  1. Again, another ridiculous statement. 50% (I'm probably low balling) of college athletes in basketball and football have no business being in college. That wasn't a Tark thing, its a college athletics thing.
  2. I explained why...........piss poor administration and ego maniac boosters.
  3. You're high if you think anything has changed. The cheating is so blatant now that the NCAA knows its happening and allows it (because it helps their bottom line), that's why Duke for instance, has been outed numerous times, but yet never been penalized. I'd even go as far as saying that every school cheats, probably always have, some are just better at it than others, a lot better. The reason UNLV has been a disaster since Tark left is because of piss poor administrations that don't understand how important basketball is to the school, ego maniac boosters don't help the situation either. It has nothing to do with cheating or not cheating. Lon Kruger was leading us in the right direction and there's no reason we can't get back.
  4. I'm sure this will end the same way it always does when Duke gets caught. It'll get swept under the rug and everyone will forget about it by next month.
  5. And that's why I included some population numbers in my post........
  6. If you look at a map, you'd see that about 55% of Kansas City is in MO and 45% is in KS. The largest city by population in the KC Metro area is Kansas City, MO The next 3 largest cities in the area are all in KS: Kansas City, KS, Overland Park, and Olathe. The Chiefs and Royals play in MO, but Sporting KC of MLS plays in KS. The two most populated counties in the KC Metro area are: Jackson County, MO - 700,000 (est.) and Johnson County, KS - 600,000 (est.)
  7. That tourney game where we were missing one of our best players? EML was arguably our best all-around player at the end of the season. We have him in that game and we beat BSU, then take out SDSU...again, and who knows what happens against USU.
  8. In Feb/Mar he was on fire. Averaging about 23 pts, 9 rebs while shooting 57% FG and 41% from 3. Pistons were only 3-13 in those months, but Wood was playing great.
  9. I don't think goalies today are necessarily better than they were back then, they just wear MUCH bigger pads. The goalies of today can almost completely take up the entire net, that makes Ovi's accomplishments even more impressive to me. Back in the 80's and prior, the goalies equipment was pathetic, plus in the 80's we saw the emergence of some of the greatest scorers of all time like Gretzky, Brett Hull, Mark Messier, Super Mario, Paul Coffey, Stevie Y, Ron Francis, etc. If Ovi played in the 80's, he probably would've scored over 100 goals in a season.
  10. Yeah, Jenkins should blow away Hardy's production. Jenkins is a TJO system guy, Hardy most definitely was not. Jenkins and Hamilton will be a force and will likely average 40 points combined.
  11. Waddilove has claimed we were getting just about every recruit in the country, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
  12. That's ridiculous, these kids should all be punished severely for this. Drop the hammer on them.
  13. Rebels D is gonna be a force in a year or two. Arroyo's been on the job a little over a month and has already put together the best recruiting class in UNLV fb history.
  14. We lost Whitley which sucks, but we stole Alex Lines from BYU and Boise, so that's great.
