The new San Diego State football hype vid went live today. It’s a 30 second spot with a season ticket sell at the end, an event of minor significance to be sure. What may prove more indelible: this image of Christian Chapman dropping back to pass from the shorebreak at what looks like Scripps pier.
One city. One football team, future home field TBD. Get hype.
My Twitter follows tend of fall into two categories: political commentators (lord help me) and San Diego State Aztecs-related accounts. Lately – amazingly – it has been the latter group that has been the source of the most breathless panic and bed wetting. A sampling:
California State University (CSU) Chancellor Timothy P. White has appointed Sally Roush as interim president of San Diego State University (SDSU). Roush will begin in her position on July 1, 2017, and serve in that capacity until a new president, selected by the CSU Board of Trustees, arrives in early summer 2018.
The Golden State Warriors want me dead. They tried to kill me through mind-numblingly inept and boring basketball when I was teenager in the Bay Area in the 1990s. Fortunately, I managed to survive those bleak years of Donyell Marshall and Todd Fuller by developing a lifelong apathy toward the NBA.
Naturally, now that I’ve been shaken from my apathy by a San Diego State alumnus achieving superstar status, the Warriors are coming for my ass again.
Steve Fisher won 386 games as head coach at San Diego State University. That’s a lot of wins! So many, in fact, that it would be a fool’s errand to attempt to pick only 10 that stand out among the rest.
On the other hand, this is a blog on the internet. So, uh, I made a list.
Anyway, here are the 10 best victories of the Steve Fisher Era. Know that if you disagree with anything here it is because you are dumb and bad and don’t appreciate Steve Fisher at the same level I do.
