Well, the plucky mid-major program at New Mexico State - familiar to readers of TOC as that band of humble, hard-working over-achievers who nearly toppled the cash-bloated, complacent, me-first under-achievers of Michigan State but for an officiating conspiracy - has hit a bump in the road. Again. Jahmar Young, who endeared himself to the nation by complaining bitterly about the officials' shutting down his trash-talking during the tournament game, is in trouble with the law. Again. This has the unfortunate potential to derail the Jahmar Young NBA draft express. You knew he had declared early for the draft, right? This ESPN article mentions a number of other presumably trumped-up incidents that have led local sportswriters, who are probably in the pocket of the major conferences, to brand the program as "renegade" and lacking in discipline. Don't be fooled. The NMSU athletic department budget of about $17M, one-fifth that of soulless sports machine Michigan State, is sufficient proof of the greater virtues of this unfairly persecuted basketball program.
