The Mine / Re: Top 20

I think UTEP will get a couple of votes this week.  Colorado St got one last week and UTEP is #4 on CBS rpi ratings right now.
Which year was it that were in a similar situation with about 8 games in 10 days and we came from about 18 behind to beat Ohio State? We wound up ranked #4 in the nation I think. It was in the 80s or early 90s.

Of course we got beat by a crappy conference foe later on and lost the high ranking.

The crappy conference foe that year was a game at Colorado State.

Roy Robertson Harris

Honorable Mention to Jimmy Musgrave, whose open field tackle against Larry Rose III might have been our play of the year.

Well Coach Kug has done better than Coach Price. Considering the circumstances.

Go Miners...

Kugler has started moving the furniture. Coaches Stoker, Higgins and 3 others have reportedly cleaned out their desks. Will that put our bowl hopes in the dumpster?

I'm all about Higgins taking a hike. We need more creative play calling instead of that predictable crap. Stoker was only effective during the later part of conference play. His 1st year was obviously a bust and I don't think we can hold that against him, but I think it is a good call.

We have the defensive talent to do great in CUSA and we can't seem to get it until the second half of the season. The 4-2-5 is difficult and only works when you have corners and safeties that have superior talent. You have to judge a coordinator on the body of work and the body of work just doesn't cut it. Screw this "bend don't break" theme. Don't bend. Play tough, hard, and do your job. The Stoke D may have worked at his previous school, but it doesn't work at this level.
I stand by Kuglars decision and hope he is able to pull it off next year, because his desk will be cleared if he doesn't get this train moving forward.

They are short 5 teams with at least a 6-6 record or better because of all the bowls that have been added.  If Texas upsets
Baylor, then UTEP is definitely out. 

Saturday's results will determine which 5-7 teams get to play.   :o

I don't think there are too many bowls out there that will be salivating to take a 5-7 UTEP team.  I'm sure there are other 5-7 teams they'd take first.

We are seriously too beat up to go bowling.  I don't think we should go.  But I'm not a player.  Especially the seniors....they want another game.
