    Rick Pitino to UCLA wow

    Thanks for the response. I always found it interesting that Tark was always the bullseye for NCAA investigations, when you pretty much knew that every major program was operating in the same sort of way. Aside from Tark being so outspoken, and willing to confront the powers to be in the NCAA, was also part of his problem the fact that UNLV rose to the top out of nowhere from a nowhere conference, and didn't have the pedigree of the Kentucky's, UCLA's, North Carolina's, etc.? Looking back on those Nike coaching clinics, with all of the top coaches at the time under contract with Nike (Tarkanian, Boeheim, Thompson, Coach K, Valvano, Carnasecca, Olson, Raveling, Harrick, Calhoun, etc.), I'm sure they all pretty much knew what each one was up to, and that they all pretty much slept in the same bed. Pretty much the same landscape 30 years later.

    4UNLV, serious question. I always liked Tark and thought he was great for college basketball. When I first started teaching and coaching in the mid 80's, I attended a Nike coaching clinic in Vegas every year for about 10 years. Tark was one of my favorite sessions to attend. I also taught and coached near Fresno for a couple of years years while he as at Fresno State. Thought he did a great job there as well. I never paid attention in detail for all that went down in Tark's battle with the NCAA. Just read all the "on the surface" stuff about how much he "cheated" and of course the infamous hot tub photo of the players and that gambler. So my sincere question, did Tark run a "clean" program, or were there a lot of things done where one just looked the other way, or a lot was swept under the rug, as was (and still is) the case at a lot of the major, successful programs? I'm not looking for a complete history lesson in your response, just a simple in context response. Thanks! Btw, your contributions to this board are outstanding. When we all strip away all of our "smart-assedness" as posters on this board, IMO, you rank as one of the best.

    BYU vs UNLV - T-Mobile Arena

    Congrats Rebs. Tough shot to knock down. Ended up being an exciting game to watch live. Pretty sparse crowd, but those that were here got into it as the game got tight. As always, the golf these past 3 days in Vegas has been great. Now it’s back to the snow and cold for a few months. Good luck on your season.

    Is Utah State keeping BYU out of the MWC?

    Sorry Jack, I stand corrected. For some reason I thought all of the WAC members came on board together, but I was wrong.

    C'mon Jack, you are a much better poster than this. Utah State joined the MWC 8.5 years ago. If you look at the totality of the BYU/USU series, I can only see one stretch of two 3 for 1's, and more 2 for 1's over the past 30 years. I have no problem with H and H, as it is how it should be. Utah State is on the rise right now, and BYU isn't. It will be interesting to see if USU can maintain an upward trajectory, and I hope they do.

    Is Utah State keeping BYU out of the MWC?

    Nope. I referenced this season, last season, the season before that, and the season before that....well, a smart guy like you can even figure this one out. You arbitrarily pointed out a 5 year stretch and I arbitrarily pointed out a 30 year stretch. Like I said, what's your point? The only thing truly relevant will be the results the next time the two teams square off in 2019. And even then, the relevance lasts for about 4 hours. So BYU got 3 for 1 over the last 30 year stretch? Thought so.

    Who said anything about what happened 30 years ago? So in your world, things that happened in the past have no relevance for you today? Okay.

    Welcome to the MWC Board. Have you ever met LakeBison by chance?

    Nope, just a follow up. No answer to my inquiry? I bother defining "sad" all over for you again. You really like that word. Almost as much as I like referencing Dave Rice.

    Is Utah State keeping BYU out of the MWC?

    And 5 of the last 30. What's your point? Look, the Aggies have had a great season, and I for one hope they can build on what Coach Wells has put in place. I have both a daughter and son-in-law who are USU graduates and we have a lot of fun with the BYU/USU rivalry. For anyone to think that one institution has no need for the other when it comes to athletics is stupid. BYU vs Utah State might very well be the end of season November conference rivalry game in the not too distant future. Who knows what will happen to CFB come 2024. Then again, with Hair in charge, there are no end of season conference rivalry games.

    Nothing to do with the topic at hand, but just out of curiosity, why do you fall down and laugh at every comment you yourself make? Btw, did you ever let Dave Rice, Mr. Rebel himself, know how much he was truly appreciated in Provo?
  13. Always wondered what happened to this former Ute head basketball coach. Guy was pure gold back in the day.

    No Bowl For Wyoming

    Sorry, but BYU gets first crack at making that happen.
