    I had a bunch of comments, deleted them all. 

    Lowly, second-year head coach schools a multi-decade head coach. CKK and staff, one of the best coached games of the year. Great use of TO’s down to the end. Good scrappy fight by the guys. 


    I do that all the time, lol, I've gotten so I stay away from the board during the games, as well as twitter.

    Kevin did a good job last night, I kept waiting for the melt down at the end, maybe they figured it out? Who knows..

    I was flabbergasted at times by his rotation, but it worked well. Now Nowell who was at the end of the bench plays big minutes (and definitely earned em); EP and Hall didn't play much bc of foul trouble, Muoka once again barely plays at all.  Then he sits Gilbert on the bench for almost all of crunch time, probably cuz of his newfound fondness of turnovers.

    I was really impressed by Nowell in this game. His shot looks effortless and he was a factor on both ends. Glad whatever was keeping him out of the lineup was cleared up.

    Nowell looks great, he's pretty athletic, and looks like he can be really smooth later, actually. I'm also glad he's figuring it out.

    That was a hard fought battle. Fantastic effort by the Rebels!

    Anyone notice all the coaches are dressed in suits tonight? 

    LR dressed but hasn't seen the court.

    Interested to see how they come out in the 2nd half, need way more from Keshon...

    Coaches vs cancer thing, suits and sneakers..

    Parquet goes out with 4 fouls and immediately nevada getting easier looks

    And mostly why UNLV lost 6 out 7 while he was out.

    Now if we can get Lu Rod back..

    Las Vegas

  3. We'll see.


    The concept of a dual-threat quarterback is no stranger to UNLV as the home of the rebels is home to one of the greatest dual-threat QB of all time. From 1981-1984, Randall Cunningham was the Rebels’ main man and he parlayed his impressive college career into three All-Pro selections and four Pro Bowls. His number is retired by the university. UNLV’s last bowl win (2000 Las Vegas Bowl) came on the shoulders, arms, and legs of Jason Thomas. Originally a USC commit, John Robinson brought him to Vegas where they achieved the greatest amount of success the Rebels have had this millennium. Now the lights shine bright and Allegiant Stadium is set to witness the next physical form of greatness. A lengthy, 6’5, left-handed duel-threat quarterback has the Mountain West on alert as Barry Odom looks to give UNLV its first winning season in about a decade. Let’s look at the talented and promising Doug Brumfield.

    Lol at the UNLV hires Barry Odom thread which wasn't started until December 2 but nevertheless has 626 posts and counting. Isn't there a Rebel Net or some such thing anymore on which you guys can complain?

    Or maybe your president has an office on campus you guys can picket in front of? Hell, what about the Fertitta family? Maybe you can locate their home and picket there too since they seem to perpetually support crummy coaches?

    I have no idea why you even care? You don’t have to drop in.

    I'm betting that Lon is hired as a special assistant to the head coach for next season to try to lower the pitchforks. 

    Although embarrassing for Kevin, that would be a good move for him, but for UNLV, not so much if it doesn't help. The AD is already in a tough spot without having to fire Lon as well as Kevin, IF it doesn't work. If it does, then it's a great move, lol.

    Jaded. Blackshear stole the inbounds play anyway. And that would have been a ticky-tack foul, while that was most definitely contact to the head. Reviewable and there was no question.

    There WAS no question that Udeze committed a flagrant.

    Mash also got absolutely mugged in first OT, and should have been at the line, but they call a jump ball? Some odd calls this game...

    Good game though Pack.

    imagine snatching defeat from the jaws of victory with a 5 second violation out of a timeout followed by a 30 second violation and then giving up possession on a jump ball….

    That 5 second call was actually 4 seconds, and that 'jump ball' was a mugging. Udeze was fouled, but shouldn't have slapped the guy. That was the game.

    I would imagine Kevin talks to his father quite a bit, I'm sure Lon doesn't want to see Kevin fail but my guess would be Lon doesn't interject too much.  I think Harper has to give him time, he's not Arroyo who as you said wasn't a well liked guy locally. I can't imagine a situation in which he doesn't get another year outside of having someone big lined up. 

    And signed, sealed, and delivered..so, KK isn't going anywhere, lol.

    How was Nevada not called for a foul prior?!?! 

    There have been 3 questionable calls at the end of regulation through the second OT that went the pack's way. Udeze was getting mugged, but dang, you don't slap the guy off.

    Absolutely. Ask anyone, except UNLV fans who are apparently still bitter about him pumping his fist at the crowd in a moment of excitement when a last second shot was called off.  You act like he kicked Dave Rice in the nuts and stole his lunch money or something. Probably time to let it go - you’ll feel better.

    Well I wasn’t even going there, I was laughing at gracious, well liked and respected, lol. No one in this conference thinks he’s gracious, they think he’s a whiner. Except some Boise fans..

    The Rebel Net dorks are already moaning about how unfair it was to let Rice go and pining for UNLV to hire Augmon, lol!!! 

    Ugh, that would be another disaster. NO MORE ASSISTANTS!!

    Eric, make the call to New York, lol.

  12. I really hope KK can learn to coach, because he's probably going to have to be here for a while. But if the time comes that we DO hire a new coach, I would love to see them hire NO ONE previously affiliated with UNLV. No former players, no coaches sons, no assistants, no coaches from small schools. No training wheels, SPEND the $$$, get an actual coach in here who knows what he's doing. They have spent the last decade trying to save a dime with their hires, starting with CDR, and they have killed the program. I can't say this enough, SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY.

    Until then, it is what it is.
