The loss of Justine Buries will hurt to a degree. Justine was a solid player and he provided a different presence in the Aggie backfield last season. When both he and Tonny Glynn were healthy, NMSU's ground attack was very solid. Solid with Justine and explosive with Tonny. And they were a strong combo.
Still, NMSU has brought in some backs in the offseason. And I'm sure Justine felt like the odd-man-out to a degree. Glynn needs to stay on the field. And the Aggies will need a newcommer or two to emerge as a bonafide ball carrier. I've said it before and I'll say it again. A healthy Aggie offense will put up points. They proved that last year. And with that, the team will be competitive. Still, injuries are a part of the game. To avoid them, it takes some luck.
