Let’s Talk New Mexico 8/7 8am: This summer has marked big changes in the landscape of college athletics. From the NCAA allowing student-athletes to earn income based off of their name, image, and likeness, to major programs like the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma moving conferences, college sports is now in a new era. How will this new terrain affect schools like the University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University? And what do the rising number COVID-19 cases mean for practices and games? On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’ll be discussing what plans our state-run universities are making and how they are preparing to compete now and in the future.
And we want to hear from you. Are you a season ticket holder to sporting events at UNM or NMSU? Are you a current or former student athlete who has opinions on the new revenue stream for players? Are you concerned about the financial impact of these changes and how your favorite local college plans to adjust to them? Email us at LetsTalk@KUNM.org or call in during the live show.
