Bob Davie said he didn’t want to write the news media’s stories for them, but he kind of did — or, at least, contributed the theme:
“One thing that’s really affected our team this year that’s been different for us is the turnover margin,” Davie said during his weekly Tuesday news conference. “I hate to bring up a negative statistic and kind of write your story for you, but we’re about 104th in turnover margin right now out of 129 teams.”
Davie is being just a little too hard on his Lobos (3-4 overall, 1-3 in Mountain West Conference play). In fact, UNM ranks 103rd nationally in turnover margin at minus-five. The Lobos rank 10th in the Mountain West.
