Not sure if you follow football recruiting, but I follow it very closely. Utah State gets CFL level of talent (not even XFL lol), while teams like LSU, Bama, etc. get NFL talent for comparison.
Here's USt, LSU, and Bama's recruits signees for the current period (note the individual players national ranks). And below that are the schools ranking... Bama and LSU are ranked 2nd and 4th in the country in talent. Utah State is 117th. And sorry, Tua/Burrow don't automatically crush it when they have a horrible OL and bad skill position players (their WRs were in the 4.6 and 4.7s lol). Put either of those QBs on a team with a bad OL and they would look very diferent.
And that's not even factoring in that 9 out of 11 starters were brand new. And the only other returning starter didn't start the whole year in 2018 (injury sub).
