What a great weekend for Aggie athletics. OK, that is a HUGE understatement, but it is hard to find the right words to describe it. Signature program wins for both football and volleyball in the same weekend…. how do you capture that in words? Awesome? Fantastic? Amazing? Incredible? How about, “we are on the way.”
For many months, the NMSU athletic department has talked about the investments made to improve the program. Unfortunately, those improvements in terms of investment do not have overnight effects. Today, as we look at the football win at Nevada and the volleyball sweep (SWEEP!!) at #7 Hawaii, we look at each of the wins as program changing events. Each opens up the doors of possibilities. Each allows us to see the fruits of the investment labors. Each allows us to see the future as a very bright place, full of success and rewards.
It was obviously a great weekend for NMSU athletics. I believe that it is a sign of the times to come rather than as a single, great moment in time. It is an indication that the vision employed over three years ago is starting to become a reality. As a good friend told me a couple of years ago about a project he was working on, "Hold on! This is going to be a hell of a ride!" I hope that you join us for this ride.
