ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — I don’t know jf these three media entities — the Orlando Sentinel, USA Today and Athlon Magazine — share information, or whether they just watch each other closely. In any case, all three see the 2104 University of New Mexico in the same, fairly harsh light.
Athlon ranks the Lobos 106th (of 128 NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision teams). Previously, the Sentinel ranked UNM 105th, USA Today 110th.
Those rankings seem fair, considering the Lobos’ 3-9 record last year, their defensive struggles and a relatively tough 2014 schedule.
Still, I’ve heard there’s a reason they play the games.
