"Menzies said. "That's really what you have to take from the game. You play to win, but at this stage of the season, it's more about winning conference games."

Haven't we heard that now for about three years and after every UTEP and UNM loss? It's getting very old. We need a new Athletic director and an experienced coach from a winning more assistants please!

Rebound. Block out. Take care of the ball. Make free throws.

Tough to be learning that stuff at this stage of the season.

pretty embarrassing loss to a Big Sky opponent at home.

Exactly to all the previous comments! Menzies needs to get more involved instead of walking around playing pocket pool!
Gordo looked nervous against #32, if he wants all the local hoopla like his big old family gives him he needs to play like that little #32 played and not get all frazzled!

Someone needs to tell Mrs Menzie that she to represents NMSU when she is sitting out there cheering! She needs to watch her language and what she is teaching her children sitting with her!

So what Menzies is saying is that you only play to win conference games. Yeah, great strategy Menzo. That will get us real far.

I'll be nice since this is a family newspaper...Marvin Menzies can not a good coach and is in denial that he or this team is any good. We keep hearing the same old story about losing and winning. He does not have a good record against top teams and his aggies have been slapped around by UNM and UTEP. Yes he gets to use the excuse these players are hurt and we are young blah blah.He gets out coached every game and luck to get the wins he does. At this school you can be okay to average in some sports. But not Men's Basketball..One NCAA apperance in all the time he has been is not good enough. That WAC Championship was a fluke. Never liked it when Boston hired Menzies and the way this season is going we are seeing why.

Boston is the joke around here people and when will you all wake up and figure this out. Does Boston make any of you feel as though you are a part of all this? Has Boston ever engaged you in a conversation that really matters? Has Boston ever shown you that he has earned our trust and efforts? No! The guy is a fake and is robbing us blind as he builds a retirement home down south where he is from. He thinks he is so much smarter than all of us, but we still buy in to his dumb stuff; "journey to excellence" and we blame our hard working coaches.
Time to get off our coaches; all sports and hit Boston! Our coaches are good people, they work their rear ends off with nothing and sacrifice their families and their sanity for us, who don't ever fully support them and start blaming them at a loss. The problem goes much deeper than our coaches. Go over to NMSU and meet the coaches. Sit and talk with them and they will open their doors and their hearts to you. I have done this with many of them and found them to be first class people who really care about this are and this school. It is hard working with a half loaded gun, while their AD sits in his office robbing us all blind. And while you are at it....go hit that Macy clown in the mouth too.
I'm with you NMSU coaches,,,,,!!

What now Handy Andy? We got beat by a DIAA FCS Team, and we supposedly have DI players. If the Aggies was DIAA FCS they would have DIAA FCS players and the same thing would happen.

We lost one game. Big whoop! Our situation still doesn't change. We still have to win the WAC tournament to go dancing. I wonder what you people would be saying if TG would have made the buzzer beater. Relax people, just get behind your team. We're second in our conference and control our own destiny. We have four games left:
@SJSU ESPN2 Wensday
@Hawaii Saturday
vs UtAgs ESPN2 Next Wensday
vs UNR Next Saturday Senior Day Gordo's last home game in the Pan American Center
These are games that we are more than capable of getting the Wen. Don't tell a coach how to coach. You'll look like those parents from the movie Hosiers. Coach Menzies knows what he is doing and has this program going in the right direction. Get behind this team!

Any good coach worth his salary knows to call a time out with the final seconds winding down and you have possesion of the ball. Twice this situation has occured. Saturday it finally cost Menzies the chance at victory. I only hope Menzies is renting! He needs to go!!

I think they need to get rid of some of those so called coaches who look scared to stand next to worthless Menzie, get rid of the football team and coaches all together and bring back and pay Reggis Theus. And Hoss I dont know why you changed your mind he is worthless.
