Sports Speak Up! Tell Rudy the Aggies warrant coverage too

RUDY THE ATTORNEY, like others at UNM, can’t add. You see, there are two (2) Division I football programs in New Mexico and the Albuquerque Journal, distributed statewide, wisely knows that stories about Aggie football is reaching the thousands of Aggies in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and in every other corner of the state. Unlike UNM, NMSU does know how to add, operates within its means and pays back borrowed dollars.

IT IS WITH great sadness to see the upcoming high school football season start without Kevin Carroll on the sidelines at Albuquerque Academy. Not only did he coach football but he also coached life to these young men. Constantly outnumbered and outsized, his teams not only competed with class but also with dignity. His style reflected a time when accountability and character were expected. His coaching didn’t stop after the season nor did his impact on the lives of the many young people he influenced over the length of his career.

THE END OF an era has arrived. UNM Regents have assassinated the Pride Pass, which … let us fans into all of the minor sports events all school year long. At $50 per school year, when combined with men’s soccer, it was the “deal of the century.” The pass is still available, for the same price. Without the benefit of men’s soccer games, I have no interest, though I will support the minor sports and pay by the game. Their tragic mistake will reverberate and haunt UNM for years to come.
