Yoda-ling: UTEP’s Price Challenges Miners, Fans: ‘There Is No Try’ [VIDEO]

UTEP head football coach Mike Price might be a little loopy from the medication he’s on for a slight respiratory infection, but he’s still effective when he channels his inner Yoda.

He also knows a good beat down when he sees one, and he saw one administered by his Miners last Saturday. UTEP downed Conference USA foe Tulane, 44-7, ripping the Green Wave in all three facets of the game — offense, defense and special teams.

But the Mountain West’s Colorado State Rams come to town for homecoming Saturday at 6 p.m. MDT, and with both teams sporting 3-3 records, there’s no reason to get cocky.

Getting in the media’s face — literally — to get people out to the game? That’s a different story, bringing to mind another veteran leader.

First, Price reviews the Tulane game…

Price talks more about managing the game with a big lead against the Green Wave and begins to discuss Colorado State…

Finally, Price talks about the Miners against the Rams, then proceeds to go into the assembled media for an old-fashioned pep talk, exhorting El Paso writers and broadcasters, as did Yoda: “Do or do not. There is no try…”

Ah, yes. Use the force, UTEP fans…
