Aggies note

Marvin Menzies told me the team will start practicing for their Canada tour on Aug. 1, but didn't go much further than that. I'm also hoping to get more of the teams that they will face in the next couple days. ... The Aggies Renaldo Dixon was cleared and will redshirt this year for the Aggies. NMSU is loaded in the frontcourt so redshirting him is a good move. Menzies hopes to add one more player to the roster before the season tips off. ... The schedule is nearly complete. A previous poster asked what cupcakes are on the NMSU schedule. Most of the non-conference games have been posted on this blog, including road games against UNM, UTEP, UMass, USC or Bradley, Arizona and home games against UNM, UTEP, Pacific, St. Mary's, Louisiana Lafayette and a home Bracketbuster game. There are a couple of holes for home games as part of the Springfield tournament, but overall, this is probably the most challenging and complete schedule from top to bottom the Aggies have had since Menzies has been here.

Tell Marvin to do the home and home with San Diego State.

I grew up in Las Cruces and I'm an Aggie fan, but I get annoyed with some of the comments people make on here. I don't know how you put up with some of the idiots on here Jason..lol. The "cupcake" comment by that poster was one of the stupidest I've ever heard. NM State is playing a pretty decent non-conference schedule.

Dude! stupidest? Really? I guess you are from Las Cruces.
Groves; whats the word on our academic scholars? Where have they been all summer, what have they been doing, how many classes do they have to take and pass to be able to play, etc.... do they get to go to canada if they aren't eligible? Whats the inside scoop?

Everyone is eligible. Those that needed summer courses passed them. Wendell was tearing it up playing game in No. Cal. And I'm sure the rest of the guys have been working hard on their game. We are gonna be a very good team this year.
