The Houston Cougars will come into Wednesday's game with alot of confidence. They pulled the win at the Don last year and will have that in their minds coming in. It's important that the Miners keep that same mentality that they've had the past 5 games. Go Miners!!

Oh my oh my! I was impressed watching UTEP on channel 7. Good job channel 7 on broadcasting the game! I was in my mid teens when channel 9 used to broadcast Miner games. Man were those games awesome! Hardaway, Foster, and others kicked booty. Is it possible that the Miners can win another conference championship? It was interesting to see how young Polk, Moultrie, Caracter, and other Miners look on television. Only Williams seemed like a grown man; he played like it too! I am soo disappointed at Briton. He is a big boy but plays soft. Hey, get your head out of your behind and play to your potential! Briton always seems scared to be in the game. Come on big B, you are a huge man, so play like a big boy! Lay off the junk food and you might have a NBA future. Wake up big B! Go UTEP!!!!!!!!!!

It's so easy to talk trash on the internet like you do. I wonder if you have the guts to say all this stuff in person. You can meet me at the DHC today at the south doors between 2 and 6 pm. See you there!(doubt it). CB

Mr. Briton, although I don't agree with the way the "fake hardaway" phrased some of his sentiments, one might care to take an honest personal self inventory on ones self, with all due respect. See you at The Don
Great job nonetheless guy! Hang tough!

UH is a good team on a roll right now. They want to get back in the race they thought would be theirs this year. UTEP has to continue to defend and rebound. Big Miner fan base in Houston! Go Miners!

This game has me worried, it was too easy in Houston. Coogs won't give in though. If you all win, it will be because of inside game. Wish we had the community support you all show for the Miner's.
