    Big game Saturday and...

    First Post Banner
    Not much talk on here about it...
    Nor is the media giving much hype!!!!
    I think its pretty damn sad, these kids are playing there butts off, I feel we have a very good shot at winning this conference, and would like us to wreck Rocky's Aztecs special season. Come on folks lets get behind this team!!!!!!!!

    I had been talking about it.

    Kinda got a bit kicked cause I brought it up in a qualification for a bowl game. I'm super excited for this game and hope we can pull the upset again.


    FWIW:
    ...............Fresno UNM
    Total Offense 55th(425.8 yds/g) 53(428.6 yds/g)
    Scoring Offense 52nd(33.3ppg) 62(30/4 ppg)
    Total Defense 36th(339 yds/g) 41st(345.6 yds/g)
    Scoring Defense 77th (27.5ppg) 57th (24.6 ppg)
    Go Lobos! Go Nunn! Go Sam! Go Joe!

    If your considering getting a TESLA, please PM me! I may have a discount code.

    Fresno at home and neither team has an impressive win.

    I still think UNM is the much better team though.

    They've got offensive weapons that we'll have to be prepared for. We've got the same. As long as they don't get an early jump on us I see a close, exciting game. Lobos by 7.

    Go Lobo Football.

    Honestly, I think we win this game easily.

    Looking at stats and performance, pretty even. If we were the home team, they would likely be the underdogs by a bit. I think the other thing, although it is really not supposed to, is that historically we have not performed well overall against Fresno. That does have an affect on those placing their bets......
    Go Lobos! Go Nunn! Go Sam! Go Joe!

    Don't care about who is the betting underdog (just me) but I think the Lobos win another close one. I think our D is beginning to show the increase in talent and size and is starting to become experienced enough. I also think our O-line is on the verge of becoming what it needs to be in order for our Offense to function as designed. I'm hoping and actually thinking this is the game it all starts to mesh. If so, we overcome the home field advantage and once again move to another level in regards to our conference competition. Bottom line - Lobos win!

    Unfortunately, not unlike last year, the loss to the Aggies was somewhat of a buzz kill for the entire season.

    in a pick em/even game home team gets a field goal adavantage i.e. 3 points. So the odds makers actual are giving the lobos the slight nod here. Its probably about right until we prove otherwise. Should be a close game.

    I do not look at it that way. I look at it as we still have a chance to finish 11-2 for the season. Will we? No. Probably not but we only have 2 losses. The Aggie game was a long time ago. I live in the present and the future is Saturday at Fresno. It should be a good game.

    That's a good attitude to have, but it doesn't change the fact that we lost (twice) to a program that some here were suggesting be abandoned, and that dampers the enthusiasm of many fans.

    I agree, but I think the effect was less than last year. The attendance at the AF game was really pretty good considering the weather. I think if we win this next one, CSewe attendance should be decent.
    Go Lobos! Go Nunn! Go Sam! Go Joe!

    To answer the original question.....

    Because we live in ABQ, it is October (basketball smell in the air), and we lost to NMSU.
