You’ve probably noticed Green Chile vendors hauling in their roasters. Gearing up for Chile season … and it’s finally here. Chile growers say the rain is good because it helped produced a bigger crop earlier in the season and some even say it helped make a better product overall, versus using ground water. The peak time for buying Chile is over the next few weeks.

UNM’s athletic director and football coach are weighing in on whether college athletes should be able to earn money from playing. Right now college players get a full-ride scholarship but don’t get a salary and aren’t allowed to sell their name or likeness.

Any increase in compensation could be tricky for UNM. The athletics department already relies on subsidies from student fees and the university itself.
