DAILY LINKS: SDSU gets a close win at Utah State

SDSU hangs on to win at Utah State – San Diego Union-Tribune
The box score will show that the Aztecs got 21 points from Trey Kell, had just nine turnovers and held Utah State to 36.7-percent shooting in the second half. The standings will show they are 15-10 overall and above .500 in the Mountain West (7-6) for the first time.

What it won’t show is that this is the exact kind of game they have been losing – taking an early 11-point lead, blowing it, going ahead again and calmly (although barely) milking the clock to zeros. Now they’re 2-7 in games this season decided by six points or less.

ACEE: Manchester’s NFL proposal needs clarity, urgency – San Diego Union-Tribune
Local developer Doug Manchester told NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell via letter earlier this month that he has “assembled a powerful group of associates” who will develop the land on which Qualcomm Stadium sits and privately finance “a new 70,000-seat stadium and surrounding development.”

A town that couldn’t keep an NFL franchise is evidently now teeming with possible ways to develop the land the Chargers abandoned.

There are no specifics contained in the letter, and Manchester declined comment Tuesday.
