Sports Speak Up! On the dismal UNM football outlook and LeBron James

THERE REALLY IS no answer for UNM regarding Lobo football. UNM needs to field a team to keep the revenue flowing with Mountain West Conference money that helps to fund all sports. Bob Davie has ‘zero’ concern about his job security because he makes about $800,000 per year and has a contract that runs through 2021. An inexperienced assistant interim coach won’t do any better. It usually takes a new coach at least three seasons to rebuild. As the losses continue to pile up, all Lobo fans can do is stand in-place as a group of defenseless punching bags.

So be fiscally responsible and create some early buzz by giving a local guy a shot. At 2-10, what does the institution have to lose?
