Will that happen? Well, that remains to be seen. “So I think, (if we) stay healthy, stay together, I think those things are very possible this season. Obviously, San Jose State had just a remarkable (2020).” Remarkable and unexpected. In a pandemic-shortened, choppy season, the plucky Spartans emerged from the autumn chaos as one of college football’s biggest surprises. San Jose State won the Mountain West with a 7-0 conference mark (7-1 overall) after being picked to finish fifth in the West division last July.

On July 7, 1998, Walt Weiss was introduced at Coors Field as a National League starter in his first and only All-Star Game appearance. As he jogged out of the dugout to a standing ovation, Weiss’ perspective on the game and — life — shifted.
