  1. Brandon McCoy: Is it the "Ed Graney likes him" curse?

    I said no on first round, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him go there either. Kid has been exposed so far in conference. Also seems like he hit the Freshman Wall. Also he is showing more immaturity whenever he gets some adversity. That should be the biggest red flag. Love the "Ed Graney curse" lol! There's truth to that I think.

    Fair enough. I wasn't trying to call you out, just saying that people who aren't at the games, talking to the other fans there, may have a different opinion of what the fanbase is thinking. I'm no superfan. Just an average schmuck that goes to the games. I'm not calling your fandom into question lol. ETA: In rereading my post, I agree I wasn't clear on that count. My apologies. I wasnt intending to call anyone a bad fan or a lesser fan. All the fans here are great, but distance can produce different views of things.

    Boise is a power team now.
  4. New Mexico at UNLV

    Careful, you're gonna give the entire UNLV fanbase unrealistic expectations about their program.

    Love this take! Well said.
  6. Marvin Menzies is a Joke

    Lol. You never disappoint in your completely and totally incorrect conclusions. Your record is stellar on that count.

    But how do you know if I am an exception? How many UNLV fans have you ever met? Point being, people are happy to form an opinion based on a few to cover thousands. Maybe I am more representative of the majority? Maybe I'm not. You sure as hell don't know lol. Nobody here does. But that blanket of prejudiced opinion is easier than trying to find out the truth. ETA: but it is good to see ya around Natty. And refreshing to see you haven't changed either.

    Guess we have to disagree on fan expectations. Opinions here seem to be built on a couple message board jockeys and that is enough to color everyone in a fanbase. Still lazy. (to be kind... intellectually dishonest to not be kind) But after being here long enough I have come to understand that posters here treasure their prejudices. Its a warm blanket of stupidity they cover up in. Anything that reinforces the prejudices is correct. Anything that challenges them isn't worth the time. Pure group think. It's why I am liking the non-sports side more. People fire up the neurons there. Somewhat. Honestly, there are some great UNLV fans here, but I've noticed the majority are not even season ticket holders. Most seem to be out of state. Sometimes distance makes it tough to know what the pulse of the fan base really is.

    I second this.

    So the people who have sat next to me for the last 20 years don't exist. So the 30 yr plus season ticket holders that they feature every single home game don't exist. Those 9k that show up to every single game no matter the record are not really there. How many schools here would kill for a constant 9k no matter what happens? But yeah, those people aren't really there. I mean I see them every game, but they aren't there. Or maybe they are just small. I mean every school here gets over 9k a game no matter what. We may be at the bottom of the conf pulling over 9k a game. But that's pretty embarrassing by the lofty MWC standards. I love this board because it teaches me so much about my fan base that 35 years as a season ticket holder never taught me. It's eye opening. We are a small fan base, that is infected with unrealistic expectations of final 4 glory, that is about to be gutted by the incoming pro sports franchises.

    You are spending too much time on this guy. Seriously.
  12. OT Bill Walton

    Walton is a total character and I've never had a problem with him. He makes a game more entertaining. If a color analyst can make a game more entertaining, surely he is doing good at his job. I do think there are times he can add a little more basketball insight to his comments rather than a constant hyperbolic poetry, but overall I find him far less annoying than Dickie V. Honestly, the guy just cracks me up and I appreciate that.
  13. Marvin Menzies is a Joke

    So what are our expectations as the UNLV fanbase? I find it interesting when all these other people are telling us what we think and feel. Especially people who have only met a handful of UNLV fans in their entire life. It's pretty comical. ETA: I find these types of arguments on this board to just be group think based on wildly inaccurate representations of our fans. It's intellectually lazy, imo. But I'm sure @mugtang appreciates the revenue such vacuous discussions generate.
  14. Marvin Menzies is a Joke

    Notice how you UNR fans use a few examples to color all? (See what I did there?)
  15. Marvin Menzies is a Joke

    Ok, I missed your edit. I don't care about your lifetime. It's a stupid measurement. Ph is a fool. And an embarrassment. But he does not represent the majority of UNLV fans no matter how much you want him to. We now have a pro hockey team, who is arguably the best team I the NHL as an expansion team. I have been to one of their games and still hold season tix to UNLV. Everyone who sits next to me still has their season tix and still attends every game. I have no desire to ever see the Raiders. Last game the student section was well represented. I guess it is because VGK was on the road lol. I don't see the pro sports Armageddon that you do. If UNLV wins, the crowds will come. Not so many locals can afford tickets to the pro games. Demographics.
