There seemed to be an edgeto UTEP this week that wasn't there two weeks ago. Who knows about last week since practice is closed.
More than anything, getting players healthy again seems to have lifted the spirits of the team. Even the only regular (other than those out for the year) not fully practicing, Tanner Cullumber, had a big grin on his face and he jogged around the practice field. Then again, Cullumber usually has a big grin on his face.
By the way, for the second time this year, a five-win UTEP team is a three-point road underdog against a one-win team from Conference USA East. That didn't go well the last time, against UAB.
