Sport expresses itself! Current Lobo Football Players Impress ‘Old Jock’
TO OUR MONTHLY Lunching Old Jocks at a local New Mexican restaurant this week, we had the pleasure of meeting several current Lobo football players. The players took the time to introduce themselves to us and couldn’t have been more engaging, friendly and respectful. Some restaurant staff expressed similar sentiments. AD Nunez was just having lunch with us and was able to witness this first hand. These young men are great ambassadors for UNM and have made us very proud. Kick-off can’t come soon enough!
HAPPY TO SEE YOU AGAIN, Dave Pilipovich – moving from Paul Weir’s staff to now Richard Pitino’s special assistant coach. Of course, Pitino should have kept you on the coaching staff last season because of your extensive experience coaching in the Air Force’s Mountain West Conference. I hope you can provide Pitino with information about opponents and even travel logistics issues, among other tasks. Most important, though, is making sure the iconic cherry blazer is dry-cleaned and ready for Richard before the UNM game against Iona, when his dad Rick comes to town on Dece. 18.

IN PROTEST Brittney Griner’s situation (not to mention Ukraine), the WNBA should suspend any player who travels to Russia in the offseason to play.
