April, according to T.S. Elliot’s poem The Waste Land, is the cruelest month.
I guess T.S. didn’t check out Air Force’s October slate.
At archrival Navy, home against No. 11 TCU and a better-than-expected Wyoming, then back on the road to face defending league champ Utah and rapidly improving Colorado State.
Wow. Like I wrote after last Saturday’s victory over San Diego State, we’ll know a lot more about this team after this month.
Not that November’s any bargain. The Falcons play host to Army (which finally seems to have found the right fit at coach in Rich Ellerson) and what probably will be a desperate UNLV squad. And then they finish on the road at No. 20 BYU.
I took a look at the upcoming schedule, Tim Jefferson’s status and Reggie Rembert’s awards for his play against San Diego State in my notebook that appears in today’s edition of The Gazette.
Also, in addition to starting 0-4 and losing to New Mexico State, I’d add “head coach grabbing assistant coach and punching him” to the list of signs that it’s going to be a long season at New Mexico. Any time you read a story about a team and think, “Didn’t that happen in Oakland with the Raiders?” it’s not a good thing.
