Game Recap: Aztecs faceplant in Laramie

The San Diego State men’s basketball team held a three-point lead heading into halftime on Wednesday night in Wyoming. Not great, but what we’d seen early on looked pretty encouraging. The Aztecs had survived a barrage of early 3s and were dominating the glass.  If things kept going like they were going, it was easy to see how this could turn into a blowout in the second half.

And … well … it did turn into a blowout. I was technically not wrong, folks!

Holy hell.

SDSU followed its epic Gonzaga win and opened Mountain West Conference play by slipping on fresh road apple and falling face-first into a cow patty. Or as they call it in Laramie, Wyo., “enjoying the local nightlife.”

SDSU lost 82-69 to the Cowboys, thanks to some insanely-hot shooting by the new top-vote getter on our Most Despised Player list (more on him later). Another culprit was the 7,200-foot elevation that made the Aztecs look like they were playing defense and rebounding while wearing a diving bell at the bottom of the sea.

Say, see if you can spot where things started to go wrong. Look closely now, it’s subtle.

The Mountain West must do whatever it takes to keep its champion from a bowl matchup with a losing team (UPDATED)

Craig Thompson is kind of an easy target for lazy, pot-shot-loving bloggers like me. As Mountain West commissioner, he’s given us lots of ammunition; from the sad TV deal to the evisceration of the conference via expansion (and back-filling with San Jose State) to the fact that two Mountain West teams faced each other in a bowl game streamed online last year.

All that said, he probably gets a bad rap overall. Thompson can only play the hand he’s been dealt and, for the last several years of his tenure, that hand has included two Garbage Pail Kids and a Starbucks gift card with $1.75 left on it.

However there is something brewing that, if it comes to pass, we should all rightfully roast him for.

Kindly eat shit, (Opponent)

Aztecs football season starts this week, and it’s time to start working ourselves up! It’s easier when you hate your opponent, right? We here at Kabeer Thirty love nothing more than to give a quick (figurative) kick to the junk followed by a tearful sprint in the opposite direction, but there’s a lot of hatred in this world. How about we try a different approach this season? Let’s systematically kill them with kindness!

A benevolent breakdown of SDSU’s 2016 foes:
