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.
Five turnovers, blocked field goal returned for a touchdown, one-dimensional ineffective offense, non-existent defense -- not exactly what Head Coach Sean Kugler was expecting in the Miners’ first CUSA matchup of the season.
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.
If one looks back in history, UTEP is limping into October. Sometimes, as with this 2014 season, it’s because the Miners have shot themselves in the foot. Ouch! Limp! Two problems for the football program here:
Despite suffering a 58-3 loss to Louisiana Tech Saturday night, UTEP fans will get some good news Saturday night when the team returns to the Sun Bowl for its annual Homecoming game to host Old Dominion...
Just two weeks ago, the UTEP football team was 2-1 and had one of the best rushing offenses in the nation. New Mexico, Texas Tech, and NMSU had no answer for stopping sophomore Aaron Jones, who led the nation in rushing after the first three weeks of the season...
The UTEP Miners enter C-USA play this weekend with a 2-2 record and a team hoping to erase last Saturday's 58-28 loss to Kansas State. UTEP head coach Sean Kugler spoke about the parity in C-USA's Western Division...
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.
