Dealing with the deficit
Martinez outlines changes for administrative cuts, death penalty
by Shaun Griswold email@example.com
by Shaun Griswold
SANTA FE — The 60-day legislative session kicked off Tuesday, and UNM officials will monitor 77 bills that could impact the University’s financial and administrative future. If passed, some legislation would reorganize several administrations, prohibit public officials from lobbying during a certain period after vacating their posts, create a task force to study family workplace procedures and extend the Lottery Scholarship application process. Marc Saavedra, UNM’s Government and Community Relations director, said in a mass e-mail that University officials have their work cut out for them. “We are anticipating a long and grueling 60-day session during which state lawmakers will deal with many tough issues,” he said. Saavedra said the University is supporting Gov. Susana Martinez’s recommendation of a 1.8 percent cut to UNM’s Instructional and General fund. The Legislative Finance Committee’s recommendation, which comes from the Legislature, is for a 3.8 percent I&G cut. Senate Majority floor leader Michael Sanchez (D-Belen) sponsored SB 1, which would authorize the state to sell short-term revenue bonds to supplement the nearly $400 million deficit in the general fund. If passed, the bill would assist operations at New Mexico universities. “It’s intended to assist operations so there won’t be furloughs, salary cuts or outright dismissal of teachers and professors,” Sanchez told the Daily Lobo. Sanchez said this is the first year he has ever had to plug a significant budget gap. “There is a real need and this solves the budget need, but it’s going to be hard to pass,” he said. Sanchez said if the money is appropriated, then it will be divided into each university’s general fund where school administrators will decide in what areas the money will be spent. He said it is unclear at this point how much money each university would receive. Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Financial details will not be available until the bill makes Gov.

SANTA FE— During her inaugural State of the State speech at the Roundhouse, Gov. Susana Martinez laid out her plan for bold change. She called for administrative cuts in education, pro-business legislation and to reinstate the death penalty. “By working together, we will take our state in a new direction,” she said. “Embracing bold change over the status quo, choosing progress over complacency and putting aside partisan differences to achieve lasting results for New Mexico families.” Martinez said public education will endure administrative cuts to offset a more-than-$400 million state deficit and ensure there are no classroom cuts. “By making cuts elsewhere, my budget only requires the education bureaucracy to trim 1.5 percent from the administration,” she said. Aside from administrative cuts, her education initiative, “Kids First, New Mexico Wins,” focuses on quickly identifying and helping the worst-performing public schools and students, ensuring students pass with sufficient skills and rewarding teachers who perform well. The governor also presented ideas to promote public safety, including expanding DNA collection from some to all felony arrests, strengthening DWI penalties and imprisoning corrupt officials. “Corruption is a crime, not an ethical dilemma,” she said. “When public officials are found guilty of corruption, they should be immediately removed from office, receive mandatory prison time and be forced to surrender their pension.” She also asked lawmakers to create legislation that will reinstate the death penalty, require identification at the polls and reform immigration policies. Martinez also offered support for the Legislative Finance Committee’s budget proposal because it offered no tax increase. She promised to veto any tax increase proposal. Solving the state’s nearly $400 million deficit was the running theme throughout her speech. She suggested possible solutions including reducing the state’s film subsidy from 25 to 15 percent, eliminating clear cap-and-trade regulations to promote energy exploration in the state and opening an Office of Business Advocacy to promote small businesses and sell the state’s private jet.

Ortega classroom ‘disaster’ after leak by Tricia Remark firstname.lastname@example.org
English students walked into a mess of fallen tile and water their first day of class Tuesday in Ortega Hall Room 121, after a leak damaged parts of the ceiling, a UNM official said. Student Chris Jackson said he wasn’t concerned about his safety during class because he didn’t see active leaks, but the mess was still an eyesore. “I felt like I walked into a disaster area,” he said. Large parts of the tiled ceiling fell to the ground and on desks, and a pool of water gathered in the center of the classroom. Students sat in desks around the class’ perimeter to avoid water and plaster. Mary Vosevich, Physical Plant Department director, said the damage could be a result of work

done on the building to increase its water-heating efficiency. She didn’t provide a specific estimate about how much repairs would cost, but said it could be hundreds of dollars. She said she doesn’t know whether UNM or the contractor working on Ortega Hall will foot the bill. “If we had some kind of failure, it would be covered with our insurance,” she said. “It could be something with the contractor, but that’s not yet determined.” Vosevich said the classroom should be clean for classes today. She said UNM doesn’t have plans to remodel Ortega Hall in the near future, but PPD is working on making older buildings, including Ortega Hall, more energy efficient. “The Physical Plant is focusing on building functionality, particularly in the times of reduced budgets,” she said.

