.

    Or maybe I'm just trying to talk myself into a win. Who knows. Fresno looks really good, but they also haven't played anyone.

    Our defense is mediocre. They will score, probably a lot. And on the other side of the ball our offense isn't going to be able to do a damn thing against that defense. I expect to see an embarrassing result. Hope I'm wrong. It certainly wouldn't be the first time.

    Fresno State has never won on the blue....so there's that I guess

    They're pretty much better than us at every facet of the game, I suspect we're going to lose pretty badly

    It will even be worse in a few weeks though when Utah State comes to town, that's gonna hurt

    Really good win on Friday. That was a big boost of energy for the team and the fanbase - the next two games have some real meaning now.

    Whoever ends up starting at QB next year has huge shoes to fill - Rypien has been incredible this year.

    Chase Cord will probably be the starter and I'm actually excited for him. He's shown well in his limited action so far, he's also very mobile and I think he actually better suits the offense the coaching staff wants to run.

    You think he will be back before the season starts? I hope you're right, but that seems like a fast recovery period.

    Oh crap, I completely forgot he tore his ACL :L

    We're already living our worst case scenario for this year
