WAC Media Days: Utah State

Coach Gary Anderson has the podium, joined by Bojay Filimoeatu and Matt Austin:

  • USU will be on national TV this season 4 or 5 times this season.
  • Wisconsin is a highlite game for TV.
  • Conference is evenly matched.
  • All games will be highly contested.
  • Credits his players in raising expectations by media, coaches.
  • Happy to be respected.
  • Respect gets you no rings, bowl games.
  • Can go with 4 TEs on the field at any given time.
  • Have talent at WR.
  • Matt Austin is the leader on offense.
  • Kerwynn Williams needs some help at RB.
  • Nobody came out of spring ball as a solid backup option behind Williams at RB.
  • Feels great about QB siutation, has two that will play in Keeton and Adam Kennedy.
  • Want to run the ball with power, but want to consistently throw the ball.
  • Feels there was not enough balance on offense last fall.
  • Feels zero pressure to name a QB. Has no agenda about it. May name one, may not.
  • Scheduling BYU and Utah is a priority, but they want home and home, not 2 for 1 deals. Program is too established for 2for 1 deals with in-state rivals.
  • BYU, Utah not on schedule past 2015.
  • Have to find a way to play well for 4 quarters. Won't get off of the edge unless they can find consistency.
  • Defensive line will be a focus, as Al Wilson told us last night.
  • 16 seniors this season, and will be at 84 scholarships this season, so team will be young.
  • Depending on seniors to lead by example.
Wrap up for WAC Media Days coming up!
