  1. Jay Norvell or Tony Sanchez ?

    Sanchez dropped 80 on Idaho State. And he doesn't have a horrible mustache like Norvell.
  2. The fire Jay Norvell thread

    Yes I do enjoy when you lose. I think a lot more losses are coming under Norvell. I think he was a bad hire. As for our FCS losses we have had far more than we should. But the last time we player Idaho St a few years ago we dropped 80 on them.
  3. The fire Jay Norvell thread

    But, but Knuth has never made a bad hire.
  4. And the CBO has a long history of being wrong, dramatically wrong. http://www.dailywire.com/news/14454/7-times-congressional-budget-office-got-its-aaron-bandler#exit-modal
  5. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/report-fiscal-drain-of-illegal-immigrants-is-6-times-cost-of-deportation/article/2630500 Researchers agree that illegal immigrants overwhelmingly have modest levels of education — most have not completed high school or have only a high school education. There is also agreement that immigrants with this level of education are a significant net fiscal drain, creating more in costs for government than they pay in taxes. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine estimated the lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) of immigrants based on their educational attainment. Averaging those estimates and applying them to the education level of illegal immigrants shows a net fiscal drain of $65,292 per illegal — excluding any costs for their children. Based on this estimate, there is a total lifetime fiscal drain of $746.3 billion. This assumes 11.43 million illegal immigrants are in the country based on the U.S. government's most recent estimate. The fiscal cost created by illegal immigrants of $746.3 billion compares to total a cost of deportation of $124.1 billion, assuming a FY 2016 cost per deportation, or $67.6 billion using FY 2012 deportation costs.
  6. E Verify is not a huge regulatory burden. It actually works. http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/302936-forget-the-fence-e-verify-will-really-shut-down-the Don't let facts get in your way. You don't know what you are talking about. Your argument about sanctuary cities is stupid. There are already existing immigration laws that sanctuary cities are violating right now. How is that the 'last vestige of seperation between the states and the federal government'? If you want to talk about states rights I am all for it but you don't even comprehend immigration isn't a state function it is a federal function. You are for openly violating federal law. So tell me what federal law can I violate and not be charged? Yes every nation on Earth has immigration policies. Do you know what you have to do to get a legal work visa to Mexico? A key criterion that the Mexican authorities require for the issuance of a Temporary Resident Visa is that the applicant prove that they have ‘sufficient funds to sustain themselves while in Mexico’ and/or a proven steady income. The financial requirements are based in Mexican pesos, and the financial criteria were formalized following the introduction of the new immigration law that was enacted in 2012. If you can't they deny you entry. If you want to be granted a permanent visa you 'must apply for retirement status and prove they have sufficient monthly income (or substantial assets) to support themselves'. They also deport illiegal entrants or shuttle them to the U.S. https://www.mexperience.com/lifestyle/living-in-mexico/visas-and-immigration/ Instead of just making stupid arguments that no other nation enforces their immigration policies why don't you actually look at other countries policies? You know what America does that no other country does for illegals? it gives them medical coverage and educates their children for free and we pay for it. You didn't even get my point about DACA. If those eligible get a green card that is one thing. Citizenship is another. With a green card they can stay and work(with no voting rights) but their families are not eligible to come to the US. If they are granted citizenship they are eligible to emigrate to the US. That means potentially millions more people with low skills will move here legally. That doesn't benefit this nation. It dilutes jobs for low skilled American workers. Your solution is not less government it is more. You're the one that wants the US taxpayer to spend billions of dollars to help build the economies of Central and South America. Since 1946 the US taxpayer has given 146 billion dollars in aid to Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2017 the figure is 1.7 billion dollars in aid. https://fas.org/sgp/crs/row/R44647.pdf This doesn't even include the work of the Peace Corps or numerous American religious groups that help in Latin America or the US charities that pour money into these countries. How much more do you want to give? Why is it our responsibility to build the economies of these nations and pay for it? What is the responsibility of those living there? You want to alk about the victims of illegal immigration? Why don't you start here. http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp That is a memorial for American citizens killed by illegal immigrants. Is that not enough for you? How about the costs illegals burden the American taxpayer with: Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local level. The bulk of the costs — some $84 billion — are absorbed by state and local governments. The annual outlay that illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers is an average amount per native-headed household of $1,117. The fiscal impact per household varies considerably because the greatest share of the burden falls on state and local taxpayers whose burden depends on the size of the illegal alien population in that locality Education for the children of illegal aliens constitutes the single largest cost to taxpayers, at an annual price tag of nearly $52 billion. Nearly all of those costs are absorbed by state and local governments. At the federal level, about one-third of outlays are matched by tax collections from illegal aliens. At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens. Most illegal aliens do not pay income taxes. Among those who do, much of the revenues collected are refunded to the illegal aliens when they file tax returns. Many are also claiming tax credits resulting in payments from the U.S. Treasury. http://www.fairus.org/issue/publications-and-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-united-states-taxpayers-2013 You are naive and shockingly ignorant to the costs we already pay on this problem.
  7. When E Verify is law and employers are fined heavily for the use of illegal workers. When immigration law is actually enforced as written. When public benefits for illegals are no longer given. Etc. Take away the economic incentive and opportunity for illegals to work here and you go a long way to curbing illegal immigration. And you don't need a wall.
  8. There is absolutely a way to secure the border. Make it law that E Verify must be used by employers and heavy fines are levied on the employer for the use of illegals. Take away the incentive for businesses to employ illegals and a big reason for them to be here is gone. Then actually enforce immigration law. Deport those that are caught. End sanctuary cities. There are plenty of legal means to curb illegal immigration. Every other nation on Earth does this. DACA is a disaster. It is because the way the immigration law is written now as soon as you give the DACA eligible people citizenship their parents and family are eligible to emigrate here and become citizens. So it is not just legalizing and giving citizenship to these people that through no fault of their own are here. Their parents and other family members get it too. How is that right? Plus DACA only goes up to 2007. We all know that once this precedent is set that the dems will push for everyone else here after 2007 be granted the same status. Look, if the idea is they can remain here and not be citizens and have no voting rights I'm open to that. I'm absolutely opposed to them or any person that came here illegally being given citizenship and the right to vote.
  9. This is a complete disaster. First these are not kids. Most of them are in their 20's. 844,931 applied for DACA but Pew Research estimates 1.7 million may be eligible. Under current law if they get citizenship then their parents are eligible for citizenship as are family members. So we would then be rewarding the parents with legalization for breaking the law. Then because it isn't fair to just give citizenship to those covered under DACA the dems will push to legalize all those currently in the country and then they will be eligible to bring their families too. This is lunacy! You cannot do anything in regards to legalization without first securing the border. Then you deal with who is here.

