The New Mexico Lobos have moved to Las Vegas during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Nicole Auerbach, the state of New Mexico won’t allow the Lobos to host home games, and that’s required them to pull up their roots and move. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Where have they gone? Sin City, my friends! That’s right. The Lobos just up and left Albuquerque and headed to Las Vegas.

I love the move. If New Mexico won’t let the Lobos play football, then they should absolutely leave the state.

I understand that governments have to do what they think is best. We all get it. There is a pandemic consuming the globe and sports at the moment.

At the same time, colleges around the country have moved mountains to make sure the college football season happens.

If New Mexico won’t help the Lobos get on the field, then the MWC team has to get the hell out and go elsewhere.

That’s exactly what they did, and I couldn’t be more supportive of the decision.

Drastic times call for drastic measures. When things settle, the Lobos can return. Until then, they will be locked and loaded in Sin City.
