Sean Kugler was as good as his word. After getting thrashed, 55-3, at Louisiana Tech, the Miners head coach promised changes in lineups and procedures. There were, and UTEP beat Old Dominion in its centennial homecoming game, 42-35.
What Louisiana Tech did to the UTEP Miners Saturday looked worse than what Kansas State did the weekend before. "Blowout" doesn't begin to describe it. Miners head coach Sean Kugler acknowledges every aspect of the Bulldogs' 55-3 win. He also acknowledges that responsibility lies mainly with him.
The list of things Sean Kugler believes his team is doing well is lengthy, and he has the stats to back it up. But good stats are just symptoms of something else he hopes his Miners are catching -- something Kugler knows UTEP's opponent Saturday caught a long time ago.
UTEP RB Aaron Jones had 147 yards and the Miners held the ball for almost two-thirds of the game; but in the end, an explosive Texas Tech offense and solid defense left UTEP thinking about what might have been in its narrow 30-26 defeat.
If you heard the Chivas-Cruzeiro game here on Team 600 ESPN, you heard everyone's surprise late in the second half when Cruzeiro's Ricardo Goulart suddenly blasted the ball from his own half of the field toward the Chivas net.
It was jaw-droppingly ugly. Unprecedented. Across the country, Brazil fans cheered their team on expecting that "six" would be the number of world titles they'd own, not the goal-differential. But watching Brazil lose, 7-1, to Germany was a nightmare they'll never forget. One look at their faces will tell you that.
