EASTERN NEW MEXICO UNIVERSITY GREYHOUNDS
Location: Portales, NM
Division: NCAA Division 2
Conference Affiliation: Lone Star Conference
Major sports: football, basketball, base/soft- ball, soccer, volleyball, rodeo
Comment: Something tells me this team would be the favorite of Balladeer’s Blog’s beloved Guest Commentator George the Whippet since Greyhounds are sort of his cousins. And the women’s teams are called the Zias so that is incredibly cool, too. The broadcasts of the home football games originate in Blackwater Draw, possibly the coolest name in sports on any level.
