Early Predictions for 2009: New Mexico Lobos

JeremySenior Writer IFebruary 17, 2009

The 2009 New Mexico Lobos will be an interesting team. They lost running back Rodney Ferguson, but they get back quarterback Donovan Porterie, who missed the majority of the season with a neck injury.

The new coaching staff brings in new change, but the season comes down to how good Donovan Porterie can be.

Texas A&M The Aggies had a top 25 recruiting class, but they need to replace their starting QB from last year.

Tulsa They also need a new QB but their offense is very, very good.

New Mexico State A theme is occurring for the first three games for the Lobos.  This Aggie team must replace stud quarterback Chase Holbrook.

Texas Tech They do lose QB Graham Harrell and WR Michael Crabtree, but Tech should still be able to put up points.

Air Force The Lobos secondary will get a breather against run-heavy Air Force, but an experienced QB will run their option.

BYU Last year New Mexico figured out BYU, and with an experienced quarterback, New Mexico might have a chance.

UNLV The Rebels offense will have to replace running back Frank Summers and their top two receivers, but they have experience under center in Omar Clayton.

Colorado State Steve Fairchild will try to keep the team running high after losing their top two backs.

San Diego State QB Ryan Lindley is in place, but will anyone else on the team show up?

TCU Their defense will be too much for any team.

Utah Defense is still there, but the offense will take a dip.

Wyoming Can Wyoming find a quarterback and replace their running backs?
