Coach Stew Morrill has been here before. There was trepidation in Logan when Utah State moved from the Big West -- a league it won three times in seven seasons under Morrill -- to the tougher WAC. Now the Aggies are moving from the WAC -- which they won four times in eight years -- to the MWC. And while Morrill professes to be nervous, there's little reason to think the Aggies won't be able to compete right away, just as they did before.
