I think the NMSU head football coaching position is not an easy job and Martin has done a good job with what he has to work with. According to USA today, his base salary was $419,000 and his coaching staff was making a total of about $862,000. Both numbers are among the lowest in FBS football.

Considering the resources available, Martin has done a good job. He got the team to a bowl game, a bowl win and a winning record. How many head football coaches over the past 50+ years at NMSU can say the same? I think the level of talent is starting to slowly improve, with players like Larry Rose, Jaleel Scott and Terrill Hanks.

This year's recruiting class was pretty good. The got a good cornerback out of Arizona, a three star QB and three star offensive lineman out of Southern California. I think they should spend more time recruiting Southern California. Obviously, Texas is a state that is loaded with talent and Martin and his staff must spend a lot of time and energy there, but it also has a lot of college football schools:

Texas
FBS Schools -12
FCS Schools - 8
D2 Schools - 7

California
FBS schools -7
FCS Schools - 4
D2 Schools - 1

There is D1 talent in Southern California that ends up in Big Sky schools or California community colleges. Idaho grabbed a couple of three star kids out of Los Angeles that could easily have ended up at NMSU. It will cost more money, but recruiting Southern California could pay off. Martin needs to make NMSU a D1 FBS alternative to players that are kind of flying under the Pac-12/MWC radar in Southern California.


NMSU has a solid incoming recruiting class. We're also getting a four-star RB who is transferring over from Michigan.

The 4* has some baggage coming with him but we do tend to do well with second chances (Coach Jans). We did get 9 3* recruits this year, many of them coming on defense which we need. Sadly defensive coordinator Coach Spaziani didn't do well. Hell the whole 2018 team didn't do well due to departures and injuries. For this upcoming season I would not mind a 3-9 year as long as we win the first two games and beat UNM.

Uhm. . . If we win the first two, 03-cloud9 I would see a 3 and 9 record as a big letdown!

Do you really think NMSU could even split the 2 games vs WSU and Bama? Both schools went 25-3 combined last year. I think the travel to Pullman from LC will be a lot on top of the talent WSU has. Bama well its Bama.

That's my main point. If we manage to beat those teams, then the football gods are on our side. I would only ask for another win against UNM. Doubt the money game wins will happen but one can dream.
