The coach said during his Monday press conference he wants to make sure his team enjoys the wins they earn. Wells seemed to be addressing a few of the boo birds who showed their impatience when the Aggies were struggling to break free from Idaho State Saturday. Wells called it a "good win," although it may not have been as convincing as some wanted it to be."It's a hard sport and a long year," he...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Many probably left Romney Stadium wondering, “Is that all?” While the Aggies finally shook free of the Bengals to win comfortably, the victory wasn’t as convincing as most thought it would be.
