Sportsmanship Has Reached An All Time Low

Elizabeth Lambert is a college football defender playing for New Mexico in the Women’s Mountain West Conference college tournament. In the game against Brigham Young University (BYU), things got a little rough with Elizabeth. Things got so rough that she earned the nickname Elizabeth “cheap-shot” Lambert. Seriously, words can’t describe what she has done. So, here’s the video of the event: [Link]

Watch this video and tell me if you have seen any greater violation in college sports this year.  While many players have been suspended from football and basketball in the last year for unsportsmanlike conduct,  this video of the Ladies BYU vs New Mexico takes the lead for most blatant abuse of sportsmanship in college, including LaGarrette Blount of Oregon during his post game cheap shot.

New Mexico has suspended their soccer player for several plays in a Mountain West Conference semifinal that have drawn some unwanted attention to the tournament. Elizabeth Lambert, a junior defender, is shown in video highlights throwing elbows, taking out BYU players at the legs and finally yanking BYU forward Kassidy Shumway to the ground with a tug to Shumway's ponytail.

Talk about "Lack of Institutional Control!"


  1. Duane,
    What kind of firestorm would have transpired if that thuggery was inflicted by a male athlete? And I'm sure you know what else I'm thinking. Could you imagine? What a double standard!!!

  2. That's why I referenced LaGarrett Bount, planning to track this one. But as bad as she was, she was provoked often as if they knew she would react. Look at the little subtle things done in many of the clips right before her violent reactions.
