Listed below are links to weblogs that reference UTEP: Chance for winning season now:



According to ESPN there are actually 4 games remaining in the regular season which gives the Miners an even better chance of finishing with a winning record! GO UTEP!!!

what about the CBI or collegeinsider tourney this young team would benefit from extra march games?


All that careful calculating and you don't even know the Miners have 4 regular season games left, lol!

I like the insight Joe. UTEP has always played Memphis tough no matter if it's at home or away. A win against a team like Memphis means a lot young team like the Miners because they now know what they are capable of and should hopefully set the bar high for themselves going into next year.


I think we can go 3-1 down the stretch with a loss at UCF, that gets us 2 games over .500 heading into the CUSA tourney, hopefully we can get one there and maybe end the season at 17-15...that would not be bad at all considering I thought we would be lucky to win 10 games all year. The UTEP optimist in me says we can get at least 2 in the tourney based on our seed. If we can get to the 6th seed, I think we'll have a decent shot to do damage. Big game this Wed against USM, hopefully there's a good crowd at the DHC. And please Joe, don't tell me you overlooked the UCF game. You get an ESPN "C'MON MAN!"

No one will want to play the Miners in the CUSA tourney as they are a dangerous, nothing-to-lose team. Should be fun to watch, winning record or not.


We saw the Memphis game out here in AZ on tv. UTEP beat Memphis on Memphis'floor on a night when Memphis was playing to get a "good" seed in the NCAA and playing for the lead in the conference and at time when UTEP was not at its best game, without its head coach all week, in front of 17,000 wannabe yokels. UTEP out gutted them, outcoached them, out played them. Nope, we out here disagree with this 2-1, 3-1 stuff. I think Tim Floyd has proved his point with this kids, just like Haskins did to his teams. With Gabe's leadership, I think this team can now beat anybody in the conference and it can give the dance a run if it gets in. I would not like to be a number 4 or 5 seed team playing the Miners on a neutral court to start the dance. GO MINERS !!! !!!

I couldn't even fathom what was happening or why. All I knew was that a plane flew into the tower. I didn't know details.
