Sports Speak Up! Readers comment on crumbling Lobo women’s team

WHAT IS WRONG with Lady Lobos Basketball team?!
— MS

THE UNM WOMEN’S basketball team took a trip to Italy this summer and to Cancun, Mexico a few weeks ago. Such trips are usually set up for the players to “bond.” Unfortunately, this Lobo team is coming apart at the seams. Something doesn’t add up here with two players redshirting for a year and then up and quitting after taking those trips and with only a 3 month commitment left before their college careers would have ended. Very disappointing for all the fans who thought UNM would contend for a Mountain West Conference Championship.

ONE CAN ONLY hope that the search for a new head football coach will be someone with a proven record of recruiting four and five star athletes. Of the two candidates mentioned in Saturday’s Journal, who have they recruited? If they have no record of recruiting they should not be candidates or sadly the football program will continue to be stuck in a tradition of losing.

UNM IS SPENDING $50,000 to a firm to help find a head football coach. Why not be old fashioned and use the KISS (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID) method? 1. Advertise the position with criteria in all the right sources. 2. Establish your interview committee with a rating scale based on criteria. 3. Screen submitted applications. 4. Select a certain number of applicants to interview. 5. Hire applicant chosen by committee. Done. Save $50K.
