No doubt they are the team to beat, they play very good team basketball....
There's very little mentioned that they have a transfer that's active this year who's a 3pt gunner a la Toppert or Kendall Wallace. That is a huge addition to their already loaded roster. I said earlier this year that UNM vs SDSU might very well be the best game the MWC has ever had. If Drew comes in as expected and our young guns continue to improve at the same rate they are...it's ON!
SDSU looks like a mean five headed monster!
BYU and UNLV should be fun. Not too worried about BYU, since it's basically just Jimmer. I think we're comparable to UNLV, and that matchup should be fun!
And holy crap, Harry Potter has his team doing pretty good this year!
This league is definitely loaded this year which means for sure keeping the 4 NCAA bids this year as long as all teams continue to do well in the non-conference.

I STILL can't wait to see Emmanuel put Billy on a poster. I watched the SMC v SDSU game, its gonna be a battle in the PIT.
Their three "bigs" have real nice first steps.

We will beat them at home. Fine by me.
LoboCubs...great matchup lineup..however you forgot the one other item of concern...Coaching Matchup...I think we have an edge there!! I wonder if their bench depth will be as good as ours?
I dont hate admitting that SDSU is good. Heck, I don't even mind saying UNLV is good. Having to admit BYU is good? Well..that makes me throw up into my mouth a little bit.
BTW..I don't think BYU is all that good.
I recorded the game and their big men are always attacking the basket, Alex and Cameron are going to have to be very phyiscal in that matchup. Last yr their bigs ate us alive in San Diego. They look like they were playing with St Marys most of the game... St Marys is a well coached team and lost some guys from last yr team but they were no match for SDSU at any position.
They may not be that great on the road, but suddenly the road game in Fort Worth is going to be much tougher to get a W than it has been in recent years.
I was really surprised at the obvious difference between us and St. Mary's; the game's closest lead of 4 points actually wasn't that close. White and Thomas came back in an they blew it open again. The Gaels had the ONE guard who was fantastic but other than that, they had no answer for our inside presence. TEN blocks! Rahon is going to be a "DAMMIT, WHY DID YOU LEAVE HIM OPEN!" kind of player. The matchup I'm looking for is to see which Lobo will have Kawhi Leonard and which Aztec will have Drew Gordon. Damn, I'm excited for this season. I don't see why the Aztecs cannot match the Lobos' 30 wins of last season. Can't wait for Jan 15, both to see the matchup and to see the new Pit. Cheers, all!
I was at the Utah-Oral Roberts game last week. Utah is awful this year again like last year. They have two big man that do nothing and a forward that really tries to make an impact, but just isn't happening.
I really think that no one on the Aztecs team can play with Drew. He is going to throw around white and Thomas. He is too big for them and too skilled. White and Thomas is going to meet a real Bully this year. Ask DG.
