So much for progress

Much was made by USU coaches and fans about the progress shown by the team against BYU. The Aggies, though behind 24-0 after one quarter, fought hard for the next three quarters and never quit.

Well, fast forward a week and the Aggies laid a stinker in San Jose.

So much for momentum. So much for improved effort. And so much for first place in the Western Athletic Conference.

The 30-7 beating by the Bay leaves Utah State with a 1-5 record and will certainly amplify the calls for Brent Guy’s dismissal.

The effort shown against BYU gave way to exactly two first downs in the first half against the Spartans and a not-impressive-at-all 0-for-10 passing effort from quarterbacks Diondre Borel and Sean Setzer.

It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that Utah State accumulated more than 100 yards of total offense.

Simply put, Utah State did not to show up offensively for this game.

Judging from the 401 yards San Jose State gained, it might be safe to say the defense didn’t show up, either.

So, you may be asking, where does this leave the Aggies?

The answer is one you probably already knew — right back to near the bottom of the WAC.

The next question you might have doesn’t need to be asked. The answer, though, is Friday night at 7 p.m. in the Spectrum.
