Here we go again bloomquist making them sound like the best team in the nation. Buckram is the only one who deserves any recogintion in this article. "Good Start" topic is pointless. Three in and outs against a team that had won one game all year. That should happen you would think. "New best" says fewest yards given up in a game this season. They still allowed 30 points in the game and lost. Not once has he ever said how bad this team is. He tries to give good statistics when the team stinks. Terrible!!

Time for new excuses in the next articles. Im sure it will be along the lines of Price "not giving up" or "Utep wants to end season on a strong note."

What happened to Mike Price and his "I am at my best in these situations" he said like four or five weeks ago and this weeks "We will rally around Buckram"?? Talk,talk,talk and nothing but excuses. I will just sit back and get a good laugh at what I read next.

We need a coach who is NOT a players' coach. We need a strict disciplinarian who'll whip this team into shape and then there won't be any excuse list at the end of the season. Price is a good coach. Not a great one, though.

What's wrong with UTEP? The players lack drive and the killer instinct!! They are lions that haven't realized that they can roar. This is a coaching problem!! I like Mike Price and I do think long term he can fit into UTEP but, he need strict assistant coaches that can reach into the hearts and guts of these players and turn them into men with a mission. Statistics are meaningless when you don't win! Ask Donald Buckram whether he would trade 500 yards for 5 wins!!
