I think this years schedule was fine. It was a realistic competitive schedule and we even got a win over a Pac-12 school. At the same time even though we finish we a sensational 25-5 record I feel like we easily should have been 29-1. The only game we were never in was that Bakersfield game and there is no way we should have list at home to Utah Valley. Also, not winning the WAC regular season title has left a bad taste in my mouth. I hope our Aggies play with a huge chip on their shoulder this week in Vegas and I hope the refs call the game correctly where allowing grabbing and hand checking are called, especially the way Bakersfield plays.
How awesome! I had a dream I went to see the Aggies play in Chicago for some reason. I say we start organizing now to get fans to Chicago. So that way NMSU is well represented. I'm not a student but I have serval friends that go to NMSU that would be down to go.
While NMSU plays in Chicago every year (so far), playing against Illinois is a big deal and several ex-Aggies from the windy city area (Rodney Walker, Keith Johnson, Ron Coleman, Thomas Wyatt, Lance Jackson, et. al.) are excited about the game.
Will Lou being one of those blazers that is half Crimson and half Orange?
All Crimson I hope.
He was an Aggie first, and best, and most importantly, and NMSU helped put him on the map, just as he helped put NMSU on the map. Just as they are with Coach Weir.
Sweet Lou used to have a house up on Fairway Drive up off of Telshor back in the day. My sister used to go over to hang out with one of his daughters. Mr. Henson was the man. And still is the man. He reminds me of Arnold Palmer in a way. A man of the people, but fiercely competitive when need be, and a fan favorite to all college basketball fans no matter what team they rooted for. Pure class. Does things the right way, and is loved by all. No question about it.
Never forget your roots.
PS. I wonder if Lou is going to Vegas to help Coach Weir bring home the trophy???
