of Aggie football is the real sign spring's here
By Haleigh Munson
April 29, 2009 | Two wonderful things happened last
weekend here in Cache Valley. For one, the weather was
absolutely amazing and felt so good to finally be able
to walk outside and not freeze or worry about snow!
Secondly, I was able to watch the Utah State spring
game on Saturday. Warm weather and football, it doesn't
get much better than that! Even though I am graduating
I'm still very excited about this upcoming football
season! We have a whole new coaching staff and new players!
Gary Anderson commented on the spring game saying,
"We made a lot of big plays. That is good on one side,
but bad on the other side of the football. Offensively
we executed and made some big plays. That is a very
big positive for us. The biggest concern coming out
of this is the first team defense gave up way too many
Anderson, who used to be the defensive coach at the
University of Utah, is now the head coach of Utah State
University. The Aggies will start their 2009 season
at a familiar turf for Anderson when they travel to
Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Utes Sept. 3, and
you can already feel the excitement the USU players
have for the game.
Sophomore linebacker, Alfred Kikau stated, "I'm
really excited to start the season! We have been working
so hard and Coach Anderson and his staff has done an
excellent job with our football program so far. Our
theme for this season is called 'respect the process.'
We might have a ways to go but Cache Valley will definitely
see a new and improved football team."
Another thing that is really exciting about the upcoming
season is that the game against Boise State will be
on ESPN2 on Nov. 2. This will be the first time ever
that Utah State has hosted an ESPN game. This is a very
big deal for the Aggies and the city of Logan. What
an exciting time! Make sure to wear your Aggie blue
and cheer loud, after all we have to make Utah State
The Aggies first home game of the 2009 season will
be on Sept. 26 at 6 p.m. as they take on Southern Utah.
