  1. UNLV Scarlet/Gray Showcase

    Just like last year, this is all about the state and talent level of the coaching staff and how they develop. A quality staff can develop players and coach a game. We haven't seen much of that in many years. Nobody is expecting very much. Even with that said if they live up to those low expectations then I would consider that a failure. Surprises should be of a positive nature to to have any thoughts of the program heading in a positive direction. Win the games that we are supposed to and pull out a occasional surprise. Then we'll have a conversation about the future of the program.

    Bout Time!
  3. UNLV FB facility thread.

    Well 6 or 7 months lost but it should be back on track again. This will be valuable tool to sell to future recruits which is an important piece of the puzzle.

    There is no substitute for winning. If they win then people will come. How many people that come is directly proportional to how much they win. This town is hungry for a winning UNLV program but won't suffer more of the same. Same thing with BB.

    After all these years of trying to get a major professional sports franchise in Vegas we end up with 2 over a period of many years. Them times they are a changin'. With the NFL signing off on Vegas the old crap about gaming and sports being something evil is now over. It's just a matter of time before the real corrupt sports organization, the NCAA, comes a calling. Between the indoor arena and stadium we should start to see the major bowls and tournaments here in a few years. I could care less about going but they bring in money which is where it is really at.

    It really doesn't matter. If the team succeeds then playing in the new stadium will only make things better. If the team still flounders then it won't matter one way or the other. In the mean time I get a more comfortable seat in an air conditioned house with much better concessions. Cool beans......

    If you build it, they will come.
  8. Musselman becomes highest paid MWC coach

    Good for UNR. In this day you either get in the game or you get out. It amazes me that a higher education institute that has a School of Business doesn't have a clue on what is needed or how to invest in their own business, which is what sports is.
  9. APs Top 100 Men's Basketball Programs

    Does anything about the last quarter century feel even remotely like top 100 let alone top 25. This is only a testament to how strong things were from 77 to 92.

    He still has the cred to pick a school with some BB prominence. UNLV is not that school and isn't even near a path to become that school. We are set for a few years of mainly 2 star and lower 3 star ranked players. MM will need to prove something before he can sell anything to higher level players. A coaching career of zero top 50 wins and 2 top 100 wins won't do it. A near empty T&M won't do it. Mendenhall is icing on a stale cake. Right now the future of this program is on hold waiting for an actual series of accomplishments.
  11. Report is UNLV will sign a 2 for 1 deal......

    2 years from now this could be the high water mark on our schedule. If you can't play up then you schedule down.

    I thought this was televised?
  14. Duke a possible #1 seed?!?!?!?

    Make it so!
  15. SDSU vs UNLV

    MM in his coaching career has been a mediocre coach that has had a modicum of success in lower level conferences. His record stands for itself against Top 50 teams - Zero Wins. He may find a way to increase wins over time and will probably do it the same way, by scheduling down. He still won't have much success in the MWC even though it continues to tumble. So expect a few more wins against lower level teams in the OOC and although I can't comprehend a worse conference record it won't get dramatically better either. We not only got what was leftover for a team we also got what was leftover as a coach which is a nice guy but not a coach to build a program.
