That the best snaffo ive seen since our associate ad refused to hold up eagle walk for our ex president. She wanted them to wait while she took a quick 10-100. He said Im not waiting on her fat ass.
Monday he became a former associate ad.

RE: UTEP Miner Athletics Uses Twitter To Put Down Their Own Player
This is very similar to something I heard happend to Arnte Moultrie and back when they were NBA prospects playing for the UTEP Miners.

A friend of mine said that Moultrie was threatened not to try the draft because if he did, they would let NBA teams know that he wasn't a team player. Consequently, he transfered to Miss. St.

Could this be something that was done purposely to keep Hunter from trying the draft?

Your friend was mistaken. That never happened. Furthermore, it is not what is happening here.

This was nothing more than a pompous administrator putting his foot in his mouth twice.

You're probably right. But you never know.

Early in the year Hunter was getting a lot of playing time and was Wowing the scouts. Then all of the sudden, he got benched and his minutes dropped significantly. Makes you wonder if there is something behind the scenes going on.

Am I misreading your intent or are you seriously trying to say a coach would bench or cut their best players minutes just to try and keep him around for another year?

If you actually meant it that way it's one of the stupidest things I read in a while. That is if you actually believe a coach would do that..

Have you met fitbum before? If not, stay tuned! Something equally stupid will be posted by him at the very first opportunity to bash UTEP or El Paso.

I'm considering the possibility that Hunter has gotten to big for his britches and is on his way out.
