Berry cans pot proposal New chief vows to reign in assaults
By Tomas Lujan
On Friday Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry said he vetoed five voter initiatives because he does not want to approve the decriminalization of marijuana or raise taxes in Albuquerque. Berry exercised his veto authority on R-14-91 because of last-minute provisions added by the City Council that he said lack detail or circumvent state and federal law. “This is a bill that has the potential to raise the taxes of the citizens of Albuquerque without any clear or concise plan as to how those tax resources will be spent,” Berry said in a video posted to YouTube. “It also has the potential to decriminalize an illegal drug in our city.” Patrick Davis of ProgressNow NM, one of the organizations sponsoring the marijuana decriminalization campaign, said his group was disappointed to see the mayor deny citizens of Albuquerque the chance to express their opinions on the issue. “We’re in this position because City Hall made a mistake, and the majority on our council gave (Berry) a chance to fix that forced error and honor the will of the voters,” Davis said. “Sadly, it looks like City Hall has chosen to play electoral turn-out politics instead of investing in the true democratic process.” Berry said he was disheartened to have been put in a position to have to

In an online video posted Friday, Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry describes why he vetoed five voter initiatives that, if passed, would have decriminalized marijuana and raised taxes.
Lowering the number of sexual assaults on campus and improving general safety will be the new goals of the UNM Police Department. The department’s new chief, Kevin McCabe, said he hopes to accomplish these things by collaborating with the Albuquerque Police Department. “The focus is on the educational experience — to provide a safe campus for everybody that is a part of the UNM family: students, faculty and staff,” McCabe said. UNM hired McCabe over the summer to replace the outgoing police chief Kathy Guimond. McCabe has served UNMPD for four years, and before that served for 24 years with APD, where he retired as deputy chief of police. According to a statement from UNM, McCabe was a top candidate in a nationwide search conducted to fill the position. “Kevin offers the best of both worlds for this position, in that he has had extensive experience in a city police department and on a campus police force,” Executive Vice President of the Administrative Department David Harris said in a statement. “In addition, there is added value in that he is already familiar with our University and its community, so he can hit the ground running in this key role at UNM.”
McCabe said the expectation of his officers is that they are professional. “I take a lot of pride in this police department,” McCabe said. “I hope (UNMPD officers) take the attitude that I want to make this campus safe for their own sons or daughters, and do everything they can to create that type of atmosphere.” One of McCabe’s top priorities as chief of police is to prevent sexual assault on campus, he said. “I want to make sure we do everything we can, like providing escorts, and that our patrol officers are always vigilant,” he said. “That if we get called we are investigating properly and providing all the resources we can for victims.” UNM employs 36 officers, and McCabe said that four to five officers are on constant patrol of UNM property at any given time. Because UNM has property beyond main campus, McCabe said UNMPD has an ongoing collaboration with APD. “We know they are a resource we can use, and vice versa,” he said. “We let the southeast area commanders know any time there is anything of interest on or around campus.” In the past, McCabe specialized in creating partnerships at APD. During his time with the department,

WORLD BRIEFS Ukraine NATO announced on Monday the creation of a “very high-readiness force” in response to Russian military aggression in Ukraine, CNN reports. The force will be part of a Readiness Action Plan designed to help allied countries respond to security challenges, in addition to dealing with Russia, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a speech. U.S. officials support the creation of the military response force, but stressed that it should be purely defensive in nature. National Security Spokesperson Caitlin Hayden said the force is “not intended as a provocation or as a threat to Russia, but rather as a demonstration of NATO’s continued commitment to our collective defense.” Meanwhile on the ground, CNN reports that Ukrainian forces are significantly under-supplied compared to Russian rebel groups fighting in eastern Ukraine. British Prime Minister David Cameron has called the Russian occupation “unjustified” and “unacceptable,” and announced that new EU sanctions against Russia are currently being drawn up. Iraq In northern Iraq, Shia and Kurdish military forces are advancing against Islamic State forces after ending the bloody siege of the town of Amerli, and have also seized the strategic stronghold of Suleiman Beg from the IS.
General National Congress, the country’s previous parliament, to take over, but the United Nations said it will only back the democratically elected House, BBC reports. Pakistan Protests against the government of Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif turned violent over the weekend, resulting in three deaths and massive destruction of property, Reuters reported. Pakistani defense minister Khawaja Asif said the government is preparing to launch police crackdowns against protest groups, which are being led by cleric Tahir ul-Qadri and former star cricket player and politician Imran Khan. The protesters stormed the state television headquarters and led a march on Sharif’s home in Islamabad. U.S. officials said Monday that although they respect the right of Pakistanis to hold peaceful demonstrations, they condemn the use of violence and vandalism to enact change, Reuters reported. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki urged both sides to “refrain from violence, exercise restraint and respect the rule of law,” and called for the government and protest leaders to start a peaceful dialogue. Protesters have said they will not stop until Sharif resigns. Asif said a resignation is not an option, and that the government is prepared to do whatever it takes to restore order, Reuters reported.
working together makes us a stronger police department and stronger university,” he said. UNMPD has officers who can provide escort services 24 hours a day, seven days a week to anyone walking from one oncampus location to another. Anyone who would like an officer escort can call the dispatch office at 277-2241. All UNMPD officers are state-certified police officers and have the arrest and
investigative capabilities of any other statecertified police officer, according to Lt. Tim Stump, UNMPD public information officer. The average police experience of a UNMPD officer is about 18 years, he said.

