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.
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.
UTEP RB Aaron Jones had 147 yards and the Miners held the ball for almost two-thirds of the game; but in the end, an explosive Texas Tech offense and solid defense left UTEP thinking about what might have been in its narrow 30-26 defeat.
Don't look now, but the team that most thought would be dead in the water after getting rid of three key players is on a four-game win streak. So, here's a short music video saluting the UTEP Miners as they try to stay Steady At The Wheel.
