Matt Ramondo to sit out Aggie football season

Matt Ramondo, a former Mayfield Trojan and current New Mexico State Aggie football player, will not suit up this season due to NCAA transfer rules, according to NMSU's media relations department.

Ramondo, who transferred to NMSU this past offseason from Michigan State where he was a redshirt player last year, attempted for a hardship waiver from the NCAA, allowing him to take the field immediately (transfers typically have to sit out a year upon joining their new team). His appeal was denied on Tuesday.

Listed on the Aggie roster as a 6-foot-4, 320-pound defensive lineman, Ramondo had a good fall camp with the Aggies. He will take the field next year for the team as a sophomore.

With NMSU in conference limbo. I wonder if Ramondo might consider leaving the program?

Any word on season tkts? I heard we are down 2,000 tickets from last years, 7,500.

Speaking of season tickets. I see NMSU signed up w/ to try & sell tkts and you get $150 gift card.

How about us loyal fans that purchased them months ago?
We can't even get pictured tickets muuch less, $150 in gift cards!!

Another great move from the Athletic Dept. We pay our dues to help the program and you reward the last minute folks.
Way to take care of those who take care of you!

DUH,it's just Aggie football and how many even care about Aggie football or NMS in general.

If Anyone cared would they be without a conference and on the brink of destruction?

My advice to all Aggie athletes.Head for the border, Louise