he said he helped create networks with Albuquerque businesses to help prevent theft and worked with local organizations to create the APD domestic violence victim assistance unit. McCabe said the importance of building partnerships is also something he learned from former UNMPD chief Guimond. “The former chief did a great job of establishing a reputation of a professional organization, and

These victories come in the wake of reports from Amnesty International of ethnic cleansing and “acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale” committed by the Islamic State against non-Arabs and nonSunni Muslims, BBC reports. In recent months, Islamic State forces have seized large areas in western and northern Iraq, and BBC reports that thousands have been killed, mostly civilians, and over a million people have been forced to flee the areas. The advances in Amerli and Suleiman Beg are the most important victories against IS forces in months, BBC reports. Libya Islamist-linked militia forces have taken control of the U.S. embassy and most of the government ministries and offices in Libya’s capital city Tripoli, BBC reports. Various militia groups have been vying for control of the country since they overthrew the government of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, with help from Western countries. The Islamist-linked group Libya Dawn took control of the capital last week, forcing U.S. and other embassies to evacuate their staffs, and the elected parliament and other senior government representatives have had to flee to the eastern city of Tobruk. After resigning last week, Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni has been reinstated by the democratically elected House of Representatives, and has been given the task of forming a new government. Libya Dawn has called on the

Obama backs wage hikes By Jim Kuhnhenn MILWAUKEE (AP) — President Barack Obama renewed his push for Congress to raise the minimum wage Monday in a buoyant accounting of the economy’s “revving” performance, delivered on behalf of Democrats opening their fall campaigns for the midterm congressional elections. “America deserves a raise,” he told a union crowd in Milwaukee, vowing to keep a hard sell on Congress in much the way he once courted his wife. “I just wore her down,” he cracked. Timing his push for Labor Day, the traditional start of the autumn campaign, Obama aggressively drew attention to recent economic gains, setting aside past caution on that subject. “By almost every measure the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office,” he said, rattling off a string of improving economic indicators even while acknowledging not all people are benefiting. “The engines,” he said, “are revving a little louder.” It was, at least indirectly, a pep talk for Democrats facing tough races in a nation still gripped with economic anxieties. The emphasis on the minimum wage is designed to draw campaign contrasts with Republicans, many of whom maintain that an increase would hurt small businesses and slow down hiring. No one expects Congress to act on it before the November elections. Despite the absence of a federal increase, 13 states raised their minimum wages at the beginning of this year. Those states have added jobs at a faster pace than those that did not raise the wage, providing a counterpoint to a Congressional Budget Office report earlier this year that projected that a higher minimum wage of $10.10 an hour could cost the nation 500,000 jobs. Until now, Obama and his White House aides had been reluctant to draw too much attention to positive economic trends, worried that some may prove illusory or that, even if they hold, many working Americans continue to live on the edge of poverty and take no comfort in the upswing. But in Milwaukee, Obama dared to say of the job picture, “We’re on a streak.” White House aides still insist they are not declaring full victory over the lingering effects of a

