With apologies to their fans, if not Milli Vanilli, UTEP won't blame it on the rain.
Attrition and execution had much more to do with the Miners' 25-6 loss to UTSA than precipitation in a game delayed twice by lightning, as did a Roadrunners' team hungry for its first win after a brutal non-conference schedule...
Before UTSA's first-ever Conference USA game against UTEP in the Sun Bowl two years ago, the former KVIA-TV sports director had been talking with Roadrunners' officials about what I had thought would be -- should be -- a burgeoning rivalry between the two UT System schools.
Wildman said the UTSA staffers were very clear about their feelings on the schools becoming I-10 rivals, and those feelings were: meh.
Going into its game with the University of Incarnate Word, the UTEP Miners really didn't know much about the Cardinals. But Incarnate Word became flesh and dwelt among the Miners a lot longer than UTEP would have liked.
The hits just keep on coming for Southwest University Ballpark, which will trade it's infield diamond for some extra grass when FC Juárez Bravos take on Monarcas de Morélia of the Primera, Friday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. MDT.
You've seen the bits and pieces, now watch the whole crazy thing. The big hit on Mack Leftwich (did Derek Ibekwe lead with his helmet?), Ryan Metz's touchdown passes, his game-tying TD run, Cedric Lang diving for loose balls and Striking, the Wonder Dog -- it's all here for you!
(LAS CRUCES, NM) -- Metz. El Paso knows that family name. The eminent city historian, Leon Metz, has written much about El Paso's colorful past. UTEP's coaching staff may have to pardon the many El Pasoans now thinking his grandson, Ryan, can help the Miners write a better football future.
