NM Lobos fall 66-14 at Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — This was supposed to be a game that marked the return of a former Notre Dame head coach, Bob Davie, to South Bend in the first college football meeting of the New Mexico Lobos and the Fighting Irish.

Instead as he recovers from illness, Davie didn’t make it to the game, a 66-14 Lobos loss that left them — and him — with several questions:

■ Is there an answer at quarterback?
■ What is the 1-1 Lobos’ offensive identity?
■ Is there any solution for a faltering defense?

The No. 7-ranked Fighting Irish squad (2-0) showed few weaknesses after the first quarter on its way to victory in front of a sellout crowd of 77,622 at Notre Dame Stadium and an NBC viewing audience.

The Lobos avoided a shutout, but Notre Dame scored its most points in a home opener since 1932 when the Irish beat Haskell 73-0.

1. Sad to say,

this was all about raising money for the New Mexico Athletic Program. Nothing more nothing less. Just had the same outcome with UNLV yesterday as Northwestern buried them just to get their percentage of the Gate and TV rights.

The sad thing is,the caliber of Athlete and skill levels of ND and Northwestern are so superior to these Cannon Fodder Schools. All you end up with are several players getting injured and seeing their Athletic Careers ending.

UNLV and New Mexico should never be in Division One.
