The Daily Aggie :: 08/29/07

Rivals.com has posted their season preview of the Aggie basketball team. Football hasn't even started and we're already previewing basketball. Wow. Rivals has ranked NMSU #44 in their top 64.

Teddy Feinberg of the Las Cruces Sun-News reported on his blog that former teammate of Herb Pope, Antonio Reddic, was seen on campus Monday attending Aggie football practice. Teddy mentioned that Reddic was the leading scorer for the Aliquippa HS basketball team last season so I checked out his profile at Scouts Inc. and there was nothing to be found under basketball. I did however find him listed as a prospect at the Safety position, unfortunately Scouts Inc. had not done an evaluation on him. So my question is, when was the last time NMSU had a two sport athlete on scholarship (football/basketball)? If you know, either e-mail me via the contact form or leave your answer in the comments and I'll try to find out the answer. By the way, the last two sport athlete of any kind I can think of was Joey Vincent who played QB for the Aggies and was also on the baseball team (I believe he got drafted by a MLB team last year).

Slightly off the topic of Aggie athletics, Ferd Lewis (no I didn't misspell his name, it's actually Ferd) of the Honolulu Advertiser gives his predictions for the Warrior football team. While I don't disagree that Hawai'i could be this year's Boise State, his final score predictions are a wee bit outlandish. Example, he has Hawai'i beating their first opponent Northern Colorado by a whopping 78-10 score. Their other Division I-AA (Championship subdivision) opponent, Charleston Southern, well Ferd has them falling 72-6. We'll see. At least he only has Hawai'i dropping 44 points on our beloved Aggies.

UPDATE If you at any time have downloaded the football schedule desktop wallpaper, you'll need to re-download them again. I noticed a slight error in the schedule. We had Nevada listed twice on the schedule. So update your wallpapers everyone!
