    New Mexico at UNLV

    UNLV is plus 5pts. Sounds about right considering how badly UNM has been playing lately and this year. So many games this year could go either way considering the sad state of the MWC overall. Every team not named Wyoming and San Jose State will look better than they actually are when considering the level of competition in conference play. Oh well another battle of Titans in the T&M. I'll be there as well.

    Yeah, it's tough to really think much other than the Rebs shot decent percentages everywhere and scored a bunch. Now things get real.

    Alford is a small swing at mediocrity. We already did that. I'd rather keep Marv for the next 2 years and move on than spend 4 or 5 years playing Alfords game. Pass

    I would expect this thread and Marv to be around this year and next. Nothing gained with a mid season circus like a few years ago. Plenty of time to do things right but that hasn't't been our history for decades.

    1st you make a point and then you go on to prove it. Classic.

    Well I guess my opinions and insights are invalid because I don't post at an acceptable frequency or repetition to pass your requirements Thank you for letting me know what is acceptable to be validated.

    I thought about phrasing it that way but well...you know.

    Qwelish qualifies everything to have things both ways. He's come up with every excuse possible to justify the state of the program while at the same time being able to say that he always knew that Marv wouldn't get the job done. Come on vote in the poll, take a stand one way or the other. Of yeah you are waiting for the 1st 6 conference games to make up your mind. What does the easiest start in the history of UNLV in the MWC have to do with making a decision after over 70 games of watching Marv's coaching....and recruiting. Maybe start a new poll "If Marv went back to NMSU would his team dominate the conference again". Oh yeah that wouldn't be a relevant topic just like it isn't relevant here 3 years later. So far he has been somewhere between a failure to mediocre at best. This year once again is on track to be much of the same. Expecting 2 or 3 more "Blowout Loses" says quite a bit about the state of the program. I agree with you

    Depending on who was writing the articles last year UNLV had the #6 or #12 recruiting class in the nation. Wow that certainly made a difference. We've shown a remarkable improvement this year as a result as well. Wait until next year's recruits come in, oh yeah they'll be Freshmen so will be incapable of stopping a layup as well. So need 1 more year but wait the following year they'll only be Sophomores so it's really 2021 but then we'll be losing 5 seniors so we'll need to rebuild so 2022 but then to replace the seniors we'll need 5 more Freshmen so really 2022 or 2023. I have no idea how other teams facing the same challenges seem to improve. Oh yeah fall back on the dumpster fire excuse from 3 years ago. Marv has a plan though and it will only take 4 or 5... or more years for it to all come together....if he can get some better recruits.

    Nothing to see here. Everything is on schedule, young players, this is a normal state of events for every program with young guys, wait until our next game and then of course next year's comedy. After all it's all about recruiting.

    Other than not being capable of playing 1 minute while our front court has lost it's 3 best players. He has really progressed after 2 1/2 years of good coaching and player development, Huh?

    If you land on Marv's $hit list you don't play. Look at how much better Beck has gotten over the past few months since landing on Marv's list. Look at Dembelle's production as the season went on this year. Look at how Diong played when the season started vs his last few games. Djordjije won't see the floor until there are only 4 Rebels left standing. In game coaching is more like throw it against the wall and see what sticks.

    Crowd size? One end of the arena was full with cadets the remaining 80% of the arena was maybe at 20% capacity. The end opposite the cadets was EMPTY. While in Marv's coaching career he basically has the UNR game last year as his only signature win he does have signature losses, many many of them. Last night is one more on the list and the 2nd or 3rd this year. He has allowed multiple records set by our opponents over the past few years. So according to Marv we lost last night due to how loud the arena was, size of their guards, AFA executed with military precision and discipline. Amari mentioned that every time they fought back into the game that AFA would make a run. Amari, you never were in the game after the 1st 2 or 3 minutes, you lost both halves. Rebels allowed one of the worse offensive team in D1 to set their personal D1 record since 1999. 57 points in the paint. During layup after layup after layup your head coach looked like a deer in the headlights of an oncoming truck. He does not have a clue what to do once a game starts and there is a little adversity. Then again maybe AFA has better recruiting than UNLV. Oh that's right, they don't recruit. Oh well, after the SJSU at home on Saturday all of this will be forgotten and we'll be back on track, right?

    It feels great to be involved in a record setting game. AFA all time record high scoring game in MWC.

    He doesn't have a clue how to make corrections. Just stand there and rolls his eyes.
