The Line: UNM Athletics Back in the News

1308 Line UNM Club Sports

August 23, 2019 – Two interesting announcements about New Mexico’s flagship university came in the news this week. A grand jury indicted former UNM Athletic Director Paul Krebs on seven felony counts in connection with a 2015 golf trip to Scotland, paid for in part with public money. And an article in the Daily Lobo announced the return of men’s soccer and men’s and women’s ski teams to UNM – but only as club sports. Gene Grant and The Line opinion panel tackle both issues concerning athletics at UNM.

Line Panelists:
Adrian Carver, executive director, Equality New Mexico
Dede Feldman, former state senator
Dan Foley, former state representative
H. Diane Snyder, former state senator

June 7, 2019 – Crime is a problem around Albuquerque. It’s a problem around the University of New Mexico campus, too.  But is putting a fence around UNM the answer? Initial reactions, at least in the court of popular opinion, seem to be negative. But parents of current and future students want university officials to do something substantial to make the campus safe.  Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelist debate the best way to address UNM’s safety issues.

Line Panelists:
Eric Griego, former NM state senator
Kristelle Siarza, CEO, Siarza Social Digital
Diane Snyder, former NM state senator
Harry Van Buren, professor in the UNM Anderson School of Management
