SOME NMSU FANS are chirping now that their football team is going to a bowl game for the first time in 57 years. The team is getting a good amount of national media coverage. The problem is half of the fans in America don’t know the difference between New Mexico State and New Mexico. In this case, I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing for us UNM fans. What would definitely be a bad thing, however, is if on Sept. 15, 2018, (the Lobos) lose to the Aggies for the 3rd consecutive time.

DESPITE BEING an absolute diehard Lobo fan, I have to tip my hat, reluctantly, to what the NMSU Aggies are doing this year. Doug Martin has his Aggies in the upcoming Arizona Bowl, and Chris Jans has pieced together a very strong basketball team, currently at 10-3, having knocked off previously number 6th ranked and unbeaten Miami, and very nearly beating a strong USC team at the Hawaii Diamondhead Classic. Throw in a win against Big 10, Illinois. I predict they will sail through the WAC and into the NCAA (Tournament).

LOOKING AT THE hundreds of names on the pro football injury list that was in the Journal recently, I can’t imagine any other business with that many injuries that wouldn’t have OSHA camped in their facilities to figure out better ways to protect the workers.
HEY MO, Not An Attorney: So Bob Davie signs/recruits JC football players to shore up needs, none from New Mexico as you say. Uh, not to make you look ignorant, but, just how many D-1 ready football players do you think there are that are native New Mexicans in the JC ranks? … I find it amazing that Randy OKs these types of intelligence-challenged letters to be printed on the paper. How embarrassing.
If we’ve got space, they don’t libel anybody, don’t assert opinions as facts, and keep it clean, we let folks have their say. — Randy, Journal
I AM NOT attending another San Diego State University football game until coach Rocky Long stops recruiting and signing New Mexico athletes!
