Sports Speak Up: UNM in the right about not commenting about certain athletes

FOR ALL the gossips who want to know why players leave, are disciplined etc. and want to blame UNM. Go complain to your Congressmen who passed the HIPPA and Cleary Act. There is Federal legislation that will punish UNM if they say a thing: It is called “privacy.” What will happen if the charges aren’t true or go away? Geez people your tax dollars aren’t an appropriate basis for complaining that you can’t go to the barbershop and gossip. Go Lobos!

ON OCCASION the UNM women’s basketball team has a good 3-point shooting game, but for the most part, they are let’s say, not very good at it. 0 for 18? 6 for 36? You’ve got to be kidding. Maybe, instead of the steady “clank” sound as the team heads toward the rest of conference play, it would be a good idea for Mike Bradbury and his staff to come up with a different offense that minimizes shooting the 3 ball?

KENT STATE, perennially the dregs of the Mid American Conference, beat Utah State (a team UNM couldn’t beat at home in ABQ) 51-41 in the Frisco Bowl for its first ever bowl win. Another reminder, not that Lobo fan needed one, how far UNM football has fallen.

— Allan, ABQ

THE IGNORANCE of the NM “leadership” is so “funny.” … “We need to do this, spend more money, pay for their education” to keep our talent in NM. … And NM’s star high school football player goes to Utah over UNM. … Go figure. … Gotta give the kid credit for smarts. He won’t have to worry about ABQ crime and self-imposed diversity there.


REMINDER: 1,200 attended the final UNM Football senior game this year, NM Bowl attendance was a complete joke. It is glaring obvious that NM does not care. HILARIOUS and SAD when fans (?) think the program/attendance will rebound. Heard that a million times before. It’s very simple, UNM lost the ability to afford a competitive football team decades ago. No amount of money can save the program now and new coach only delays the inevitable.
