Closed the season and covered the spread of
17 1/2 points underdogs. Now the wait of
getting a bite for a bowl spot.

Doubt UTEP would get an invitation. This
team did put up a fight and almost pulled
it out with Tulsa. Since seeing their last
home game in person believed then as now.
UTEP does not deserve a bid.

Don't like that UTEP has the wins to go
because it is still a 6 win and 6 loss
season. Not a winner but a happy to be there
ending.

Miner's, I loved the effort today, way to play hard. Though the outcome wasn't favorable, you played hard and gave it your best. I look forward to supporting you (hopefully live) at the bowl game.
I hope the football Gods send us to a bowl close to ELP; I bet we can get 20,000+ fans to a game in Dallas or New Mexico.
Also wish to congratulate Mr. Price and Mr. Stull on a successful season. We're blessed to have you guys in our corner - your sacrifices are appreciated, and while success hasn't been instant, I'm sure we'll be mentioned with the likes of Boise State and TCU in the not too distant future.
Go Miners!
UTEP was barely getting 20k fans in El Paso...you are kidding right?

I like your optimism, but it's misplaced. Mike Price needs to go, we need an energetic young coach in there.

UTEP played with heart today. This loss was totally on the coaching staff. I agree with chico, the play calling at the end of the first half was a joke. Trying a long field goal with Warren was unacceptable. On the road you take a 7 point lead into the locker room. As for Vittatoe, this was not on him, you try throwing with a sprained ankle.

Actually, the way things are tonight, UTEP will get an invitation. The Big Ten won't have enough 6-win teams to fill its obligation.

Today I saw that coach price would rather lose than play his best players, it's bad when you would rather play favs than, play the best man for the job. You would have to be as blind as Ray Charles to see that Travor Vittatoe is not the best QB on the Miners roster. I'm just saying if I had a QB that made the decision to throw in triple coverage in a key part of a game and get it picked off, I would sit him down, If you played everydown like Mr.Vittatoe you would look great on paper too. It all stinks he might of cost the whole entire team their season,but when your making as much money as coach price do you think he cares?

As much money as Coach Price? Are you kidding? Have you looked at major college coaches' salaries like in the last 20 years? By comparison, his salary is low, and we're lucky to have him. Educate yourself.

Southern Miss beat Houston earlier.

Houston's next game (vs. Texas Tech) is "must-win" for U of H. If TT beats UH, UTEP would take the sixth bowl slot from C-USA.

From starting 5-1 to going 1-5 in their final 6 games to end up 6-6.

Nobody wants this team in a bowl game. The city hosting the bowl would be embarassed to have us.

Price needs to retire. Thank god TV is gone. Dude is a choker.

With all due respect, you are an idiot. The Miners will be in a bowl game. Please take the time to inform yourself of the conferences, their tie-ins, and the teams that are actually eligible.

True. The Miners look set for a bowl game, almost certainly.

Educate yourself, he remunerated rather handsomely after everything is said and done - even when the Sun Bowl doesn't sell-out.

30 quality coaches would die for an opportunity to run that football team.

So, who do you think will be inviting our UTEP Miners.

New Orleans Bowl who should choose a local team and probably
a Florida team or some Southeast USA team.

New Mexico Bowl might be our best shot with the locality
of a 4 hour drive up to Albuquerque. Albuquerque even
has the local casinos who might get an uplift in gaming.
The local restaurants & hotels would get an overnight
stay from travelers plus the state of New Mexico knows
UTEP. The Governor Susana Martinez even attended and
graduated UTEP.

Yep, if any choose us it will be New Mexico. New Mexico
more Texans are coming besides ole Susana. The Texans
to the rescue of New Mexico. Here come the Miners.

Agree. If we lose him then look forward to a return of
the old of 1 or 2 win seasons and losses of 40 points or
more. Don't like saying it but it will probably happen.

Few coaches are such as the TCU coach who turned around
a similar team. Mike Price is ours and decent.

Natalicio can't raise tuitions much any more without an
outcry. Ticket buyers in El Paso won't pay much more
for tickets. Yes, El Paso we are lucky with this Coach. Improvement here would be a new defensive coordinator.
The other teams have figured him out.

Fan support could be better if the free tickets given to
Mexican students of Juarez would attend the games. Here
our local University gives them a huge "Tuition break"
with in-state tuition. They don't support the local teams
in all sports. Come on Mexican students go support the
Miners.

Go Miners!

If they do go to a bowl game with a capacity of at least 30,0000......... The home attendance at UTEP only shows that the attendance at the bowl game will be just ad worse.

If people can't get off their a sses and drive 5-20 miles to the game, how are people going to get off their a sses, pay for gas, hotel, airfare, and higher ticket price to see this mediocre team elsewhere?

Yeah -Stupid people should punish the team for not doing better. Keep them from a bowl game as one punishment.
All the stupid people that never support the team can meet at the Sun Bowl and rip the uniforms off the players as another punishment.
Boy howdy - that will show them that stupid people mean business. Tell the team that stupid people don't support you and know more than you.
Then all the stupid people can march the team over to the administration building and demand they are removed from the school. After all - the stupid people that don't support UTEP are much better and smarter. Yeah - stupid people know best.
Stupid people will really punish these players and do everything to berate UTEP. Yeah man - no bowl game for you guys. Stupid people don't think you deserve to go to a bowl game.
WTF is that all about pendejo. Or should i say idiota.STFU and stay off this forum.
