Yearbook: UTEP Flowsheet

Saturday, September 17, 2016

This is likely my last foreseeable chance to post UTEP's yearbooks in a timely way.

I'm proud to present the UTEP/Texas Western Flowsheet yearbook.

These are some pretty good yearbooks with some nice content, I'm seeing that the scans don't do justice to the pictures. I really had to dig to find an aerial shot of the Sun Bowl, and it seemed to me that the best shots of the stadium were often used as a splash page for a student group - so there would be lettering on the photo of the Sun Bowl rendering it unusable as a visual on this page.

So while I was a little bit let down by the lack of the Sun Bowl stadium as a photographic subject, the UTEP Flowsheet's depiction of student life showed a notable respect for school administration and the academic departments, a reverence for meaningful student organizations such as their Greek system, ROTC, student debate team, various arts clubs and, indeed, a clear love for their stadium.

The Sun Bowl is one of my absolute favorite stadiums and I can't remember being this excited for an Army football game. It sounds so bizarre to even say that, but I expect tonight's game can conjure up every bit of the magic that the late-December classic gives me when I tune in every bowl season. 

If there is one year to check out try the 1966 Flowsheet. Finish the fantastic write-ups of each football game as the success of the 1965 football year was relived in the pages of their yearbook. That 1965 season presented Texas Western it's first opportunity to play in their 2-year-old stadium for what it was constructed for - the Sun Bowl postseason bowl game.

Thrilling year, great football story that is fun to relive if you were there and nice to discover if you weren't. 

Turn the page and then read about Texas Western's NCAA basketball championship - itself a worthy read and another great story. 

Now wide awake at 2:00 AM EST I am going to have a tough time waiting for this 7:00 kickoff. 
You can find the Flowsheet yearbook listed with a collection of other great online yearbooks in the Yearbooks tab above.
