I GUESS I WAS asleep and missed two things: 1. NMSU moved to Albuquerque and therefore gets headlines over their season? 2. The Albuquerque Journal is now the LC Sun Times? I can only conclude that the wag that wanted to combine NMSU and UNM football now works for the local paper.

OHIO STATE, MICHIGAN and the rest of the Big Ten Conference are feeling left out in football. Why? The ACC and the SEC are the Triple AAA football farm clubs. The Big Ten and the PAC 12 are AA football leagues and the BIG 12 are A ball. All other schools are Rookie League.

WHILE I DO ADMIRE Holly Holm’s competitiveness and fighting spirit, I think the time has come for her to start looking seriously at other careers. There are no doubt a number of hamburger emporiums in Albuquerque that could use some behind-the-counter help. True, it doesn’t pay nearly as much as UCF combat but she’ll have a vastly improved chance of coming home from work each evening with her brain and other faculties unharmed and intact. It’s worth giving it some thought.

WCGB: Wild Card Games Behind; L10: Record in last 10 games; Str: Streak (winning or losing). — Randy, Journal