    UNR has followed UNLV to every D-1 athletic conference. UNR was created first. That's it.

    Well, we are world class in all three of those.

    I think you're a good guy Mug so please don't take this the wrong way. I thik UNR is never going to get anywhere near where you were with Ault for a number of factors. 1. Ault was there long term and created a culture that defined UNR. He was the program. I don't believe that any coach that has any success near him UNR would be able to keep. UNR isn't a destination job and there will be a revolving door of coaches. 2. UNR is not willing to expand your athletic spending on par to other schools inside the conference let alone P5. CSU has a new stadium. SDSU I think will have one too. UNLV will have a new practice facility and play in the new stadium. If you won't compete in the arms race I believe UNR will lag for talent. 3. In the next few years conferences will be reshaped again. I think UNR will be left behind. I don't see the value UNR brings as an institution or Reno as a market in conference expansion. When this happens UNR will become more of a have not. I'm not saying UNLV is any lock for expansion either. But UNLV has a much better shot just based on the size of the market and the city itself. Again, not trying to bve a dick here, just being honest with my thoughts. I'd like to read your opinion.
  14. Russia bought Facebook ads to influence election

    You really have no +++++ing clue. I advertise on Facebook for my business every day. There are tools on facebook that I can target people by income, age, sex, physical charteristics, hobbies, etc. I target individuals every day on Facebook and I'm not very computer literate. I can do this and I am not a marketing company. Are you really saying how could the Russians pull off this huge targeting feat on Facebook? You can't be serious. You can't be that dumb to think a country that has a deep history of espionage and has hackers on it's payroll can't figure out how to target people on Facebook? You really think that Russia, a large nation, has to rely on the Trump Group for targeting information when it owns one of the most sophisicated and venerable intelligence services in the world. But apparantly the decendents of KGB and GRU don't know anything next to Jared Kushner in your world.

    Have you asked yourself why he never got a sniff for a HC job before yours? You would think after being an OC at Nebraska, UCLA and Oklahoma he could have got a HC job sooner but he didn't. If fact he was demoted to WR coach the last 2 years. Ever wonder why? And before you start with Sanchez, yeah we took a shot. At worst we got a 27 million practice facility out of it for the next guy. We had nowhere to go but up. You are on. $100 on the game. But when I win I want you to donate that yard to the Childrens Heart Center of Nevada. If you win I'll donate to the charity of your choice. Might as well help some others, bragging rights are way more important than 100 bucks. Deal?
