This list has a couple glaring omissions:

1) The TD throw to Philly Brown before halftime against Wisconsin was a) a great throw very similar to the one to Spencer on this list, b) changed that game completely due to when it happened. That has gotta be on here -- maybe even #1. 

2) The 4th and 1 stop by Josh Perry against Northwestern was arguably the team's biggest defensive play of the year. It iced the game.

For the very little that was considered up in the air here, there are a few contradictions to what we've heard since camp started and I'm guessing it's a ploy to list upperclassmen as starters.

From everything Urban has said no way Chris Fields is your starter ahead of Dontre Wilson. Fields hasn't even been mentioned at that position as far as I've heard. That's respect to a senior if I've ever seen it.

Same goes with Jordan Hall as a RB. Why put Dunn or Ball as the starter there when you can say Hall is your starting RB, which leaves room for Fields at H-B? These depth charts are worthless for skill positions in offenses like Urban's.

I posted this in the Forum after missing this, so I'll repost the rest of what I found:

Some quick research tells me that $1.2 million represents 21% of SDSU athletics' annual operating budget. In 3 hours, San Diego State will rope in 1/5 of the money they need for the entire year to fund 18 sports (6 men's & 12 women's) and the opportunity for more than 250 student-athletes to get an education and continue the pursuit of their sport.

For all the negativity surrounding the big money in college football, it's things like this that get completely overlooked. There's also so much crap given to big-name programs for their early-season scheduling, but it's a huge act of charity when these smaller schools come visit the big guys. Even if they get slaughtered by 30 points, they bring home a very meaningful sum of money at schools where the athletic department is often constantly trying to stay afloat without the big-money alumni base of an Ohio State.

It's a win/win, unless of course you're Michigan and you have to worry about losing to Appalachian State...
