Rock On: No guts, no Mountain West glory (6 items)
GORE-ING FOR IT
Utah State’s Matt Wells took coach-speak to the next level on Saturday after the Aggie clinched a Mountain West Conference playoff spot.
He said running back Joey DeMartino, is “in there on guts and determination.
Added Wells, “The kid just oozes guts, and sometimes it’s not pretty and sometimes it’s not highlight reel, but you look up and the kid’s got another hundred yards and he’s pounding it, down after down.”
Coach-speak notwithstanding, Rock On has to agree: oozing guts definitely isn’t pretty.

The meal includes two quarter-pounders with cheese, two medium orders of fries and a 20-piece bucket of chicken nuggets — nearly 3,000 calories.
Rock On sources say they still plan to have their cashiers say, “You want to Supersize that?”
