Here is a sobering look at our current roster for Men's Basketball.
Nothing to write home about and get excited about. The current writeup on nmstatesports.com for Jans says he has 4 of 5 starters back for the coming season. Wrong. We have two current starters back. Eli and Wilkins. That is it. Sidy may or may not be back at full strength. Marlon Jones may or may not come back at full strength. Same for Bollo G. The rest are subs at best and poor subs at worst. Jemerio Jones can be a starter. 3 guards on the current roster is no way to start a season.
It seems late in the recruiting cycle to land any good / great players to come to NMSU. Unless Jans and Gudino can pull a rabbit out of a hat, we are in a piss poor position to win anything next season. What is the timeframe moving forward? Are there deadlines that we need to watch / look forward to with hope? Or just whenever the next shoe drops. Man Qweire really screwed us. If any of the 98 other UNM choices had taken the lousy Wise Pies job then the 99th choice would have still been our coach and we would likely have a full cupboard.
Right now the cupboard looks pretty bare with many items past their expiration date / turning sour. I just do not see the silver lining based on this current roster. Perhaps the rabbit is ready to come out of the hat? Perhaps.
This is beginning to remind me of the Hut days of early Menzies when all of our good players were on Hut suspension pending further review. We know that did not really materialize and we hobbled along each year not knowing who would play, who would be on the roster, and who could actually take the floor for games.
We sure as hell do not need anymore bad news, but vamos a ver on that.
Vamos a ver on the whole thing. It does not look to rosy right now. Oh well such is life. I do not know what we did to deserve this torture.
