New Mexico State Aggies Never Had a Chance Against the Washington State Cougars

The Aggies probably had some inkling that they'd have a hard time stopping Mike Leach's offense, as evidenced by their choice to start the game on offense after winning the coin toss. They handled themselves well on that opening drive. Josh Adkins looked sharp passing the ball, and they were able to creep to the … Continue reading New Mexico State Aggies Never Had a Chance Against the Washington State Cougars

New Mexico State Inks Football Broadcast Partnership with FloSports

To be honest, I'm not sure how I feel about this one. See, the Aggies announced yesterday that they've worked with Learfield to make plans for FloSports to broadcast NMSU's home football games for the next three seasons. So first we should probably back-track. What, exactly, is FloSports? Not unlike beIN Sports (the former erstwhile … Continue reading New Mexico State Inks Football Broadcast Partnership with FloSports

New Mexico State Trying Their Own Version of Trial by Fire

In college basketball, there are a number of teams that do their best to create a non-conference schedule that is significantly harder than their conference schedule. In some instances, like Texas Southern or Mississippi Valley State, this is a poor school from a weak conference filling their coffers, but has the fringe benefit that the … Continue reading New Mexico State Trying Their Own Version of Trial by Fire

Terrill Hanks Is a Miami Dolphin Now, But What Are His Chances?

While he did not get drafted this weekend, Terrill Hanks was still signed to a contract as an undrafted free agent with his hometown Miami Dolphins not long after the draft concluded. As many who have followed the draft long enough will tell you, it is not necessary to get drafted in order to make … Continue reading Terrill Hanks Is a Miami Dolphin Now, But What Are His Chances?

2018 NMSU Aggies Football Season Post-Mortem

Well that was an underwhelming final result for the season. Early on, the offense struggled mightily with JUCO transfer Matt Romero under center, a guy who was clearly athletically gifted but didn't know the offense well enough to truly open the playbook and kept getting snakebit by drops from his receivers. Eventually, a transition to … Continue reading 2018 NMSU Aggies Football Season Post-Mortem

What We Missed Out On While We Were Gone

Man, running websites is hard. Especially when you experience the kind of growing pains that cause your network of websites to shut down for a couple of weeks. The problem is that, here at WYWS it's been much longer since we've written, and that's in part because of a football season that was most definitely … Continue reading What We Missed Out On While We Were Gone

That's right people, I've had enough of parsing out six different articles each week going one conference at a time. Ain't nobody got time for that. Instead, we'll just roll with one nice long article that hits all the high points. Ready set go! American Athletic Conference USF is probably more lucky than good. They … Continue reading What We Learned In Week Seven of the Group of Five
