Following the Aggies hoops team reminds me of driving in traffic in a big city. Just when you think things are going well and they are making progress, something always happens to bring it screeching to a halt.
A previous poster asked me where I'm at regarding Wendell's arrest and subsequent release over the weekend.
Do I think Wendell should have been allowed to play? It doesn't matter. I think that things get blown out of proportion but I understand that people think it's a disturbing trend and I tend to agree. I get that people's frustration is that Wendell played later that night. My understanding was that Wendell did pay the fines that were in question either previously or shortly after he was arrested. If that was the case, why not allow him to play?
I also have become numb I guess to these issues and understand Aggies fans. I could have a long post here on transgressions from NMSU players the past three years. I'm not defending the program. I guess I'm defending the players on this occasion. I would say that Young has grown up after his incident in a cafeteria and we did report Wendell's initial arrest in the spring that resulted in the fines that he had a warrant out.
I guess I'm just curious what you think the school should have done? My understanding is that he will play tonight. Troy Gillenwater will not, as he was not cleared as of late Wednesday. NMSU is hoping for a decision on his waiver late this week but next week is more realistic. All things we've heard before but I know there is some interest there.
Hawaii's Dwain Williams didn't play last week against San Jose State. Williams had a family issue in California and he could miss tonight's game as well.
