Hawaii finishing 7th? Are you kidding me?

Guaranteed wins in the confrence:

Idaho
USU
New Mexico St
San Jose
Lousiana Tech

We play Nevada at home so I could definitely see us winning that game. We lose to Boise and Fresno and were still 6-2. Get your facts straight.

Las Cruces sports writers are the dumbest of all the WAC media sports experts.Getting up every day putting lipstick on the Aggie pig clouds their decision making process.

This is the closest Felix has come to a realistic pre season appraisal of NMSU's conference standing chances.

Felix, seriously? Fresno, Hawaii, and Boise State. They are the top three teams in the WAC and will probably finish in that order. It's nice to think we will finish better than Hawaii, but let's talk about reality here.

WAC sports fans give no credence to the media poll the coaches poll carries more weight with them.
Most sports writers are a bunch of 5'7 fatties who never played sports more like wannabes I would say.

Hey Felix you wrote about the NMSU Aggies making it into a Bowl game last year. What a bust!! Nothing personal Aggie fans! Luv ya (UNM and UTEP sucks!!), but Felix needs to be re-assigned to doing the comic section; maybe create a comical section called the "FAR SIDE." He's hilariously too funny!!

I see Boise taking the WAC. 14 returning starters. The playmakers on O should help the new QB out immensely. I think the QB will be Kellen Moore, or Sr. Bush Hamdan. I'm a little worried about the O line though.

How jaded and biased could you possibly be? This is one of the most ridiculous predictions in the history of the english language. It speaks very poorly for the city of Las Cruces that you are the best sports writer they could find.

Hawaii playing florida will be a good measuring stick. Then talk smack. Boise has taken down one of the big one's.(Oklahoma)
The bows got stomped by Georgia, now let's see what you do with UF. Then talk smack.

Who's talking smack? Should we recall UH 39 - BSWHO 27; ECU 41 - BS 38! ECU!! Again, you, Ruger guy started it! Also, who are the better research Universities in the Wac...UH, Idaho, Nevada, and others. BS..is still searching. HA HA. In otherwords, much easier to enter into BS (as compared to UH, UNR, IU). In summary: BS = lower standards (As many University of Idaho alums will attest to). And BS's nonconference schedule: Idaho State, Bowling Green, Southern Mississippi!! Lord! Again, low standards!! HA HA Just having some fun with y'all!!

OOh, I missed this part of your post. The only thing that idaho alums can atest to is going 1-11, and losing to Boise. The same as the SMU alums (1-11)
But that's where your old coach went. What was his name,, July Jones, or something like that?

Thanks for the support on playing the Gators! Yeah.. Go BOWS!(Sidenote: I give you much credit on saying "BOWS," because only long time hard core UH sport fans know and cheer "BOWS!") However, ECU is no Geogia. Again, ECU is no Geogia! And you Ponies were favorite to win! Bad man...Bad man. When will the Blue turf team play a SEC football team? Our Bows played at Alabama, played Geogia in the Sugar Bowl which is a hop skip from Athens, and this year the BOWS open at Florida. Oh...do everyone a favor...beat Fresno! Peace! And yes, us Hawaiians love to Blog (According to CNN, Hawaii is top 5 in the Country on blog participation).

Hawaii seventh? You're dreaming. Hawaii might lose at Boise and at Fresno State, though they have owned Fresno at their house, lately, but that is it. Maybe NMSU could upset Hawaii, but that would only give Hawaii three losses in the WAC. Seventh? You've been smokin' that Hawaiian bud.
