Attendance Truth: Rashaad Penny runs wild edition

Fog: Mother Nature’s tarp.

With the Chargers gone and Mission Valley up for grabs, it seems everybody is suddenly *keenly* interested in San Diego State’s football attendance. Trouble is, that number has always been kind of tough to pin down. The official count is a tickets-distributed figure, and that often doesn’t jibe with the butts in seats. THE HATERZ on the other hand have it on good authority that literally zero people have ever attended an Aztecs football game. We’re here to find the truth, people.

Game Recap: On a grim day, Rashaad Penny reminds us how good we have it

Same.

We’ll get the negativity out of the way first.

San Diego State will not three-peat as Mountain West Conference Champions. That was solidified earlier Saturday afternoon when Fresno State edged past a Josh Allen-less Wyoming to win the West Division. Thanks for nothing, Josh Allen. What did we ever do to you?

Ah yes, that’s right.

Elsewhere Saturday, an unexpected win by Kansas State may have muddied SDSU’s path to a Cactus Bowl bid, and thus its larger hopes of playing a name opponent at a non-garbage destination. It was a disheartening day.

Until it wasn’t.

Hey Reb! Your new logo is trash

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas updated their “spirit mark” i.e. athletics logo. It’s bad! UNLV tweeted it out yesterday and were met with immediate dogpiling and cyberbullying.

hahahahha WHAT

The best wins of the Rocky Long Era; an Adam Dingwell appreciation tournament (FINALS)

Adam Dingwell started just seven games at quarterback in his San Diego State career. That’s fewer starts than Ryan Katz, Jack Hawley or Riley Smithson, a quarterback I literally just made up. Yet I think it says something that the Texan played a starring role in the two wins you the fans have determined to be the best of the Rocky Long Era.

So let’s all note that, while his career did not exactly have a storybook finish, Dingwell had himself some moments, he did. He beat Boise State on their stupid Mountain Berry Blast flavored field – a win you determined to be bigger than the Cal win. He also engineered an epic comeback/interview against Nevada (seriously watch the clip) – a win you determined to be better than both MWC Championship Games.

I guess you could say he … ding quite well for himself?

Oh, god I’m so sorry.

Check the results of the previous two rounds here and here. The final round starts … now.

Aztecs trample the Biggest Little Run Defense in the World (UPDATED with ranking)

store

SDSU’s football season is shaping up to be a slightly improved facsimile of 2015. We’ve made it through the “losing to South Alabama” phase of the season. We passed through the “beating MWC teams convincingly but not overwhelmingly” stage. And now, here we are in the “housing fools by 30-plus” portion of the schedule.

This is the best part IMO.

Game Preview: Aztecs vs. University of Nevada-Reno Wolf Pack

What: San Diego State Aztecs at Nevada Wolf Pack
When: Saturday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m.
TV: CBS Sports Network
Line: Aztecs -23.5

I shot a man in Reno just to w-*fart noise*
A loss this week will have ramifications we have to live with going forward; some much more than others. Without preparation, motivation, enthusiasm, everything could be lost. You start out with pipe dreams of going undefeated, maybe making a big bowl game. Then you lose to South Alabama. You collect yourself, remember there’s still a Mountain West championship to win. And, hey, the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl isn’t THAT bad. It’s definitely not as exciting as going undefeated and playing in a major bowl … but it’s something. Stay focused, stay motivated, and worry about doing better next time; there’s still a job to finish. The alternatives could be much worse.

What were we talking about again?

Kindly eat shit, (Opponent)

Aztecs football season starts this week, and it’s time to start working ourselves up! It’s easier when you hate your opponent, right? We here at Kabeer Thirty love nothing more than to give a quick (figurative) kick to the junk followed by a tearful sprint in the opposite direction, but there’s a lot of hatred in this world. How about we try a different approach this season? Let’s systematically kill them with kindness!

A benevolent breakdown of SDSU’s 2016 foes:
