If Boise State goes to a bowl game, NMSU gets a cut of the money from the WAC. It is our fiscal duty to lose big to Boise State.

Samuel served as head coach at New Mexico State University from 1997-2004 and is the third winningest coach in school history with 57 victories. New Mexico State finished 6-5 in 1999, its first winning season since 1992 and only its third in 32 years. In 2002, his Aggie squad posted a mark of 7-5 which represented the most victories by the program since 1967.

His teams won the Rio Grande Championship twice and he led the Aggies to an undefeated season at home in 2002. During his tenure, Samuel was instrumental in New Mexico State's ranking of 13th in graduation rates among NCAA Division I-A football programs at 76 percent.

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 **** of a coach. I think LCHS and MHS could beat us. I am sickened by this PATHETIC display of "football". This **** 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..

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.
Yea by letting a decent "college" basketball coach out of his contract and extending the contract of a bad college coach. The two biggest sports and he screws it up.

No body makes you go to the game do they? And if it kills you to pay 6.00 to be entertained dont go! I wish everyone was at every game! What else do you have to do? And if you are a grown man or woman that is crying or letting our football program affect your life and you arent closely connected to a player or the program you have bigger problems! Im not saying coach Mumme is the best coach in the world but it isnt like he took an amazing program and drove it into the ground!!! We have some great players with a lot of talent. And who really in their right mind would want to come here and coach at a place with a low salary, small budget, and terrible community support?!?! On top of that what recruit would want to play for that?

third winning season in 32 yrs and how is this supposed to be fixed anytime soon? Blow it up move down or do away with football all together. That is a fact that should have been left out of arguing how good a program or coach was or is. Looks like Mumme is on course according to those dismal numbers

Looks like we need to set the bar a little lower. MAybe be happy with 4 or 5 wins and call 7-5 a super season.

Hal "The Towel" Mumme hasn't earned any love up here in Boise, either. He should be forced to run through a gauntlet of towel whippers on his way out of town.

It's gotta be tough for you all. And frustrating. To have one of the best BBall programs in the WAC to one of the worst FB programs.

How many years "The Towell" been your coach? You'ld think he'ld have put together a team to make a run at the top, but hasn't. Time for the AD to change paths and get someone else in there.

Good luck this weekend.

Sams also had about 20% of the funds and resources that these guys gave Hal. Hal has done so much less with 3 times more than Sams did. Bring Sams back or bring in Barny Cotton. I too agree that Boston should be canned if he doesnt grow some ballz and fire Hal.

You say entertained. Watching a team lose week in and week out year after year and then another year and another and another to infinity. I would be more entertained watching ants be fried with a magnifying glass. How can anyone defend this program is beyond me?

Maybe the aggies should forfeit so they can avoid the inevitable pounding that they are gonna get...boise actually has something to play for..and good call on tony samuels at least when he was here there was a winning season and he was in contention for the conference championship...even though it was the sunbelt..

Ya know, I wonder what Freddy Zechmann and Mike Knoll are doing now. Wonder if they need a job. They sucked just as bad then, maybe they'll suck less than Mumme now.

The Boise game could get embarrasing but how embarrasing could it really get. NMSU has already lost to one of the worst teams in the Nation.

Then just as I said before if it is o so teriible DONT come and dont complain I dont see you out there putting in 5 hours a day and putting your sweat on the field so....in the larger picture it isnt hurting you any, Do you give thousands of dollars to the program? So if you arent giving to the school and you arent on the team just enjoy spending time with friends and family and watching a game.

I do give thousands of dollars to NMSU athletics, by being underpaid by thousands of dollars every year. So that gives me a right to complain.

So does every other football team in America. This is the dumbest comment I have ever read. They are on Scholarship to play here and are doing a lousy job of it. Every team is working hard..the difference is that they are successful and we are awful. I would ratherpick lint off a fat mans @$$ crack than go to another Aggie football game

I realize they are on scholarship. I am a student. I have class with some of these men you talk trash about everyday! Guess what they are getting school payed for to show up to practice, work hard, and go out an play every game. They do that. If you feel you can do a better job, try to. and until then have fun picking the lint off a fat mans butt!!!
