UTEP football's looming quarterback battle just got more interesting.

It ain't going help if he doesn't have a line in front of him. He'll be too busy running for his life to pass the ball. OK, Price, get off your duff and build a team. Last chance.

Coach Price is a great person from all accounts, but he has failed so far at building a consistently decent team at UTEP. He has had so many talented players some of which seem so have regressed during their time at UTEP. I don't care what Price says his teams are undisciplined and it shows on the field. I don't know how many chances he will get but it is time to step up or step off.

I hope this young man turns out to be a good quarterback since it seems that he has already won the position. He has certainly shown that he is a winner at the JC level.

Very well put. This isn't basketball, you can't just recruit a player to win games, you have to build an entire team. It is the coaches job to build the team and make players play for him, and from his degrading comments in other pieces, it seemed Price was willing to publicly degrade his own players just to sign a recruit, and personally I don't know how a player could respect and want to play for that kind of coach.

Mike price, Isn't he the guy that took the strippers to the room at alambama and one of the ordered one of everything from the hotel and charged over 1000 dollars to the Alabama credit card. He ain't recruiting players he is recruiting company. This is garbage he needs to go. We need a Coach and some players.

Updated on rivals.com . Even with this recruit Utep is ranked 12th out of the 12 teams in conference usa in recruiting. Also ranked last and have the least amount of commitments with 11 in the conference. Having lost the most seniors then any other d1 school you would think there would be some more urgency to replace them. Price really needs to get it together because that is unacceptable and should be unexcusable. I have no idea why Stull continues to settle for mediocraty and allows this while all these other schools are trying to improve their programs and doing a much better job recruiting.

Funny how Mike Price said "we haven't had to recruit a quarterback from the Junior College ranks before".....that statement says it all....

Coach, you have to recruit at the Junior College ranks for "all" positions unless you are able to recruit blue chip freshmen players that can come in and instantly contribute to the success of the organization. Until UTEP gets to a level of powerhouses like Alabama, Ohio State, USC, or an Oklahoma, keep recruiting at the Junior College level for "all" positions.....

Price has a history of recruiting talented head cases. I hope this one doesn't fit that description. But he also believes he can win with just a quarterback. The only decent offensive coordinator he has had in his seven years was his oldest son who is now at Memphis (and didn't he do a good job this year). The head coach should let his coordinators operate and shut up, but Price can't do either. The problems stem not from a lack of talent on the field, but rather a lack of talent at the coaching level. For a college coach to win he needs to be able to recruit, both assistant coaches (who must also be able to recruit) and the players. Price can't do either, and apparently he is a terrible manager. I agree that bad mouthing his current players in order to recruit others is not conducive to building confidence or a better team. What all this comes down to is that there is only one answer. FIRE PRICE NOW. And if Stull won't do that then FIRE STULL NOW TOO! It is becoming increasingly obvious that Price is there only at Stull's forebearance, and if Natalicio won't fire both of them then fire her as well.

Time and competition is passing up Mr. Price and Mr. Stull. They both were good in their day, but like I said time has passed them by. UTEP needs an upgrade, but it probably will not be the 2011 football season for sure. A wise man once said, "What you permit, you promote". Get it. Change here is REQUIRED. The rest is elementary my dear fan.

I'm not going to bag on the kid...but UTEP's choice in coaches for major sports should raise eyebrows.

Price: See comments above. At a charity golf function, hanging out with strippers, abusing the University credit card, and then has the cajones to sue because he got fired? Gimme a break...UTEP hired him less than a year later...

Floyd: Accused of making cash payments to a player...program under NCAA investigation and subsequent sanctions...UTEP hires him less than 1 year later....

Yes, folks deserve a second chance...but are these good examples for the children of the community? Good examples for the University, which is struggling for respectability?

I don't think there was any question Price was guilty. And he didn't sue the school, he sued the fine purveyor of truth, Sports Illustrated, and won not because he was innocent, but because he wasn't proven guilty, and SI didn't want to pay the legal bill to drag the thing out in court. Floyd is a whole different story. The issue is how do you get rid of the leach Price who is unquestionably weakening the body as he gorges off the blood of the school. STULL FIRE PRICE NOW. NATALICIO FIRE STULL NOW. Cut your losses and move on madam. Take the chance on an up and comer, or move down at least one division and give the student body the chance to see a winner, or even better yet, give up football entirely.

This kid is a former South Hills player and is only 6-1?(He must be pretty good)
I thought the min Height for the Huskies was 6-3.
(SHHS is better known for baseball players like the Giambi brothers and Tommy Lee from Motley Crew, but they always had a huge line up on the gridiron.)

We need him to recruit some of his SHHS and Mt SAC. alum and help build this UTEP Line. Both Offense and Defense.

A WR or TE wouldn't hurt either.

Good height for QB should be minimum 6'3, speed, agility, brains to read defense, good arm and GOOD COACHING. Remember the QB needs to grow as an athlete which is something I don't think UTEP want to do... is coach. GIVE YOUR LOCAL TALENT A CHANCE!!

Haha so true, there is no local talent but more than talent there is no committment from athletes. They are unmotivated, mediocre, and oblivious individuals.
