Utah State College Football Preview
The Aggies showed some guts to close out 2007 as they fought their way into back-to-back victories to avoid a winless campaign. With the return of 15 starters (nine on defense) the confidence has to be growing to some extent. It better defensively as this side of the ball is no stranger to giving up 50-plus points against better foes. This was the WAC's worst defense a year ago. The Aggies were equally leaky against both the run and pass. The offense is not so lucky in terms of experience. The annual search for a new QB continues to be the case. The candidates are Sean Setzer, who only threw one pass last year and Jase McCormick, who threw five interceptions in just 40 attempts. Their best player the last few years Kevin Robinson is no longer available from his receiver/return man spots. Outside of QB there is some depth at the skill positions however. The statistical numbers have been just terrible in every facet of the game, which now means fourth year head coach Brent Guy is on the chopping block. He is 5-19 in league play and his team has a very long way to go before they can even think of being competitive.
