Cold-seat Rocky Long owes no apologies for dominating the Mountain West

On Saturday morning, still buzzing from the glory of the Aztecs’ victory over Fresno State, I sat and drank a beermosa from a vintage oil can. Not the vintage Oil Can, mind you, just one I found at the dump and hastily rinsed out with warm water. Totally sanitary.

It felt good, and it should have dammit. Fresno State is a bad school for bad people and they do not deserve to possess even the most contrived, rusted-ass piece of scrap metal.

Anyway, amid my exultation, I decided to do what any red-blooded sports fan would do: Troll the local sports columnist over a bad take he had more than a year ago. It’s the American way!

The local columnist’s response was appropriately snippy, considering I was being an ass by mocking his “Fire Rocky” take from early 2015. But the more I thought about the underlying point of his retort (other than the implied “FUCK YOU ANONYMOUS BLOGGER BOY” which, again, is fair), the more I kind of take issue with it.

Bye week Mountain West Roundup

Our lollipop guild of an athletic conference played more football games this week while the Aztecs chilled with a bye. How’d those knuckleheads do? Idle hands are the devil’s tools and the Mountain West is a dusty lobby in purgatory, so gosh darn it let’s take a fleeting glance at a some sporting results.

We ranked

In the wake of a solid win at Northern Illinois and Cal’s stunner over Texas, San Diego State is ranked No. 22 in the newest Associated Press poll. I do not have a joke to make about this, it’s just flippin’ cool.

The ranking assures that the program’s rank-less streak will not reach 21 years, which is a shame considering I was hoping to take the streak to RAGE OUT at True North on its birthday. As such, this is the Aztecs’ first time in the Top-25 since Nov. 7, 1995. That’s a long time!
