Focus for what? Focus so that Boise State doesn't beat them 70-0? This program is a joke. Hal Mumme is a joke. McKinley Boston is a joke. I love how McKinley Boston has the audacity to question the fans support? He hired a retread gimmick coach whose playbook is less sophisticated than the 7th grade playbook from Vista. How do they fix the defense this season? By hiring another retread coach who is apparentelly hell bent on breaking the record for most rushing yards allowed in a season. I can't wait until both are gone from NMSU. We all see it, why can't the university?

As for the Aggie 'homers', spare me the rah, rah rhetoric. This program is autrocious. If you can't see it, then hitch a ride with Mumme when he's shown the door.

How do the Aggies lose to lowly Idaho. The defense finally plays a decent game, and the offense thanks them by falling apart. I've seen it all from this pathetic team. This loss has set this program back few years. I don't understand how after playing well and beating a good team (Nevada) on the road. This team get's handled at home against SJSU. Then loses on the road to an even more pathetic Idaho. These coaches don't understand the concept of game planning. Just pathetic, ha ha Idaho ha ha.............

Time to tar & feather Mumme and his staff and roll them down I-10 and out of our lives. Pathetic.

It's a safe bet to say that the Aggies are done. No bowl and no hope for a decent NMSU football team. In no way should we have lost to lowly Idaho. If Holbrook is considered one the best QB's in the nation then the Great Pumpkin will arise and shower us all with skittles this comming holloween.

How do you explain such a pathetic showing by NMSU vs SJSU and Idaho??? I think Boise State is going to pound NMSU into the ground! Better have a few ambulances on standby cause this one is going to get ugly. This was supposed to be a turn around season and all it's been is one HUGE dissapointment! I think Mumme has done all he can and it's time for him and his sorry coaching staff to go coach highschool football somewhere. How in the H E double hockey sticks do you lose to Idaho? This program is down right rotten and smells of cow dung!

Mumme and Boston are the only two who work at NMSU who are held to no performance standards. Why is that, NMSU administrators?

there was more dignity losing big to Boise last season than losing to a very weak Idaho this weekend, it is a sure sign of a team on the way down again, sad to see.

How low can it get? Well this is about the lowest so far but stay tuned, Boise St is coming to town and they execute and play hard all game long. I'm sure they have plenty of injuries on their team too, but they'll win with who they have, that's what a winning program does!

I'd give the offensive coaches a solid F for their efforts this season. Does Mumme coach special temas also because they are almost as poor. Mumme's playcalling is stale, predictable, and ineffective. I hope I'm wrong but I see another blowout from Boise St. and possibly the end of Mumme?

How dare Hal Mumme go into this Idaho matchup unprepared. A PISS POOR PERFORMANCE if i have ever seen one. If Mumme isnt fired after we lose by 100 to boise... I want Bostons head as well. He is the brains behind keeping this idiot of a coach. I think LCHS and MHS could beat us. I am sickened by this PATHETIC display of "football". This idiot should have been FIRED AFTER WE LOST TO UTAH STATE LAST YEAR. Why the h*ll do the WORST TEAMS IN NCAA FOOTBALL BEAT US???? WHY??????????HAL THATS FREAKING WHY!!!!!!!!!! HAL GET THE HECK OUT OF LC.
BOSTON GET A WINNER OR GET LOST. You had the "huevos" to call out the fans of LC...none of them like Hal..and if hes not gone we wont like you. I already hate you for keeping this moron for one mroe year. Pathetic. Sad. Expected. I for one want to see us win some games..
I WANT A REFUND ON MY SEASON TICKES BOSTON. AWFUL. I hoenslty had to take the day off of work because I am so RAGED. THANKS FOR NOTHING BOSTON...HAL...NMSU FOOTBALL ROSTER. LOSERS with a big gigantic capitol L

GO AGGIES GO - down the field and out the gate and
why your at it drag along Mumme and Boston.

Amazing - a 1-5 team - the doormat of the WAC - with this kind of performance your going no where -
thanks but I will stay home Saturday and watch
paint dry and the grass grow rather than watch
the blowout of all blowouts.

Hal Mumme needs to go. Period. Until that happens, this team will SUCK. His offense is so simple it is laughable. Predictable, stale, and no balance whatsoever. This is the best coach they could get? This was the big name coach to open our WAC membership? I noticed that you never hear about the Aggie 'Air Raid' anymore.

Say what you will, but Tony Samuels teams played better defense and could run the ball. He might not have been the greatest coach, but he was a hell of a lot better than this worthless bum.

Let's get focused Mumme. Do your usual routine. Sit in a golf cart drinking a coke while the assistants run practice. Then during the game, walk around aimlessly on the sideline with no headset and that stupid towel around your neck. Naturally, you can fix your hair every 20 seconds. Then watch your team lose again. 12-34 in almost four years. What is sad is that 5 of those wins are against IAA schools. 7-34 in three plus seasons. Why and the hell is this guy still here.

Hey now...lay off Boston. Lotta folks quick to jump on a successful black man because he's an easy target.

Yeah, he needs to get rid of Mumme. But Mumme is doing the coaching, not Boston. Boston is a good manager and has done a lot for the athletic programs.

I have been to almosts every game since the stadium opened. This is about as bad as I have ever seen. I predice a moving van in front of Mumme's door at the end of the last game. I would not shed any tears if there was also one in front of Boston's house. Saturday was truely an embarassment.

I miss the days of Tony Samuels. Now he was a good coach. Good running game, play action passing, VARIETY of offensive sets and a different game plan for each opponent. We even had good special teams and a decent defense back then, not to mention two winning seasons when he was here.
