If Rice loves UNLV like his supporters claim he should resign, I want to see what he is made of really.

 

Why would you expect him to do that?  He has to do what is right for his career.  He should not resign.

Sucks for fans like you and the rest here that are rational. Too bad really. I think a good UNLV makes this conference look good. Bummer.

 

 

UNLV "fans" are an interesting bunch. You guys seem to hate each other. Final 4 or bust!!

 

I try to be rational, sometimes emotions get the better of everyone. I like Dave , I want him to do well because I am an alum and a fan. I care about the school and the team and I know Dave does too. If Dave is doing well as a coach the team is winning, if he isn't we get what we have right now. A team of quality players with no direction. That falls not just on Rice but the entire staff.

 

I'm a realist, I know it's not 1990 and only 3 schools from non power conferences have made a Final 4 since us well if you want to count when Louisville and Marquette in CUSA.

I'm not anti-Theus.  I refuse to crap on one of our legends who has his retired number hanging from our rafters.

 

I'm not crapping on him , I just think like most coaches he wants what's best for him

There are plenty of quality coaches UNLV could hire if the boosters were willing to pay up.... I doubt Wichita State could pay Gregg Marshall more than what UNLV could.

 

For the record Reggie Theus does not come to mind

 

Gregg Marhsall isn't leaving.

 

BYU played Wichita State earlier this season.  I don't think UNLV fans would enjoy their style of play.  A very slow down, grind it team, from what I saw.  Kind of a Lon Kruger sort of philosophy.

 

I thought UNLV wanted running, high scoring, offense?

 

Idc tbh. I love Witichta State. We faced them once in 2012 and he habded Dave Rice's first loss as a head coach.

Kruger's emotional compared to Rice. At least Kruger would CLAP.

 

There is no defense I can make after tonight. Unacceptable performance in a season of unacceptable home losses. I can't take one positive out of this for the program.

 

We hit our FT's tonight. It kept us in the game.

 

I want to win, I could care less about the style. My favorite coach is Tom Izzo, his teams don't exactly run up and down the floor.

 

Thank you.

 

The guy I want went to Oregon.  With their financial backing we couldn't touch him.

 

Altman would be perfect here. PRESS!!! Yes, press. We have the perfect team for Altman's style.

Good post. Refreshing to see. Hopefully it works out for all. Mainly the whole MWC.

LOL--Know-it-all dweebs like Ishoot2thrill and Wyovanian always cite these stuck in the 1990s UNLV fans that believe we should be in the FInal Four every year and anything less and the coach should be fired. They don't exist. No one believes that. It's not that black and white as we're either in the Final Four or being where we are right now with Rice. There's a huuuge middleground between where UNLV is under Rice and going to the Final Four every season. This team has 5 losses in the T&M Center. That's tied for most ever in UNLV history.

Forget Theus, any respectable coach in the country would have UNLV significantly better-off than they are now.

Hahaha. Know it all dweebs? Alright Mr. Don't use personal attacks. I'm willing to bet Wyovanian has done a lot more interesting things in his life than you and I generally don't agree or get along with him. As for me... I'm more than willing to bet you wouldn't call me a dweeb if you knew me. Who had more posts here? Who clearly posts from their computer using bold and photoshop? Cool that you have a sick ass gaming rig that you can use. You make some decent points but they get lost in the idiocy of your obsessions. Enjoy your non track house home. Hopefully you live near rancho and charleston. Yeah. I've been to Las Vegas and know some pretty nice non track home areas and have friends there. Not on the Internet. Weird I know. Anyway. I'm going to continue knowing it all. I hope you continue to know Theus and obsess over him. He was a great Rebel. Good luck hiring your next coach boss hoss.

WOW!!!

 

Rice isn't going anywhere, we have to accept that but unfortunately that also means accepting loses like this.

 

I loved Altman, the guy is brilliant although I think Oregon would have come calling anyway and we wouldn't have had a shot to keep him. I'm of the school of thought that Reggie Theus is not the savior that some think he is. I see him as a snake oil salesman who is only out for Reggie. He can say all the right things and charm the pants off the ladies but I see him as being on the first plane out of Vegas if a bigger and better offer comes his way.

 

Agreed with everything but the first line, which is becoming more and more likely each game. Trust me, TKM isn't stupid.

 

Cracks in the dam are showing.

10-6 and could be 10-8 real soon. Unacceptable if we go 10-8.

Personally, if UNLV is as big time as everyone likes to think in vegas. Make a big time hire like Shaka smart.

 

Even you're saying it.

The question isn't about if she is stupid but are things bad enough that she will fire him? While the fans might be getting restless I don't think they'll fire the guy after a few bad losses or even a bad season.

Likely 16+ losses in his third year, after he finally has all his own recruits?

He is gone! Likely resigns if he has any pride Or true love for Rebel basketball.

Lol 'photoshop' 'gaming rig? I made that picture with MSPaint 'hoss'--Lol what a dork. Looks like I hit a nerve. All you and guys like Wyovanian do is refer to these stuck in 1990 UNLV fans saying Final Four should be the standard at UNLV. I just never, ever see a single UNLV fan with those expectations. They're figments of your imagination because they help you push your little tired ass stereotype of "HURDURR STUCK IN 1990s VANILLA ICE UNLV FANS HURR DURR"

 

Again, there's a huge middle ground where UNLV can be with a better coach. It's like you think there's two gears UNLV can shift into:  Tarkanian-level success Or  perennial middle of the pack MWC/1st Round Exit level success.

To be fair, there was a lot of Final Four talk before last season.  Even Dr. Smatresk was using those words.

Coaches are getting fired more and more often nowadays. I don't see why not. It'll leave the situation even worse for the new coach the longer he's around.

I'd be fine with a Sweet Sixteen trip every few years and a team the plays hard and to the strengths of the team.

Dr. Smastresk is a douchebag with zero backbone.

Rice couldn't make the Final Four of the CIT or CBI.

UNLV needs to make an immediate change to stop the bleeding.

Rice should be directed to resign before he does any further embarrassment to the university and basketball program.

The President and AD that hired Rice are gone! Time to fix past mistakes. Make things right.

Oh, I know. Smatresk and his wife jovially invited me when they said they already booked their flight to the Final Four when I was sitting in the president's box when Minnesota was playing us at Sam Boyd stadium.  University presidents always make wacky, boisterous claims like that when they want people to open their wallets and make a donation.

 

That's why he was such a bad fundraiser.  Bad salesman, who doesn't know how to ask people for money. Not like it matters, UNLV will continue to not get a dime from me or anyone in my family as long as Rice is the HC.

 

As far as actual fans go. Sweet-16 was the benchmark. Not Final Four.

Who are some replacement names that UNLV fans would like hired?

 

Here is the criteria:

 

(1) you can offer the UNLV usual of $500k per year (also assuming that assistant salaries budget won't be huge)

 

(2) the coach needs to have a high scoring offensive philosophy (the Casinos have given UNLV fans ADD, and they want scoring and excitement....not grind it out).

 

Any names that you can hire under that criteria?

Hahaha. Man. You make this forum worth while. Don't address things. Good to see you can't notice jovial remarks. Maybe I should "type them slower"? Don't deny you got a sweet gaming rig. ROFL would kill for your setup. (No offense ROFL this was used for comedic effect. Something that most likely will be lost on my superior Mr. THE Rebels18)
