Jason Groves of the Las Cruces Sun-News reports that Dr. Boston is still committed to NMSU even as Dr. Martin, a close friend and one of the main people responsible for bringing Dr. Boston to Las Cruces, heads to LSU. This talk has been brought about by the fact that LSU is currently without an Athletics Director. Just as LSU is a fantastic opportunity for Dr. Martin, you couldn't blame Dr. Boston being at the very least interested in the AD position at LSU. However, it's nice to hear that Dr. Boston remains committed to NMSU. We'll have more with Dr. Boston in our monthly interview with him which will run on Friday.
In case you haven't been keeping up with the regional round of the College World Series, the WAC's only participant, Fresno State, won the Long Beach Regional. Easily the surprise of the Regional rounds. The Bulldogs were the only unranked team in the Long Beach Regional, they had lost to the three teams participating in the regional (host Long Beach State, San Diego and Cal) during the regular season going 1-5 against the three teams with their lone win being against Long Beach State in Fresno. The Bulldogs are headed to Tempe this coming weekend to face Arizona State in the Super Regionals. For complete coverage of the College World Series visit our friends at The College Baseball Blog.
