If you thought Har­vey We­in­stein was hav­ing a bad year, take a look at what’s been go­ing on at New Mex­ico State. Two games, two losses. Outscored by 70-17. Out-yarded by 978-406. We could go on but it’s just more of the same. After barely sav­ing head coach Doug Martin’s hide by go­ing bowl­ing for the first time in school his­tory last year, the Las Cruces Ag­gies are look­ing more like the lep­ers that won only 23 games in the nine sea­sons prior to 2017. Yes, NMSU has the look of a team that’s been to the moun­tain top – and is in free fall on its way back down. As for the Ag­gies of Utah State, they took mighty Michi­gan State down to the wire last week be­fore los­ing, 38-31, and have only Ten­nessee Tech on deck – mean­ing they will likely take their frus­tra­tion out on Martin and his min­ions here tonight. Eigh­teen re­turn­ing starters and a school-record 52 lettermen sug­gests they’ll do it, es­pe­cially with Utah State win­ning its last 9 home open­ers in a row by an av­er­age mar­gin of 30 PPG. In this lat­est bat­tle of the Ag­gies, the home­boys git ‘er done.
