    UNLV at Arkansas State - Game Thread

    Rogers is brutal throwing the ball. I doubt he lasts much longer. He seems to have zero confidence throwing.
  2. Ah here it is... https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2017/11/28/the-latest-conservative-scam-got-exposed-but-its-just-one-piece-of-a-much-bigger-fraud/?utm_term=.d1712c26364a O’Keefe first gained fame in 2009 with a misleadingly edited video in which he claimed he got staffers for a group that did things such as voter registration to give him advice on setting up a prostitution business. By the time O’Keefe’s deceptions were exposed (he later agreed to pay $100,000 to an ACORN employee), Republicans had already cranked up their outrage machine, and in the resulting controversy ACORN essentially imploded and went out of business. O’Keefe then rode that success to legitimization within the conservative movement. ... O’Keefe and three others were arrested and pled guilty to charges after posing as telephone repairmen in an apparent attempt to bug Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office. After calling a staffer at George Soros’s Open Society Institute using an assumed name, he forgot to hang up the phone and left a long message in which he and colleagues discussed their plan to infiltrate the foundation. He put on an Osama bin Laden mask and waded into the Rio Grande. In short, O’Keefe is a fraudster and a buffoon. But here’s what’s important to know about him: He’s a fraudster and a buffoon who is treated like a serious person by substantial parts of the conservative movement. His organization, Project Veritas, had a budget of just under $5 million in 2016. He’s got dozens of employees. And O’Keefe won’t be slowed down by this latest embarrassment, because people on the right will still give him their money. How do I know that? Because it’s what they’ve been doing for decades.
  3. I thought these guys were exposed as total frauds like years ago?
  4. Wait are people seriously believing Project Veritas? Am I missing something here?

    TicketMaster Recruiting Professional Scalpers

    Sadly, they are pretty much the reason I don't go to concerts anymore. Most tickets start at $200 and at least 30% of the price are fees.
  6. The Box Office giant, which has a near monopoly on ticketing, loves getting twice the fees from the scalping industry... https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/a-public-relations-nightmare-ticketmaster-recruits-pros-for-secret-scalper-program-1.4828535 "Company representatives told them Ticketmaster's resale division turns a blind eye to scalpers who use ticket-buying bots and fake identities to snatch up tickets and then resell them on the site for inflated prices. Those pricey resale tickets include extra fees for Ticketmaster. ... "Casey Klein, Ticketmaster Resale director, held a session that was closed to the media called 'We appreciate your partnership: More brokers are listing with Ticketmaster than ever before.' The audience heard that Ticketmaster has developed a professional reseller program and within the past year launched TradeDesk, a web-based inventory management system for scalpers. The company touts it as 'The most powerful ticket sales tool. Ever.'"

    UNLV actual attendance vs. Prairie View

    Agree with UNLV football letting the locals down for forever. As to style of play, I'm not sure that matters as much. I wouldn't say JRob's offense was all that exciting and we had the best attendance years under him... when he was winning. That's really what matters. Sanchez will have to get us to back to back bowl years with UNLV having a chance to knock off some good schools (i.e. top of the MWC or P5) before he will win fans back. That's just where the program is. Pretty much the same for Menzies. Just win baby! Now if UNLV is ranked (lol) and pulling in 4k crowds still, that's cause for concern. People are just done throwing good money after bad right now.

    Never go full Liberal

  9. See also: Obfuscation Gaslighting As with everything today, the people who support Trump will think this is meaningful, the people who do not will think he is trying to distract. The truth will bear out eventually. Until then, chaos continues to reign.

    UNLV at Arkansas State - Game Thread

    They are a damn good team and honestly, I think they are better than we are. I'll be pretty surprised if we manage to win this. Passing game will need to finally show up in this one.

    PV A&M At UNLV -Edited w/ Notes

    Oblad is still a Frosh. Game is different than camp. Rogers is still the second best running QB in this program's history. He is an absolute weapon on the field even if he is one dimensional. We have a power run line and traditional receivers. We aren't built for triple option. We could do a little more read option than we are I think.
  14. I believe the season throne winner gets a tea party and a blue and orange tutu for the event. I wonder how all the tough football alumni who built the program feel about the princess chair and the current players who think its cool?

    MWC West Division goes 3-1 against the PAC-12 today

    Given the huge monetary and recruiting advantages the PAC12 has over our programs, yeah, it is a big deal when we beat them. And it should be a big embarrassment for the PAC12. I dont care where they are at in the standings there is a huge financial gulf between our conferences. So it is a big deal and will remain so no matter how you want to downplay it.
