Houston is going to go down. Prediction: Miners 34 Houston 27. It will be a very good game.

This game against Houston IS real. Ohh I am hoping for houston to come in overconfident and hoping UTEP plays to prove everyone wrong.

Look ... it is easy to be on the slam wagon when a team is down. Try to MAN UP and support the Miners. Miners and Price know this game means something. So either be a fan...or shut the he|| up.

UTEP 27 - houston 24

I am glad that a school from Conf. USA is in the hunt for a possible BC$ bowl. Now maybe the Conf. USA fans will become as outraged as WAC and Mountain West Fans about the unfairness of the whole process. Why should a team such as Houston be eliminated from BC$ money after losing one game? And a two or even three loss BC$ conf. team (who may not have even won their conference) still be invited? Why should a one loss Houston team play a sixth or seventh place SEC team? Because all those BC$ conferences want to maintain the status-quo and the corresponding monopoly of the money. What a shame.
oh well

I want UTEP to win, but with Houston busting the BCS could bring in a shyte load of money to the conference making C-USA as prolific as the PAC-10 or Big 10. All that money could turn all the teams in Conference USA into total powerhouse football teams. BUT... I still say F**K Houston! DONT COP OUT!!!WIN MINERS!!!!!!!!

The BCS was initially welcomed by the top-tier conferences for the obvious reason: the money factor. That reason alone has corrupted the notion of fair play, and has created a system of "elites" that has led to a second-class identity the so-called mid-level and lower-level schools. It is politically influenced and politically enriched system. For that reason it gives me immense pleasure when the Boises, Fresnoes and Hawaiis stick it to the previleged elite schools of the country.
Since the "power conference schools" get to show their teams in every bowl of the country it should be of no surprise why they get the top recruits.
That is the major reason why schools like UTEP keeps getting trounced by Texas-Austin and Kansas: the existing huge recruiting disadvantages.

The BCS system enjoyed by the top conferences needs to come into closer scrutiny for the betterment and the equality of conferences.

UTEP has no chance in this football game. I mean if Houston can knock off Texas Tech 29-28 and Texas Tech lose to Texas 34-24 in the humidity of Austin. No more excuses. Prediction: Houston 64 Utep 7.

If I remember correctly, when UTEP beat BYU in 1985, BYU was ranked in the top 10, and poised to possibly repeat as National Champions. The WAC (which they were both members of) was riding high, until BYU came to El Paso for an October game. BYU lost, and cost themselves and the WAC a lot of prestige. A few years later, the Mountain West was born sans UTEP. Could lightening strike twice? Could UTEP play spoiler for not only Houston, and Conf. USA, but the whole BC$ busting argument?

What the heck are you all smoking, UTEP is not going to win. I am a miner fan, but I am realistic. With Price as coach this year they will be lucky to go 4-8 and I guarantee they will NOT win this one. Houston 63 UTEP 3. FINAL SCORE. SO SHUT UP!!!! and stop whining now and coming up with excuses.

Houston 50 Utep 29 (most points come in garbage time in fourth quarter)

Houston runs away early with this one. The Utep defense cant match up.

BYU was ranked # 1 and Steve Young I believe was Quarterback, eitherway it wouldn't be good for UTEP. But no fears here. UTEP will not be able to pull this one off, the offense can't get started and there is no defense, so Houston will have its way with UTEP.

1985? Basketball champs 1966? That was eons ago.The reality is NOW. Houston will trounce UTEP even though UTEP has the homefield advantage.

With all the accolades relating to facilities, stadium, basketball court,etc., the coaching staffs need to be better paid, better rewarded, better motivated to create a winning atmosphere.
The business community needs to be more involved as true Miner Boosters.

Otherwise Miner athletics will remain in a wishwill state of mind...and the more gifted athletes will continue to sign up with USC, OREGON, Texas @ Austin, etc.

Robbie Bosco was the QB. I think I spelled it right.

UTEP was in worse shape than what it is now. We were used to one win seasons. Facilties and players are much better now. So that eons ago thing doesn't work. That's why they play the games.
