Welcome those who are receiving their first issue of the BBC (Big Blue Club) Update.  The BBC Update is a two-way communication venture between Utah State University's Athletics Department and Aggie fans everywhere, geared specifically to enhance dialogue between the two entities.  The BBC Update is disseminated via e-mail and we encourage each of you to forward e-mail addresses of those individuals you believe would enjoy receiving this weekly letter.  This is not a venture to duplicate the efforts of Aggie Media Relations; however, it is a medium to increase awareness about Aggie Athletics that reaches beyond geographic boundaries.  Furthermore, it is not necessary to be a member of the BBC to receive the Update.

KEVIN CURTIS AT THE NFL COMBINE
USU's recording setting receiver, Kevin Curtis, appears to have made some noise at the NFL Combine last week.  An Aggie fan sent me the following quote from ESPN's NFL analyst, Len Pasquarelli, on Kevin and asked me to share it.

"There were some very good 40-yard times posted by wide receivers on Sunday but no one hit the kind of daily double that Kevin Curtis of Utah State did. One of the fastest-rising players in the off-season, Curtis clocked a time between 4.38-4.40. But get this: He also scored a 48 on the 50-question Wonderlic test, the psychological profile battery administered to players. That could be the second-best score ever. Former Cincinnati punter Pat McInally, a Harvard man, is believed to be the only player to ever record a perfect 50 on the test."
