Fans react to Lobos kneeling during anthem

AFTER TONIGHT’S protest, UNM should just as well take the “death
penalty”. With no attendance and no television revenue, there is no way
it can continue the football program. For me, I will not attend a game
or watch them on TV until Davie quits and the current players, who
protested, quit or graduate.
— David Woodward

FIRST COLLEGE FOOTBALL team have players kneel in protest on National TV. Disgraceful! Especially during Military Appreciation Day. Davie needs to take a lesson from Lou Holtz who tells his players to keep there causes at home. We will no longer support Lobo Athletics if this continues.

— Soon to be former Lobo Fan!

COACH DAVIE: I am very disappointed to see you let several of your players take a knee instead of respecting our National Anthem. It is even more upsetting that the Air Force Academy Men stood strong and respected our Anthem and your players just ignored it. Wake up and do the right thing

— E J Vietnam Veteran

IDIOTS: I have lived in New Mexico for almost 50 years, and have supported the Lobos by both attendance and financially. I became a “who ever they are playing” fan at halftime tonight.
