Honestly I am not surprised about this. Congrats to GCU. NMSU needed more game experience but that is an excuse. GCU game out thirsty, and we couldn't compensate.

Thanks! Glad I came here to look. Was only listening to the radio before this. Much appreciated.

Thanks for joining us! I stream most Aggie games so if GCU is playing NMSU that link will always be live.
Great to know. Thanks again.

I'm sure they watched and wondered what could have been had they been able to keep playing. They had already beat one team in the final, and squandered a win against the CHAMPS in the waining minutes, only to lose by 3. Those "umpteenth" days are over, man. Hate to break it to ya...again.

Maybe. The same thing was said after Cal State Bakersfield beat us in the Championship 6 years ago. Then NMSU reeled off four straight NCAA appearances; it would have been five if not for COVID cancelling the 2019-20 tournament. Right now, this season is a blip. If GCU does it again, then it can be considered the start of a trend. Let's have a normal non-virus marred season first before we proclaim NMSU's demise.

GCU invests 4 times as much into their program than CSUB ever has. GCU has a coach that knows what he is doing as a HC. NMSU thinking they will be back next year in the WAC finals is interesting because SFA ACU SHST are showing up and will have some say in the matter along with GCU. So now instead of 1 school to get through there will be 4 to 5 schools on an average to get through and this goes for all the programs ppl view at the top of the WAC next year. The biggest adjustment the TX4 will have next year will traveling to Vegas instead of Katy for the league tournament.


This league will be dominated by a lot of purple I think (GCU-SFA-ACU-TSU). #FearThePurple lol

I concur. 04-cheers

No way in Hades Tarleton is gonna just sit back and watch ACU, or even SFA, gain superiority in MBB, or any other sport for that matter. Us all being in the WAC will set off a recruiting arms race for Texas talent, and a surge in "one-ups" in facility upgrades. The rise in competition will only make us better, and stronger as a conference.

Maybe again. Keep in mind, NMSU has been through this rodeo before. NMSU did play in a WAC that had Nevada, Utah State, Boise State, Hawaii, Fresno State, Louisiana State, etc. And they were still top tier winning multiple WAC Tournament Championships. NMSU will adjust to the competition and keep moving forward. This season was a blip in a COVID marred year. We can further this discussion once GCU wins multiple Championships or if the Texas 4 rock the WAC tournament.

GCU is deserving of this Championship. They recruited the right guys and weathered the COVID storm better than the rest of the WAC. If this happens again next season with no player/team development stoppages in what should be a "normal" basketball year, then I will concede the mantle of top dog has changed hands.

I think this is the part people forget. NMSU didn't just all of a sudden start beating up on the new WAC teams. We were at the top of the old WAC with teams that currently compromise the MWC. And before that, we were winning conference titles and getting to sweet sixteens in the old Big West with UNLV when they were winning national championships. And before that...

RE: 3rd time the charm?
Now, do I think NMSU will dominate the WAC too the level that it has the last 8-9 years, probably not. But I think NMSU will win the WAC Tournament championship just enough to be the program most feared to meet in the conference tournament. This season's WAC tournament (again) when through NMSU. However, GCU was up to the task this season due the addition of Midtgaard. He changed the way NMSU had to defend this GCU team; the only player NMSU had to double team leaving GCU shooters open while he cleaned up (rebounding) the misses.

Now that Jans has an understanding of WAC personnel, he will recruit with that in mind in the next recruiting class; by either finding more prolific scorers or the size to negate some WAC teams size. NMSU was able to sink down on Aimaq because they did not have the perimeter shooter to make NMSU pay. You can bet Madsen will be looking to sign better perimeter shooters for next season. Or, work on three point shooting with the players he currently has on the roster. And on it goes with each coach in the off-season. but I digest.

Back to my point, NMSU will adjust to the increase in talent shift next season. NMSU has a winning reputation, a great coach, nice facilities, and a strong fans support. Of course GCU has a lot of the same things and more money, but they are at the dawn of their winning tradition. NMSU is at high noon. and NMSU has an recruiting/enrollment processing conducive for signing good players which is better than most in the WAC. We will see if this was a blimp or trend in the coming years.

I never said is was bad but NMSU and their fans treat it as a dirty secret that they don't want to really ever talk about. I have never understood this, use it if it works. NMSU and a few others are the only ones that do it. It's not illegal but I know for a fact NMSU HC's and their staffs aren't always morally/ethical in how they prop kids.

But I think NMSU will win the WAC Tournament championship just enough to be the program most feared to meet in the conference tournament. This season's WAC tournament (again) when through NMSU. However, GCU was up to the task this season due the addition of Midtgaard. He changed the way NMSU had to defend this GCU team; the only player NMSU had to double team leaving GCU shooters open while he cleaned up (rebounding) the misses.

Now that Jans has an understanding of WAC personnel, he will recruit with that in mind in the next recruiting class; by either finding more prolific scorers or the size to negate some WAC teams size. NMSU was able to sink down on Aimaq because they did not have the perimeter shooter to make NMSU pay. You can bet Madsen will be looking to sign better perimeter shooters for next season. Or, work on three point shooting with the players he currently has on the roster. And on it goes with each coach in the off-season. but I digest.

Back to my point, NMSU will adjust to the increase in talent shift next season. NMSU has a winning reputation, a great coach, nice facilities, and a strong fans support. Of course GCU has a lot of the same things and more money, but they are at the dawn of their winning tradition. NMSU is at high noon. and NMSU has an recruiting/enrollment processing conducive for signing good players which is better than most in the WAC. We will see if this was a blimp or trend in the coming years.

Propping kids* NMSU is one of a few schools that can/will do this.

For profit university* GCU is one of a few schools that can/will do this.

I never said is was bad but NMSU and their fans treat it as a dirty secret that they don't want to really ever talk about. I have never understood this, use it if it works. NMSU and a few others are the only ones that do it. It's not illegal but I know for a fact NMSU HC's and their staffs aren't always morally/ethical in how they prop kids.

What are you talking about? We proudly tout the Dona Ana Community College and the Prop 48 kids we get. No one is hiding anything. You are making stuff up. And for the record, we get very few Prop kids. Some folks, especially loobs, falsely claim that our entire roster is made up of Prop 48 kids. In fact, I don't know if Jans has even had one yet.

I think it is a great tool and I see nothing wrong with it. What is the difference between a Prop 48 kid and one that doesn't qualify and goes the juco route? I see no difference. Quit making stuff up.
