Hello all. Sorry about the blog, I've been AWOL the past week. My apologize.
Honestly, if your excited about the Aggie basketball team, raise your hand. I don't think many are up right now. This team lost twice last week, once at Boise and again at Idaho. Where's the excitement for this ballclub?
I look at the San Jose State game tonight and, I wonder, is this even a big game? I don't even really mean for the Aggies. I really mean in the grand scheme of things. Just look at the standings. These are two teams in the middle of the WAC pack. Two teams that aren't 7-0 in conference or 5-1 in conference but rather both 3-4. Do you think the other WAC teams or fans in other WAC markets have this one circled on their calender? Highly unlikely.
What happened here with NMSU? This used to be a hot-button program. Maybe I'm being too harsh but the proof is in the pudding. Attendance is down, there hasn't been a lot of positive feedback on the blog. Even without me posting on the team, nobody wrote anything about it. Normally, people would be at my throat for not commenting on Aggie hoops. Not this time around.
Maybe this post will change things on that front but, after two losses away from home, things are a little down right now. NMSU needs to win both of these games at home. SJSU followed by Hawaii. The Aggies should win but it doesn't seem like they are an elite team in the conference. They're middle of the pack right now. And I don't think a sweep is guaranteed.
