Couple of NMSU football notes

The Western Athletic Conference football schedule should be released soon after TV dates are settled.

Also, NMSU linebacker Jason Scott has been shifted from linebacker to safety for spring practice.

I was extremely happy to see that two Las Cruces Products, Ryan Honeycutt and Daniel Gonzales played a pivitol role in defeating NMSU Baseball. It is unfortunate that both of these local talents are not Aggies. It goes to prove that our local athletes can compete at that level. It is my understanding that neither were offered the opportunity to stay home and play for NMSU. Rather our coaching staff continues to go outside this area and recruit from other areas in the country only to produce medicore teams each year. I attended the game against the Lobos and would tell you the full house was not there to watch our Aggies, the majority was there to cheer on the two local young men. It would appear the coaching staff and administration would take a look at that and figure out that recruiting some of the locals helps produce much needed attendance and enthusiasm to a lack luster program. I was also amazed that the Aggies beat up poor N Dakota and Chicago State and even broke a homerun record. Funny thing when they saw D1 pitching the hitting masacare disappeared. Lastly we produce some of the best baseball in the state in our three high school programs, however year after year this talent goes unoticed. Coach Birmingham summed it up best when he stated "I love Las Cruces Players." In my opinion that is a slap in the face of NMSU Coaching and a brave comment that says I will beat you with your own kids. Sad.

The previous comment has nothing to do with the original post, but I agree. However, Baseball is probably the easiest sport to translate to the next level. Football and basketball is very different from HS to College. That said, there arent a lot of fans packing the PAC to cheer on Gordo. As a season ticket holder who drives up to the PAC every home game from EP. I am ashamed at how bad attendance was this year. Even against UNM and UTEP.

On a side note, I never want to see the Aggies lose, even if it is at the hands of local kids.

As the last comment was put, this has nothing to do with the post,to a point. I to was at the baseball game and could not believe the size of the crowd. Those two home grown kids who are actually position players not pitchers who might play once in a BLUE MOON just to say here I played your talent now go away, proved that they can play. Can you imagine all of the lost talent from years past that could of helped the programs from all of the sports, Football Basketball. With local talent on the playing field maybe the University could of received more income to fix up the places they compete in. My understanding is there are two kids who have signed for next year, if the coach is wise, money wise he will play them no matter how they play. The talent he has now would not make a difference anyway so it would not hurt the program. He also signed three kids from ELPaso who no one has ever heard of, from the same team, if you can get three D-1 players on one team you should at least be able to compete in your city. Take note coaches local talent will bring fans to the baseball, Football, and Basketball games which mean more money which could result in BONUSES and HIGHER WAGES.

What a crowd at the Aggie Lobo Baseball game it was great to see those two kids from Las Cruces playing. My Question is how do you get to the next level. My son has been talking about playing in the College World Series since he was a T-Baller. He will be attending High School next year, and even Gonzales who was playing shortstop for the lobos who looks normal, was not very big compared to the other players but when he made contact it was very hard. Was it legal how they got there or should we find an alternate route

Two comments in two of these posts were unbelievably STUPID! Baseball is by far the hardest transition to make from HS to D1 and the bone head who asked "was it legal" how they got there??? no he juiced...that why Gonzales is "normal".......it's called BUST YOUR ASS, as for should you find an alternate route...yes, it's called get off the couch and throw BP to you kid three times a week and have him stop talking about Omaha and start "working" to get to Omaha.

I played minor league ball, and I think the 2nd post is right.

Baseball is the easiest to translate, because it's the only sport that allows the Majors to take the real talent out of the system. The NFL and NBA dont use farm leagues. So a talented prep star in either of those two needs to go to school. In hoops a minimum of 1 yr(maybe 2 if Stern has his way,) football 3.

Meanwhile a kid like Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers was playing in the minors a week after he graduated. Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, etc. No other sport takes the top talent out of the lowest level and prop them in the highest level overnight. Not even the NBA before the age limit did that. LeBron still had a few months of practice before he threw on a Cavs jersey for real. Just because you didn't agree doesn't mean the previous post is wrong.

And NO, do not use any alternative methods. The only part of the 8:03 post that was right was "BUST YOUR ASS."

. neither one of those kids was "projectable in high school" i agree we need to sign more local kids but before you go ranting about these kids maybe you should realize that was "one game" and although they are having good years i would much rather have marques .390 18 homers 60 plus rbi than gonzalez 320 2 hr 20 rbi. and i fairly easy to tell honeycutt hasnt taken the "natural route" in playing baseball. kids normally dont gain that much weight that quick. either way they are both good players but had aguirre not gotten hurt i would take him over honeycutte anyday. hes a better pure hitter. anyone who watched both hitters would clearly see that.
