What about the fact that we’re playing on Facebook?  Wouldn’t you agree that’s small time?

AGGIES AND REBELS SERIES HISTORY
• Utah State and UNLV will be meeting for the 24th time in series history this weekend, with USU owning a 16-7 advantage, including an 8-3 home record. The first game played in the series was on Sept. 25, 1971, in Logan with USU winning, 27-7. USU won the last meeting between the two teams in Las Vegas, 52-28, on Oct. 21, 2017. USU also won the last meeting between the two teams in Logan, 34-20, on Oct. 25, 2014. The last time UNLV won a game in the series was on Aug. 30, 2008, in Las Vegas by a final score of 27-17, while its last win in Loan was on Aug. 30, 2007, by a final score of 23-16. Overall, USU has won 13 of the last 16 games played in the series, including four straight.

 

UNLV is one of the few schools who's number we seem to have, kind of like NMSU and Wyoming (at least historically).  I was in LV for that 2008 loss, yikes.  I did have a fun time afterwords as I recall.

70-0 Aggies win.

No way Sanchez can pull this team together to make it competitive.

So Vegas lost a game it probably should have won?! That’s how sports work sometimes. UNM is playing for their coaches career. Motivation is a funny thing with kids.

And I’m not sure what you all expected? 10 win seasons because Sanchez was really good at Gorman where it had 100x the resources of virtually every other program on its schedule. Or simply a better product than you had prior to his arrival? I personally think the guy has improved Vegas football but like Polian he has benefited from one of the worst schedules in the last few decades down there.

Seriously doubt anyone was thinking of a 10 win season, but 6 to 7 wins was within reality and UNLV just pissed away what was to be one of those wins and there's not much room to make up for that loss - This USU game back in August was probably a 50-50 proposition for UNLV to win it, but after seeing USU get off to a fantastic start and with UNLV really bringing any positives to a screeching halt just last week.........this game sure seems to be one that UNLV has a1 to 10% chance of winning where back in August it was 40 to 50% game.

If UNLV had lost a close one to UNM, there might have been some "woulda coulda shoulda" debates that give some hope to upcoming games.......but UNLV failed miserably in every aspect of the game vs NM and that opened the massive chasm of doubt that always is lingering in UNLV fans minds.

That last game cast a huge cloud over everything about the FB program 

has UNLV won that game in the fashion that NM won........we wouldn't even be close to discussing firing Sanchez, shuttering the program, pie in the sky coaching wish lists, and on and on........the only debate would be Rogers vs Gilliam at QB

Vegas has this at USU -27.0 today.  Most folks appear to be taking USU and the points.

I do not trust this.

If the rebs actually show up I think they’ll easily cover.

I just remember how dominant the rebs were in that first half vs USU last year, before Armani went down. Is the drop off from Armani (who is a poor passer) to Gilliam that wide of a gap? If so, what is there to lose by putting in Oblad and seeing what he can do?

USUs poor offense scored 7 TDs in that game last year. I don't think the problem for UNLV will be on offense.

It was 28-14, and the rebs had already amassed over 300 yds on the ground, when Armani went down right before half time. They put in Palandech and they gain less than 100 total yds the rest of the game and the Ags go on to outscore them 38-0 the rest of the way. If you didn’t see the correlation between Armani’s injury and how the rest of the game played out, then you weren’t paying attention, because we weren’t slowing them down at all. We might’ve still put up 52, but the rebs were on pace to easily break 60, prior to the injury.
