On the eve of the regular season TheRedMenace.com was able to talk with head coach Ritchie Mckay about recruiting. As today Dobson HS (Arizona) PG Mickey McConnell signed his Letter of Intent to play for the University of New Mexico.
Mickey in the house!
We also learned that Big Derek Oestreicher is going to redshirt for the upcoming season.
Coach and I talked about the trip up to Oregon. One that he can't talk about the actual results, but about the ins and outs of the thing.
We also spoke about Roman Martinez and his start.
We talked about the upcoming season and learned that no. The team will not be wearing those tight shorts this Friday for the game vs. Abiline Christian even though it is a throwback night. Unfortunately, Coach Mckay talks about the type of shorts worn in those days and he mentions a photo of him wearing said tight trunks. I looked far and wide on my computer and for some reason can't find the photo. If anyone has it please contact us.
I have to apologize for my phone, but the interview is good so listen and enjoy!
