Here's some USU fans for you:
Here's some USU fans for you:
Would anyone in their right mind turn down... Probably at least a triple pay increase to stay in Logan where they can't even sell out their games despite having the best season in literally decades? I know many fans may have their butts chapped over this but very very VERY few people would stay in a dead end job for a sliver of the pay.
I guess some people are pissed that he stated that he was staying. Then again, what else is he supposed to say when he's being asked non-stop about his job? If he supposed to state the truth? "I'm actually entertaining many other offers because as you know, Utah St. is a start up job to where most coaches really want to go?"
I was exactly referring to the fan support given to the Football team.
They couldn't even sell out some of their games this season. You'd think that fan support would be at an all-time high and the stadium would be overflowing due to such a turnaround. Gary Anderson even mentioned his disappointment after one game with the stadium only showing up with... What... 18k? 20k fans? He mentioned how he had invited a bunch of new recruits and that it makes things hard to recruit when fans don't show up.
Yet... Fans were expecting this guy to stay? How dare some of you criticize the guy. I criticize you. Did you folks do everything possible to support his program and keep him here? Judging by your (lack) of sellouts, I think not. And don't tell me it's because you folks have "sooooooo" many other things to do in Logan to keep you busy on Saturdays.
I think I'm gonna go barf now
I don't know if I should be happy for Gary or pissed to no end that he blew a bunch of smoke up every ones ass about how much he enjoyed Logan and wanted to be there blah blah... Typical college ********. Grass is always greener on the freakin other side for the coaches. Screw the players and fans that all buy in to your bs...
Guess this is the time for me to become a BSU fan. Since I live here I may as well support them... At least I know Chris doesn't talk out his ass...
Congrats to Coach Anderson. Hopefully this doesn't eviscerate the Aggies' program.
No doubt...... even at low wage jobs the interviewer/company steers you into committing to be a company man for life. "How long do you plan to be at Walmart?" ......"I can't see myself ever leaving. Great company. Terrific company. You guys just throw me that extra $.25/hr raise "reward" at the end of the year you were talking about earlier if I'm on my best behavior and I just don't see how I could ever leave. I am lifer. " And then you quit two days later. You have toe that line anytime you're working for somebody else....no matter the amount of money at stake. It's just magnified when you're a college football coach with media always at hand.

I'm not bitter about him leaving, I just think he overdid the fanfare over the last couple of months, doing things like crying with the players after the bowl game telling them how glad he was to be at USU and how he wasn't leaving, putting out a press release stating that he " would be coaching in 2013, for sure", he could have merely stayed quiet, or said that no schools that had contacted him thus far were of any interest.
It's possible Andersen had no intention of leaving but was surprised to get the offer from Wisconsin. Really hard to see how anybody could turn that down in his situation.
