A New Mexico basketball writer apparently was so fed up with the Lobos' historic loss to Harvard Thursday night, he wrote a farewell column claiming he's been to his last New Mexico men's basketball game.

Dennis Latta, the Loboland.com editor, said he "won't be wrong again" about New Mexico.

"It was a lot easier to take when expectations were lower. Losing was acceptable because UNM had almost always lost when it really counted," Latta wrote on a Rivals.com network site. "You didn't have visions of greatness, only to have them dashed. After the pitiful performance UNM put up against a team that doesn't even offer scholarships, I've given up. Having all five starters back next season means nothing on a team that can just disappear like that. I'd be back to wondering when it would collapse, have a terrible game and lose to an inferior team again."
