100 years of history: USU and the US Military By Shelby Black STUDENT LIFE SENIOR WRITER
A hundred years ago, Utah State University
was filled with soldiers training on the Quad and Old Main. Other buildings on campus were being used as barracks.
The university’s history is intertwined with
the United States military. This history will now be honored with a new war memori-
al being dedicated in front of the Military Science building.
USU has many sculptures and art pieces
around campus. Avard Fairbanks is the sculptor who created the busts of Washington
and Lincoln that are currently in front of
Old Main. Fairbank’s family contacted the
university to see if they would be interested in a donation of a model scale of Fairbank’s
“Doughboy of The West.” The answer was a resounding yes.
Katie Lee-Koven, executive director and chief
curator of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, has helped facilitate the project. The
statue will fall under the museum’s care and they will help maintain it for years to come.
Lee-Koven has been planning, working with
committees and writing grants to make sure
that the memorial would be ready in time for the centennial celebration of Armistice day.
“This has been such a rewarding process. The
fact that it has all come together is amazing. It has been very humbling to see the response,” Lee-Koven said.
Outside the Military Science building, the
ongoing construction has been in preparation for the installation of the memorial.
Jim Huppi, a university landscape architect,
and his landscape team redid the irrigation
around the memorial and cleaned up the area.
Huppi was excited to help design and install the memorial to campus.
“Artwork always enhances our campus. This
particular sculpture is a working model of a
sculpture that you can find large numbers of in cemeteries around the nation. Our memorial is a modified concrete pyramid, with the sculpture and plaques around it,” Huppi said.
Along with the model-sized statue, bronze
plaques will be placed on the memorial. These bronze plaques were once displayed in Old
Main before the fire in the 1980s. They have
been in storage since that day, but now will be visible to the public once again.
Two of the bronze plaques have been dedicat-
ed by classes in memory of fallen soldiers from WWI and WWII. The third plaque is dedicated to the USS Maine that was destroyed in 1888. Ross Peterson, a retired university history
professor, is a expert on Utah State University’s
war involvement and history. Peterson has been involved in helping with the history behind
the memorial. According to Peterson the term “Doughboy” comes from the way soldiers looked in WWI.

“Doughboy was a nickname for infantry
guys in trenches. It was in part because of the helmets and gas masks. All their equipment
made them look a lot heavier than they were,” Peterson said.
He further explained the significance of Utah

Peterson explained that the University’s influence continued after the war too.

USU professors explain midterm election results ries in the state legislature to Proposition 2 –– the legalizing of medical marijuana –– being on the ballot.
“The marijuana proposition is a large part of it,” he said.
While The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints voiced
opposition to Proposition 2, all three professors on the panel said the support for Prop 2 represents changing attitudes
toward marijuana across the nation, as well as a more moderate, secular-leaning future for Utah.
Steve Sharp, a political science instructor specializing in for-
eign policy, said despite the church’s influence, some voters
who wanted marijuana reform felt like the legislature would never achieve it; though they may have disagreed with the logistics of Prop 2, they supported it nonetheless.
Sharp used an example from one of his classes in which he
polled the students.
“Someone suggested the reason he voted for it even though
he wasn’t in favor of it was that he didn’t trust the legislature,” Sharp said. PHOTO BY Jason Rimando The hosts (from left to right) are: Damon Cann, Michael Lyons and Steve Sharp.

Despite losing in several key gubernatorial and Senate races,
three Utah State University professors on a Wednesday night
panel say Democrats performed as well as they possibly could
“When you look at some historical context, the Democratic
party actually fared pretty well in this election,” said Michael
“The Democrats seemed to be underperforming in a num-
ber of states that were projected to be very close, and they
appeared to be states that Trump had visited,” Lyons said. “This suggests to me that Trump’s campaign rallies in these states really helped the Republican party enormously.”

Lyons attributed the Democratic losses in states like Indiana
and Texas to President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies in
“The distance-yourself-from-Trump strategy wasn’t the win-
with Republicans in Alabama, he plays well with Republicans around the South, he plays well with Republicans in West Virginia and Republicans in Indiana.”
The professors also spoke about Trump’s unconventional
behaviors and whether voters can expect to see erratic tweeting and lashing out on television as the new norm.
“Trumpism is about a blustery. Say whatever’s on your
mind despite the fact that it’s often inappropriate. For some reason, that is remarkably popular with segments of the
Republican Party,” said Cann, who is a Republican himself.
“The Republicans trying to appeal to white, lower-middle-class
males but also white women who don’t have a college degree, I think that trend probably continues in the Republican Party.”
However, Cann added, “I think much of Trumpism is about a Trump, not necessarily about the issues,” and voters can expect t to see some of the rhetoric around immigration and racial s issues die down.
As for local issues, Cann attributes the four Democratic victo-

