    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.

    Wow! Now I know what coming back from the dead or awakened From a coma feels like ! also for me about Miner sports! Been busy with life. Working on my land development in Juarez. Help raising my 3 Grandchildren that are living with us. Danielle is now 14, Heath is 12, & Mickey is 6. E7DE82AE-0897-41CA-9F37-6A0F27ED80AA.jpeg E7DE82AE-0897-41CA-9F37-6A0F27ED80AA.jpeg . I have gotten away from Miner sports. No TV coverage and the tailgating rules that Stull (arrogant, egotistical, self-centered ASS) implemented really did me in. Kids didn’t want to go to games anymore. Who wants to go to your favorite bar and listen to the Miners on the radio. Lmao! Thanks, I and Miner sports needed this. Anxious to coming here regularly to catch up on everyone & everything. Picks Up \m/

    Great to see you again EJP. Grand kids are looking great. Congrats on the Juarez enterprise. So you haven't caught any Miner games on the internet?

    Here is an update on the state of the board.
    1. There are some messages about security when logging in. These can be ignored and will be fixed soon.
    2. Some links aren't working like "contact us". FIXED
    3. There is a nag message about activating Flash. FIXED It was my Flash Blocker.
    Let me know if you notice anything else, please.

    There is a major software update available but I don't want to install it until all the kinks are worked out. And, I don't want to do any major work in the "engine room" until the off season, in case there is trouble.

    Awesome! I'm hoping for an improved FB season this year. Since I live by Cloudcroft we get guests at our airbnb for Bataan every year. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/19585427?source_impression_id=p3_1582931938_djoPbPjwfkPmLUfF
