Sports Enthusiasts Share Opinions on Pitino and Bradbury’s New Agreement!

This article includes a range of recent achievements by the University of New Mexico (UNM). However, there are a couple of records that need to be verified – meeting records and losses against Air Force and Utah Valley. The writer believes that rewarding mediocrity is typical in today’s world, and this is what readers can expect from this piece. A reader called Mark in Albuque suggests that UNM should check with Minnesota for further information.

The article goes on to discuss the UNM women’s basketball coach, Mike Bradbury, who is expected to stay on as long as he continues to win 20 or more matches each season. Although this is acceptable to many universities, UNM is a top 20-ranked program by attendance, so expectations should be higher. Last season, the senior-heavy team barely finished fourth and didn’t make it past the first round of the conference tournament. They had zero conference tournament wins and NCAA tournament bids. The writer notes that the three-point shooting issues are still evident.

The writer is baffled by the fact that Bradbury’s contract has been extended for another three years, despite the Lady Lobos having zero appearances in the MWC Championship Game. The article moves on to discuss the incorporation of turquoise on uniforms by many UNM teams in recent years. However, the writer is dismayed that this year’s softball uniforms didn’t include this color. The writer questions whether the athletics administrators care about incorporating New Mexico culture into their uniforms or whether it’s just lip service with hashtags like #nmtrue and #wearenewmexico.
