    Will do us as much good as beating them 50-10. Sure, Iíd prefer 50, but UTEP has 85 scholarship FBS players and theyíre in our division. Every week teams lose games like the one weíre about to play.

    Iíll be happy with a win.

    Re: 10/26 @UTEP Game

    As someone mentioned lowly/crappy Bowling Green beat Toledo. Such WTF upsets happen weekly.

    I personally can't relate to the mindset that causes players(teams) to go into a game like this flat. I, and most of the other guys I associated with, was like a shark smelling blood in the water...attack! without mercy, without remorse. When we had a weak-ass team next on the schedule all week in practice our coaches had to TRY to keep us calm. We couldn't wait to get at 'em, to humiliate 'em, to hurt them, if we could. Like sharks! But...most kids are not like that today, which is part of the pussification of America. But, that's another story for another time.

    Anyway, hopefully, the Dawgs will show up and do enough to get a nice win, then move on.

    UTEP's "Top Plays" last week against FIU. Not too many impressive top plays.

    Agreed. BUT.....that very last Pass play for the UTEP TD was beautiful. Beautiful throw by the UTEP QB.

    Yet another ESPN3 game, so once again an ESPN College Extra game.

    DirecTV hasn't posted its schedule on the guide yet, but that should happen by Thursday based on the last few weeks.

    Hope their ESPN3 production is good. Rice and FIU are the worst.

    Iím not sure I buy into the belief that Holtz is going to all of a sudden play aggressive. I think the players are playing aggressive and because theyíve been successful Holtz is going along for the ride for now. Case in point, it was Akimís individual aggressiveness that squashed a few USM possessions. As a result the team played with confidence. If you all remember until the pick 6, USM had the ball and was going to try to drive to either win or prolong the game. Holtz didnít orchestrate the pick 6 either. Donít be fooled by conditional changes to whatís been the norm. Holtz is going to resort to playing it safe soon enough.

    Re: 10/26 @UTEP Game

    If both teams bring their "A" game we should win by at least 3 TDs, something like 42-21. Any other iteration of the level of play will, of course, cause the final score to swing wildly from:

    Tech "A" game 52 UTEP "B" game 16
    Tech "B" game 27 UTEP "A" game 20

    If we only bring our "C" game, we will likely lose.

    I hope we donkey-stomped 'em! Beat 'em 100-0! I still remember those jerkweed Uteppers posting on our board when they got invited to CUSA over us. I never forget, and I never forgive.

    Re: 10/26 @UTEP Game

    Of the 21 pass attempts by JíMar this game, about a third of them were throws 5yds or less of the line of scrimmage. That seems to be a bit less than the norm for us this season. Glad we were able to go more down field which I associate with being more aggressive offensively. Of course being able to do so depends on factors like pass protection, what the defenseís scheme is, receivers getting open, QB finding the open receivers, etc. Maybe it was more of a ďtake what they give youĒ and ďif it isnít broke then donít fix itĒ game plan worked the majority of the game.

    Re: 10/26 @UTEP Game

    The jury is still out on this team. Seems like they are presenting evidence of being championship caliber, but more testimony is needed:

    They have won ugly games against lesser opponents on the road.
    They have properly disposed of an awful opponent at home.
    They have shown resilience in beating a formidable opponent at home.

    Now they need to show they can dominate a lesser opponent on the road. If they "pick up where they left off" instead of "starting over at square one" against UTEP, it would be another piece evidence. We have seen teams under Holtz "play down" to the opponent in the past so this would be something else different.
