First up: we’ve got Aggies!
Bedecked in maroon-ish (alright, crimson) and white, hailing from a desolate locale known primarily for missile testing, populated mainly by scorpions and the lovable mutants in The Hills Have Eyes franchise, prone to in-state mockery. Yep, sounds like Aggies. Though their university president favors Western bolo ties over bow ties. I like the way you rock that so unapologetically, Carruthers.
Bill Connelly of SB Nation and Football Outsiders fame does yeoman’s work in breaking down Mutant Atomic Aggy. Similarly, USA Today also penned a good article previewing the Aggie’s chances. Both previews are well worth your time.
Connelly calls New Mexico State “the worst job in FBS football” and, ever the contrarian, I immediately drew a blank in trying to debate that claim, finally offering a half-hearted mental reply of “Err, maybe, Idaho? Or one of the MAC schools, but which one I can’t remember? Wait, Louisiana-Monroe was good last year, right?”
OK, you win.
