I GUESS deep down inside we all knew that 1 minute and 11 seconds was too much time still left on the clock. Three consecutive passes and UNM gift-wrapped 8 points and a probable upcoming bowl game for UNLV this holiday season. It’s only fitting that a coach run off by UNM, Rocky Long, will put a pitchfork in this forgettable season on Friday afternoon in San Diego.

OUTPLAYED, outhustled and outcoached. Other than that, UNM and The Traitor did well against the Aggies Friday night.

MAYBE A LITTLE less running the pit stairs. Maybe a little more work on the basic fundamentals.
REGARDING “Run and Stun:” The Lobos ran against NMSU and tired themselves out with their minimally effective press. The only ones stunned were Lobo fans once again watching one of their teams get drilled by the Aggies. Unacceptable, as the dwindling attendance numbers continue to show for the major revenue producing sports.

THE FINAL BLOW dealt by Paul Krebs to UNM was hiring an inexperienced coach from our big rival, and of course, they beat the heck out of us. Paul Krebs was the worst thing to happen to UNM athletics in the last 25 years.
