TOO MUCH ATTENTION for New Mexico United. This is still Lobo Town. Danny Gonzales has his work cut out for him. The opener vs. Houston Baptist aside, I guess we’ll know how much support the football program is going to receive on Sept. 11 when UNM plays NMSU at University Stadium. If 60,000 people can watch a Zozobra puppet burn in Santa Fe on September 3, would it be asking too much to get a 39,224 sell-out crowd to the stadium for a college football rivalry game in Albuquerque?

SIMONE “TAKE ME OUT, Coach” Biles can now be added to the rather impressive list of biggest chokers in sports history: Greg Norman (1996 Masters), Scott “Wide Right” Norwood (Super Bowl XXV), Bill Buckner (1986 World Series) and of course Roberto “No Mas” Duran vs Sugar Ray Leonard. With her meltdown, Simone becomes the first woman near the top of the list…
