n I AM NOT a Boise St. alumnus or fan in particular but it is so g-d unfair how they are treated in the bowl selection. They are ranked 7th in the final bcs standings and 8th in the national polls and didn’t get selected for any of the major bowls. They ended up being selected for the MAACO bowl against 6-6 Arizona State. That is a crime and they should sue and their needs to be a congressional investigation of this.

♦ NOW THAT Holly Holmes has had a knockout — (HEAD INJURY) in most of the world, do you think the love affair with the “sport” of boxing will continue? There is no other “sport” with a goal of creating an injury — and head injuries are the hardest to repair. We are worried in football, where is the worry in boxing?
♦ I SAW THREE things while attending todays Lady Lobo game vs. the Aggies. (1) A gutsy performance by the the undermanned Lobos. (2) Constant elbows and forearms by the Aggies. (3) Three game officials standing around with stupid looks on their faces.

♦ WHY DID WE not name our local bowl game “The New Mexico Chile Bowl”? Think of the possibilities for tourism and the revenue to the state promoting one of our official state vegetables. “The Gildan New Mexico Chile Bowl” leaves a much better taste in my mouth! Maybe next year we can get the name right!

♦ REGARDING THE LOBOS basketball preseason schedule – only one opponent has been or is currently ranked in the top 40 and that is the University of Saint Louis which is presently ranked number 31 (AP). The Lobos play the Billikens on December 31st. Time will tell if they are still ranked in the top 40 on New Year’s Eve. Looks like it will be a NIT-ing we’ll be a goin’ (again)

♦ THE ONLY team to beat Alabama was the number one ranked team in the nation. No one can argue that Alabama out played them on the field, just came up short on the score board. The only team that beat OSU was ranked what?
