back and forth

A day after Aggies fans seemed relieved that Herb Pope was coming back, I like some of you, have heard the opposite. That he has changed his mind again and is leaving. I dont know if I've ever seen such a spectacle and it's all over a player that has only played in a handful of games. My gut feeling is that he won't be back, but that, like this story could change the following day. Keep checking back and I'll put something up as soon as I know something concrete. In the meantime, do Aggies fans want Pope back for what he did on the court last year, or is it just how highly he was recruited and you want that kind of a player in a NMSU uniform?

I for one hope he stays in the East Coast. I would not cheer for him if he stays. NMSU should just let him go.

I want him back for both reasons. Because he was so highly recruited and since he only played a handful of games we haven't seen the potential. It is that potential that makes me want to see him for a full season in crimson.

I wanted him back because of the potential we saw in the last two games of the WAC tourney. Now I'm not sure. The kid needs to focus, and get an education, if he is truly concerned for his family's welfare.

Sorry to see him go, but I thinks it's for the best. Our team will be very talented and will be competive and Win without him. Can someone say TEAM.

GO AGGIES!!!!

Let's move on. He doesn't want to be here. Theus recruited him and promised him the moon. He probably took a pay cutt when Theus left and Menzies took over.

Theus would have MADE him a "player" whether Pope liked it or not. Theus would have got it out of him. Menzies is too soft on his players, which is why they blew the Boise game last year.

LOL. We blew a 3OT game because Menzies was too soft? Try to sound not so stupid.
