Aggie football story on ESPN

Click here for the story.....

It would really be awesome if the Aggie football program continues to move forward under Walker. Going to the NCAA in basketball and improving on last year's win total and challenging the .500 mark in football would qualify as a great year for Aggie sports.

I think the football schedule is tougher this year for the Aggies. There is no pushover on the schedule — although some would argue if Praire View was even a push over last season. San Diego State will be tough Week 1, as the Aztecs should be better in Brady Hoke's second season with the program. Last year, the Spartans beat the Aggies in San Diego.

New Mexico will be improved under Mike Locksley as well — it would be tough to be worse than they were during last year's one-win campaign. The Lobos will also come to Las Cruces seeking revenge after last season's Aggie triumph in Albuquerque.

NMSU's road conference games are also difficult — when are they not? Utah State and Idaho, those would be winnable games at home, but away those opponents prove to be much tougher. I think stealing a game at one of these venues is a must if the Aggies hope to improve on last year's three-win total. The Aggies will also have to beat San Jose State and Hawaii here. Both games are winnable.

At Fresno State and at Nevada will be extremely tough games. The Aggies will need to win their winnable games and steal a couple if they expect to take some steps forward.
