Imagine you're in St. George, Utah playing football and your task is to tackle Corey Dillon every day?

It was back then that I learned Kansas and Mississippi were JC hotbeds.....for whatever reason.  (football specifically)

I've always wondered that.  I think Arizona to some extent as well.

How about being the 5'11" 230 lbs JUCO DE who just had to get pancaked by Larry Allen over and over for 3 hours?

I don't think they've ever had a player better than Corey Dillon, even though they have since expanded into a 4 year college, and worked their way up the ranks to FCS.

Being a pulling guard is a blast when they don't know what play you're calling.
When the HC is pissed and you do it 7 times in a row, being a pulling guard sucks.
.
My granny couldn't figure out why I didn't walk on at Florida as a 5'9", 240 lb left tackle.  I wonder if she didn't want one less grandson?

Southern Utah?

They have a little rivalry with Northern Arizona in Flagstaff.  They should both play some school in NE Nevada and call it the Isolation Playoff.

Southern Utah and Dixie State are two different schools.

Wow, I'm surprised there's enough poeple there to even staff 2 schools.

Southern Utah has been D1 for a while in basketball.  I think MSU played them a few years ago.  Big Sky?

I believe Dixie State just jumped to D1 in basketball this year

Most of my time spent in southern Utah is on the eastern half.  Monument Valley, Mesa Verde?, etc.  Basically the background of every western, ever.

The western half of Southern Utah is quite a bit more populous.

Yes that is all correct. Both will be in the Wac going forward.

Played first game tonight against my son.  He got bored at halftime, but 03 MSU was up 17-0 on 03 OSU.

Granted I scored on a 60 yard Woah Nellie play, and he got frustrated and went for it on 4th and 6 at his own 16 to set up my other TD.  But OSU offense couldn't do squat.  They only crossed midfield twice, once thanks to a 30 yard completion on 3rd and 12

I hope you made him cry
