Take I-10 West to Las Cruces, take I-25 North to Albuquerque, stadium is on the right. Look for lights. Socorro Springs in downtown Socorro is the place to eat on the way. Beats telling you to take Suthwest Airlines through Houston to New Orleans, doesn't it?
On the serious side, two weeks ago Bob Stull told me athletic directors don't have any say on bowl destinations. I think he wasn't telling the truth. He'll never admit to how all this came down, but one way or another he got together with some other power brokers and pulled enough strings to get UTEP in a bowl fans could drive to even though that involved at least two conferences breaking multipe contracts.
This comes on the heels of hiring Tim Floyd, which came after hiring Tony Barbee, which came after hiring Doc Sadler, which came after hiring Billy Gillespie. In between, he raised enough money to build the Durham Center and the Foster-Stevens Basketball Complex.
Right now Bob Stull's star is about as high as it can get. He likes Mike Price, by the way, something to keep in mind in the next month.
