"The Cougars are 12th, dead last, in Conference USA in rebounding margin. They are a minus 10.8, meaning they are getting outboarded by double digits in every game."...the Miners tend to make these type of teams look great. I challenge them not to get out rebounded tonight.

Blah, blah, blah, blah blah, UTEP players, "we've got to do this, we've got to do that"! Well, just DO IT ALREADY!!!
Everyone knows what you need to do, so just shut up and play ball, do your talking on the court!
You are all talk and no action!!!! Play hard and win at any cost!!! Post season play will take care of itself!
We're tired of the excuses, just go out and win!!!!

I feel the same way, but alot of the time it has to do with Coach Barbee's poor coaching tactics when the miners are on the floor. UTEP was getting on its man-to-man defense against BYU, and yet Barbee didn't have them adjust to a zone defense. Don't just blame the players, look at the coach as well.

Coach B. is a great recruiter, but not a bench coach. Sorry Barbee, but talent won't get it done. You have to teach defense and proper play execution -- THEN you can compete. Until then, you guys will continue to "lose games you should have won" and win close ones that you should have dominated.

Off to a great start:....NOT...37-24 Houston
1st half
One made field goal after the 10 minute mark.
28% from the field
0-9 from 3 point
Culpepper 1 of 6 (3 for 21 over last game and a half).
Rebounding even with UTEP holding offensive rebound edge.
I seriously thought this was an NCAA team at the begining of the year then I was borderline NCAA/NIT
Now it looks like CBI

The coaching Barbee has done is horrible. HE NEEDS TO BE PUT ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK.

I would much rather have a mediocre team with HEART, than what Barbee has brought to El Paso. A bunch of kids who think they're pre-Madonnas ...

Fire Barbee and Let Randall Dickie take over the Caching!

Wow, what a major disappointment this UTEP team is turning out to be!
Players have no heart, and coach Barbee no idea how to use his players!
What a sickening feeling I got watching UTEP against Houston! I am a loss for words!
Totally, totally disgusted with UTEP's lack of effort! Houston is the worst rebounding team in C-USA for crying out loud, yet they out board UTEP?
This is not a team, because obviously they are not playing as a cohesive unit!
Thee was no doubt which team had the superior talent tonight, but try as they may UTEP just couldn't get it done!
What's wrong with the UTEP players?
Clearly, it's the coaching, stupid!!!
Barbee is too stubborn and stupid to make any changes to his lineup! It's not working!
Bench players that don't want play defense or follow instructions!
Moultrie, and Stone are useless!!!
Give Derric Caracter some help!!!!!
