In his assessment of Thursday's practice session, Utah State coach Matt Wells said the offense got the better of the defense. It's a refrain we probably should get accustomed to hearing in the coming weeks.
With Chuckie Keeton back looking good as ever, the offense seems to be ahead of where it was a year ago at this time.
An encouraging sign Thursday was the play of the offensive line, which Wells thought got the better of the defense. While his words might have been a little coach psychology at work to keep the defense on its toes, fans still have to like the idea that the line, thought to be one of the areas that needs the most work in camp, is coming together earlier than expected.<
