Xpat ... It looks like he's in the process of building an addition to his stadium. He just needs to break up some rock first....

I love this picture -- especially with the caption: "The Miners have suffered through a rash of injuries during the stretch."

My first thought is, "He needs to be more careful where he's swinging that thing."

Typical of Price to grandstand. He was always good for entertainment value when he coached at Weber State.

Yo, Xpat, UTEP plays in the Sun Bowl and it has seating for 51,500...you must have had a huge high school stadium. You are very knowledgeable.

Xpat,

UTEP looks like they are in their visiting uniforms.

BYU will win this game as easily as they did against teams like Colorado St., New Mexico and UNLV. UTEP is not a very good team. Go COUGS!!!!!

Re: Flashback

What grandstanding are you talking about? Swinging a pick axe before the game? How is that grandstanding?

Re: DN

Mike Price is not just a former coach of Weber State. Here are his coaching accomplishments:

Led UTEP to the winningest five-year period in the modern era of UTEP football. Under Price's direction UTEP has appeared in a pair of bowl games, earned national top-25 rankings in the month of November twice and had 40 All-Conference selections.

Coached at Washington State University (the real WSU) from 1989-2002 seasons, leading the (real) Cougars to the Rose Bowl in 2002 and 1997 and the Sun Bowl in 2001. During his 14 years at Washington State, Price coached five players who were selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. He was named National Coach of the Year in 1997, and was named Pac-10 Coach of the Year for the three times.

Remember, he did all of this in Pullman and El Paso, not the easiest places to recruit mind you.

Nope. BYU killed them.
