A "neutral court"? That's basically the same as a home game, in our case, given our shitty fans. I watched highlights of last night's home game against Nevada, and the turnout was pathetic, as usual. As an Aggie alum who now lives in ABQ, I must say it is embarrassing that Las Cruces doesn't support the team. Last year's game on ESPN was a national embarrassment with more empty seats than not. Get off your ass and support the Aggies, Las Cruces!

So ... in other words, you're too cheap to support them. Got it. Speak for yourself, by the way.

He may be tired of watching the most talent in the WAC underachieve and play without giving it their best effort night in and night out. Just the mere notion that our guys can turn up the pressure and intensity at tournament time , kinda like a faucet, does not say much for the leadership on the team, from both the court and bench. Nothing like coasting through the season being cool(kinda like the coach).It might get them through the WAC, but it won't help them advance. Just remember , someone has to win the WAC.

I went to the game and I though there was a pretty good size crowd---better than recent games and the crowd consisted of REAL AGGIE FANS. I saw no signs of a boycott whatsoever. Some fans left after the game and didn't stay around to recognize Gordo, but an impressive number of fans did stay. If you were boycotting the game, you missed a very good, exciting game!

No Pee J is just an Anti Aggie Fan and he wants the Athletic Programs at NMS to go belly up. I figure if you want a better team you support them. You can't get a better coach if you don't have the money to pay him. The good players don't want to play for a team that isn't supported. It seems like the general public is saying give me the muscle and then I will get in shape. I remember when the fans use to fill the Pan American Center and the Aggies use to have some wild games. Yes it was a long time ago, but there is no excuse the support is down. Back then there was less people in Las Cruces, so there should be plenty of fans. GO AGGIES!

You missed some some information about Pee J. Pee J was born a female and "scorned" by several aggie athletes---that is where the "Anti Aggie" attitude comes from---"no wrath like a woman scorned". She is not disappointed by aggie losses or poor play---she is delighted by it. As I recall, she also got booted from one of the woman's teams.
