There's no real basis for this other than message board rumors (and we all know how often those come true), but I figured I'd bring it up since we started getting a decent number of hits from a UTEP board called MinerDigs.net citing our posting of the 2008 schedule back from December of last year.
One UTEP fan, MinerGold states unequivocally, that the game is already cancelled:
Someone on the BamaMag.com forums had this to say about it:
I didn't do an exhaustive search, but I sifted through several pages of search results on both Google and Yahoo and couldn't find anything about it being cancelled. Neither teams' fans posted any links showing that it has been cancelled, so I can only assume it's still on.
That does beg the question though, should we go ahead with this game? Is it a lose-lose situation for us and a win-win for UTEP/Mike Price? Is it irrelevant in 2008? Will ESPN, Sports Illustrated and others have a field day with it if the game proceeds as scheduled? Discuss.
