New Mexico hasn't exactly been a stable of CFF value in... well, forever. But two new coaches joined the program this offseason that you'll want to know about.
They don’t see me coming.

Welcome back to VP. I trust that you all reveled in the holiday spirit, wholeheartedly subscribing to the voluminous philosophy that ‘more is always merrier’ when it comes to spreading festive cheer.
Myself, I had a relaxing holiday. I spent some time thinking about the big picture for VP, and where I would like to take things in year two. Some exciting ideas were pondered over a fire and a glass of whiskey, but I’m not sure what’s achievable yet, so I won’t speak to them now.
As for today’s business, whenever you have a large group of people who subscribe to something, I imagine the reasons for why they subscribe vary quite a bit per individual. However, one reason I’m certain many subscribe to VolumePigs is for information potentially pointing to hidden pigs.
So in this article, we’re going to explore a program nobody really thinks about— the New Mexico Lobos. Not really a sexy program in any way, even for a CFB sicko. However, any CFF analyst worth his salt leaves no stone unturned in his research, so here we are.
In our case, there is actually reason to believe that there will be significant delta to be had here. To explain why, I will need to do a deep dive into the new coaching staff.
