A few weeks ago, I predicted the UTEP Men's basketball team would win between 16-18 games this season. I heard good things about some of the new recruits, but had no idea how much talent head coach Tim Floyd had brought to UTEP.
Last night, I was enjoying UTEP's fourth win of the season, a convincing 31-17 win over Colorado State. All of a sudden, I looked up into the stands at the Sun Bowl, and I saw tens of thousands of empty seats.
On Thursday afternoon, former UTEP Senior Associate Athletic Director Brian Wickstrom appeared in studio as a guest on Sportstalk. Wickstrom had just been named Athletic Director at the University of California-Riverside. During the interview, Wickstrom was very candid when discussing the UTEP Men's basketball program.
UTEP sports fans have always reminded me of that person in a relationship afraid of getting dumped by their significant other. Every time we get a high profile coach like Mike Price and now Tim Floyd, fans are always ready to push the panic button.
Arkansas high school senior Hooper Vint has chosen UTEP. Vint had been recruited by the University of Arkansas under former coach John Pelphrey, but narrowed his choices to Arkansas-Little Rock and UTEP. In an interview with channel 5 news in Fayetteville, Arkansas Vint discusses why he chose El Paso and UTEP. Thanks to our old pal John Engleman for the tip.
