I don't know if this is as big of a deal to some people, but I'm really bummed about Wyoming not making the trip to play the Aggies this year in football.
Nicholls State? Uggghhh. I thought we dealt with this last year with the 1-AA scrappers. Wyoming offered a step up. I decent mid-major with a classic coach in Joe Glenn and a quarterback with a classic name (Karsten Sween). That and great uniforms.
The problem for me really stands in the fact that the Cowboys would have presented a solid Week 1 challenge for the Aggies. One that would have brought intrigue and given fans - and writers - a chance to gouge where they stand.
I just want to see NMSU move in the right direction. You do that by playing competition that is better. Is Wyoming better? I don't know but they certainly aren't worse. And I feel as if Wyoming is an underrated team. Again, it would have been an interesting gouge to see where NMSU stands and would have generated some excitement - again, maybe just for me.
Oh well. Nicholls will come to LC. And judging by how NMSU played to lesser competition last year - Arkansas Pine Bluff anyone? - it could be a decent game. One NMSU can't afford to lose.
