Good win for the team last Saturday, but Kugler has pulled this stunt before and goes right back to his vanilla flavored run offense (1st-run, 2nd-run, 3rd-lateral screen, 4th-punt. 4th quarter down by two scores: Put in Kavika) and ODU is better than UTSA.


Norfolk Division of the College of William and Mary (former name until the 1960's) 35

They went from a bad name to that of a trucking company. What gives?

The one of the nicknames for Virginia is Old Dominion.  The trucking company was founded there.  So (obviously) was the university.

Thus endeth the lesson.


I know Lieb. I was being facetious. You know, a little jab on the ribs to them.

Thank you.

In the most respectful way and in the spirit of true debate, how fucking stupid does he think we are?

1) There is no "national" level of discussion about players leaving early. It's a fact of life coaches in his position live and deal with. Man up and just say "I gambled with some scholarships on a few players and got taken to the cleaners!" Damn your ego, Floyd!

2) Osborne is out this year. He gambled on him as well and now he and UTEP fans hope he comes back next year.

3) Rebuilding?! Rebuilding? He will be in constant rebuilding mode because he gambles on players who have none, zero interest in taking college courses and just want to play basketball in hoping to play at least in Europe. The few players that are here over three years are no where near ready to take UTEP to another level much less the NCAA.

Quality my ass.

VP Sports had them last year. Call 845-0777 and speak with either Deb, Chris, or Don Van Pelt. Tell them you want the Kugler TWC hat and hopefully they either have some more in stock or they can make one for you.
The Mine / UTEP Basketball Luncheon

Well... I went

Normally these things sell out, but there were a lot of empty seats in the building. That was disappointing.

So, I thought it started off great, because Keitha Adams came over and talked to me for just a brief moment. She made my day. If I wasn't married and I was her type, I would ask her on a date. That girls personality is something else.

Anyway, she got up 1st and talked about some of the kids & coaches. They are expecting another competitive season and there is no doubt her team will not disappoint. Then Floyd got up and was his usual southern self. Which means he likes to tell stories and talked about how he loves Keitha as well, the quality of kids on his and Keitha's squad, and he introduced CJ Cooper as a new assistant on the team as well as the usual suspects. I did like how he talked about Braswell being the head of recruiting especially since he was out recruiting and not at the luncheon. He said he was responsible for most of the new talent on the team. The two I am aware that are his are Tim Cameron & Adrian Moore. For those who went to the Orange/White game saw these kids have very good upside. He talked about the kids on the team with Willms, Thomas, Jones, & I think Flaggert sitting in the crowd.

He also talked in detail that he is very aware of the epidemic of kids leaving schools for other schools or the NBA. McSwiggan, Hunter, & Hamilton were his prime examples. He mentioned how this is a national issue and coaches from all over are communicating to try and do something about it. That conversation also lead him to being effected the most that he has not taken UTEP to the NCAA tournament. He said this has been his biggest challenge especially since every school he has been has not only had major impacts, but has taken them all to the dance multiple times. He also said that he will be at UTEP for good. He has chosen UTEP to be his last school and will retire here. I took that as he is not giving up and has to prove that success will come to UTEP with recruiting quality kids as apposed to pushing the envelope with troubled youths (a la Southern Miss, NMSU, & other fly by night programs).
He did talk about his team being youthful, but they will be competitive despite being ranked 9th in the conference. He claimed Paul Thomas as the most improved player, our back court being very strong, and talked about how Jones & Willms will need to step up. In a nut shell he basically challenge those two to be the difference with Willms getting over his health and Jones getting over his youth.

I hope I didn't forget anything. If I did, I hope someone who went chimes in.
