  1. Shooters at Mandalay Bay

    It was pretty crazy at UNLV today. Over half the students in my class were absent. My professor broke down crying during the class. She had us do an activity to write down what we feel, then crumple or rip the paper and throw it away to try and put it behind us. After that was out of the way, class continued mostly as usual. Candlelight vigil after class on campus. Drove across the strip on way home. Most casinos and many businesses have some version of "Pray For Las Vegas" on their billboards. Sea of cell phones out for selfies under the signs. Somber.
  2. UNLV at Ohio State

    They have that butt new logo on a few garbage bins around campus (seriously); which is about the only appropriate place it belongs.
  3. I'm confused that a program as historically and consistently Butt as UNLV football could EVER be that big of favourites to anyone, whomever they're playing. Sportsbooks reallllly screwed up on that one...
  4. Howard at UNLV - Season opener

    P-U! Absolutely pathetic!!
  5. UNLV scrapped the new logo?

    Not true... the PC Police would find a reason to get offended by this one and call it racist too. I do really like it except the font of the UNLV letters on top.
  6. Hugh Freeze Out at Ole Miss

    At Ole Miss, the Nutt busts you!!! Hahahaha!
  7. New UNLV Logo

    I stopped by both the bookstore and Rebel Books across the street and made a point to tell the cashiers what I thought of the terrible new logo. I was told by both stores it's staying and they will only sell merchendise with the old hey reb logo until they run out of stock. They are not making anything new with the old logo. Thanks, PC police!
  8. Congrats to the Warriors!

    NBA sucks a$$. Hoops is the only sport i really enjoy college more than pros (and it ain't close). That said I really like LeBron... kinda sucks he's got what, a 3-5 record in NBA finals? But still, 3 titles is way more than most players will ever have.
  9. OT moving to Vegas!!

    That's not good news!!! Don't ruin my high man! Maybe i'll have to ditch some classes now and then...
  10. OT moving to Vegas!!

    I left Vegas for good (or so I thought) in spring 2003. Somehow i've still remained a die-hard UNLV fan thru the years and still follow my alma mater intently (well, one of my 4 alma maters TBH but who's counting?). Having spent most of my adult life traveling and occasionally living abroad, i'm suddenly 38 (and broke, haha). I figure its time to actually get a somewhat normal life (or at least try). So i've applied and just been accepted to UNLV grad school!!! I'll be back in under a month. Cant wait to get to see a Rebel hoops game at the Mack this year!! Hopefully i'll get a chance to meet some of my fellow Rebel fans on here. See ya soon, Vegas!!!
  11. We all owe Mugtang a big thank you.

    After nearly 2 decades on Rebel Net and watching it devolve into a tiny club of condescending elitists with identical views (and crushes on dave rice), it was incredibly refreshing to find this board!!! Thanks to mug and everyone else for allowing a true place where, for the most part, differing opinions are welcomed rather than viciously attacked.
  12. Vegas Golden Knights have named their AHL affiliate

    Disclaimer: I lived in Moscow for two years and became a quite big Dynamo Moscow fan, and attended many KHL games. Also attended several in Bratislava, Slovakia. So yeah I'm a little biased. That said, KHL is pretty much universally known as the second-best, and trust me, it isn't even remotely close. According to this site, the AHL is ranked the tenth best league in the world... (FWIW I'd disagree with that and put the AHL higher) http://thehockeywriters.com/top-10-best-ice-hockey-leagues/ This one has the AHL in the next tier outside the NHL/KHL, but I didn't find any site that refuted the fact the KHL is second only to NHL in the world. https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-best-hockey-leagues-other-than-the-NHL-and-KHL
  13. Vegas Golden Knights have named their AHL affiliate

    Strongly disagree with that. The KHL in Russia-Europe is the second best.
  14. After Being Separated from Dave Rice...

    They were easily the best of the pathetic "CDR" era, but I disagree they were "good". Good only record-wise and OOC-wise. Both years we got markedly worse as the season went along, couldnt win the MWC regular season OR tourney on our home court with the most talent, and got embarrassed by lower seeds in the NCAA tourney.
  15. After Being Separated from Dave Rice...

    Fair enough. But the fact you didn't "see" his obvious incompetence during the 5 years it was right in front of your face says a lot about your analytical skills, or lack thereof.
