lol I’m not going to go with the conspiracy theories, Marvin is respected by the coaching fraternity, and people who know basketball. That’s the only reason commentators, line makers, coaches and others make favorable comments on him... not some type of mind game to put UNLV n a whole lol...people genuinely follow him like they probably do any other coach that’s in proximity of their profession...

 

Ed being a SDSU honk is not a conspiracy theory.

Haha you got me on that one , I don’t know nothing about that. 

 

But as far as the media, the people making numbers and such I don’t think them speaking favorably is because they want UNLV to be mediocre they are just telling it like it is.

Menzies will be back.  I do think there will be some defections at the bottom of the roster.  Sljivancanin will probably retire.  Beck will probably be asked to leave.  Not sure about Coupet or Green.

Ed is an SDSU graduate, covered their athletics in the past. He’s a homer for them. SDSU has just swept UNLVMBB 3-0 this season. Why in the world would he or his pal Dutcher want Marv to go anywhere?  His line of “DRF can’t sell the fans on firing Marv” is totally laughable.

When we fired Carter it was announced within a hour of us losing in the mwc tournament.   What’s taking you so long UNLV?

Why hire a coach now when you can wait until recruiting season is over?  #UNLVBasketball

He said after Menzies was hired that he was under investigation from the NCAA.  I called him out on it but he deleted the tweet.

Eustachy was feeding him that because he wanted the job.

Takes time to get Pitino deals and backdoor connections to stripper clubs, cocaine distributors and escort services - once all that's in place then Pitino signs the contract and recruits can be entertained properly on visits to UNLV :str8pimp:

Funny people shit on Ed Graney.

Dude is all about Vegas now. Been that way. Most people hate him because he would shit on UNLV when Rice was underachieving weekly.

 

Rice fan boys hated that.

Even as a UNLV fan I hated it.

Then some of his words were ringing true.

Ed isnt defending Marvin because he is mediocre. Lmao damn people are wild.

Pretty common for an SD to meet with the coach right after a season concludes - It's a little past noon now, maybe this will be a Friday afternoon news dump like happens in politics when there's bad news :shrug:

I'm still firmly in the thinking that DRF meets with Menzies (as she might have today) and they go over the good the bad the ugly and assess what needs to change in the next 12 months to address concerns............thinking Menzies gets the same message Sanchez received......that Menzies needs to step it up next season and even cut some of the dead wood on the roster to free up scholarships for impact recruits and even transfers that can bring UNLV closer to the NCAA's and for sure the NIT next season.

Menzies as of right now as two years left on his contract..........he's heading into the next to last year of his contract so next season will be the season that determines Menzies fate.........that way she can cut him loose with only a 1 year buyout and Menzies gets the fair chance to know he's got to improve .......and it also removes the "lame duck coach" factor that can affect recruiting ( the old "that coach only has 1 year left" that other schools can use against UNLV ) .

This also has DRF on record has not knee-jerking hires and fires based on whims and short term evaluations (which wouldn't be a good reputation for UNLV) ........DRF has both coaches on notice in the same academic year (2019-20) where if they perform thet get more time and if they don't DRF is in position to bring in her coaches.

If there is no announcement by Monday, he's definitely staying.

Serious question: Is there any concern that firing Menzies would have a negative impact on gathering the interest of future head coaching candidates? Dave Rice was fired midseason. That could be followed up by firing Menzies after only his 3rd season but really only his 2nd as his first was destined to be a disaster once he was hired as late as he was. Could that make candidates weary of taking the UNLV job?