recession that ended five years ago. But White House officials believe it is time to highlight recent improvements, in part to strengthen a difficult political environment for Democrats and to counter public perceptions that are eroding the president’s public approval. Officials say Obama’s most compelling case is to compare the economy now to what he inherited in 2009 in the aftermath of a near Wall Street meltdown. Obama, whose public approval is at about 40 percent, has also been cautious about making appearances in states with close midterm political contests and where his popularity might be even lower. But in coming to Wisconsin, he brought his Labor Day message to the state that was the epicenter of a fight over the collective bargaining rights of public employees. Labor Secretary Tom Perez and several national labor leaders came with him. In Wisconsin, Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who pushed through a law that stripped most public sector union members of their ability to collectively bargain, is now in a tight re-election campaign and has been mentioned as a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016. Polls find that Walker and Democrat Mary Burke are deadlocked with the election just over two months away. Walker was at General Mitchell International Airport to greet Obama upon his arrival in Milwaukee. Walker also greeted the labor leaders accompanying Obama, including Mary Kay Henry of the Services Employees International Union and Leo Gerard
veto an entire bill because he did not agree with certain aspects of it. “While I am supportive of the bill as originally drafted, and fully support sending many of the measures to voters for their consideration, I cannot in good conscience sign a bill that would impose a tax increase on the people of Albuquerque without any specific plan as to how the taxpayer resources would be spent or a bill that flies in the face of state and federal law as it pertains to illegal drugs,” Berry said. According to the city charter, he did not have the ability to veto only portions of the resolution, and therefore decided to veto it in its entirety, he said. He hopes that following this veto the City Council will work together to send him a bill he can send to voters for their consideration, he said. Davis said city leaders too often bemoan the low voter turnouts in city elections, so to see the mayor turn away from the opportunity to allow voters to weigh in on how the city deals with crime and justice issues is

especially discouraging. On Aug. 18 the Albuquerque City Council voted 5-4 in favor of allowing a measure that would reduce marijuana penalties to be put on the ballot in November, following a petition initiated by ProgressNow NM that managed to collect over 16,000 signatures in support of the proposed changes. This initiative sought to reduce penalties for anyone found in possession of up to an ounce of marijuana in the Albuquerque area to a civic penalty of $25, regardless of prior transgressions for the same offense. On Thursday the city council of Santa Fe adopted a similar citizen-led ordinance advanced by the same campaign. Possession of small amounts of marijuana will be decriminalized in that city next month. Visit dailylobo.com to see Berry’s video explanation of the veto.

of the United Steelworkers Union. The White House is encouraging Democrats to draw attention to the recovery as they head into the November mid-term elections. In an August memo to House and Senate Democrats, Obama’s top two economic advisers underscored the positive news: more than 200,000 jobs created per month for six consecutive months, a six-year high in auto sales, second-quarter economic growth that exceeded expectations and an expanding manufacturing sector. The unemployment rate stands at 6.2 percent, dropping 1.1 points over the past year, and the stock market has nearly tripled in five years. Jim Kuhnhenn is a writer for the Associated Press.

