Sports Speak Up! More pros, cons on Lobo football

DAVIE ACCEPTED the blame, admitting truthfully the entire “tab” is on his account. AD Nuñez, you know DreamStyle Stadium is empty and will soon be condemned. It is unsafe for UNM fans to venture there. 3-9/3-9 and soon 2-10 features the worst passing defense in Division I. Job security is none of his concern. UNM make Davie pay his bill and move on. Our student-athletes are not to blame for weekly lack of preparation. Bite the bullet now. Let the interim head coach finish the season. This product is repugnant. Cash him out!

IF UNM SHOULD axe Coach Davie, who in college football will be blowing up AD Nuñez with interest in a job that practically requires car washes, bake sales, corn-hole tourneys, and golf tourneys to raise funds to operate a D-1 football program? The program is performing proportionate to the financial and community support it gets. Wins are not what sell tickets here otherwise there’d been 35k/ game in 2015 & 2016. Ranked near the bottom of MWC in financial support & expect championship program is insanity!

SAME OLD LOBOS. Same old Cowboys.

SEEMS THAT THE headhunters are out in force calling for the cranium of Coach Davie with some reminiscing of the days of Rocky Long and his 64-69 W-L record complete with that minor bowl record of 1-4. It’s probably now when I try to remind people that our Lobos will improve when more talent chooses to come here. You people don’t show up to the games but you complain about the team and the coach and that noise never adds to the appearance of stability for potential recruits.

GOOD TO SEE former Lobo P.R. “Porky” Leyva’s grandson Carlsbad Cavemen quarterback Jonah Leyva get some recognition by being the New Mexico Man for the Colorado State game. What a great story to have a player on the Lobo roster (whose) granddad was an outstanding player for the Lobos back in the 1950s. Jonah’s dad also played for the Lobo’s for a short period in the late 70s.

MAKUACH MALUACH —ya gotta love him! Humble man who plays his heart out. No hot dogging from him. Coming from the South Sudan, you know his life had to be anything but easy. It’s been a pleasure to watch him develop over his 4 years at UNM and, and with these next two years, he‘s on track to do that, something that you just don’t see with the JC transfers.

ROCKY TOP is now the most recognizable school fight song. Rocky Top was written by the brother & sister song writing team from Georgia, the Bryants. The Bryants, who wrote many of the Everly Brothers’ top hits, used to lock themselves in a motel room in Gatlinburg, Tennessee to finish their songs.
