Sorry about the long absence, but PicksUp is back on solid footing and ready for the long haul. We now have a long term corporate sponsor who believes in UTEP athletics and is enthusiastically supporting us. We can now cover costs without digging into our personal wallets. The forum is going to look dated for a couple of weeks as we trade out the old images for new and get our social networking up to snuff. Senior Associate AD, Jeff Darby, will be feeding us photos as time goes on so we can stay up to date. Many older posts will be deleted. Feel free to browse through the older stuff and advise what to keep. A forum is all about the members so please give plenty of advice. PicksUp is meant to be fun and a place to express yourself beyond UTEP sports. You can tell everyone about yourself and your passions and put up links and pics. The membership of the forum is restarting at 25 hardcore UTEP fans. You know who you are and are familiar with everyone here because they have been on the message boards for years. And, no trolls. Of course, new members are always welcome. The moderators are paying attention. If you have concerns, we are here to help. So, thanks for coming back, please spark up a lot of conversation and be patient with us as we get the old girl back in shape.
