Question: This (Lubbock, Texas) is a place where New Mexico rarely wins. Does it seems like things are stacked against you?

Sidney Wiley: I know the fans will get on you and call you anything in the book but coach (Long) warned us about it and that stuff doesn't bother me. It's going to go in one ear and out the other.

Question: Is it a challenge knowing they (Texas Tech) are going to come out and throw at you a bunch?

SW: I know the ball is going to be thrown a lot, but as long as we do our job and help the team, we can come out with a victory.

Question: Do you feel they tried to run up the score on you last year?

SW: Yeah, I think they tried to run it up on us. This year, I think we are better prepared and our defense is better, so they won't be able to score as much.
