I'm thinking no less than 45k. Our O-line should be the best this team has ever had. I just hope our defense is up to the task. (as always)

I admit I kind of checked out on the football team, so please take this as a sincere question.

Why would we think the O-line is going to be the best we have had?  I have no actual idea what their talent level is.  I only know that under the Coach Kugler system, the O-line is required to absolutely dominate the opposing D-line to impose our will upon them.  We were spectacularly unable to impose our will offensively upon anyone, and that was with the best RB in the league -- one of the best in our history.

Certainly if the play calling no longer advertises what play we are going to run every down that will make the O-line's job a lot easier.  But supposing we maintain the same mentality as previous years -- "Hey Defense, we are going to run between the tackles this down.  Try to stop us."  Why would we expect to see better results this year?   Do we have underclassmen or incoming JC players that are about to step up that we think can impose our will on a defense that knows what we're going to do?

Regarding the 45k number, we better hope UA travels really well.

I just wonder how good A. Jones replacement will be. I'll be at the game to find out. I haven't given up on the football team, yet.

That's a good game to sell tickets, if tickets could be magically advertised through the media. We all know that marketing is not UTEP's strong suit when it comes to athletics.

He is going to a community to college so that he can play.  He will be able to play next year, then come out with two years left, since he will be able to get this year back, due to the amount of playing time he had at UTEP.  Smart choice on his part.
