  1. Back court should be pretty good at least.
  2. I saw yesterday that Stevenson had changed his Twitter account background, which had an illustration of him in a Nevada uniform. Figured that this was going to happen after that.
  3. Been asking myself that for a long time. ... then I remember that most of them went to UNLV.
  4. Those secondary markets are so important in baseball because so much revenue is driven by regional TV deals. This is where there is a big difference between Portland and Vegas when examining baseball as a fit. Metro areas like Bend (which is growing rapidly, too), Medford, and Eugene represent just shy of a million more in population outside the Portland DMA. Of course, that's also why the Mariners may fight expansion in Portland. Regardless, I've always viewed the NBA as the best long-term fit for Vegas. Missed opportunity to me that the league let the NHL and NFL beat them to the punch.
  5. Expanded conference schedules in football and basketball, expanded slates of P5 games, and a continuing move to more P5 v. P5 bowl games. The big boys want to take their ball and go home, and there isn’t anything we can do about it.
  6. Now they’re football only? And paying travel subsidies? I’m sure Liberty is dying to be part of this deal. This topic is pointless on so many levels. I’d rather this conference figure out a schedule that has us playing Boise every year.
  7. Interestingly, there is far less talk of an NFL franchise around here.
  8. The size of the LV TV market is the biggest reason baseball won’t work.
  9. Portland is the best untapped West Coast market for baseball. That BA rundown of all the potential expansion candidates makes that pretty clear.
  10. And I bet flying in an athletic team that needs at least 15 seats would be too much to handle for the commercial puddle jumpers that would service Lynchburg. When Nevada played La. Tech, they would usually fly into Dallas and bus over. It sucked.
  11. Are there a lot of direct flights from Reno to Lynchburg that I am unaware of? Or is Nevada rollin’ so deep that we’re just going to charter volleyball, women’s soccer, baseball, softball, and any other team not named football to play a school that we have nothing in common with? We’ve been down this road before when we shared a conference with schools like Louisiana Tech, Arkansas State, etc., and it always sucks.
  12. Whatever you say... https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Reno,+Nevada/Lynchburg,+Virginia/@39.2704535,-108.4719787,5z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x809940ae9292a09d:0x40c5c5ce7438f787!2m2!1d-119.8138027!2d39.5296329!1m5!1m1!1s0x89b2d97890320401:0xc3b6f35ec820e261!2m2!1d-79.1422464!2d37.4137536!3e0
  13. I know. It’s almost like the whole point of this is so you can tell anyone who might not want to add a religious school that they are wrong for mixing politics and athletics.