“Watching Darwin run, it’s like every single
time he gets the ball I’m like ‘I can’t believe it.’
Same with every time Jordan throws a ball, it’s
phenomenal,” said USU senior safety Jontrell Rocquemore.
The 804 yards by Utah State marked just the
third time this season an FBS team surpassed
the 800-yard milestone. The Aggies are also the
only team in the nation with two or more 700+ yard performances.
“I’m always amazed,” Love said of this season’s
offensive performances. “It’s really just a fun
thing to be a part of. To be able to do stuff like
that every week, I mean, it’s really just fun. It’s a
testament to what we do every week (in practice).”
Following last night’s Boise State victory over
Fresno State, the Aggies now control their own
destiny to a potential conference championship
and an opportunity to host the MWC title game
on Dec. 1. USU went 6-0 at home this season,
outscoring opponents by a combined total of 357-128.
“It means so much to us,” Rocquemore said of
the team’s unblemished home record. “We take a
lot of pride playing at home. To go 6-0 is really a great completion of what we wanted to do.”
The Aggies are now 9-1 on the season, and a

Senior day supremacy for Aggies Utah State offense goes off for program-record 804 yards in 62-24 victory over San Jose State By Jaden Johnson SPORTS CONTENT MANAGER
14 days ago in a game against New Mexico, the
Utah State football team set a program record for most total yards in a game with 704. That record didn’t last long.
Saturday afternoon at Maverik Stadium, the
Aggies shattered that record, eclipsing it by 100 yards as they moved the ball for 804 total yards in a 62-24 victory over San Jose State.
After exchanging three-and-outs on each teams’
first possessions, it was the Spartans who made
their way onto the scoreboard first. A low snap caused a rushed punt by USU junior punter Taylor Hintze. The ball rolled a few yards across the
turf before SJSU freshman safety Tre Jenkins
scooped the loose ball and returned it 41 yards for a touchdown.
The Aggies quickly followed that up with a
score of their own on a seven-play, 68-yard drive
capped off by a 42-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Jordan Love to sophomore wide receiver Jordan Nathan.
USU fans remained on the edge of their seats
through much of the first quarter, as the Aggies exchanged blows with the Spartans in a 10-7 first quarter slugfest.
“There are standards that we’re going to hold
internally with the coaches and the players, and I don’t think we played up to our standards early in the game,” Utah State head coach Matt Wells said of the team’s slow start.
Then, the onslaught began.
The Aggies finished the first half on a 38-3 scor-
ing run, including a stretch of four straight pos-
sessions which ended in a USU touchdown

By halftime, Utah State had outgained SJSU
The Aggies went to the
performance, going off for 255 combined rush-
perfect 6-0 in conference play. Only five other
teams in program history have exceeded nine wins in a season.
While this has been a season full of record-set-
ting performances and this is perhaps one of the
most dominant Aggie teams in program history, Rocquemore said they are far from finished.
“Coming off of these games, the one thing I re-
ally think about is how much better we can be,
how much things we can fix, how much things
we need to work on,” he said. “We can get so much better.”

Total domination for women’s basketball in 106-35 victory
By Daedan Olander e SPORTS STAFF WRITER ’ s In their first regular season home game of the
lyear, the Utah State women’s basketball team successfully defended home-court against the
eNorthern New Mexico Eagles, winning the dgame 106-35 and improving to 2-0 on the
eyoung season. + The game was distinctly one-sided, as the contest began with a 10-2 Aggie run, and Utah
sState never let up, finishing the first half with a n34-point lead, 47-14.
e Northern New Mexico was unable to stop aUtah State’s offense at any point during the
-contest, the Aggies moving wherever they wanted to on the court which led to 22 first-
rhalf points in the paint and shooting better nthan 50% from the floor.
p On the other end, the Eagles’ offense was conesistently stymied by a suffocating USU defen-
,sive effort. In addition to nine first-half steals– fwhich led to 14 Aggie points– junior forward Marlene Aniambossou also forced two Eagle
foffensive fouls. a The non-competitive half allowed USU head
acoach Jerry Finkbeiner to spread around minutes and give ten different Aggie players time
aon the court; his faith in them was well-foundred as all ten scored during the game.
e “We had some really good individual things

start to percolate up which I hope in the weeks to come and the months to come become a
foundation and an expected result,” Finkbeiner said of the offense.
Play in the second half was much the same as
the first. Utah State continued to dominate on both ends of the floor with their stout defense
leading to quick offense. An Aniambossou bucket late in the fourth pushed USU past the
100-point mark for the first time since the 2013-14 season, and the final score of 106 was
the most points scored in a game since a win in 1979-80 against Northern Arizona, 110-93.
“It feels great. It’s really encouraging and mo-
tivating like if we keep putting work in,” said
Utah State freshman guard Steph Gorman of
the high-scoring game. “We can do stuff like this again.”
Northern New Mexico’s point total of 35 was
also the fewest points allowed by an Aggie de-
fense since the 2015-16 season in a game against Nevada.
Even more historic still was the margin of vic-
tory of 71 points, the largest differential in Utah State women’s basketball history.
The Aggie defense was led by junior guard Ol-
ivia West who was a terror in the opponent’s backcourt, picking the opposing ball-handlers’ pocket multiple times and finishing with four steals on the game.

Men’s basketball eclipses 100-point mark in second straight game with 100-73 win over Hartford
By Jason Walker o SPORTS SENIOR WRITER
nior forward Dwayne Brown Jr., the Aggies cruised to a 100-73 win over Hartford, win-
ning each of their first two games for the fifth time in six seasons.
Utah State has now eclipsed 100 points in games,
against Montana State on Tuesday. The last time USU had 100 points in consecutive games was in the 1994-95 season. This season, how-
ever, is the first time in program history that the team has started off a season with two straight 100-point games.

A strikingly similar scenario is playing out