Her ideas to improve the economy included less government assistance and more free-market growth. â€œWe increase revenue by helping small businesses create jobs, not by government creating new jobs,â€? she said. The Republican aisle in the stand-
ing-room-only House chambers cheered Martinezâ€™s pro-business stance. Although Martinez called for partisanship in the beginning of her speech, the Legislature was clearly defined by its political parties, as Democrats sat on their hands through most of the speech, and Republicans clapped
loudly for the new governor. Democrats still control the House and the Senate, and Martinez ended her speech with a call for cooperation. â€œAs I said during the campaign, itâ€™s our state,â€? she said. â€œAnd, working together, we will take it back.â€?

Before you ‘pre-board,’ leave your brain at security by Jenny Gignac Opinion Editor I took a public speaking class about a million years ago and learned that humans only actually use about one-quarter of the available vocabulary in the English language. For example, we will say “ran quickly” instead of “raced.” Yeah, it’s really that simple when you look at it. Despite this phonetic availability, we manage to massacre words and phrases on a daily basis, and even make up words and phrases that make no sense. My dad has pointed out phrases that drive him over the wall of crazy. One of his favorites is “pre-board.” When you wait for your plane in the boarding area, and the attendant gets on the PA to let people know that certain people and those with children can “pre-board.” A couple of things jump out at me right at the get-go with this. First of all, if you are the unlucky parent of a small child about to board an aircraft, why on Earth would you want to get on the plane any sooner? Second of all, how exactly does one “pre-board” anything? The prefix “pre” would imply that you will do something before boarding, meaning getting on the plane. Essentially, you are being asked to get on the plane before you get on the plane. Another combination of words that has never really made sense to me is the term for teeth appearing later in life. We refer to them as “wisdom teeth.” Since the teeth arrive later, it is thought that people are wiser. In other words, kids aren’t born with them; they come in when you are an adult. Well, I could say a lot there, but rather I’ll just comment on the simple expression “wisdom teeth.” It occurred to me the other day that if a dentist were to take them out, would we then be dumber? Do I want to lose anything I may contain within my body that would assist in my intelligence level? Why not just call them “take-out teeth”? Since whenever you hear about them coming in, shortly thereafter, you hear they have to come out. Here’s is another expression I have questions about: “Ignorance is bliss.” Actually, ignorance, as defined, does not mean bliss, happy or any other words synonymous with the aforementioned. It means being uninformed, ignorant and lacking education. Now if that is someone’s idea of happiness, well, so be it. The other day, I saw this same expression modified: “If ignorance is bliss, why are there not more happy people in the world?” I like that one better. Makes more sense.

