  1. I imagine they expect significantly increased revenue by way of tickets, concessions, rent, etc. in that scenario and those monies would pay for the upgrades. Just a guess, though.
  2. AF can slice and dice UNLV with cuts tomorrow if they don't communicate on D, and that's been a known issue for this Rebel team. Poyser is the only one who really understands what to expect tomorrow. Rebs are in the danger zone.
  3. He could give one hell of a speech. His tenure was dignified. The Halloweens at the white house were pretty cool.
  4. That house is rad. The interior is beautiful.
  5. They've had a long time to figure all that out. It is the oldest profession!
  6. I think I may have not expressed my sentiment to you clearly. The glory days of UNLV hoops is exactly what I was talking about! We weren't a "college" team. We were a national phenomenon renegade $ gucci row fireworks Tupac in a big bad ass arena. UNLV needs to Vegas as much as possible, not try to be Norman, Stillwater, Madison, Fort Collins or Laramie. That's what I mean. We will never be those places where the university is the focal point of the town. And we don't have the alumni base of UCLA or USC to thrive like that in an urban environment like they can. The mission statement of UNLV culture should just be one word...Rebel. My favorite thing about Sanchez is that he gets this.
  7. Okay, let's just say, for the sake of argument, that the left is a little more dramatic about the incoming president than the right was when Obama was elected. Maybe it's because Donald gawdam Trump, a professional megalomaniac, is going to be the president, and to put it mildly, he brings a bit of baggage with him. I can't even think about someone comparable on the left that we could imagine causing so much controversy. Somebody help me out. Maybe like an ex-swedish prime minister or something.
  8. I'm not so sure anymore. With the right approach, it may be UNLV's best bet. UNLV will never be a rah rah college town type of school and have the athletic programs to match. I just don't believe an on campus stadium with some extra dorms is going to change things anymore. But what UNLV can do is be the best damn commuter, semi-pro, large-ish city university west of the mississippi. Las Vegas has always been the outsider and where things are done differently. I think the more UNLV follows that mold, the better.
  9. Here's where you lose me on Trump>Bernie. I wanted Bernie and I would rather have Ron Paul, the opposite of Bernie, as president than Donald Trump.
  10. It's been going on for 30 years.
  11. She talks about both the rich and the poor being better off, even though the gap has widened. Rising tide lifts all boats sort of thing. But what we have right now are increasing incomes for the wealthy and falling incomes for the middle and lower classes. The rising tide seems to be a little more selective in recent times. I await the right honorable gentleman's response. Harumpf, hmmm, yes, yes...harumpf.
  12. And we all know that the Republican congress would have just rubber stamped everything and it would all be so. Bernie's a negotiator. He starts out asking a lot in order to hopefully get something. He's done that his entire career. His presidential run is his greatest example of this. The art of the deal, my friend.
  13. Obama's spending is a different discussion. And yes, we are never going to be out of debt, which is actually part of how this whole economic system works. Full faith and credit...that sort of thing.
  14. You are blowing my mind up right now.
  15. No, he doesn't. He wants rich people to pay for it.
