Mid-Major Madness Podcast: New Mexico State coach Paul Weir joins, the gang talks about Gonzaga, at-larges, and more

The Aggies are 21-2. Weir tells us why.

NCAA Basketball: New Mexico State at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

New Mexico State is 21-2, hasn’t lost since before Thanksgiving, and has taken down New Mexico and Arizona State in the process.

It’s time we talked about the Aggies.

And what better way to do that than to have their head coach, Paul Weir, on the Mid-Major Madness Podcast?

The first-year coach took over for a team that lost at the buzzer in the WAC championship game last year, then lost its best player to the NBA Draft. So how the heck do they have the longest winning streak in the country, east of Spokane? Weir reveals all his team’s secrets (not really), starting about 41 minutes in, if you want to skip all our nonsense beforehand.

Nonsense beforehand:

  • Is Gonzaga a worthy No. 1? (yes)
  • Is the mid-major at-large landscape as bad as people say? (maybe)
  • Is Derrick Kellogg on the hot seat? (yes)
  • Do we like Monmouth? (duh)
