From what I understand, UTEP doesn't want to pay NMSU more than normal to play here because they relocated.I-10 Rivals NMSU and UTEP
Jans: "Not my decision. We want to play"; but he fails to keep Covid away from program even in self isolation. UTEP fans reaction: "NMSU is better than UTEP. UTEP chicken shit out of playing them!" (totally untrue but spread over social media and message boards (like here)
Terry: Keeps Covid away from the team (which is not easy) and didn't have to leave campus for self isolation, unlike the NMSU aggies, even when El Paso Covid numbers were raging when the season started. UTEP is playing it's schedule but the team show inconsistency from one opponent to the next. UTEP allowing a few fans in the stands to watch. However, UTEP fans "Fire Terry! Fire Senter!".
Please don't tell me Jans has no culpability. This is totally on him despite his BS video on twitter.
So what normally would be a 45 mile drive that cost x is now a trip from Arizona that cost 3x.
I guess the rationale is we aren't giving you 3x the money cause you moved.
