Eight days to kickoff. If ever a college football team needed a reason to leave the past behind, it is this edition of the UTEP Miners. Fans in Orange United need it, too.
There's a hole of regret, right here in my orange heart.
Searching for stability, UTEP coaches are likely to rely on multiple QBs to control the game clock, move the down markers, avoid turnovers and protect a defense rebuilding in the secondary.
