APS COACHES Are the first to arrive and the last to leave in each APS high school. APS coaches demand grade checks and ride failing athletes. What other APS educator does this? APS coaches know athletes’ parents through booster clubs that cover fees that APS refuses to pay. Superintendent Scott Elder, as a former Louie the Lobo, knows well the power of student athletics in achieving a high school education. Yet APS coaches haven’t had a raise for the past 15 years? Why are dedicated APS coaches paid half of what other NM high school coaches earn?
FEB. 2022 : To think about a connection between CSU basketball trips to Albuquerque accompanied by that bad four-letter word – snow.
THANK YOU Mountain West Conference for not scheduling Nevada for a return trip to Albuquerque and not including the UNM-San Diego State game in the revised catch-up schedule. Those two games would have been the two highest-attended conference games on the Lobos’ schedule this season. Instead, UNM only played one MWC game in the first two weeks of February. It’s up to the UNM administrators to push back against the MWC on behalf of the university’s and Lobo’s fans. Did they ask commissioner Craig Thompson for an explanation of the shortfall? Or do they dare not question his authority?
