The one thing im super excited about moving forward is that TJO has not been playing favorites.  We will see how that goes once its all his guys.

To me this was the number one issue with the CDR and MM regimes. Dave showed faves based on recruit status. MM just picked one or two guys and did not show any creativity or flexibility using his roster. Even when having success after being forced to change his lineups, he would go back as soon as he could to his safe spot. He also refused to trurn over the bottom of his roster.

Playing faves destroys locker rooms and will always result in a failure to maximize your roster. If TJO can pick the right players and continue to push all the guys on the roster, UNLV will be better off for it.

After the Nevada game, Isaiah Stevens was quoted as shouting “This is my f#cking city!”

I don’t buy it. I’m pretty sure he said “#SuperiorLifestyle Y’All”

I am very impressed with coaches of both programs. Home game for CSU will be tough four Rebels to overcome.

I have the Rebels in tomorrow’s game.  We continue to improve.  I think we will have a game where multiple guys get going offensively.  I also think we will see better defensive execution.

UNLV has two road wins on the season and needed overtime in both of those against the powerhouse Pokes and a not very good Fresno State team. I think the sheep get the win tomorrow.

Should be a good game today.  UNLV has a bit of a mismatch advantage in the halfcourt with their bigger and beefier guards over our small and quick guys.  CSU has a bit of an advantage inside, especially with Roddy
