The Return of UTEP’s Money Games
If you ever wondered what would happen when only UTEP football die hards show up to the Sun Bowl to watch the Miners play, here's your answer.....wait for it.....Money Games! That's right, Miner Nation. It's time for the football team to hit the road and make some money for the athletic department since the days of 40,000 fans at Sun Bowl Stadium is just a memory. The latest game added to UTEP's future schedule is a 2012 date with Ole Miss. Kyle Veazey has the story in Sunday's Clarion Ledger. Don't expect this habit to change any time soon. As long as the Miners stay mediocre, fans will no longer consider it a must to watch home games and the team will play a few big money games with payouts of $400,000 or more.
