Haha when was the last time JUTEP was relevant in anything?? UTEP hasn’t been relevant in hoops since 1992. When your men’s hockey club is most successful program you have, then it’s time to drop to D3. We have left UTEP in the dust since we decided to upgrade in athletics. We had the best team in CUSA bb last season and we own UTEP in football since we got serious about athletics. Football has been decent but still way better than UTEP. Next year is a make or break year for out FB coach but if he needs to be replaced, we can pay over a million bucks for our HC and it will attract a good pool of applicants. Being a janitor at a P5 school is still better than the UTEP football job. Nobody wants to go to El Paso. There are many athletic programs out there that could do so much better than UTEP in CUSA and that’s why CUSA needs to give UTEP the boot.


Please keep posting your hilarious... nothing funnier than a fan with delusional tendencies

Ok to all the people that say we have enough talent on this team to win


Compare this team to tony barbees last team... and you will see just how much talent we are truly lacking

Everyone said barbee couldn’t coach just like Terry but barbee had true athleticism on that team..... and basketball players ...

this years team is not even close talent wise to barbees team and that’s what it takes to win c-USA so we are a long way off!!

Barbee's team had a great point guard Julyan Stone, an assist machine who did play in the NBA. The Hawkins hissy-fits with Lathon last season poisoned the point guard play and now they're both gone, Boum is not a point guard and Bieniemy is no Julyan Stone, although I think he's played very well for stretches.

There are way too many games this season with the opponents shooting lights-out. Why has our defense been so bad at times? That's definitely something that coaching should improve, even if we're struggling on offense.

Ohhh no I am not saying that at all ... just saying we are a long way from conference championships
We’re a long way from a conference Championship, if we were still in cusa 2.0. That 2010 season had 8 teams in the top 100 of rpi with 3 around the top 50. Currently we have 4 in the top 100 and only one in the top 50. 8 of our teams are in the bottom 200 as oppose to only 3 back then. I know the rankings metrics have changed but it’s not that hard to realize the overall talent of cusa has taken a nose dive since the last time UTEP won a conference title.

Total 180 play one game after the next doesn't deserve a shot at the championship.

Right NFL NFC East?

Having gone to both UTEP games this weekend, it's my humble opinion that our talent is not overwhelming. We are not athletic, we have some nice pieces and players with 1 or 2 positive traits, but this team would be blown out by Barbee's or BG's teams.
