Forget about the polls...it's all a power conference scam and a mind game...REMEMBER THE DON AND REPEAT '66.

Now lets just hope another big name school doesn't come in a swoop Tony Barbee up with a big contract. Its hard to cheer for the Miners after that's happened to the last two coaches we've had.

And you know that the graffiti was done by a miner fan because?

Maybe it was done by an aggie because they saw UTEP getting more attention.

Technically, the Miners lead Memphis by two games, since we own the head to head tie breaker.

Hopefully UTEP doesn't rest on their laurels just because they're now ranked! The only guarantee to make it to the Big Dance is to win the C-USA tourney! Anything short of that, we'll most likely be making plans for the NIT.

Ok boys now that you are getting some respect from coaches around the leauge, it's time you take this game to the next level. You bring only and only your "A" game!!! The hardest part of being on top is staying on top. If you bring it, then this team will be remembered like the 66 team or the sweet 16 team that eliminated top ranked Kansas in the tourney back in the early 90s. This is the year to do it and then do it again next year. But let's do this now!!!

It is fantastic for what the UTEP Miners, Coaches, Assistants, etc. are doing and will continue to improve the basketball program here in El Paso.
Forget about the hype and the rankings, just play ball and win, and win, and win.
Unfortunately just like in '66 we are getting NO respect from anyone and the solution to this is simple, JUST WIN!
Good Luck Miners, our spirit is with you all on your trip.

Why is it that Texas A&M is ranked higher than UTEP?
I pose this question after reviewing the rpi game win/loss vs. the top 50 rpi. UTEP is 1-1 and A&M is 3-6 vs the top 50. It would appear that UTEP has the better record even if the percentage of wins vs losses are the same.
Not to mention that UTEP has a more wins than does A&M.
UTEP has played 2 games and lost one to the top 50 rpi teams, A&M played 9 games and won 3. The numbers speak for themselves. A 50 percent team,(UEP) vs. a 33% team.
Share with me if my logic is incorrect?