Handy hints for session obsession by Danny Hernandez Daily Lobo Guest Columnist One of the great things about living in New Mexico is that our elected officials are so accessible. This means anyone can influence policy by knowing who the players are and understanding the process. Below is a brief primer on how our legislature works in case you feel like chiming in on any of the bills being voted on this year, are interested in following this column, or want the Cliffs Notes version for N.M. State Government 101. The New Mexico legislative session starts on the third Tuesday of January at noon every year. Like Congress, our Legislature is made up of two chambers, a House of Representatives and a Senate. New Mexico has 70 representatives and 41 senators who are elected every two and four years, respectively. Each chamber has its own leadership, as does each party. House and Senate leaders decide committee assignments while party leaders keep its membership in line with party objectives. This November’s midterm election gave the House the most Republicans it has had in decades (33 to 37 Democrats). On odd numbered years, the Legislature meets for 60 days, and on even years it meets for 30 days. Thirty-day sessions can only deal with budgetary issues or issues the governor deems “germane” by placing them on “the governor’s call.” This year is a non-budget-only year, but given the state’s current fiscal situation, it might as well be a budget-only session.
The budget process The executive branch proposes a budget as prepared by the Department of Finance Administration (DFA) and as directed by the governor. At the same time, the legislative branch proposes its own independent budget as prepared by the Legislative Finance Committee (LFC). The LFC is composed of members from both chambers and has a staff that is separate from that of the DFA. The two budgets are based on two separate, but similar, revenue and expense projections. To give a sense of perspective, these budgets are in the 500-600 page, $5.5 billion range and are written at the department and division level. Did I mention that it includes what UNM is allocated? Both budgets get combined into House Bill 2 (HB 2), which must be passed, in identical form, by both chambers. When both chambers have passed HB 2, it goes on to the governor for her signature. The governor has the option to sign, lineitem veto, veto or pocket veto (veto through inaction) HB 2. (She has the same options, minus the line-item veto, for all non-budget legislation). The budget that is passed will go into effect July 1 and end June 30 next year. Leadership and decision-making As stated above, leadership is divided by chamber and party, but the two most influential people are the speaker of the House and the Senate president pro tempore. Each of these men is elected by his own chamber and is responsible for appointing members (including chairs) and bills to committees. It is said that bills assigned to three or more committees are dead on arrival. A power struggle taking place for the speaker position could further tilt the power dynamics to the right this year. Standing committee chairs are the secondmost influential people in the legislature, because, among other things, they decide which bills are heard in their committees. A bill that isn’t heard is
also effectively dead. Next down the line in influence are majority and minority floor leaders and whips. They’re charged to make sure members adhere to perspective party agendas and strategies. How a bill becomes law It’s a misconception that the governor can introduce legislation. Only legislators can do so, but in practice, the governor can ask a member of either chamber (usually from her own party) to introduce a bill on her behalf (so can you — I have). Also in practice, legislators don’t usually write (draft) their own bills. That is done by Legislative Services, a small army of public servants who work long hours behind the scenes. For a bill to become law, it must be passed by both chambers and then signed by the governor. After a bill is “dropped in the hopper,” it is assigned to standing committees. Those committees hear the merits of each bill through public testimony and Legislative Services analysis. Bills that make it through all their committees are heard on the chamber’s floor and passed on to the next chamber. Citizen lobbying You can find and track bills via the New Mexico Legislature website (nmlegis.gov/lcs). You can influence bills by calling or visiting your legislators and members of committees. You can even testify before committees. In fact, it’s precisely what a citizen is supposed to do. Danny Hernandez is pursuing a master’s in community and regional planning and public administration. He has extensive experience working as a “citizen lobbyist.” This column will report on what is happening at the Roundhouse from a UNM student perspective.

In the Jan. 10 story, “UNM President denies Pit bid-rigging allegations,” by Ruben Hamming-Green and Shaun Griswold, President David Schmidly denied allegations of cronyism and said he didn’t influence the awarding of The Pit contract to an Oklahoma-based contractor. Online readers discussed the topic: by ‘Fahken Figures’ posted Saturday “Jaynes sues every time it doesn’t get a contract. Flintco has been here in N.M. for years. Albuquerque media will twist things around because it needs to sell media to you … .and you drink the Kool-Aid, no questions asked. It’s true: The masses are asses!”
by ‘Amused’ posted Jan. 10 “How many times do we have to put up with Schmidly’s self-serving ploys? He has created a ‘culture of greed’ at UNM. Scholes Hall has become a den of thieves.” by ‘Why Are We Surprised’ posted Tuesday “Basketball > academics. Clearly. Schmidboy had it right then: Pour all of the students’ increasing tuition into a shiny, new basketball stadium. No one’s really here for academics, right? Cheers to an academic, er, I mean athletic, institution that is heading toward a notso-bright future.”
by ‘Really’ posted Jan. 10 “(Quoting Schmidly) ‘It’s unfortunate that there’s a lot of personal accusations about me that are not true, and I will defend those vigorously. And this other stuff that gets into my family and my friends is personal and inappropriate, and I will defend them.’ The thing is, Schmidly, that your friend (Flintco) gave a job to a member of your family (your son) after your friend was given a huge contract that another, less friendly, company should have been given. Slimeball!”

HM 1 would form an advisory task force to determine if public institutions are providing enough childcare opportunities and are allowing parents adequate time off work after they have a newborn. â€œWe will look at the UNM day care program and see what types of support they give for families,â€? Picraux said. â€œWe could determine they need more space for services and take the necessary steps to appropriate funding to get them there.â€?

