And we call you Fresneck because if the shoe fits. 

is red FSU Bulldog gear still banned in Fresno area bars and clubs because it was associated with a gang outfit?

and Laxalt is Pete Domenici 's  bastard son. (if anyone didn't know)

That story is an alternative, manufactured truth, intended to protect him from his true fathers name.

Adam is aTargaryen. 

He can talk to snakes too.

I'm not really sure what to think of Laxalt.  But if half of what I've heard about Sisolak is true, he is a top tier scumbag who should probably be behind bars.

I was watching Family Fued the other day and a former wolfpack bball player was one of the contestants. He said he played at "The University of Nevada Reno"

When I was growing up in Reno, everyone called it UNR.  It's still my first impulse, but I usually check it so as not to offend the Nevada purists.

Everyone still says UNR when referring to the university. One of my sons is going to UNR. 

However, all of my Wolf Pack gear says...NEVADA.

And all of the networks and media refer to the Wolf Pack as...NEVADA.

NV, NV Reno, UNR, are all fine with me.  I too grew up calling it UNR.   

Cal, Cal Berkley, Berkley, UCB are all synonymous as well.  And I doubt any of their alums get bent out of shape if someone calls them "Berkley."  I don't know why some NV fans are so insistent on being called "Nevada" exclusively.  It's kind of petty, IMO.

Why is this an important subject for Nevadans? Or, is it just important for some alums?  And if so, why? I agree with Shark Tanked.  There is currently 5 pages of hooey on this topic.  (And yes, I know I just contributed another useless comment on this useless topic)

About 15 years ago at a Hawaii home game, me talking to a Nevada fan...

"Me: We like Nevada-Reno and...."

Nevada Fan: Hold on!  It's just Nevada!  How would you feel if we called you guys Hawaii-Manoa all the time?!?!?!"

Me: Uh....why would we care?  The Campus is in Manoa..."

I recommend going with "Cal", or "UCB".

But why say Nevada-Reno? It's redundant.

You would think a school that boasts of high academic standards would be better at spelling. B)

So, let me get this straight.  Some people preferred the guy who--at the behest of the Koch Brothers and similar to what Walker attempted in Wisconsin--would have gutted the university's already meager funding over the other guy because the other guy might have you attach Reno to your name?

Or maybe some of us looked at two, not so stellar choices and voted for Laxalt.

I don't know--It just flows better to me.  Like UNLV is Nevada Las Vegas.  It's was never originally an intended insult.  (Except now that everyone knows that it bothers Nevada fans...)
