Lobos Coming To Town

Lobos Coming To Town 


Congrats on the beatdown of your crosstown rivals and staying undefeated.

Your top 10 and undefeated Bearcats against my top 15 (after the next poll) and undefeated Lobos is coming up on the 27th.

Can't wait, Cincinnati will be the best team we play all year until NCAA Tourney time.  

Thanks for doing a home and home series with us, something we try hard to set up against quality opponents with very few accepting the offer.

Iron sharpens iron.  Hope it's a great game and that both teams get tested!  Stick around and tell us about your team, I look forward to the discussion.

Your wife is a UNM Alum, nice, my state is lacking in many areas but not when it comes to great food.  Does she miss the fresh green chile and New Mexican cuisine?

We have two awesome hard working Aussie's in our PG Hugh Greenwood and backup post player Cameron Bairstow.

We have two players from New Mexico on the team our starting center Alex Kirk who is a 7 foot redshirt sophomore who can hit the 3 and score down low and block shots while only fouling out of one game. The other is senior forward Chad Adams who played less than ten minutes a game until this season when something in him just clicked and he has finally figured out how to play the game.

Our best player is junior guard Kendall Williams, he plays some point and some two guard, he can slash and hit deep threes. Tony Snell also is a solid guard but too unselfish, he needs to shoot more and be more aggressive.

I was extremely excited for this game and it sucks that the Belk Bowl is on the same day.  Going to be in Charlotte for the game but will be reppin UC at the bars down there.  Should be a great game.

Are you kidding?!?!?!?!  Best Mexican food (or as you say, New Mexico cuisine) I've ever had.  And yes, we have a stockpile of green chile (roasted by her) in the freezer.  Great stuff!  cool

BTW, Drew Gordon went to my kids' HS.

Re: Lobos Coming To Town 


Sounds like a great lady you picked to marry, congrats.  We fill up our freezer every Fall with fresh roasted green chile and use it to flavor up many things from breakfast foods, eggs, potatoes, beans to sandwich, hotdog and brauts topping, usual Mexican favorites and even in a marinara sauce.  

I've seen the Bearcats play in that Las Vegas tournament against Iowa State and a good Oregon team.  I would say your team is more athletic and more physical than the Lobos and the Bearcats are very strong defensively.  

Our team has been clutch all year pulling out many close games.  The Lobos do a good job drawing fouls and have been better than average defensively. 

We fall behind in every game we play, sometimes by double digits and still manage to grind out wins.  We were down by 5 with ten seconds to play against George Mason and hit a 35 foot 3 pointer, stole the inbounds pass and hit a three with 1 second remaining to win by one.

Our best win came in the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament in the Virgin Islands when we beat UConn.

RE: Lobos Coming To Town 


Welcome to the site. Looking forward to this game as well. I'd say about 75% of us will be in Charlotte for the bowl game. Should be a good test for both of our teams. The toughest team we've had this year was probably Alabama.

I haven't done any research on the return game, I'm guessing it's next year. Sounds like a good road trip for me :D

Checking out the schedule the game is on at 9 pm on ESPN2... Maybe we'll catch the 2nd half when we finish up the bowl game. Sounds like a plan!

I didn't realize your bowl game was the same day, couple that with the students not being on campus will probably make for a less than energized crowd from the norm.

I take it that Tuberville will not be coaching your football team until next year and will not be on the sidelines for your bowl game, is that correct?

What bowl is it and who are you playing?

Duke made a bowl game? I have to try and catch some of that just for the novelty of it.  Wasn't it Steve Spurrier who was the last coach to have any success at Duke?

RE: Lobos Coming To Town 


The only reason Duke made the bowl game is because North Carolina and Miami aren't eligible for post season play.

As far as I know Tuberville will not be coaching the bowl game. But you are correct, expect a small crowd for the basketball game.

RE: Lobos Coming To Town 


Speaking about eligibility and NCAA penalties, we have a senior back up point guard in Jamal Fenton who was suspended by the NCAA for the first three games of this season because over the summer he through himself a birthday party at a local hotel and paid $500 for the ballroom that apparently goes for $750.  

Some unnamed local reporter apparently found out that he was having this party and found out how much he paid for the ballroom and told UNM who had to report it to the NCAA.  Jamal had no idea he was getting a discount and most people wouldn't know the going rate for renting out a ballroom.  

That was one of those where the punishment didn't fit the crime sort of things and where the offender didn't even know he was violating a rule.

Anyway, it is strange how North Carolina's basketball program apparently had some serious academic fraud from a few years back and the NCAA is turning their back to that while laying down the hammer on something as innocent as not knowing the market value for renting out a ballroom.

I'll agree the NCAA is not even handed, but you'll have a hard time getting sympathy here.  We once lost a once-in-ten-year local stud recruit to Texas because a longtime family friend lent his mother a couple hundred bucks for school clothes that she paid back almost immediately.  The family friend also had ties to UC, which prompted the whole thing.

The head of the NCAA committee that worked it was...you guessed it, a professor at Texas.

Welcome to the Board, Lobo, but you're KILLING me.  I moved from Colorado to Oregon last year, where green chile is non-existent.  I had to go out of my way have a few bushels sent up to me from ABQ.  In fact, I have a chile stew in the crock pot at home right now.  You nailed most of our favorite ways to use it - the others are in an enchilada casserole and strips on top of a bagel and cream cheese.  UC fans - if you want a super interesting road trip for next year's game at The Pit, spend a few days in New Mexico around the game.  It's a quick drive from ABQ up to Santa Fe, and you can grab a great late night snack after the game at the Frontier.

UNM always place hard-nosed basketball.  I'm very much looking forward to the matchup....

Re: Lobos Coming To Town 


Very good advice on all fronts coloradobuck!  I absolutely love ABQ and Santa Fe and really all of NM...lived there for a summer as a kid when my father did a sabbatical at Sandia Labs.  And as I mentioned, my wife went to UNM and some of her brothers sill live in ABQ.  Already thinkin' about makin' the trip down there for next year's game.  I'd rate The Pit as one of the very best arenas I've ever been in.

Earlier today at work we were talking about 'new' schools for us to recruit at and I was telling my reports we oughta look at UNM for a variety of reasons.  Even said I'd go there to recruit myself!  cool

I think I'm gonna have some fresh green chile on my eggs tomorrow morning.  But I gotta get my wife to prepare 'em.  Along with Skyline, a real family favorite!

Re: Lobos Coming To Town 


I always enjoy visiting Ohio, my wife is from NE Ohio in the Canton/Akron area and we visit her family from time to time.  Even though Cincinnati isn't that close to that area it would have been doable, wish I had thought about making the trip earlier.  Hopefully we will continue the series so I can do that some day.

Schools like UNM are the ones the NCAA likes to make an example of.  When Kenny Thomas played for us he was suspended for an entire semester because of a class he took in high school that wasn't a core college course or something odd like that and although he made up for that in a summer session it wasn't good enough because he was already on scholarship.
