You won't get an arguement from me on our stadium. After all the millions spent on the renovation, it's now harder to navigate the stadium at field level, and there's still cracks in the concrete steps and bent railings everywhere. She needs to be retired, but now that won't happen for at least 20 years.

I'm getting a community letter together to send to Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Warren Buffet to fund a new stadium. I'm having Sarah Mclachlan sing a sad song, an orphan tug at their shirts, and a puppy on their table in front of them while they read it.

Get Kanye West involved - He's been begging Bill Gates for $$ on Twitter :str8pimp:

UNLV dropping football is just mental porn for a mass UNR fan masturbation session - It's a fantasy they've dreamed of for years 

Couldn't be more wrong.  Rivalry game, playing for the cannon, increased attendance;  the Rebels closing down the FB program would be very damaging to Nevada.  We'd actually like to see you play better to increase interest in the games.

This should be the thinking of NV fans, but alas, there is glee to be found in the others woes between UNR & UNLV :cheers:

Never speak kindly to, or about, a Rebel. Especially during game week.

I disagree. Why should we care? Vegas ended the rivalry for a number of years, it clearly didn't.

I think the lvrj opinion piece is shortsighted. But as someone pointed out it’s clickbait... and funny.

So everybody gets a trophy, and there's no difference between Berkeley and UNR, but there is somehow a difference between UNR and UNLV.  Now, you do understand that 99.9% of the people see a fundamental difference between Berkeley and UNR while viewing UNR and UNLV as essentially the same.

To answer another poster, I wasn't condemning academic rankings nor pretending there's no difference between schools.  I was pointing out the hypocrisy of those who see no difference between their school and schools higher up the food chain while talking academic smack to schools they view as inferior. 

And as for those "not real degrees," you do know that a Silicon Valley VC firm or blue chip New York consulting firm will crawl over a hundred UNR grads with a real degree to hire that Swarthmore history major.

Find a single instance where Nevada fans have compared us to Berkeley or any other top school. I think we're quite realistic of Nevada's place in the academic world (which is low, but constantly improving). 

Posturedoc, is correct you're just here bragging that you were able to leave Reno and get a Big Ten education. Well done Victor, you should be very proud. You're a good poster for the most part and certainly bring up some interesting arguments, no doubt that that you enjoy the smell of your own farts a bit too much though.

While I stand by the statement of the Tier 1 colleges UNR has and the quality of education they offer. No way in hell did I ever claim or do I ever think it's on the same level as Cal or Standford or the Ivy Leage or some of the Big 10 schools. Never said it. I'm just saying we have a few renowned schools and programs (examples: mining and geological engineering, geophysics,and the seismology lab). UNR is a great regional University with a few elite programs.

I haven't read this thread yet, so if this is already posted, my apologies. but since it is rivalry week...

 

That’s Sheel’s at Legends in Reno. That shirt is from Reno Envy. You might think it’s derogatory, but it’s Reno as F$&@. The founders of Reno Envy are Sigma Nu’s.