Facts not in history books...or in history By Danny Tyree Editor’s note: This column is a work of satire. Sept. 1 marked the 75th anniversary of Germany’s invasion of Poland, generally considered to be the start of World War II. My son Gideon has unknowingly given me an idea of how to mark that occasion. Following in the footsteps of my late father, he recently became enamored of “Reader’s Digest.” The venerable magazine has a recurring feature in which an anonymous professional tells the tricks and secrets of his trade, as in “15 Things Your Banker Won’t Tell You,” “15 Things Your Hair Stylist Won’t Tell You,” “15 Things Your Crazy Ex’s Sleazebag Lawyer Won’t Tell You,” etc. Well, I feel it’s my patriotic (and space-limited) duty to present “Eight Things Your Historian Won’t Tell You.” 1. Adolf Hitler never got to enjoy an uninterrupted viewing of Leni Riefenstahl’s 1935 propaganda film “Triumph of the Will” because he was always frothing at the mouth about the price of popcorn and soft drinks. 2. Deposed British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain spent years defending himself from charges that he was too naïve in negotiating with Hitler (“I was distracted by Prince Albert suffocating in the can. And that confounded refrigerator just kept running!”). 3. Chamberlain’s successor, Winston Churchill, delivered an inspirational speech that was originally supposed to contain, “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender. What? Yes, I suppose that could apply to opposing Nazis, but I was really talking about fighting DENTISTS.” 4. Beyond just isolationists, there were old-timers who were less than gung-ho about American prospects in the conflict (“Greatest generation, my Aunt Fanny! Waaal, maybe you whippersnappers can do okay with rationing, foxholes and shell shock, but I’ll bet you’d come a-crying if you had to deal with bigwheeled bicycles, off-key barbershop quartets and striped full-body swimsuits like WE did”). 5. We’ve heard of the shameful practice of building internment camps for JapaneseAmerican citizens, but President Roosevelt also had contingency plans for internment camps for those who “sat under the apple tree with anyone else but me.” 6. French General Charles de Gaulle was distraught over public perception (“No matter how valiantly the French underground fights, the American talk radio hosts portray us as a bunch of white-flag wavers. I’ve tried everything to get rid of the stereotype. I give up! D’oh!”). 7. In those less health-conscious times, the surgeon general emblazoned cigarette packages with the warning, “Smoke ‘em if you’ve got ‘em — but only if you’ve rolled them in lard and sugar first!” 8. We know of Japanese Kamikaze pilots who viewed Emperor Hirohito as a god and willingly went to their deaths for him; less known are the more laid-back Japanese combatants who said, “I’m a spiritual person, but I think I’ll commune with Hirohito on the golf course instead of in a burning plane. Besides, December 7 is my one day to sleep late.” Danny Tyree is a syndicated columnist. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s not just about Michael Brown By Jason Lee Byas
It’s been interesting to watch information go back and forth on the shooting of Michael Brown, and to watch people’s reactions to that information. After initial reports that Brown had been shot in the back, early autopsies showed that the bullets actually entered through the front (one shot which grazed the hand may have come from the rear). After claims that Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Brown, had a fractured eye socket, it was discovered that he just had a swollen face. Yet no matter what information comes out, most people have stuck firmly to whatever narrative they accepted from the beginning. Discussions about the facts of the case have also been very loud and emotionally charged. This is because conversations about what happened between Darren Wilson and Michael Brown are not really about what happened between Darren Wilson and Michael Brown. The case is actually serving as a symbol for two other questions, more fundamental and much broader in scope. The first of which is: “Are the police out of control?” The way people are talking about this case seems to imply that if Wilson’s use of force was not in necessary self-defense, the police are out of control — and if it was, everything’s fine. No matter how the facts of this particular case turn out, though, the answer to this question is yes. Even if Darren Wilson turns out to be a near-perfect moral exemplar, the police are out of control. Some estimates say that police kill roughly 400 Americans a year, but the real number is likely much, much higher due to issues with the way that statistic is calculated. Furthermore, while there is unfortunately no footage of what actually happened that night between Wilson and Brown, Ferguson, Mo. has since given us plenty of evidence of lawlessness from the police. Police have used tear gas, rolled through in military vehicles, raided churches, screamed “I’ll f— ing kill you” at crowds, attacked reporters
and just generally wreaked chaos on the Missouri town. The second question that many people are really asking when they ask what happened to Michael Brown is: “Is the criminal justice system of the United States still especially skewed against people of color?” Here, too, we already know the answer is yes. Maybe Darren Wilson is literally incapable of seeing race. Maybe he is the least racist white person in all of Missouri. Even if that’s true, it is also true beyond a reasonable doubt that people of color, especially young black men, live under constant attack from the police. As has been widely reported, blacks in Ferguson are stopped by police at an alarmingly higher rate than whites and are also subject to a disproportionate number of arrests. Ferguson is not unique here. Institutional racism is unfortunately just another part of the American experience. Despite whites being more likely to use illegal drugs, blacks are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession. Racial disparities in the prosecution of gun crimes are even larger. It’s not for no reason that black families have somber talks with their sons about how to deal with the police. Because these figures are just numbers to most people, they often fail to inspire change. This leads those living their reality to rally behind a symbol like the fallen flesh and blood of Michael Brown. Since so much has happened to so many people that has never gotten the news coverage this case has, Brown serves as a stand-in for what’s happened to them or those that they know. They don’t see Darren Wilson, they see the cop who murdered their brothers, framed their cousins or shoved guns in their faces at an early age. They don’t see the Ferguson Police Department, they see the prisons that overflow with people who look like them for “crimes” that hurt no one. Given Ferguson PD’s failure to be forthcoming with their side of the story, the actions they’ve taken in response to protests and proven lies from nearby departments, it’s probably safer to be skeptical of their
claims. Even in the unlikely event that they’re right, though, there’s still more than enough reason for the public to take a strong stance against the police. Not just in Ferguson, but everywhere. It’s not just Michael Brown getting killed. It’s not just Ferguson where the police are an occupying army. It’s not just Darren Wilson and it’s not just a few bad apples. These problems are structural and have to be addressed at the root. Jason Lee Byas is a fellow at the Center for a Stateless Society (c4ss.org).

