2018 UTEP Miners Predictions: Team Strengths
Low Expecations : Honestly the strengths are hard to find with this team, but one of them is that the expecations are low.
When a team wins zero games there is really no expectations, and that is going to be the case with this team. One or two wins is going to be enough for the fans to feel positive about this season.
The team is also young and it’s going to give some of the younger players a lot of good chances to play meaningful football.
This team is going to have time to grow into their roles, and that will help with this young team.
Secondary: One of the places that this team does have a strength is in the secondary. Two of the best players on the team are Devin Cockrell and Kahani Smith and they are both in the secondary.
If they can get a couple players that are decent outside on the secondary, there is a chance this secondary could be very solid.
2018 UTEP Miners Predictions: Team Weaknesses
No Gamechangers: The biggest problem the Miners are going to have this year is just the talent that they have on their team.
On defense, they have a few gamechangers, but on the offensive side they really don’t have anyone that can get that 80 yard pass or break that 95 yard run.
They are going to have to have someone that steps up if they want to win more then one or two games.
Change in Scheme: This team is switching from a 3-4 to a 4-2-5 and usually when that happens it makes the defense struggle for a bit.
They are going to have to play a few people out of position this season and that is going to cause the defense to really struggle.
UTEP Miners Prediction: 2-10
The Miners know the rebuild is going to be a slow start, but I think they will get it off to a decent start.
I think they will find a way to win two games, which is two games more than last year, and that will be the first step for this program.
