The Daily Aggie :: 08/25/07

The fall college sports season officially kicked off for the Aggies last night as the Aggie volleyball team notched the first win of the 2007/2008 Aggie season with a sweep of Albany at the Northern Arizona University Invitational.

Look for a complete writeup this weekend by our volleyball expert Mel.

The Sporting News' Mike DeCourcy writes about future Aggie basketball opponent Duke's schedule. DeCourcy writes "Duke basketball is mighty, but its commitment to remaining at Cameron Indoor Stadium constricts the Blue Devils' ability to write the biggest checks possible to lure opponents for guarantee games. What Duke offers instead is a "unique experience," Cragg said, as well as the high degree of certainty that someone (most likely ESPN) will put the game on national television."

Our condolences go out to the family of Oklahoma recruit Herman Mitchell. The linebacker was shot to death in an apartment complex on Friday. Aggie fans are painfully familiar with the death of a prospect as last summer the Aggie football team lost projected starting linebacker Shauna Leupepe. The experience was almost relived when early this year Aggie star basketball recruit Herb Pope was shot.

UPDATE

Mike Huguenin of the Orlando Sentinal gives his ranking of all 120 (he included Western Kentucky) Division I-A quarterbacks (I guess he didn't get the Football Bowl Subdivision memo). Aggie signal caller Chase Holbrook comes in at number 10. The quarterbacks from rivals UNM and UTEP come in at 83 and 88 respectively.
