If they expect to have a replacement by mid December, Boston has already been doing his homework. There shouldn't be any suprise to this move. They hired Mumme based on his track record for explosive offenses and the fact he had been somewhat successful at his other stops. It had to be the single worst decision in Bostons time here. NMSU basically wasted 4 years on a 'retread' coach who's offense was nothing but dink and dunks, and gimmicks.$800,000 for 11 wins (5 against 1AA schools).

It will be interesting to see who the Aggies target as the next coach. There is an enormous amount of young coordinators eager for the opportunity. Do they go young or do they bring in another 'retread' because of experience?

Didn't Steve Ramirez nearly 20 years ago write a story for the El Paso Times kind of looking at the future of Aggie football in the "new century." Something about Garrey Carruthers being president of NMSU and Aggie Memorial being turned into a soccer stadium. Maybe its time for Steve to revisit that article from days gone by.

It doesn't matter who they bring in. Attendance is the key to a winning program and the local economy cannot support both college and high school sports, especially football. Maybe Mr. McGrath will hold another golf tourney for the Aggies. NMSU, the place where football coaches go to die.
That said, I will never, ever, quit rooting for the Aggies.
