Miners! Good job! We did it. We beat The Bird from USAFA. Last I checked on Sunday night we were up by 6,000 votes. The age old question of which is better, repel or parachute, has been answered. The winner is clearly repelling as witnessed by Paydirt Pete's victory.
Our win brings us to 3-0 in the competition! We have jumped up a spot and are now 4th place! This is great! Good job Miners! Now, we just need to boost up those vote numbers! I have faith that we can do it though.
Our Record as of Week 3:
Losses: 0 (goose egg baby!)
Overall votes: 76,532
ODU is a beast. They have over 300,000 overall votes. I know some of you are worried, but I just want to remind you that UTEP has overcome worse odds. For example, last year's football game versus Houston. Rushing the field? Ring a bell?
We're still in it Miners! Let's keep those votes coming!
Don't forget to get your tickets to this week's home game versus Memphis.
And most importantly!
Don't Forget to VOTE!!!!
