Wild day in The Nation, with much going down surrounding the Theus fallout.
Boston was downright giddy regarding the amount of interest shown in the job. It sounds as if some viable candidates are on the horizon and rightfully so. The NMSU job is a very attractive one as the Aggies have talent across the court. People are definitely wired up regarding the opening and it should be fun to see how things shape out over the next couple days.
While no player reaction was uncovered, some recruits were interviewed and that picture isn’t as rosy. Luster was genuinely hurt by the experience and doesn’t seem fired up about Cruces at all. It didn’t seem Pope was pleased either but he said the right things. And rightfully so. These kids aren’t coming here because of the proximity to El Paso and the view of the Organs. They came because of Theus. Boston will have to get the troops on the right page and the new coaching selection will have a lot to do with it.
Big week for NMSU and big week for Boston. He sounds optimistic and might have a few tricks up his sleeve
