Looks like NMSU is getting a new head coach and he's a good one:

I don't know......I'm still numb from losing to URI and Maine. URI: 3rd and 16 and they took it to the house. Maine: Up by 10 and we quit playing and they scored 5 straight TD's. :evil:

Thank God Bell is gone. I honestly thought there was some sort of Grassy Knoll conspiracy to shutter the program. But with Don Brown coming in I think we actually have a chance at being a football team and winning a few games. DB is absolutely perfect: from Mass., ton of experience as HC and P5 coordinator, over 40.

I’m not confident with having to travel across the country to face a team that’s likely going to be fired up to prove they aren’t the worst in the country. Kind of like UMass was pumped against Uconn.

It’s more of a shot at UMass than Brown, saying that he’s gonna coach one of the only teams that’s worse than Arizona

More tongue in cheek shot at Brown and UMass, I chuckled. Ryan McGee is a great writer and mildly hilarious. The bottom 10 is just great content week in and week out. Here’s hoping we are out of there next year! I’m even pulling for UConn to be competitive too, we need some regional juice going again because even with BC having a really good season, no one really gives a crap about that program here in Massachusetts still.
