Enough of the two quarterback BS. That only works if it actually works but it has no effect.If you choose Walls as your starter then leave him as the starter until the fourth. Same with Fleming.

You got to feel bad for the defense, and special teams.
The Aggie offense is last in the WAC and the COUNTRY!!!

It will be tough to win another game when your pathetic offense can't score a damn point!
Same old stuff

The Aggie football team faces adversity everytime it gets within a mile of the Fulton Center, a cesspool of waste and lethargy. NMSU is a place where tireless coaches work hard and then get fired while an army of lazy administrators skate and get cost of living raises.

the wac is a crap conference for football! it is time to drop the program and use the money for something that produces.

fresno st-59th
la tech-82nd

Maybe it's time to take the redshirt off the freshman QB and start getting him some reps. The two quaterbacks who have played are just not cutting it.

45-7 is not a struggle! 45-41 would be a struggle! 45-7 is a a$$ kicking! Drop the whole program all together!

I watched this one on the Internet and all I can remember today was the chick in the stands that they showed several times yawning.

I read these comments I realize that some of these people never play College football or High school football or may never played football at any level as a time sport.
I'm disappointed at both the Def and Off lines. I don't care if the guy you're facing is 1st team All American and beats you on ever play. He should have sweat run down his back went he heads for the sideline, because of the effort you put up!
Tackle, tackle, tackle! I saw to many LB's and DB's throw shoulder into players and not tackling. To throw a shoulder into a person you have to drop your head, meaning you take you eyes of the player. Suggestion! Time for basics, the walk through tackling drills. Where a player wraps his arms around a persons, progressing to a slow jog, simple basics.
Whether your USC or Div III school tackling is tackling, blocking is blocking. Everyone have to put on their shoulder pads and cleats the same way. I was told Football is 45% physical, 35% Coaching strategy, and 20% inspiration. I understand that Coach Walker didn't recruit most of these young men, but still he's got three wins where the former took two and a half years to get three wins. Be encouraged, whether you’re down 28-0 at half you should tell your Off Cor that win or lose you want 14 points out of the Off and the Def Cor that you want a Int a fumble or 6 points.
It's more than just Football it's teaching young men lesson on how not to give up, when you've been turn down away in four job interview, how to reinvent their business plan when two banks have already said no or fix a neighbor's car when you don't have the correct tools or skills.
A man are not made by what he has, he's are made by what he does with what he doesn't have!
Life is a whole lot different lived then talked about, then lived. That's why it doesn't make a different if you got beat on the last play, there's and hike and a new play.

Don't blame the coaches.
Take a look at the recruiters and the money for scholarships.
99 guys on the roster. 30 from Calif, 13 from NM. Yeah, OK that other NM team isn't doing well either. What's the message?
It's not the coaches that make the turnovers, pass the interceptions, and fail to gain ground.
Its the players.
If we get what we pay for, could we do a better job at looking before we sign?
This program is not doing well....
...and if you want pure athleticism check out the volleyball team.
But, how to sell it to all the older Aggie Alums that think Football sells the university. Something is messed up.

I like the suggestion of taking the redshirt off the freshman. Get him some snaps now so next year MAYBE we won't be in the same position as this year, without a QB who can friggin throw the ball.

I like the title of the article: "Aggies struggle..." Too bad this happens after last weeks win. I was hopeful that they could build off of it. If this team falls behind early like it did agains La Tech, they just don't have the offense to get back in the game. Give them time to recruit. Remember, this team was pieced together late.

Bench the starters and throw everybody else in to make some plays. They have NOTHING to lose. No pun intended.

...people are quick to forget what our record was for the last couple of years...I was expecting our record to mirror UNM's...and so was the rest of the country...GOOD JOB SO FAR, COACH WALKER, AND ALL OF THE AGGIE PLAYERS FOR LEAVING THEIR BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS ON THE FIELD!...GO AGGIES!

Amazing Aggies - they are amazingly POOR!
Better than 0-12 but look at the win loss
records of the teams they have beat - if that
does not give you a clear picture than maybe
a shot of the scoreboard will bring some

WOW listen to you people. You guys are acting like spoiled brats. This team fought hard to be 3-3 and when they lose their fourth game big you act like there is no hope for the team. You act like they are 0-7. I live in Las Vegas and you are acting worse than UNLV fans right now. Every team has a bad game or two in a season. The football program is improving and they will be a top 5 team in the WAC in years to come. This is different when Samuel and Mumme came in. Under Walker we will win and turn things around, just be patient. The coaches and players know what they need to improve on. Just support your Aggies. In recent years the Aggies have gone to the wire with Fresno State and came up short every time. Make this year different. Go to the game, have a great time, and cheer on your Aggies!

Walls was 10 of 12 for only 51 yards. Sounds to me like the offensive coordinator needs to stretch the defense with some passing downfield. Opening up the passing game will open up the running game and also let your defense rest more.

Walls could have thrown down field but didn't! He took the bail out each play. Don't blame the OC for the player not making the plays.

How can fans of a team that is consistently in the bottom 20 of all Division I schools be spoiled? Does beating a lower division Prairie View Little Sisters of the Poor by three points or by squeaking by UNM, which is second on ESPN's Bottom Ten list, make fans spoiled?
