I never see any other states with two state-named schools have this issue so often. Wonder why. Maybe just what comes up in Google images

Some people still think New Mexico is a part of Mexico. So, there is not a great amount of effort by some people to learn US geography. For some people, anything from New Mexico seems to be lumped up together. NMSU...UNM... makes no difference to some people.

I just posted it here because I thought we all could enjoy the humor, but apparently this happens for often than I thought, so I could care less if it gets moved.

That is why our state quarter looks like this:

An attempt to educate the rest of the US.

(NM's unimaginative quarter was designed by an engraver and close friend of the moronic Governor at the time.)

Im kidding!!
Im just lol....at some peoples (not necessarily here, but in general) perceptions of different places. NM always seems to be portrayed poorly, as does my area (thinking all of Bakersfield is like Oildale). Some other areas like LA, some think its all like Venice Beach or Beverly Hills.

RE: NMSU Recruit Can't Tell the Difference Between NMSU and UNM
I was in Phoenix this weekend and several relatives are ASU alum. I told them GCU fans consider ASU rivals and they couldn't stop laughing. They basically said GCU is a joke to Arizona State students. To be fair they started talking trash about NMSU and I quickly reminded them how we spanked them in Tempe and how I was with them when even our football team beat a ranked ASU team 35-7. I'll be in Tempe at "the other Phoenix school" to watch football Aggies play the Sun Devil's with my ASU fam and buddies who consider a GCU education the equivalent of a Penn Foster education.
