UNM Makes Me SICK!

It usually takes a lot to make me sick! But UNM is gutting the entire UNM Press operation but is safe-guarding the sports program even when they break the law. Oh my . . . !

I saw the story that Larry Barker/KRQE had on Part 2 of Paul Krebs and UNM paying for people to go to Scotland and have a good time on the taxpayers. Besides the fact that UNM paid about $64,000 in tax money for businessmen and Paul Krebs to enjoy themselves for a week it also it against the law. You see, it is against the law for tax money be used to get donations and that is exactly what Paul Krebs did.


Now supposedly, the interim UNM President and the school didn’t know what Paul Krebs did. Hard to believe but it may be true. But the buck does stop with the President of UNM and if his sports department is running out-of-control, he needs to deal with it.

There is also the question of Paul Krebs breaking the law – bigtime. Right now I don’t see the Albuquerque DA or the Attorney General rushing to prosecute. If I broke the law they would be all over me but maybe there is a new rule exempting university sports departments from not observing the law. The UNM sports department and Paul Krebs must be special people!

Why am I so mad besides the obvious? UNM is firing/terminating a bunch of UNM Press jobs because although UNM Press tries, they aren’t like the sports department and Paul Krebs. Remember, Paul Krebs was the brain trust that arranged for fired coaches to get million dollar golden parachutes. UNM Press could use that $1M!

So again, you go to college to play and watch sports not read, learn, or have anything to do with books. Maybe we ought to see if some of those basketball and football players can actually read? They drop games really well and some get arrested. This might be another skill they could learn. Of course, the only reason Paul Krebs has his job is to get a big paycheck (he gets paid more than the UNM President) and to have cool vacations on the taxpayer. What about this is good?