Sun Devils preparing for Lobos’ triple option By John Marshall TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Despite his small-program background, Todd Graham is not a proponent of facing schools from college football’s lower ranks now that he’s at Arizona State. Win and — well, you were supposed to. Lose or even play poorly, and things can get ugly. Regardless of the outcome, the games almost always get sloppy in the second half. Despite his disdain for facing FCS opponents, Graham didn’t mind the 19th-ranked Sun Devils opening this season against Weber State. Arizona State won in a blowout, as it should have, but the win also gave its young defensive players a confidence boost and allowed the entire team a chance to identify areas
that need to be worked on before the schedule starts getting tougher. It was, in other words, almost like a preseason game for the Sun Devils. “I’m glad we had that opponent first because we needed that kind of experience there,” Graham said Monday. As openers go, the Sun Devils couldn’t have asked for a much better start against Weber State. Arizona overwhelmed an overmatched opponent 45-14 and came away relatively healthy. The offense revved up after some miscues in the opening two drives, racing to a 31-0 halftime lead, allowing Graham to rest most of his starters in the second half. The young defense held up under the bright lights of game pressure, the nine new starters

Baylor shows off defense in opener By Stephen Hawkins
WACO, Texas (AP) — Offensiveminded Baylor coach Art Briles spent a lot of time during the offseason trying to convince everyone how good he expected the Bears to be on defense. There are plenty of reasons to start believing him after a strong defensive performance by the No. 10 Bears in their season-opening 45-0 win over SMU. “We had about seven guys returning that had played a bunch for us, and felt like we’d be really solid up front, and I think that held true,” Briles said Monday, a day after the impressive McLane Stadium debut. “We felt we had talent and speed on the back end, and that showed up.” SMU, whose coach June Jones is like Briles in his fondness for throwing the ball downfield and piling up big offensive numbers, was held to 67 yards on 64 plays. The Mustangs got past midfield only three times in their 17 possessions, with their deepest penetration
to the 36 before a fourth-down incompletion in the first quarter. Baylor had eight sacks, one short of the school record, and five other tackles behind the line of scrimmage. The Bears forced four fumbles, recovering two, and had an interception. “We really played well on defense, and kind of hit-and-miss on the offensive side,” Briles said. “Those guys were really dominant.” The Bears (1-0) will be at home again Saturday night against Northwestern State (0-1). Big defensive end Shawn Oakman, a 6-foot-9, 280-pound Penn State transfer who had 12 1/2 tackles for loss last season without starting a game, had two sacks in his first Baylor start. “He makes big plays, he can do that,” said Jamal Palmer, Baylor’s other starting end. “This is his time.” Palmer also was among the 10 different players who had a part in the sacks, and 19 players who got in on multiple tackles. Stephen Hawkins is a writer for the Associated Press.
and all those youngsters on the two-deep roster putting pressure on the Wildcats all night. The next step for the Sun Devils is to build on their opening victory as the schedule ratchets up in intensity. Arizona State faces tough-todefend New Mexico in its first road game on Saturday, opens Pac-12 play with Colorado the week after, and then starts a gauntlet of tough games against No. 7 UCLA on Sept. 25. “This program is about winning championships and you’ve got to be able to go on the road and win,” Graham said. “You’ve got to be undefeated at home and you have to win on the road, and (deal with) the distractions that go with that.” Arizona State’s defense was solid in the opener, overcoming a few miscues with some big plays,
including a goal-line stand in the first half. Those young Sun Devils will face a much different task in Albuquerque this weekend. Though the players handled their first game fairly well, this will be their first away from Tempe in a hostile environment. Arizona State also will be facing an offense that is not easy to defend, even for veteran teams. Unlike the read-option teams that dot the college football landscape, the Lobos run a more traditional triple option under coach Bob Davie. It’s difficult to stop because few teams run the offense anymore and it requires defenders to stick strictly to their assignments or risk watching the Lobos race off toward the end zone.
New Mexico has become pretty adept at running the triple option, too, finishing fifth nationally in yards rushing last season with just over 300 per game. The Lobos had 410 yards rushing in a 31-24 loss to UTEP last weekend. “The big thing is discipline and assignments,” Graham said. “Leaving somebody unaccounted for or not taking care of your responsibility, that can’t happen with this offense and that’s a lot of what we’ve talked about.” Once the talking is over, the Sun Devils will have to execute it. They handled it well against Weber State, but this test could be much more difficult. John Marshall is a writer for the Associated Press.

