Actually, Merlin Olsen made a name for Utah State long ago when he played for the LA Rams. He was the 1960s analog of "Suh" at Utah State. Olsen and Roman Gabriel were in the classic John Wayne Western - "The Undefeated." They both played for the NFL Rams. One scene shows Merlin, a Confederate soldier, in a brawl with Union Army troops and literally picks up a horse-drawn wagon. Gabriel played a Cherokee Scout. It was classic. Olsen was known as part of the "Fearsome Foursome" and also had a TV career on "Little House on the Prarie" with Michael Landon. So Utah State actually had a lot of exposure because of him long ago. That fight scene was classic for a John Wayne film. I know the stadium at Utah State was named after Olsen. I like the southern belle played by Melissa Newman. She reminds me of my sorority friend from Georgia. Olsen was a Utah State player long ago.
