Sports Speak Up! An idea to bring the Lobos home

LOBO BASKETBALL has a facility that they could “bubble” in: the Pit. Convert the suites into “dorms” & use the rest of the facility to operate. There’s kitchens for cooking or I’m sure local restaurants would love to cater or provide takeout. The only added expenses would be drapery to provide privacy for each Suite “dorm”, the beds, and 24/7 security to prevent any bubble-busting. They could “House” both Men’s and Women’s programs at a fraction of the cost and they should be able to use United’s “medical” clause to practice in between games & keep MLG happy.

I AM SOOO looking forward to Lobo baseball this year, America’s sport! After missing most of the 2020 season due to Covid-19 lets hope the 2021 season kicks off in fine fashion so I can again attend every home game with my Lobo Pride Pass. Go Lobos!

COACH WEIR: Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy! Starters playing for themselves and not the team and you got outcoached again! All that talent on paper… disappointing.

YES, IT HAS been an unusual year, in sports as elsewhere: but South Carolina (2-8), Mississippi State (3-7) and Arkansas (3-7) in bowl games? Come on! It may not be long before the only requirement for appearing in a Bowl game is an intention to play during the regular season.

South Carolina opted out of the Gasparilla Bowl against UAB due to positive COVID-19 tests, and the game was canceled on Tuesday. — Randy, Journal

UNLESS YOUR TEAM is in the CFP, or some other bowl game that pays lots of money, it makes no sense to play in a “minor” bowl. Few fans will travel in the current environment, and who is to say that game won’t be canceled days, or even hours, before kickoff because of COVID-19 protocols? Of course, if you think the virus is a “Chinese hoax” then you will think differently and will be happy to jump on a plane and mix it up with thousands of other, largely “maskless”, people in a crowded stadium.
