Will the New Mexico St game from last season ever be rescheduled?  I ask this after noticing the Aggies will be playing Hawaii TWICE this season -- home and away!  🥴  Never heard of such a thing!  🙃

 

New Mexico State is starting to make a habit of this. They played the Liberty Flames twice in the regular season in both 2018 and 2019, with each team winning one game in 2018 and Liberty winning both in 2019.

Interesting point from this morning's Beacon article-

 

Arth said 115 student-athletes fill his roster. Of that number, only approximately 15 have any spring practice experience. The current roster includes about 10 players who enrolled early.

Also from GT's article:

 

Looking at the practice field, it’s difficult to not notice 6-foot-6 quarterback D.J. Irons, junior college transfer from Iowa Central Community College.

His presence along with Kato Nelson, who returns after recovering from a shoulder injury and is 100 percent for the first time since 2019, and last year's starter Zach Gibson give UA a quarterback room with unique potential.

Some sort of spring roster would be nice, or even an updated coaching staff to see who replaced Chris Cook and Jamael Lett. I suppose beggars can't be choosers!

 Kato sounds very mature.

He should. He has to be 30 years old by now.

This isn't a good sign.  Tulsa shouldn't be taking positional coaches from us.

Tulsa is from a better conference than the MAC.

 

They've played in 10 bowl games over the past 15 years, winning 6.

 

The Zips have played in 3, winning 1.

 

In their three bowl wins against MAC opponents, they've won by a combined 163-30.

Teon Dollard really likes him 😶

Being a Zips football fan ain't for wimps. 😑

 

Dollard, UA’s star running back, has been suspended from athletics but is still enrolled at the university, UA officials said.

“He’s suspended right now, and I’m not going to say any more than that,” UA Coach Tom Arth said Monday at a spring practice.

Poor decision making by this young man has ruined his life. Lets pray he pulls it together and moves in the right direction. Terrible loss for our backfield.

Whatever makes you feel better about losing position coaches to another G5 school.

I can't find what their assistant salary pool is offhand, but their HC gets paid ~4x what Arth does at 1.7mm. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Everett at least doubled his salary. What would you do?

 

I hate to say this thought is creeping into my head, but can we really expect to ever be consistently competitive outside of our conference if we can't keep up financially with peers across the  country?

Hopefully they add liquor to the beer sales.  This feels like more of a whiskey than beer season.
