'Member when you silly UNLV fans were talking about how you were noticeably better than Boise and kept posting this gif?

Image result for soon gif

Ahhhhh.  Good times.

Menzies will have you guys excited again and competing for the conference but it was silly to think you could go from last place to first in one season.

they are definitely letting us have it, lol. and it's almost funny, because i had been thinking last fall during football that boise fans were pretty quiet considering their history, and that i wished some of our basketball fans would just quit talking so much trash, we would slide under the radar a lot easier. it all works out in the end, i guess.

Oh, I know we're incorrigible.

Basketball success is kinda new to us still.  We know what we have in our football program by now.  Personally I reserved my trash talking for SDSU fans because of how unbearable they were the last two years.  Our football fan base has been humbled pretty well and most are just happy things are looking good and we actually performed in conference.

Trey Woodbury goes up for a killer slam and is fouled and comes down Hard! He’s still down. Bonanza coach talking shit to Clark asst coach and they have to be separated. Smh game just started but it’s 14-2 Clark.

I'm guessing it's because some posters were fairly condescending towards the MW and, more specifically, Boise.

I certainly don't speak for everyone, but I'd venture to say that the vast majority of Boise fans think highly of UNLV and the vast majority of it's fans. 

UNLV still represents a good win for Boise, even in their down years. There's respect there.

i definitely know why we are getting it, and it's well deserved.

and yes, a win over unlv is still a good win, but some of the other fans on here (mostly from our puppy brothers up north) will never admit that, since they're on top at the moment. might not be a bad thing if you guys would take them down a notch this weekend, ok? :P

I would love nothing more. I posted at the beginning of the season on the Boise board that this was the season that the Broncos needed to win the conference. Most of the power teams are down and Boise has a veteran team capable of doing it. It gets more difficult for Boise every year after this one.

Boise has had a small window with the MW being down. Reality, Boise being on top in football is good for the conference... Boise being on the top in basketball, isn't... but I'll take it every chance they can muster it.

Careful, you're gonna give the entire UNLV fanbase unrealistic expectations about their program. :BananaComputer:

They will lose in the first game.  Competitive game s a pipe dream.  We lost to New Mexico who lost to UTEP.  That tells you all you need to know.  I’m only 27, and I realize that the past is the past.  Some of ya’ll are in you 50’s and haven’t woken up yet.  I got that going for me.

First off, youngster I'm not in in my 50s and not living in the past.  You maybe 27, but you got the reading comprehension of a 1st grader.  Nowhere in my initial post did I say anything remotely close to what you interpreted.  Tell you what...take some time away from this site.  Save up your paper route money and go buy yourself another brothel special.  You need to clear your head kid.

Boise is a solid program, but they still haven't done much to make noise nationally. They have also benefitted from some of the top programs all being down at the same time. Rice does it the right way, with developing solid 4 year players. So it is sustainable, at least.

After seeing what Musselman has accomplished in the last few years, I'm not sure it's the only "right way".

Agreed but I think it's possible that Muss could leave the place in tatters with his current approach. There could really be a lack of foundation and the program could need a drastic rebuild.

I'm not suggesting that Muss's way is "wrong". He is an incredible coach. Iowa State has shown that you can build a contender relying on transfers. I'd also imagine that I would be giving too much credit to Leon if I were to say that 9 out of 10 ADs would hire Muss over Leon.

Having said that, there are pitfalls to that strategy. If Leon leaves this year, he will be leaving behind a roster that can not only compete next year but future years, as well. If Muss leaves it will likely be a UNLV type rebuild. Even if guys like Caroline and the Martins don't graduate transfer, the roster is bare after next year.
