WHAT PART of a lack of funding, Title IX compliance and affiliation with the Mountain West Conference don’t our legislators understand? How many more times do UNM President Garnett Stokes and Athletic Director Eddie Nuñez have to prepare to be grilled on the issue?

SOUTH OF the border – Triple Bogey!! Professional golfer Matt Kuchar collected $1,260,000 for winning a Mexican tournament, paid his Mexican caddie $5,000 … That’s the equivalent of tipping a wait person 98 cents on a $250 tab. After much criticism he relented and paid the caddie $50,000, which is 3.9% (Whaup !!). Typically for a win, the caddie receives 5-10% of winnings (Dollars not Pesos).
