As much as I like J-Hawk, Reggie Larry schooled NMSU on the WAC final.

Let's see what this offseason brings and takes. It will be an interesting few months.

I've always had an appreciation for the damage ole Ricky Bobby could do.

If it wasn't for that glory/ball hog Koby Carl, the Broncos could have been better the previous year as well.

Interesting and I can't argue he wasn't the best all around player in the WAC, but I think both stefon Jackson and J.R. Giddens were better than Reggie Larry, (especially Giddens).

I saw bleedcrimson.net interview Marvin Menzies and he calls the season a success???

I guess being inconsistent all year, finally being over the .500 mark in mid-February, losing in the WAC championship despite homecourt advantage, and no post season play is a reason to be happy!

No doubt that Menzies has lower standards.
Get it together or get in the soup line coach!

When you are expected to win the WAC, and can't win the WAC tourney despite the best talent and home court advantage, honorable mention is the best we can expect for a talent like Hawkins. I think it's a shame Peete is no where to be mentioned. And this happens in a season where the WAC was embarrasingly weak. I blame two people for this: RT for leaving, and Menzies for being in over his abilities.

Aggie Glare, how can you blame RT for leaving? The man was looking out for his best interest's. It may have been selfish, but if someone offered you your dream job and more money, wouldn't you take it?

RT definitely did what was in his best interest. And he let everyone know the NBA was his dream job. If I were in his shoes, I'd do the same thing. But there is collateral damage, and in this case it was NMSU and great kids/players like Hawkins and Peete who sat out a year to come play for RT.
