    OT: Vegas Golden Knights & NHL Playoffs Thread

    So just because the other teams couldn't pull off what VGK is doing in year 1, we should just be thankful to be where we are at? No, you play to win championships. You play to win period. If VGK can pull this off, it will be one of the biggest sports stories ever for the NHL. In the league's 100th season an expansion team wins the Stanley Cup? Unreal if it happens.

    T minus 100 days...........

    Well, it can't get much worse. New DC should help instill a new attitude and fire on that side of the ball. The progression of the DBs will be the main determining factor on whether they improve as a unit or not. They have been horrible the past few years.

    MWC-MVC Challenge Matchups

    It's not all about Tark, but his shadow loops large over UNLV hoops. What he accomplished in this town was unreal. Vegas has always had a small town feel even when pushing near 2 million people. It's always been and still is a town of who you know. Back then, everyone who was anyone was at the games. Vegas was always seen as an outlaw town, and Tark and those Rebel teams embraced that. Vegas always loves a winner, and Tark did it at the highest level. No one will ever have the success Tark had because the town in different now, more international. For those of us who were there, Tark's legacy will never be topped.

    Such a fun team to follow. Believe me, what they are doing is not missed on those of us that have been in this town a long time. This season is really bringing back the feelings of the late 80s/early 90s Runnin' Rebels when the town and the nation was in love with them. This makes it a little easier to swallow the demise of the Rebels. It also shows me that this town will never be UNLV's again. Just wait till the Raiders show up. Vegas will go crazy for them. Tough times ahead for UNLV if they can't start winning.
  5. So you start a thread trolling UNLV, and you are surprised someone tried to defend them? Isn't that what trolls want? You typed a 3 paragraph post. You really that bored? I know Reno is a boring town, but there has to be more to do than wasting time trolling UNLV fans on a message board. But whatever floats your boat.

    Bad game by VGK. Looked slow compared to SJ. The Sharks have played real well the past few games. This series looks like it will go 7 games easily. Gotta win Friday night to put the pressure on San Jose.

    San Jose is playing better than I thought the last two games. Still, this should be 3-0 VGK right now. I'll take 2-1 though. Complete the sweep in SJ on Wed then bring it home on Friday. The Park is going to be insane on Friday night.

    It's Happening.

    Not that I'm happy with it, but UNLV will play BYU in basketball Dec. 15th at T-Mobile Arena. LSU vs St. Mary's is also on the bill.

    New Mexico peeps

    Tomasitas is awesome. Love the Roast Beef burrito. They have opened one in ABQ according to my in-laws who live there. There is so much good food in ABQ and Sante Fe. You really can't go wrong with any of the recommendations, but if you have to choose one then The Shed in Sante Fe is it.

    Big Dance

    I remember a MWC coach not too long ago who once stated "you don't mess with happy." With in a week he left for the PAC-12. Just sayin', big money changes a lot of people's perspectives.
  12. So UNR will be worse next year losing their top 4 players?

    UNLV assistant Jeter to Minnesota.

    All depends how you look at it. Jeter is a former HC from that area. If Pitino gets canned, maybe Jeter sets himself up to be the holdover or interm HC if one is needed. Maybe plays himself into the job? Who knows. Still, moving back to the area you are familiar with for more pay seems like reason enough for me. I'm actually happy this happened as Jeter was supposedly in charge of defense at UNLV, and this was by far the worst defensive team in school history.

    UNLV assistant Jeter to Minnesota.

    Can't blame the guy for going to a program in a better conference. Sure it comes with a higher pay. It's what you do as an assistant college basketball coach.

    Utah State Fires Duryea

    This is from wikipedia, "At Virginia Tech, Williams negotiated an incentive-laden deal that includes several perks outside of his starting annual salary of $2.3 million, most notably a rollover clause, a minimal — and one-sided — buyout provision after three years, the creation of new staff positions and the ability to earn additional ...May 21, 2014" Not sure UNLV could get the money together to get Buzz. You're talking about leaving the ACC for the MWC. You can't just pay him the same. You'd have to go up to 3-4 million a year. No way we could pull that off.
