    O.T. Look at Bama's schedule for next season

    You could make an argument that some of the teams that UCLA and USC play are almost on the FCS level

    In LSU's defense, Miami was a preseason Top 10 but fell on their face this season so when that was scheduled I think that might have been though the best OOC game SEC had this year.

    Is Utah State keeping BYU out of the MWC?

    BYU is where they want to be, even though they haven't been as successful in West Coast Conference as they thought they would. So I don't see BYU coming back anytime soon unless there is some blowup and all that. USU has as much power as anyone else in MWC with regards to BYU. But I think the chances of UTEP joining MWC is better than BYU joining.

    No Bowl For Wyoming

    I don't know how UNLV does their stuff down there, sometimes i wonder if UNLV does either, however I can only say for how it is run up here.

    No its not. Talk to the Board of Regents and the legislature in Nevada it is very specific, UNR DOES NOT own Lawlor Events Center. If UNR wants to use it, they pay rent to Board of Regents because they are the ones that own it under the state legislature. The women's and men's basketball teams had to pay rent for practice and game days up until 2011 when the BoR Ok'd the teams not paying rent there anymore. However any time any department at the university wants to use Lawlor they have to pay a rent check to BofR. When UNR has their graduation in December, they have to pay to use it. I'm sorry you and sactown are so butthurt by something you two developed in your minds as the truth and are trying to find ways to make them true when they aren't. But I guess the BYU hatred runs deep for you two.

    No we don't own Lawlor Events Center. Board of Regents owns Lawlor and every time an event is held there they must pay rent to Board of Regents. The only people except from paying rent is Nevada men's and women's basketball. I wouldn't be surprised if Thomas & Mack Center in Vegas is under the same deal. And again no, UNLV has no leverage with the deal, they are piggybacking on it because that is the only way they can get a new stadium to play in and get out of Sam Boyd. However visitors to Las Vegas are also paying the tax as well as they put a hotel tax as a way to pay for it also. So every person coming and staying in Vegas is paying for it. Same way they helped raise money for Thomas & Mack back in the day.

    They don't. I don't know what world you live in but UNLV and UNR have absolutely no sway for something like that. They don't even have sway to get more funding for universities. Hell Nevada doesn't even own Lawlor that is an outside company and same with the new stadium in Vegas. UNLV doesn't own it, this is the Raiders stadium. Hell the Raiders tried like hell to not have UNLV involved at all in the stadium. I think Raiders might be leasing it to UNLV but not 100% sure on that part.

    My understanding was UNLV had like 0-5% influence on the stadium. The Stadium Authority and Clark County Commission are the ones dealing with the Raiders. MWC and Hair have absolutely nothing to do with the stadium building. Hair can only lobby to keep the bowl agreement but the bowl can sign a contract with whoever they want and starting in 2020 they want SEC team there which will probably bring in more money than a P12 vs. MWC game. Wow we got all kinds of crazies on the board tonight

    Nevada v Arkansas State in Arizona Bowl

    Yup was going to mention that as well. I remember when Arkansas St beat Nevada in Jonesboro I believe it was can't remember the name of the city they play in, on a Hail Mary pass.

    O.T. Look at Bama's schedule for next season

    With more zero weeks games and Thanksgiving being a week later next year, I wouldn't be surprised to see more teams doing the double bye week for next season. Nevada's first game next year is August 31st so they could schedule two bye weeks as well. The big boys don't usually schedule good OOC oppoosition because well their conferences are so good that they rely on conference and championship games as they have done for years. You schedule a I-AA game, then you schedule maybe one decent OOC game, then schedule two home money games. That is the formula. Hell at one time I think it was like 15 years that Florida didn't leave the state of Florida for an OOC game.

    The bowl isn't coming to end, our agreement with the bowl is coming to an end. The Las Vegas Bowl is still around, just moving stadiums and they want to replace MWC with SEC. However one of the new bowls coming in 2020 that was approved by NCAA certification board, is suppose to have an agreement for MWC team. However the game is in the midwest or east if i remember correctly.
