  1. Police Shooting of Daniel Shaver

    I understand police have an incredibly difficult job and every situation is a potentially life threatening one but this is one of the more disturbing videos I’ve ever seen. Be warned. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/454504/police-murder-daniel-shaver

    I think the Block Chain is a big part of the future but Bitcoin makes me think of these...
  3. Nevada at Texas Tech

    I had no illusions they’d go undefeated. I’d rather they didn’t. I think undefeated teams don’t fair well come tournament time.
  4. Nevada at Texas Tech

    Some thoughts about last night. Texas Tech has the #10 rated defense according to KenPom and they are #5 for bench minutes. Nevada is #316 in bench minutes. Clearly that factored in late in the game. Tech had fresh legs and they are good defenders. Not sure why Muss refuses to play his bench more. During the first 25 minutes Nevada looked like the clearly better team. I wasn’t crazy about the uneven whistle on the offensive side for us, seemed like we got the short end there. But C’est La Vie, that’s life on the road. Major missed opportunity for a resume building win but clearly this team can compete with the top 20 teams in the country. Tech’s Keenan Evans reminded me a lot of Deonte Burton in the 2nd half.
  5. Arizona at UNLV

    Is it too late for me to keep screaming "DOUBLE AYTON! DOUBLE AYTON!! DOUBLE AYTON!!!"
  6. Nevada breaks into AP top 25

  7. Democrats don't even want to talk about Tax Bill

    This is great! Instead of returning a 25% IRR to my accredited investors I can now return 29% Plus keep an extra 4% for myself. I’ll also increase my employees wages by .10 an hour. Win win for everyone!!
  8. Northern Nevada Schools

    Purge Gorman from NAIA and this is a non-issue. Why is this so hard for people to understand? They aren’t playing by the same rules as the rest of the schools in the state. I went to Chaparral back in the era where Chap, Gorman, Rancho battled Wooster for state dominance in football every year. But Gorman has started playing by different rules than they did back in those days. The only reason they haven’t been kicked out of the NAIA is lobbying by powerful, politically connected Gorman alums and donors.
  9. Illinois State at Nevada

    Elk Grove. He was recruited by Muss. Fayne and Tooley played on the same AAU team together.
  10. President Trump pardons turkey

    ...I hope that turkey shows more gratitude than the UCLA players or this tweet storm is going to be epic.

    You rock! Much more helpful than Mugtang or that Lawlor character!!
  12. Streaming Sports

    I wonder if a VPN that blocks my location would do the trick?
  13. Nevada Helmets vs UNLV

    Case in point above.
  14. Streaming Sports

    Not to distract from the political smack down raging but has anyone solved the issue of streaming AT&T Sports Net?
  15. Nevada Helmets vs UNLV

    I really don’t care what our rivals or opposing fans call us, by the very nature of the rivalry, they’ll always be petty and recalcitrant about it. What matters is what’s on the uniforms and what ESPN, CBS, et al call us. That said, so many fans are ignorant of the history of the name. The short version is this: From 1874 to 1969 the university in the city up North was simply called, the University of Nevada. Its athletics teams were simply called “Nevada”. There are old photos of the football team in leather helmets with “Nevada” on their uniforms. For a brief period, 1969 to 1992, just 23 years of the University’s 143 year history, the athletic teams went by the three letters. In 1992, the athletics teams reclaimed their original name.