Dazzling performances in opening tourney by Liam Cary-Eaves
Fresh faces on the hardwood presented exceptional skill during the New Mexico volleyball team’s opening tournament. The Lobos (2-1 for the season) seem to have found comfort with redshirt freshman Ashley Kelsey cleaning things up from the libero position and with a junior transfer out of Grossmont College, middle blocker Simone Henderson. Henderson helped her squad earn wins over Seattle U (1-2) and UTEP (0-3), and was a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy night against No. 2 Texas (3-0). “At the JC (junior college) I started, and that really helped me see the court better and it helped me build my confidence,” Henderson said. “When I came here, Jeff (Nelson, UNM’s head coach) told me that ‘I need you as a reliable player. I need you to hit balls down … I need you to do what you came here for.’” A dazzling performance from Henderson displayed why she was a highly touted recruit. “Simone Henderson had an amazing day today,” head coach
Jeff Nelson said Friday. “She blocked well, she hit balls, she’s a great addition to our team. What an awesome thing that she can come out her first day here and have a day like this.” The highlight of Henderson’s young Lobo career came while against the tall middle blockers from Texas. Henderson accumulated six kills — the team high for that match — on just 12 attempts along with four block assists. “We just feel that, even though we lost, we are coming together as a team more,” she said. “We can rely on each other … We can only get better from here.” Nelson viewed the game against Texas as a learning experience to find resilience in the team as a whole. “If we can get tougher and better from this, it’s worth it,” he said. “This (Texas team) is the best we’ll see. We won’t see anything close to this the rest of the year.” UNM could not claim a lead in any of the three sets against the Longhorns. Although the Lobos were poised enough to tie the

UNM midﬁelder Christopher Wehan defends the ball from Akron’s Richie Laryea at the Lobo Soccer Complex on Saturday night. The Lobos won the game 1-0.
By Isabel Gonzalez “Tonight’s the night! Our quest for a National Championship begins at 7 against Akron! Will you be there?” Thus read a status on the Lobo men’s soccer Facebook page. Though it may be too early in the season to be talking about a national championship, the team certainly got off on the right foot. The No. 5 New Mexico Lobos defeated the No. 13 Akron Zips 1-0 in their season opener Friday night. The match began with both teams rushing to get on the scoreboard. Just eight seconds into the match, Akron attacked
“We really believe we can push on for great things this year and to start of with a clean sheet is a great way to start the season.” Patrick Poblete goalie
and forced goalie Patrick Poblete to make a save. The Zips’ early chance, however, did not shake the Lobos. The team quickly dominated, and less than three minutes into the match Christopher Wehan came from the near side and found Oniel Fisher at the top of the box. Fisher took the shot that gave his team the lead. “It was a good combination with Wehan and I,” Fisher said. “He made a nice pass and I slid it past (the keeper).” By the end of the first half, the Lobos held an 11-3 shot advantage.

Cross Country The New Mexico men’s and women’s cross country teams were ranked 17th and 11th, respectively, in the preseason National Coaches Poll on Tuesday. The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced the rankings. For the men, it’s the seventhstraight year the team is ranked in the preseason poll. It’s the seventhstraight season that the women have received votes in the poll, as well. Only 10 other Division I teams aside from the Lobos have both their men’s and women’s teams ranked in the top 20. The other teams are Arkansas, Colorado, Oregon, Oklahoma State,
Tennis The U.S. Tennis Association announced Friday that UNM’s tennis program will receive $30,000 in USTA Facility Grant funds. According to the release, the USTA Facility Assistance Program looks to provide communities access to safe, appealing and functional tennis environments. UNM just finished building the McKinnon Family Tennis Stadium this summer with $1.2 million in private donations. The grant will help the Lobos to en-
dorse the new courts. “We’re so excited about this grant,” UNM interim men’s tennis coach Bart Scott said in a release. “We want to thank the USTA, especially the facilities team, for this generous grant. With the USTA grant — and, in our opinion, the top collegiate tennis center in our region — the dream of hosting major college, junior, adult and professional tournaments at UNM is shaping up to become a reality.” The Lobos are scheduled to host the 2014 Intercollegiate Tennis Association Women’s Mountain Regionals in October and the 2015 Mountain West Tennis Championships in April.

