    UNLV recruiting

    Meanwhile, staff will keep honing in on four year projects from Zimbabwe or Croatia.

    Hutson will be back in an assistants chair in 3 years.

    Hutson brought in Reinhardt, who was a total cancer/primadonna. Schroyer is good at x’s and o’s, Hutson never was. Recruiting wasn’t an issue under Rice, it was the in game adjustments and development. Hutson never helped in either area. It’s why he never was promoted to HC at SDSU.

    Coaching. Good coaching can cover up a lot of flaws on a team. Talent can’t cover up bad coaching. Rice was an ace recruiter and once (Schroyer) his X and O’s guy left it was apparent that development and in game adjustments were not there anymore despite the talent. Menzies is in the same boat except he doesn’t have an x and o’s guy. The defense was actually pathetic and there was a moment in the MWCT where Menzies should have called timeout but didn’t. He said he looked at the wrong scoreboard and thought he had none. That’s ok at the junior college level, but not at this level. Stuff like that in addition to the major slide last season concern me and wiped out any good feelings I had about the Reno win. The other issue, and it’s the elephant in the room. Nobody at UNLV athletics wants to talk about it but the emergence of pro sports in Las Vegas is gonna put pressure on basketball. Nobody is gonna want to watch a middling CBK team against Utah Valley State. 20 wins on a cupcake schedule isn’t gonna draw flies to a unlv basketball game.

    That’s not winning, at least by UNLV standards. Shit, I could win 20 games with a charmin soft schedule. We barely got 20 wins and we should have won 23-24 with a postseason appearance with the class he brought in, in addition to the soft schedule. It does not take five years to rebuild at UNLV. It’s pretty cut and dry for Menzies and what the goals are. If he wants to do a long term rebuild, he won’t last much longer. The natives will get very restless if Reno continues dominating the MWC and making tournament runs.

    I’m not gonna hype Menzies, because he hasn’t warranted any hype up to this point. He’s just been OK, and I thought he and the team turned a corner with the upset against Reno. Team fell apart in the end. He couldn’t keep McCoy for another season, when everyone knows he needs another year of seasoning. He either starts winning or he’s toast.

    With the amount of offers they are throwing around, I agree. Even an offer/recruitment could help down the line should a player ever transfer. But as I say, results are ultimately what’s going to matter here. Menzies has the ability to pull in top tier talent, we saw that last offseason. So I’m not concerned about Menzies recruiting abilities, rather the focus should be on the development under Menzies. We got some guys that are entering their third year with the program and still won’t be in the conversation for meaningful playing time. That to me, is a problem.

    The bottom line with Menzies is whether he can put together a real good team this coming season. Any sort of setback or another year of zero postseason appearance, he’s toast. So if he doesn’t want to recruit Anthony’s kid, that’s fine because if the team does real well next season then nobody will care. If the wheels come off, then the non-recruitment of Cole will just be another reason to dump Menzies.

    Gotta say, your last couple posts which were well thought out about the JTT commit, has me thinking it was a good pickup by Menzies. Still, we need depth because I imagine that Menzies wants to run something similar to what Weir did at UNM. UNM was exciting to watch and reinvigorated that fan base.

    Why is Marvin recruiting like he’s got 6-7 years left here?

    Please. This professor doesn’t give a rats rear end about the “foundational-concepts” in this country. She clearly does not care about America or the constitution, thinks it’s racist. She’s angry and wants everyone to know it. Plenty of professors feel and teach hate in this country. It’s unfortunate to see.

    Doesn’t matter if the hate is tolerated. As we see here by Fresno State. Not that long ago, someone making that statement would be canned. I was at CU when they shitcanned Ward Churchill over his comments.

    Look, I don’t know if you’ve seen her other tweets but this is someone that hates and is angry. I’m no fan of the Bushes but Barbara was a fine First Lady. As for her hating America, just look at her previous tweets. She had a video popping American balloons. Maybe she took that down but she has a history of doing anti-American demonstrations. Sadly, she’s not the only professor out there with that agenda. There are many more.

    The sad thing is there’s many more like that POS in teaching our students across the country. These people are angry and hate America.
