NM State is putting up some points - trap game?
« on: September 25, 2017, 07:12:36 pm »

This team just put up major points against UTEP and almost beat Ariz St. -

Is this a trap game?

I think so....but hope not.

if we lose to NMst CBB should just retire after the game.

I can't even fathom the concept.  that is worse than losing to ULM, Toledo, Rutgers, etc. they are practically an FCS team.

Their qb looks solid....lots of receiving threats. They come in with a 'us against the world' mentality - who knows what happens. We better beat them!

They ARE from Las Cruces, NM - don't count 'em out

I don't know how we are going to get to 6 wins as it is.  my 7 win prediction just lost 2 that I was counting on.

Our D isn't exactly hitting on all cylinders...we also have injuries and inexperience on that side of the ball.

We just saw Okie Lite get beat by a hungry team with a good attitude and refusing to quit.  Our mental state is what worries me.  Our players need to be inside looking at film, seeing what they did wrong, hearing real ways to correct it, looking at film of NMSU and learning what they can do to slow them down on O and beat them with our O.  Every second up to game time needs to be about our mental state and how to mend it.  If we are mentally ready, we will win without even taking the field for practice this week.  Of course, this isn't going to happen.

Yes, I believe all SEC teams take these types of games lightly - they look at them as a 'tune up' game....could be a mistake here

It's an 11 a.m. game with a less than full stadium and crowd that won't be too pumped up. But NM State will presumably be pumped up. Have no idea how good they are. I figure the Hogs will win by 20 -- but that is exactly the feeling I had before ULM and Akron and some others...

I can get onboard with your post "12247".  Being mentally prepared is key.  I know they're fired up to get put some numbers in "W" column.  Hopefully CBB is more hands on with the OL and CDE is staying creative with play calling. The glaring thing is the defense going into this weekend and what scheme is CPR dialing up to stop NMST aerial attack.  Twistitup said NMST has a pretty good offense (passing wise) so the DL will need to get to QB fast and the DB's need to stay in position for PBU's and INTs.  I can say this will give the Hogs some serious much needed momentum.

Bad analogy.  We saw Oklahoma State get beat by a better team.

Count on some assistants to be shown the door if we drop this game.  BB did it three games into the season with Markuson a few years ago at WI, when the season started slow. 

Maybe we can get a pool going to see which one will be let go first...

It is not possible for Arkansas to lose this game because they will be angry over the loss to Tex A&M.  Therefore, Arkansas will play hard and difference in talent is far too great.

Real question is, are they traveling by bus?  If so, they will be tired and we can wear them out.

Absolutely this ... It would not be wise for a marginal Razorback team to get over confident or underwhelmed about NMSU. Arkansas has a small history of losing games like this...the 11am start time adds to the concern.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/game?gameId=400868970
And what gives you that feeling?  Traditionally, La Tech has been a much better program than NMSU.  And you're acting like there's a 4-0 Aggie team rolling in here on Saturday. 

Look, we got beat by a coach (Sumlin) that A) has Bret's number and B) has better players.  Our other loss is to, quite simply, a better team (and better coach for that matter.)  Nothing points to NMSU coming in our house and having any real chance at winning.
