I think there's a real argument to playing New Mexico


With the efficiency metric, two blowouts will help the NET possibly more than two close games, even wins, at Nevada. Look at how many Louisville dropped over the weekend by losing by 40. And that was to a good team. They dropped by more than 20. If CSU had a bad day against Nevada it could really hurt the numbers. But blowing out New Mexico twice, even though they suck, could firmly put CSU in the top 40.

The MW only one time has not had its regular season champion get into the tourney. Obviously an easier path there with New Mexico.

Seeding in the MW tourney regardless. According to that, San Diego State isn't making up anything. UNLV would hurt the resume, huh, ok, and New Mexico will likely be a forfeit. That doesn't help their NCAA resume but gives them better seeding for the MW tourney. That seems fair.

Home games. Right now CSU has had a tougher road for sure. In some ways they deserve to finish the season with New Mexico and Air Force at home.

I would not be surprised, especially with conference title implications, if the other ADs throw a fit over such a move. And the upside to Nevada is much greater with wins, but the downside is pretty much all in that series.

There are no easy answers in this season, but in a fan biased way, CSU deserves to get New Mexico and kick the snot out of them.
