We covered the Presidential Election at length last semester from the first issue until the last, it was our job to journal the climate of the campus in regards to the historically polarizing event.

“The Aggies can’t beat UNM.” “They don’t win any big non-conference games.” “Tickets are too expensive.” Those are only some of the excuses Aggie fans have used in recent memory as to why they don’t attend NMSU men’s basketball games like they used to when former coach Re...

Marvin Menzies staying is a good thing, right?

Albert Luna

April 5, 2016

  Covering NMSU basketball this past season was a rollercoaster. Many fans can agree the Aggies had a bit of a letdown season after failing to make the NCAA Tournament a record-tying fifth consecutive time. Despite all the success the Aggies were having on the court this season, it always felt...
