    Here we go again. Is it Groundhog Day or Back to the Future?
    UTEP 72
    Rice 66
    I was having a conversation with Owl at the Moon on csnbbs, a C-USA forum. He mentioned that it's possible we could meet Rice 4 times this season. He's a classy BB fan.
    ...maybe Rice & UTEP can claim 11&12 and then play our way through to an unprecedented 4th meeting in the Frisco Final [​IMG]

    ** anyway... proud to still be your ONLY FBS win in the last 3 years even though we’re 3-1 against you in the last four years.

    Maybe they are finally learning to finish games off! I believe. Here we go drinking that Orange Koolade.

    Rice has won 6 of their last 8 games since Feb. 1 including wins against UAB, North Texas and Charlotte. ODU and UTEP have been their losses during that stretch. Will UTEP make it a threepeat? I wouldn't bet money on it. As the Bear often lamented, "It's really hard to beat a team three times in a season." Vegas says that Rice will win by 3.
    There doesn't seem to be any local ink on this game yet. I had to get info from Rice Athletics, Here.
    UTEP and Rice have both made the tournament. Prognosticators believe that UTEP will have an easier path forward if we lose to Rice tomorrow. Here is what Pod 3 looks like ahead of tomorrow's games.

    So, it appears that USM and MTSUs seasons have ended.

    Game day. Got my hotspot warmed up for the MinerTV stream. Go Miners.

    Half time. Don't know that I've ever seen so many walks in a half. Are we jittery or is it the stripes?
    Hopefully we can execute some of those plays in the 2nd half. Williams has been off on shot making the last few games.
    I liked that alleyoop attempt from Verhoeven to Williams but Tydus passed it in too high.

    that came out smelling like a rose. And so did our Miners. Let’s hope they can keep it up.