â€œWeâ€™re not teaching science-based reading,â€? Hall said. â€œItâ€™s tough. We have to make this clear, but if they donâ€™t start, I am prepared to cut funding from the College of Education to zero.â€? Bill Rehm (R-Albuquerque) sponsored a bill that would ensure no employee who resigns or is fired for just cause could receive a golden parachute severance package. HB 60, or the No Golden Parachute Bill, states, â€œany state educational institution shall not pay any compensation, perquisite or allowance to an employee who resigns or is terminated for cause.â€? The bill does allow for compensation if itâ€™s determined under the employment agreement, but no â€œextraordinary benefits.â€? Danice Picraux (D-Albuquerque) supports House Memorial 1, which
(what will happen). They have a lot of competing needs right now, especially with the stateâ€™s budget.â€? The Executive Budget Recommendation, submitted by Gov. Susana Martinez, includes higher retirement contributions for all public employees, with the exception of grade-school classroom teachers. Kennedy said he would not support further changes to the retirement plan, particularly an increase in member contributions. â€œWe understand the problem,â€? Kennedy said. â€œWe understand that thereâ€™s not much money, but taking it out of our pockets is not fair.â€? University College employee Mary Thomas said she is relieved about the ERB proposal, and she would be willing to contribute more to her retirement plan. â€œThey made it very unattractive to be an employee at an educational institution,â€? Thomas said. â€œItâ€™s very stressful when you see your future just fall apart.â€?
Outrage over a proposal that would affect many UNM employeesâ€™ retirement plans has died down, and state officials claim the lull is a result of weeks of compromise. Jan Goodwin, N.M. Educational Retirement Board executive director, said the boardâ€™s final recommendations quelled uprising against the proposed ERB policy changes. â€œOur volume of e-mails has diminished substantially,â€? Goodwin said. â€œAll along many members have said they would rather see an increase in contributions.â€? In November, the NMERB drafted a proposal to increase both the number of years members have to work before retiring as well as contribution rates. The proposal being presented to the
Legislature only increases membersâ€™ rates, not years before retirement. The current plan, unanimously approved by the board Dec. 17, increases member contributions by 0.5 percent. Members earning more than $20,000 would contribute 9.9 percent of their wages, and members earning less than $20,000 would contribute 8.4 percent. Merle Kennedy, UNM Staff Council president, said he supports the proposal. â€œThe staff was very happy with the ERB recommendations, and we are proud to step up to the plate and contribute some more,â€? Kennedy said. â€œWe felt they responded to the membership very well. ... I sure hope it flies through the Legislature.â€? The ERBâ€™s proposal was presented to the New Mexico Legislature, which will pass final changes to the plan. â€œWeâ€™ll be testifying at all the committees when the bill is discussed and trying to provide as much helpful input as the Legislature would like,â€? Goodwin said. â€œItâ€™s hard to say

high school in order to qualify for the scholarship, which Oâ€™Neill said is unjust. â€œThose who arenâ€™t able to make that decision to go to college right away shouldnâ€™t be able to be shut out,â€? he said. Oâ€™Neill added that the House voted to support a similar bill in 2007, but the Senate voted down the bill because of financial constraints. He said he is expecting the same obstacle this session. Jimmie C. Hall (R-Albuquerque) sponsored HB 70, which would cut funds from teacher preparation programs that do not teach future educators in order to develop science-based reading curricula. He said Dr. Richard Howell at the College of Education has embraced the idea and has been a leader in collecting opinions from representatives at CNM and ENMU. Proof # 2

