I saw where the CBI was considered "third tier"... it's basically a pick-up tournament...

"Yo, wanna play some ball?"

basically, it's a pay-to-play tournament.

my team was rewarded for a shitty season with an opportunity to continue in the cbi.

might as well win it.

To my knowledge I've never read his stuff.

Wow, just wow. Talk about someone who takes this stuff way too seriously. I know, he was a blogger beat writher with a semi-legit outlet but now he's gone. Reminds me why it is tough to consider "Sports Journalists" real journalists. When the divide between fan-dom vs journalism occurs. They seem to always choose fan-dom.

New Mexico beat writer rage-quits after Lobos’ unexpected loss to Harvard


Quote:
When our team loses, there's heartbreak. Frustration. Agony. But we almost always come back, again and again, season after season.
But sometimes the pain is just too much. Sometimes, we just can't take any more. Such is the case for Dennis Latta, freelance writer for Rivals.com's Loboland and a 33-year veteran of the New Mexico beat. After Thursday night's stunning and, yes, humiliating loss to Harvard, Latta had had enough.
In his farewell column, Latta fires a shot across the bow — or, really, through the hull — of the New Mexico program: "I really thought that the University of New Mexico finally had a men's basketball team that earned the loyalty of their fans." He lists all the virtues of this year's New Mexico team — "real potential," accomplishments in both the regular season and the Mountain West Conference, strong players across the board — but then he undercuts each one of those plaudits with "I was wrong."

So, unlike in an Agatha Christie novel, The Butler didn't do it.
