The Road To Glory: UTEP's Online Museum Celebrating the 1966 National Championship Team


I have no idea when UTEP launched this site, but it's a great way to learn about the '66 team. Hat tip to Chris Avila who wrote a heck of a piece on the way UTEP currently honors the '66 team, without which, I might never have stumbled upon this site. Avila thinks it's time to construct an on-campus museum, or at the very least, an elaborate display kiosk, to honor the team. This website, is a good start.

LA Times: After Tumultuous Departure from USC, Tim Floyd Makes Return to College Hoops at UTEP


Good read on Tim Floyd by Alicia Caldwell at the LA Times. Caldwell has some nice quotes from Bob Stull and Floyd himself who discusses his mindset as he takes over the UTEP program. Also, he mentions how he is trying to schedule a long term scheduling contract with our former WAC rival, New Mexico. Floyd on the pending NCAA ruling on alleged USC improprieties: Floyd has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing and he's been reluctant to speak about the case, saying he has been asked to remain quite because of the ongoing investigation. "It will all come out." On UTEP's program: "Tony left it in good shape... We're going to build (this program) the way we built USC." On scheduling: "It use to be you scheduled a bunch of barking dogs. We are going to try to play the toughest out of conference schedule. I'd rather be playing Kansas, Duke, UCLA than playing a one and one with (less competitive schools)." Note: ESPN is reporting that the NCAA Committee on Infractions will release their findings on USC Friday-- circle this day on your calendars, Miner fans. Though the NCAA cannot impose sanctions on UTEP directly, they can place recruiting restrictions on Floyd if they determine he did commit a major violation while head coach of the Trojans.
