WHY ARE ATHLETES not competing or practicing in New Mexico? The other 49 states are, including California and New York. It’s not perfect, but they are getting it done safely. How can they get it figured out, and the government and health advisors can’t figure it out here in NM? What is wrong with our leaders in Santa Fe? Let them play.
NEW MEXICO’S STATE legislators reportedly want to get in on the decision making process regarding future state public health order directives. That would be a good idea instead of giving one person the ability to dictate questionable moves regarding our state’s economy and unquestionably poor decisions made regarding our state’s university and high school athletic programs, which have affected players, coaches and fans along with cutting into athletic department budgets. Hopefully the topic will be a high priority when the legislative session opens in a matter of days.
YOU CAN MAKE up every excuse in the world and feel sorry for the Lobos because of the out-of-state circumstances. The problem is, you currently have an undisciplined and fundamentally unsound basketball squad. That is why they are 0-6 in the MWC. Remember, the Governor of New Mexico does not coach this team but the results would be significantly better if she did.

LOYALTY IS RECIPROCAL. Why should I care about the Lubbock Lobos?
IT IS, ONCE again, readily apparent that the best college basketball play in NM resides with the Lady Lobos. They are suffering the same overly restrictive and unnecessary restraints as the men’s team but they press on and play hard and win. It is time to stop the agony and take the men’s team off the road and forfeit their remaining games. Our Governor deserves a good part of the blame.

LOVE HOW LOBO honks and Journal writers blame the Guv for 40-point blowouts by Weir’s Wonders. Odd that Lobo Women endure the exact same thing, and they’re what: UNDEFEATED! Strange. Haters have a point tho. We agree the Guv has recruited a rotten roster and we’re not much impressed by her coaching either.