matches in the first and third sets, the powerhouse Texas squad did not allow the Lobos to take control of any assortment. “You saw why people think they are the best team in the country,” Nelson said. “We held them to .209 hitting. That’s about 100 points lower than they usually do, and they still beat the crap out of us.” Despite the sweep, Johnson Center roared throughout the entire game. There were a lot of burnt orange shirts mixed within the sea of Lobo fans, but the majority of the 3,875 fans seemed desperate for an upset.
Providence, Stanford, Syracuse, Villanova, Virginia and Wisconsin. UNM begins its season with the Lobo Invitational on Saturday.
“The atmosphere was crazy awesome. It didn’t matter what the score was, people were into it,” Nelson said. “It was fun as it’s ever been in here. It was really fantastic.” Nelson said the most consistent player on the roster, Julia Warren, was not up to her reliable standards. Illness may have played a factor in the outside hitter’s rocky performance because the sophomore was not in attendance for the tournament finale against UTEP. “She had a temperature and ended up in the ER last night,” Nelson said. “Everybody just pulled it up. Cassie (House) and
Devanne (Sours) did a great job from the outside.” Sours put together nine kills, the game high, and dug out six balls to assist her team to a 3-0 sweep over UTEP following the loss to Texas. “I think I just had fun and played hard,” Sours said. “We were really tight last game and I think everyone relaxed. Everyone played their own game and played really well.”
start,” and the team’s success is due to being resilient and disciplined. He did add, however, that the game became more difficult than it needed to be. “We needed that second goal. I think if we got that second goal then they would’ve come out a little more and we really could’ve opened them up,” Fishbein said. He said he saw the 20 shots the Lobos took as something positive. Poblete said he also feels positive about what’s coming for his team this season. “It gives us a lot of confidence
going forward,” he said. “We really believe we can push on for great things this year and to start off with a clean sheet is a great way to start the season.” Next weekend the Lobos will host the Lobo Invitational, which will feature American University, UC Riverside and UCLA. UNM will play UC Riverside Friday at 7 p.m. and UCLA on Sunday at 6 p.m.

During the second half the Lobos continued to dominate, but the Zips still craved a goal of their own. Poblete said that toward the match’s end the Zips were pressuring more, but that from left to right the defense of his team was “fabulous.” In the 88th minute a shot came at the Lobo goal, but it was blocked by midfielder Ben McKendry. By the end of the game the Lobos had recorded 20 shots total, outshooting the Zips, who only recorded five. UNM head coach Jeremy Fishbein said this first win was “a nice way to

UTEP edges out Lobos in season opener By Thomas Romero-Salas In the words of head coach Bob Davie, New Mexico football’s first half against UTEP on Saturday was “wobbly.” If that’s the case, then by the end of the game it was a breakdown. The Lobos rallied from a 24-7 halftime deficit to tie the season opener at 24 in the fourth quarter, but their comeback attempt was stopped thanks to three turnovers in the last six-and-a-half minutes. The Miners converted the second turnover, a fumbled punt return by wide receiver Dameon Gamblin, into seven points and held on for a 31-24 victory at University Stadium. “For whatever reason, early in the game we were just tippy-toeing around, just kind of wobbly,” Davie said. “On offense we had a lot of mistakes in the first half, just things that surprise you that happened. Going in you ask if you’re going to be better on defense; the first half, definitely not.” UNM did have one last chance to tie the game after UTEP running back Aaron Jones scored his third touchdown of the night to give the Miners a 31-24 lead. Quarterback Clayton Mitchem, who came in for starter Cole Gautsche after he hurt his hamstring at the beginning of the fourth quarter, drove the Lobos past midfield but was intercepted on third-and-19 to end the game. Davie said Monday that Gautsche will miss next week’s home game against Arizona State. Prior to the injury, Gautsche rushed for a career-high 184 yards on 14 carriers with two touchdowns. “It’s that much difference running the triple. It’s a big difference,” Davie said. “We had some opportunities at the end; it doesn’t change significantly. It’s just the execution in the option game isn’t as crisp.” Offensively and defensively, the Lobos were out of sync in the first half. UNM had several bad snaps from center LaMar Bratton and seemed unable to finish off drives. The defense didn’t look much better in its new scheme as UTEP gained 326 yards, 227 on the ground, in the first half. The Lobos’ miscues led the Miners to a commanding 24-7 halftime lead.

