BOISE STATE basketball coach Leon Rice has concocted a conspiracy idea that UNM directors purposely planted the UNM baseball workforce outdoors of the Broncos’ locker room to harass his workforce earlier than the second half started and needs the MWC to handle the scenario? Perhaps he’ll go forward and have the BSU soccer workforce line as much as try and intimidate UNM for the return match in Boise? I don’t assume it might hassle this Lobo workforce. Higher but, how concerning the two fan bases crossing paths in Las Vegas for the MWC match championship recreation?

WHILE NO ONE may begrudge Alford for leaving UNM for UCLA, he may at the very least waited for the ink to dry on this his UNM contract extension earlier than doing so. We beloved him in Albuquerque however now he’s public enemy #1. Nevada is quickly supplanting SDSU as our most despised rival. We now have to beat them in Albuquerque Feb. 7.

I’VE BEEN ON this planet for almost 70 years now, I’ve seen quite a lot of faculty basketball however I’ve by no means, ever seen a recreation as poorly officiated because the Lobos vs Nevada. The officers appeared to have swallowed their whistles as they allowed apparent push-off, over the again, hacking and different bodily fouls on each groups. They didn’t even handle to blow a whistle however nonetheless known as a final ludicrous “flagrant” foul after watching a replay which mainly determined the sport.
I’M DISAPPOINTED that former Rockies first baseman Todd Helton fell 11 votes in need of being elected to the MLB Corridor of Fame.
