Full story: El Paso Times

Nice to see they won again! They should be able to make it three in a row against tulane if they keep playing this way. Was worried they may have a let down after getting a huge win on wednesday but definately not the case. Way to stay strong and keep the momentum going. Like the article said,they are right smack in the middle of this conference now.

Road wins are a key to success in almost assuring a conference title they will need about four or six of them and the big test comes against UAB next Saturday, fortuantely they'll be a rematch at seasons end in El Paso but if UTEP prevails next Saturday, "WATCH OUT" they could go all the way.
UTEP breaking Memphis 64 conference game winning streak and winning for the first time at UCF could be signs that UTEP's luck is changing but time will tell at seasons end just keep guards up and hope that Texas AM dont come and steal the coach with a more $$$ offer because history can repeat itself when things get going good for UTEP.

Three in a row does sound good. I think winning against Tulane poses a different challenge for UTEP. Despite the Green Wave's record, it'll be a big win for the Miners to take into UAB. I'm gonna go out on a limb: Wednesday's game against Tulane is a must-win. ... nahh'm (f)uckin' wit chu.

I'd rather see Moultrie at the 2 and bring Portalatin in to play the 3 with Caracter and Britton than see Gordon. He is just taking up space. When you put Stone and him out there its basically 3 on 5 offensively..

thats the wrong attitude..I hope they do come knockin..that will mean UTEP had a successful season...probably advancing in the big dance...the key to all this is to have a good A.D. one that can find the next great coach and I think UTEP has one..

So if UTEP has a successful season then you are satisfied that UTEP's coach goes elsewhere and UTEP starts back on the bottom where they normally are.
Look what happen to Billy Gillespie for been greedy he had to settle for mega bucks and a bottle of booze, but wheres the NCAA Championship Trophy?
Had he syated at UTEP without question he could have won a trophy like that but he chose to go where the green and greed are in concert with higher standards of excellence but no guarantees of anything.

Don't kid yourselves. There are no loyal coaches like Haskins left. Maybe Joe Pa at PSU, but loyalty is out the window when the big $ are at stake... You'd take the promo too!

You're Right, there are no loyal coaches like Haskins, Haskins did leave UTEP once for Detroit but came right back to El Paso.
I think Billy Gillespies real destiny was with UTEP
but the evils of money and greed, success and failure is one big gamble that could be a costly mistake.

I feel in any profession the objective is to go as far as you can. UTEP is what they are and Bob Stull realizes this. He is basically the GM if you parrallel the situation to a pro team. As long as he can continue bringing in hungry young coaches UTEP will have success more often than not. Why would I want to hire someone that is satisfied with where they were in life. This is America, founded on the dollar and survived by the dollar. Its OUR way.

There is no loyalty outside the family.Some would say Haskins was crazy for not taking the money at a different school. His values were definitly not the same as most. Americans are socialized and rewarded for kicking sand in faces and moving up in pay scale and gaining POWER!!
