Let's be honest...NMST was fool's gold
« on: October 02, 2017, 12:39:12 pm »

If we play like we did against NMST - we will get slaughtered in SEC play...

I know  it's a down year for the SEC - but not THAT down. Teams will be picking apart the TCU, NMST, and A&M films - they will exploit our weaknesses (and there are many of them).

I am a huge fan, but a realistic one too - NMST was a decent Sunbelt team with subpar talent- not a good meter for improvement when we play against some of the toughest teams in the nation in the next month.

I hope we come out and crush USCe but I wouldn't put any money on it. NMST was fools gold

All last week everyone was saying we shouldn't sleep on them. They have a chance for an upset. Hogs take care of business in a game that went pretty much the way every one with a brain expected.



Can't have it both ways.

Nobody is claiming we won the national title after the game.  What is wrong with you?

Can't have it both ways.

THEY.  ARE.  MAD.   WE.  WON!!!!!

Just like the fans who were mad about the attendance being better than expected.

They want the program to fail and catch fire.

When it doesn't they try and start the fire themselves.

We aren't crushing anyone this year especially in the SEC. In fact, we will get crushed several times before the year is over. I'd be surprised if we actually make a bowl game.

Maybe I was 24 hours too early with this thread, but pump the damn breaks......I'm HAPPY we won but I'm not ready to do the two step quite yet. IT WAS NEW MEXICO STATE.

GREAT WIN - but let's not over do it - we are focused on SEC wins last I checked, we are in the SEC true?

I like to keep it real, we need a big win this week against a solid South Carolina team and there is much improvement that needs to happen is are going to get a W on the road.

Everybody had AU circled as a W, what happened to that. NO TEAM in the SEC has more problems than we do. Oline, Defense, and Special Teams have major issues, MAJOR - but according to CBB everything can be corrected. We shall see...

In other news, Arkansas covered the spread for the first time this season vs. NMST.  By one.

No they didnt.

LSU just lost to Troy. Tennessee just stomped by Georgia.

Might I suggest you do something else in your spare time?

Who here has been boasting other than the fact it was a nice to get a win.



No one is predicting a 10 win season or anything.

CBB's 5th year - yes I expect to contend

He DID come to win the SEC....didn't he? We already gave him pass on year one AND two, now he needs one in year 5? What kind of program are we running?

You aren't running a damn thing, thank God.

How are we not contending? I missed where we already played all of our SEC games and lost every single one.

I don't think anyone is making anymore of the game than it was a victory. As far as USCe being a solid team, no more then we are. They did beat NC St, but then needed a FG as time expired to beat La Tech, so not a world beater. I think if we can run the ball effectively, around 180-200 yards, then we can escape with a W.

Lol. Nobody expected us to beat Auburn. That's silly. Well, maybe a few unrealistic folks did. Fools gold? I think that term implies you get something you think is great but turns out not to be. I don't think anyone is saying nmsu is a great win. Mostly, I see people trying to point out some things that went right while acknowledging that it wasn't a huge test.

As far as THE SEC goes, outside of bama, Georgia, and Auburn.....nobody is by far and away better. We all stink pretty bad. I think we should be able to beat SC. But thanks for the reality shot.....it was much needed.

I did.

It was pretty much what I expected. Their QB, who was expected fo put up some numbers did.

We held them to 11 rushing yards and never lost control of the game.