Lobo linebacker Javarie Johnson stands silently on the Lobo sidelines during the last two minutes of the fourth quarter against UTEP at University Stadium on Saturday night. The Lobos lost the season opener 24-31
Jones scored the first touchdown of the game on a 12-yard burst up the middle. Gautsche answered with a quarterback keeper for 68 yards to tie the game at seven-all. UTEP then took control of the game with 17 unanswered points. Miner quarterback Jameill Showers hit a wide-open Jarrad Shaw for a 48-yard score. After a field goal, Jones broke several tackles during a 73-yard touchdown run and the Miners led 24-7. “Just unacceptable performance in the first half,” Davie said. “Their head coach got their guys ready to play and our head coach here didn’t get their guys ready to play. It’s that simple.” In the third quarter the Lobos
came alive. Tailback Teriyon Gipson scored on a 13-yard scamper, and then Gautsche pulled UNM within three points thanks to a 51-yard score. The defense held UTEP out of the end zone when running back Nathan Jeffery was stuffed on fourth-and-goal from UNM’s 1-yard line. On the ensuing possession, Lobo kicker Zack Rogers tied the game in the fourth quarter with a 35-yard field goal. Gautsche injured his hamstring on a 33-yard run on that same drive. The Lobo defense stepped up in the second half and allowed just 120 yards. “We at least had a little fire; at least we had a little emotion. It’s frustrating to watch, but I think we can get better,” Davie said. “I think
we hung in there and we played a lot of guys on defense. We played a lot of young guys.” After the Miners were forced to punt, the Lobos looked well on their way to break the tie. However, on third-and-6 inside UTEP territory, halfback Jhurell Pressley fumbled a pitch from Mitchem and the Miners recovered. UTEP didn’t capitalize on UNM’s mistake and its next drive stalled at midfield. On the Miners’ punt, Gamblin fumbled the ball and UTEP recovered to score two plays later, for the final score of 31-24. “I can say that games like these definitely hurt the most just because you’re right there and you can almost taste and smell and feel the victory,” UNM’s Bratton said. “And just like any moment,
it can be taken away just like that.” As a team, the Lobos rushed 52 times for 410 yards. Pressley was UNM’s second leading rusher with 84 yards on nine carries. Gipson had 71 yards on 13 tries. Gautsche and Mitchem combined to complete five out of nine passes for just 67 yards. UTEP’s Jones rushed for a career-high 243 yards on 22 attempts. Jeffery ran 14 times for 85 yards. Lobo cornerback Cranston Jones suffered an elbow injury and might miss next week’s game against ASU, Davie said. Thomas Romero-Salas is the sports editor for the Daily Lobo.

Lobo defense pulls together in second half By Liam Cary-Eaves
The New Mexico football team showed signs of defensive improvement in Saturday’s season opener, despite an early deficit. Both sides of the ball came out of the gates in sluggish form during UNM’s 31-24 loss to UTEP — but, bolstered by a strong defensive effort, UNM’s second-half play came within striking distance. A botched punt return in the final minutes provided too large a task to overcome. “We had some busts early in the game, which I thought we would on defense,” said Lobo head coach Bob Davie. “We really didn’t get our cleats in until the second half.” UNM had trouble stopping the big play in the first half. On five separate occasions the Miners pulled off plays of 25 yards or more. Missed tackles were key to UTEP’s offensive success.
“We did a couple things on defense OK,” Davie said. “It wasn’t as good as I thought it would be.” The Lobo defense struggled in getting off the field after forcing third downs, in addition to allowing big plays. The Miners converted seven third downs on 10 attempts, and scored each time the team entered the red zone in the first half. “We played a lot of guys on defense. We played a lot of young guys,” Davie said. “Just that one stop can give you enough confidence to kind of jump that thing forward.” In the second half, UNM’s younger players appeared to come out of their shells. The defense responded to just about every call that UTEP sent its way. Sophomore linebacker Dakota Cox was a key contributor in the much cleaner second half, leading the game with 17 total tackles. The team didn’t have the energy and poise needed in
“We definitely came out a lot better in the second half. We just need to have that juice the whole game and have that enthusiasm.” Dakota Cox Sophomore linebacker the first half, Cox said, leading to a lot of the problems that the Miners exploited. “We definitely came out a lot better in the second half,” he said. “We just need to have that juice the whole game and have that enthusiasm.” The first half of a season-opening game could be nerve-racking for any team, but Cox said he didn’t think that nerves were the issue in the first half. “I think it’s just a mental side
where guys just need to be ready to play,” he said. Cox and Davie both said the team didn’t make any adjustments in the second half, but relaxed and played up to its potential. Compared to the first half, the defensive unit looked like a brand new team. The Miners didn’t convert once on third down, and the Lobos held UTEP to just 120 total offensive yards after the halftime break.
“We all got comfortable in the second half,” Cox said. “We stepped it up out there and put up a fight … We need to do that the whole game.” Cox said the team needs to keep moving forward and learn from errors rather than dwelling on what could have been. “We have one, two days, maybe Monday too, to look at it and correct the mistakes,” he said. “We move on and take it as a learning opportunity.” Davie acknowledged his team still has to improve as the season progresses. “It’s one game … two teams that are fighting. Two teams that I think are improving,” Davie said. “It’s one game.” Liam Cary-Eaves is a sports reporter for the Daily Lobo. He can be reached at email@example.com or on Twitter @Liam_CE.
