You Stay Classy, San Diego.....State

One can only imagine what the coverage would be like if Ron Burgandy and the Channel 4 News Team were covering this year's San Diego State basketball team.  San Diego State? Why do we care about San Diego State.
I'm sure these guys would be enjoying SDSU's early season success (Anchorman)
Well, mixed in with the 5 Big East teams and the normal Duke, Ohio State and Kansas, San Diego State is sitting comfortably in the Top the country. They are ranked 7th. Pretty impressive for a Mountain West Conference team. In fact, I'm not even mad, that's amazing.

The Aztecs best win of the season was game #2, when they beat then 12th ranked Gonzaga by 3.  The rest of their wins have been a grab bag of victories over the likes of IUPUI, St. Mary's, San Francisco, etc.

Once the New Year hits, we'll start to learn just how classy the Aztecs really are, as in their first 6 games of January are matchups with Utah, UNLV (who just beat a short-handed Kansas State team), and the BYU Jimmers (for preseason All-American Jimmer Fredette).

What we do know about San Diego State is that they are well coached. Steve Fisher, the same Fisher that won a National Championship at Michigan in 1989, has had the Aztecs in the tournament three times during his tenure. Getting back to the field of 68 (that sounds weird) will be tough though. From the Mountain West Conference, there are four teams (SDSU, BYU, New Mexico and UNLV) that are receiving votes in the polls this week. Notice to all the BCS conference teams....beware of the Mountain Westers that might burst your bubble.

But March is a ways away, so in the meantime, let's just enjoy the Aztecs for now, and tune into Champ Kind's sports report on Channel 4 each night....whammmmmy.
