New Mexico

Q: How much of a sense of urgency around the New Mexico program? What’s the identity going to be on offense?

From Lee Roy Lucero, UNMRedMenace.com … When you finish the past two seasons 1-11, there is for sure a sense of urgency coming from the football program. They have to win, and they have to win now.

The identity of the offense is speed at receiver. Transfer WR Deon Long and Lamaar "Flash" Thomas are eligible this year, and injured wide receivers Martize Barr and Michael Scarlett are healed and healthy. Add freshmen Donnie Duncan and UNM has speed on demand. Also tight end Lucas Reed is a legitimate All-America candidate and he’ll help out.

Last year UNM went through four quarterbacks due to injury. This year Stump Godfrey and Tarean Austin have experience and they should battle it out. Defensively the Lobos D-line was awful, but this year it added some new guys and is experienced.
