The results were disastrous the last time San Diego State hired a coach named Long, but the Aztecs think they got it right this time. Rocky Long is the new coach, taking over for Brady Hoke, who departed for Michigan. Hoke rebuilt a program left in ashes by Chuck Long, who won only nine games in three seasons. San Diego State won that many games in 2010. There is plenty to build on for Hoke's successor, starting with running back Ronnie Hillman, who rushed for 1,532 yards and 17 touchdowns as a freshman. He'll run behind an offensive line that returns four starters. The biggest game of 2011? That's easy — a Sept. 24 matchup against Michigan and Hoke.
