The first thing you notice about Utah State head coach Gary Andersen is his confidence, you know, the borderline swagger that he exhibited.
The Aggies are headed to the Mountain West in 2013. Andersen believes his 2013 team could possibly be the best of his tenure, and for good reason.
Chuckie Keeton will be a junior. Tavaris McMillian will be a junior. Joe Hill will be around, as will Nevin Lawson and a host of guys who will play major roles this season.
Without Boise State, without San Diego State, the Aggies could have the ability to come in a compete right away. Not just compete, but to potentially compete for a title.
"I definitely feel like we can step in and compete at a high level," Andersen said. "Whether it's the WAC next year, or the Mountain West, I think this will be very similar in the people we have played against in the past. We are going to have to step up in any arena."
The Aggies are expected to compete for the WAC title this upcoming season, behind an offense with explosive potential and a young defense led by Lawson and McMillian.
