Here at Forgotten5, we like to tell the untold stories of Group of 5 successes and heartwarming moments. However, we'd be remiss if we didn't also cover the other things that provide warmth to G5 fans everywhere during these increasingly brisk autumnal evenings. Like dumpster fires. Or extremely poorly conceived mixed drinks from that broke-ass … Continue reading Forgotten5’s Week 8 Bottom 10: Bad Teams, Bad Mixed Drinks
When looking at the revival of New Mexico State football, many look to the South Alabama game last year or the Arizona Bowl victory as seminal moments for the program. Some will even mention the back to back victories over New Mexico in 2016 and 2017, which included a triumph over a 9-win Lobo team. … Continue reading Remembering That Time When The Aggies Ushered in the End of an Era
So I, of course, saw none of this game, because these "lesser" games are rarely viewable outside of the region of Las Cruces. Watching games via live stats updates, especially close games, is a great way to test your cardiac system. That being said, Josh Adkins is 2-0 as a starting quarterback, and he finished … Continue reading New Mexico State Triumphs In Winning Their First Pursuit of Liberty: Are We An Air Raid Team Now?
It was nice to know that, as rough as things have gone, the Aggies could still find a way to pull out a road win against a discombobulated UTEP team. Didn't get swept in the rivalry games, check. Another positive was getting to enter the bye week on a winning note - there were still … Continue reading New Mexico State Engages In the Pursuit of Liberty and Happiness

New Mexico State has struggled offensively in two games and wound up on the wrong side of … Continue reading It’s Time For the New Mexico State Aggies to Earn Some Respect
So that's two weeks in and two losses, neither of which has been particularly pretty.

The defense played extremely well considering the … Continue reading New Mexico State Is Teaching Me that Expectations are a Funny Thing
So thanks to Hawai'i, we've got four teams to talk about, but six games worth of information. That said, it's probably best if we digest this one team at a time. Army is younger and has more growing to do than we thought Lots of folks were in a tizzy after Army fell to Duke … Continue reading What Did We Learn From Our First Week of Independent Football?
It will be hard to say whether the Aggies will have an easier time recovering from their loss to Wyoming due to the short turnaround, or a harder time. Is it good that they had to forget about that game as soon as humanly possible so that they could shift to practicing the Wyoming gameplan … Continue reading New Mexico State Looks to Rebound Against Minnesota On Short Notice
And when we win this game, We’ll buy a keg of booze, And we’ll drink it to the Aggies ‘till we wobble in our shoes!
