WOOF WOOF WOOF
Looks like I got 12-4. Should be enough to win the league. This conference has become a total meat grinder.
13-3. Lose one on the sdsu & wyo road trip. Lose one on the unlv & fresno road trip and lose at csu.
12-4 wins the league no question. Maybe even 11-5. This league is freaking loaded this year. This is by far the best year of the MWC in its history. Cant wait!
Wait up am I seeing this right? Is this really a Lobo Board? Are we not allowed to be Homers? I can't believe there is sooo little faith that we can win "AWAY" games at STDSU and UNLV. We did it last season, We beat STDSU to essentially atleast clinch a tie for the regular season crown, and we beat UNLV in the Vegas Invitational.... Seriously people I dont care who are what plays for them.... What happened to "We Are NEW MEXICO"?
You damn right Im being a Homer... Im CONVINCED we will beat them both at home and AWAY. The Ship RUNS through THE PIT!! WOOF WOOF WOOF! I predict 15-1 with the only slip up at that measly Colorado State as a slip up.... We have the BEST BACKCOURT in the NATION! And NO IM NOT BEING A HOMER in saying that. I Believe that to be the ABSOLUTE TRUTH AND FACT! NAME ONE backcourt better then ours.
13+1 is 14. We play 16 games.
Look at the history and it would tell you nobody just runs through this conferance. Too hard of the road.
I got us at 13-3, but I'll pop bottles with JCB if we go 16-0.
I honestly made those picks knowing very little about the other teams at this point. A more educated guess will come in December. I have us losing to Nevada on the road.
Also, I think adding USU and SJSU will just about offset the loss of SDSU and BSU in hoops when looking at this schedule. We could build just as good of a rivalry with the Aggs as we've had with the asstecs, it'll just take a few years.

Got Lobo's at 12-4 also. I think that will wind up in a tie for first place in the MWC. More competition than ever in the MWC this season. UNLV will probably be the pre-season favorites due to big name recruits and transfers, but not sure how 8 new players will mesh with their returnees.
I went optimistic and have us at 14-2 (no surprise that I'm optimistic, eh?).
Basketball is a game of matchups and with that said
UNLV - Loss. I just don't think UNM matches up well enough inside to win, I think the guard play is about even and ultimately the Forwards/Center will determine the game and this year without gordon and hardman (played great against UNLV every game) I'm not sure it's a battle UNM can win.
Fresno - Win, while FSU has good big coming in UNM is the better more complete team inside the bit, get the axe ready because someone is going to the woodshed.
Boise- Win, Boise gave a few scares last year but they still don't have the talent to put it all together.
CSU - Win, Rams were the only team outside of UNLV and the bottom half that had a horrible away record I don't see them with the firepower to upset them.
SDSU- Loss, Viejas will be packed and it will be a highly rated Aztec team (they get UNLV at home too during first half).
Wyoming - Win, Lobo's have Wyo's number and proven they can excute in a half court setting.
Nevada - Win, Reno has played at the T&M and at USU in recent years but I don't think anything will be prepare them for the pit. Alford is a better X's and O's coach then Reno's Carter.
Air Force - Win, Lobo's are AFA kryponite there isn't much else that can be said other then that.
UNLV - Loss, Matchups see above!!!
Fresno - Win, Fresno is tested and I feel they will burn out in the MWC around this point in the season if not sooner.
Bosie - Win, BSU will give lobo fans the scare of the season 1 point last second shot win.
CSU - Loss, Fort Collins is no joke and the rams will get revenge on earlier drubbing from the pit.
SDSU - Win, Don't think SDSU will have the firepower to beat the Lobo's in the pit.
Wyoming- Win, Don't think Wyo will have the horses to win the games.
Nevada - Loss, Upset alert I really think Reno at Home will give the Lobo's all they can handle and then some. I don't know what it is but at that arena when heavy favorites go in they normally just squeak out wins.
Air Force - Win, See above comment
1. UNLV (14-2)
2a. UNM (holds tie breaker over SDSU) (11-5)
2b. SDSU (11-5)
4. Reno (10-6)
5. CSU (9-7)
6. Wyo (8-8)
7. Boise St. (6-10)
8. Fresno St. (4-12)
8b. AFA (4-12)
UNM gets to the final of the MWC tournament and loses to UNLV, gets a 6 seed in dance.
•"The secret is to have eight great players and four others who will cheer like crazy." --Jerry Tarkanian
I feel that's a fair assessment
IF UNLV can mesh then watch out, CSU always scares me, Nevada also scares me a little.
SDSU doesn't scare me at all! Lol
