For starters, I would like to apologize that I failed to get anything up following the Nevada game. I was in Memphis this past weekend and didn't get a chance to write. Considering what I said the last time I posted, I really should have gotten something up sooner about the team's win vs. Nevada.
I saw bits and pieces of the Nevada game on TV. It was a gutty game and I give the Aggies credit. Going into it, I did not think they were going to win. I was surprised that they beat the Wolf Pack, especially minus Gillenwater. I'll be the first to say it. I just didn't see it coming.
I stand by everything I wrote on my last blog post. I still think the team has underwhelmed to a large degree. The win over Nevada doesn't change my perception of the Aggies that much. I give them credit, but I still voice similar concerns about the team. One game doesn't turn everything around.
The one thing I have learned about the team is that they continue to play hard for Menzies. I said it following the San Jose State game at home, when they blew a big lead but came back and won. That was a tough spot for them and they managed to get back on the Spartans. They proved it again on Saturday. Other teams would have packed it in on the second game of a tough road trip, minus Gillenwater no less. Being on ESPN may have given them a lift and they didn't fold.
Nevada is down this year. The Wolf Pack have lost at home to Idaho, Louisiana Tech and the Aggies. They also should have lost in Las Cruces. They stole that game late. I actually think Nevada has a good team, but they have lost some head scratchers this season.
Again, I give the Aggies credit for Saturday. It was a good win for them.