A new study provides disturbing answers to questions about how much students actually learn in college — for many, not much — and has inflamed a debate about the value of an American higher education. The research of more than 2,300 undergraduates found 45 percent of students show no significant improvement in the key measures of critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing by the end of their sophomore years. One problem is that students just aren’t asked to do much, according to findings in a new book, “Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses.” Half of students did not take a single course requiring 20 pages of writing during their prior semester, and one-third did not take a single course requiring even 40 pages of reading per week. That kind of light load sounded familiar to University of Missouri freshman Julia Rheinecker, who said her first semester of college largely duplicated the work she completed back home in southern Illinois. “I’m not going to lie,” she said. “Most of what I learned this year I already had in high school. It was almost easier my first semester (in college).” Three of the five classes she took at Missouri were in massive lecture halls with several hundred students. And Rheinecker said she was required to complete at least 20 pages of writing in only one of those classes. “I love the environment, don’t get me wrong,” she said. “I just haven’t found myself pushing as much as I expected.” The study, an unusually largescale effort to track student learning over time, comes as the federal government, reformers and others argue that the U.S. must produce more college graduates to remain competitive globally. But if students aren’t learning much that calls into question whether boosting graduation rates will provide that edge. “It’s not the case that giving out more credentials is going to make the U.S. more economically competitive,” Richard Arum of New York University, who co-authored the book with Josipa Roksa of the University of Virginia, said in an interview. “It requires academic rigor ... You can’t just get it through osmosis at these institutions.” The book is based on information from 24 schools, meant to be a representative sample, which provided Col-
legiate Learning Assessment data on students who took the standardized test in their first semester in fall 2005 and at the end of their sophomore years in spring 2007. The schools took part on the condition that their institutions not be identified. The Collegiate Learning Assessment has its share of critics who say it doesn’t capture learning in specialized majors or isn’t a reliable measure of college performance because so many factors are beyond their control. The research found an averagescoring student in fall 2005 scored seven percentage points higher in spring of 2007 on the assessment. In other words, those who entered college in the 50th percentile would rise to the equivalent of the 57th after their sophomore years. Among the findings outlined in the book and report, which tracked students through four years of college: —Overall, the picture doesn’t brighten much over four years. After four years, 36 percent of students did not demonstrate significant improvement, compared to 45 percent after two. —Students who studied alone, read and wrote more, attended more selective schools and majored in traditional arts and sciences majors posted greater learning gains. —Social engagement generally does not help student performance. Students who spent more time studying with peers showed diminishing growth and students who spent more time in the Greek system had decreased rates of learning, while activities such as working off campus, participating in campus clubs and volunteering did not impact learning. —Students from families with different levels of parental education enter college with different learning levels but learn at about the same rates while attending college. The racial gap between black and white students going in, however, widens: Black students improve their assessment scores at lower levels than whites. Arum and Roksa spread the blame,
pointing to students who don’t study much and seek easy courses and a culture at colleges and universities that values research over good teaching. Yahya Fahimuddin, a sixth-year computer science student at the University of California, Los Angeles, endorsed the latter finding, saying professors do seem more concerned with research. He said he can’t remember the last time he wrote a paper longer than three pages, double-spaced. He feels little connection to his professors and gets the sense that mastering material is not as important as the drudge work of meeting goals and getting through material on schedule. “Honestly, you can get by with Wikipedia and pass just about anything,” he said. Phil Hampton, a UCLA spokesman, said the university offers a rigorous and well-rounded curriculum led by faculty committed to student learning, and pointed to a study that showed high student satisfaction with their experience. So what to do? The report warns that federally mandated fixes similar to “No Child Left Behind” in K-12 education would be “counterproductive,” in part because researchers are still learning how to measure learning. But it does make clear that accountability should be emphasized more at the institutional level, starting with college presidents. Some colleges and universities are taking steps. The University of Charleston, in West Virginia, has beefed up writing assignments in disciplines such as nursing and biology to improve learning. President Edwin Welch is among more than 70 college and university presidents pledging to take steps to improve student learning, use evidence to improve instruction and publicize results. “I think we do need more transparency,” Welch said. “I think a student at a private institution who might go into debt for $40,000 or $50,000 has the right to know what he can learn at the institution.”
Correction The correct spelling of the Boondock Saints comiccover winner, as reported in Tuesday’s “Rare event brings comic relief to fanatics” story, is Jared Velarde, not Velardo.

Next stop for the UNM men’s basketball team: Utah. After losing 87-77 to No. 6 San Diego State, the Lobos head on a two-game road trip that starts Wednesday.
Head coach Steve Alford said the Utes are playing more up-tempo this season. “With their makeup and the identity of who they are, they are trying to play faster,” he said. “They have mixed defenses more, and have predominately been man in the past. Now they mix in zone,
2-3 zone, 2-2-1 press (defenses) and trap a little more.” The Utes just earned their first Mountain West Conference victory Saturday with a 68-61 home win against Wyoming. Utah head coach Jim Boylen

