    New Mexico at UNLV

    Congrats to Menzies and UNLV. Great start for MWC play. So i take it he isn't being fired after this year?

    New Mexico at UNLV

    When the other team is simply overmatched due to injuries, everything looks better. Wyoming just doesn't have the players this year. UNLV got great looks the entire second half of UNM game in Albq. Will be interesting to see what adjustments are made in zone, or if a mix of man and zone is utilized. Overall, athleticism and talent looked on par to me in first game.

    So your lost respect was based on one data point? Cool...

    WAC over MWC

    i am not dancing, but laggie asses? I don't know if that's an attempt at trash talk, but it is really bad. You lost to UNM by 27 in the Pit. I give it a pass for one off night. You followed up with a 1 point win against Boise. Those 2 games do not bode well. Hopefully it's not a trend, because a legit top 10 team would have won both by double digits. Y'all? Is that an attempt at a southern accent? In Reno? We didn't lose to a D2 team. And we didn't get blown out by a 8-9 team either. NMSU doesn't suck. If it did, that would be like saying the entire MWC sucks. Like it or not, we are on par with top third, and don't even bring up the bottom half of the MWC. I assume you like your conference, so strictly from an RPI standpoint, that argument makes no sense. On an intellectual level, it still beats laggie assies and y'all though. Seriously, up your grammar game senor (or senorita). I could be wrong, but i thought the last time we met in the post season was in the WAC tourney when we knocked you out in Vegas. Am i off by a year? It's been awhile.

    Why does the WCC need to expand? They are a group of small religious schools that seem to have a stable conference. Gonzaga flirted with the MWC to secure a better deal and they got it. BYU isn't going anywhere, nor is St. Mary's. So why invite Denver of all schools, much less GCU? Are you thinking that it will drive more tv money, a la adding the San Jose market?

    WAC over MWC

    Worst year ever? How many years now has the MWC been a single bid league? SDSU's upset in MWC tourney gave you 2 last year. This is no longer an exception, it is reality. The P5 has a stranglehold on at large bids, and that isn't changing anytime soon. Consider, Frenso is sitting at 12-4. How many more games can they realistically lose and get an at large? 2? 1? USU is at 12-5 and is already out. Your logic is the MWC will improve, but WAC teams won't? Based on what? UVU and Seattle have improved steadily. GCU has money and has only had the chance at an NCAA tourney for 1 season. You don't think they will get better? And NMSU has been solid for years. Just ask UNM. Or CSU. As a UNLV fan, when were your best years? Not in the MWC. That was in the Big West. Did conference matter back then or did you just have great teams and a great coach?

    Yeap, 2 autobids to cover 20 D1 schools, the majority of them in the west, plus a small chance of one at large for MWC if Nevada wins tourney if Vegas. And i doubt USU or Fresno would get an at large should they lose in MWC tourney. Everyone else is already out for an at large 16 games in. Such is life as a mid major. And if Nevada drops a couple more games, including in the MWC tourney, they get a much tougher opponent to open NCAA. Not sure what is better for MWC - a top 2 or 3 seed with Nevada as sole team, or a lower seed and better opponent with the MWC tourney champion getting an 11 to 14 seed and likely loss.

    Poll: When does the shutdown end?

    I vote for first week of February. 3 more weeks of this circus sounds about right.
  10. Perhaps he is ignoring his history of making similar statements and thinks this is the only time it was actually noticed...

    WAC over MWC

    Kansas is currently ranked 7th and is 15-2. As far as never going to the NCAA tourney, most MWC teams don't. We have still won 5 in a row versus UNM, beat CSU by 20, beat UNM in our last game by 35. That game was just one of those nights in the long rivalry. It happens. We'll drop more games in WAC play, anywhere from 1 to 3 would be my guess. It's on par with the MWC this year. And we'll see if the shots drop in Vegas. Either way, our RPI fits in nicely with top half of MWC. Last year it would have been second to Nevada if i remember correctly. As long as both Jans and Weir are the coaches for both NM D1 programs, we'll have the upper hand. These things go in cycles as you are well aware. Onward and upward. If we are knocked off in Vegas, i would expect an NIT invite. GCU looked solid in the Pan Am last week, even though it never should have come down to the last second half court shot. 2 ugly turnovers in last 30 seconds, one of them unforced, lead to 2 layups for GCU and turned a 3 point lead when we had the ball to a 1 point deficit. And our 80% FT shooter missed 2 with 6 seconds. But Johnny McCants, the local kid, saved the day.

    Yeah, i was just kidding you man on the 35 point loss. Really. You will see i rarely talk trash on this site with anyone. You guys are good. I love to see mid majors out west make noise. Well, everyone except UNM. Can't bring myself to cheer for the other in state team. I would guess most fans feel that way. Truth be told, we are going to be challenged in the WAC, especially in Vegas tourney. That GCU game was no joke. They match up really well. I suspect others will as well.

    LOL, the old we are everybody's Super Bowl argument. Best of luck. You are trying way too hard to talk trash. The 35 point win was hilarious because of the irony. Nevada is good. Not top 5 P5 good, but you have a decent chance again at a sweet sixteen with the right matchups. Too bad you won't be tested very much in conference, unless you lay an egg like you did in the Pit or we did at Cal Baptist. Yeah, yeah, i get it. The Pit is tough. We have won 5 games in a row against UNM. Must be because their our Super Bowl/World Series, or something like that right? Have fun talking with other Aggie fans. I actually like the MWC conference and teams from out west, so i'll catch your games occasionally.

    I am saying we curb stomped a team that beat you by 27. And UNM proceeded to lose to UNLV and CSU after beating you. Nevada's good. So is NMSU. UNM is average but has talent and probably issues with guys getting on the same page on any given night, hence the ups and downs. NMSU also lost by 3 to Kansas. If we put it all together, our ceiling on any given night is higher than most MWC teams. We are also capable of having a cold shooting night every once in awhile.

    You just lost by 27 to a team we beat by 35 (how is that for a coincidence). We were up by 40+ and coach emptied his bench with 6 minutes, or it would have probably been closer to 50. I guess cherry picking one game out of a season doesn't really make too much sense does it. UNM isn't as bad as the NMSU game, you aren't as bad as the UNM game, and NMSU isn't as bad as the Baptist game.
