Sports Speak Up! Suggestions for new Lobos coach Pitino

I CAN’T THINK of anything Richard Pitino could do that would endear himself to Lobo fans more than enticing Makuach Maluach back for one more year. This alone would definitely put fannies in the seats and really excite the fan base.

I HAVE BEEN watching Pitino coach against Wisconsin for several years and here is what I’ve seen. … Pitino is an average recruiter. But more than that: His kids just play playground ball and seem out of control much of the time while the Wisconsin kids run their sets and play as a team. … I’ve got nothing against the guy but you people are putting way too much into this hire.

CONGRATULATIONS TO MLB for moving its All-Star game out of Atlanta. I hope they also move the draft. There is no place in this country for more Jim Crow laws! Jackie Robinson must be smiling from above.

AS NICE AS UNM Stadium is to watch the High School football finals, there was a big surprise: the cost. Tickets could only be bought online, $13 each person, including the service fee. There was no senior or student rate. Then add the $5.00 parking fee. For high school students, that’s expensive. For grandparents, that’s not only sticker shock, but buying tickets online isn’t something they all know how to do.
