Blamed it on health. Alex, their closest beat writer, said it's a total fall out after the new AD was hired. A fall out in the postiive direction that is.

I thought this would have happened last year after their terrible start but their turnaround was remarkable.
I guess he figured he doesn't need this crap anymore. Again.

The toxic fumes from the dumpster fire he created must have made him sick.

Why link to a blog post of a screen shot of a tweet instead of just linking to the tweet itself since that is all there is in the blog post? There isn't any commentary or anything.

Grant Traylor‏ @GrantTraylor

Grant Traylor Retweeted The Prospector

Tim Floyd with some parting words after resigning as UTEP's MBB coach following Monday's loss at Lamar. New AD in reference is Jim Senter, who was hired Wednesday and introduced merely hours before Floyd quit. Again...bizarre!

The Prospector‏ @UTEP_Prospector

"The new AD should get this school were it belongs, in the Mountain West conference" Tim Floyd

What is Barbee doing now days? Just a statement, not really a question. If I truly wanted to know Google is there.

Does he mean the "new world" with the Feds watching which makes it harder to give $1000 handshakes to player's representatives?

WesternBlazer posted a bunch of them, but I didn't do it very often. I completely understand posting material on this board though for traffic purposes. :-)

All I'm saying is, when I click a link to a site, it would be nice to have some additional commentary over just a photo of a tweet. But this is more of a criticism of the state of journalism/blogging today than it is Daily Dragon or this blog post in particular. I've seen other websites do the exact same thing. It isn't like DD doesn't have great content otherwise.

Makes you think.



Anyway UTEP go get Mike Davis or Ray Harper won't have to over spend.

Not a bad idea to consider hiring him again.

Notwithstanding his failure at AU, he did pretty good at UTEP and he could probably be hired in the middle of the year to try & shore up recruiting as well as retain current players.
