    problem is the name wolf/wolves is a completely different mascot. it would be like calling us dogs.

    Why? After all, Lobo is just Spanish for Wolf.

    They can call themselves whatever they want as long as they don't violate any copyright laws... I seriously doubt Nevada would ever do that in a million years... It's the same as arguing the difference between a Bruin and a Bear... Come on man!

    Can you explain how thats like calling us dogs? I don't think it is, like the other poster said it's just the exact translation Lobo is a Wolf. It's not like we're saying to call it perro broad or something, but with that being said I don't think you name it after coach Weir till he puts on the cherry blazer.

    Lol guys I get what you're saying and I understand all your translation, same/same, argument. But just because you're playing on Were Wolf doesn't mean you untranslate our mascot because we're not New Mexico Wolves.

    Good grief! Maybe we should call it Weir’s Gringos.

    lobo

    noun, plural lobos.

    1. the gray or timber wolf of the western U.S.

    Since this conversation has been sparked, can we add Weir Lobos?

    My point being that just because some like the sound of Were Wolf we translate our mascot to fit it. While it's technically the same thing, it's not. But while you're at it why don't we just take the meaning of Weir and call it "The Dam Wolves".

    The alternate point being that a Lobo is in fact a wolf, not a dog.

    may as well be because we're technically not UNM "wolves".

    LMAO If you want to ignore the meaning of the word "Lobo" it can mean whatever you want it to mean in your own head

    A lobo goes "woof, woof, woof!"

    And a lobo might be a wolf, or vise versa. Although I'm not sure all lobos can be called wolfs. Or all wolfs called lobos.

    But that is really not the point. I don't think we should call a UNM Lobo a Wolf. Just as you would not call a NC State/Nevada Wolf a Lobo.

    I vote for "Lobo Basketball". Lobo Basketball is bigger than any one coach.

    My only problem with Weir New Mexico is that it is playing off a slogan that Alford came up with. The We Are New Mexico slogan was his and Neals.

    This is nitpicky... Weir Wolves....It's got a good flow, easy off the tongue, and catchy.