said UNM can beat Utah at many different aspects on the court. “They are a very tough, physical team,” he said. “(Drew) Gordon is starting to play (like) who they thought he would be. Dairese Gary has been a guy that has hurt us with his toughness and physicality, too.” Just as quickly, though, Boylen pointed out that the Lobos and Utes have shared a lot of growing pains this season. The Utes are two years removed from a share of the MWC regularseason championship, while the Lobos are the defending back-toback titleholders. “I think they have a young developing team, too,” he said. “But, you know, we have a lot of respect for New Mexico, and we’ve had a lot of
great games with them.” And with a looming Saturday trip to Sin City to face UNLV, the Lobos are in a must-win situation. The loser of Wednesday night’s game will have one win in conference play. The Utes could drop to 1-4, while the Lobos could drop to 1-3. For UNM, reaching the .500 mark could salvage the MWC season. The good news for the Lobos is Alford said UNM hasn’t struggled playing on the road. They have struggled in other areas. “It’s the last four-minute game of each half that we have struggled with,” he said. “We’ve got to be able to concentrate and focus through the entire 20 minutes of each half, and I think that is what we have to work on.”
One thing the Lobos have going for them: UCLA transfer Drew Gordon is beginning to live up to the hype. Against a powerful SDSU, Gordon shined under The Pit lights. Gordon averaged 11.4 points per game and nearly nine boards per contest. Against the Aztecs, Gordon nabbed 14 rebounds and posted 23 points. Gordon and Gary combined for 47 points in the 10-point loss to the Aztecs. Gordon said he and Gary, and his other teammates, are clicking on the court. “I rely on my teammates fully,” he said. “It’s a new experience for me being out on the road because I had to sit for a full year, and I have no idea how these schools really
play. I have talked to Dairese a lot, and I have basically talked to all of the upperclassmen to get a feel for it.” With Utah on the slate, Gordon said he is still looking to become a reliable threat. “If it wasn’t exciting, or if it wasn’t fun,” he said, “I wouldn’t do it.”

Coaches Utes bring hoops, Swoops sport similar styles by Ryan Tomari
For the UNM women’s basketball team, this season has been uneasy and maybe a little nauseating. The Lobos have lost seven of their past eight games and are 0-3 in the Mountain West Conference. Returning home after a two-game road trip, the Lobos will host Utah. Known for his honesty, head coach Don Flanagan said his team is discouraged. “My main thing is we don’t want to lose confidence,” he said. “We’ve had some games or at least one game where I thought we played well and did win. Two games, we got out-executed, and one game we got out-hustled.” Much like the Lobos, the Utes are youthful. Utah only has three upperclassmen on its roster and is lead by Janita Badon. The point guard has averaged nearly six assists per game. Iwalani Rodrigues is the team’s
leading scorer with 14.7 points per game, followed by Michelle Plouffe, who is a close second with 13.5 points per contest. Making matters worse, the Utes have beaten the Lobos on a regular basis over the last couple seasons. The Utes have a commanding lead over the Lobos, with an all-time record advantage of 50-18. Utah has also won the past eight games since January 2008, and the Utes won all three matchups last season, including a win in the MWC Tournament quarterfinals. “We used to beat them on a regular basis,” Flanagan said. “It’s kind of frustrating, and all of those games were pretty darn close, and almost all of them have come down to one possession. So, that is just something that just may swing back our way.” During UNM’s three-point loss to San Diego State on Saturday, center Jessica Kielpinski grabbed a seasonhigh 11 rebounds. Owning a 6-9 record, Kielpinski
said UNM isn’t happy with how the season has unfolded. “Anybody who is on a losing streak, you’re just not happy,” she said. “There are more problems, but we just need to stay positive and that’s the only way we’re going to get out of this. Because if we’re not positive, it’s just going to keep going downhill.” Still, Flanagan said he hasn’t hit the panic button just yet. “There has been some concern for a while now,” he said. “So it’s past that time. We just have to get over it and play.”

make use of a weekly press conference to point out that the upcoming game is â€œpersonal,â€? as Ryan famously has during this postseason. Tomlin also works for an organization that would, in all likelihood, politely decline allowing HBO cameras to document the teamâ€™s training camp, as the Jets did this past summer for a reality series. But throw all that out for a second. During his weekly press conference Tuesday in advance of the AFC championship game between his Steelers (13-4) and Ryanâ€™s Jets (13-5), Tomlin implied that if someone were given that kind of behind-the-scenes access to his team, theyâ€™d discover that the Jets and Steelers arenâ€™t that far apart. â€œOur styles are probably more similar than you would imagine,â€?
