DON'T USE MY WORDS AGAINST ME

You're good.  What I'm really looking for is a UNLV resume worthy of the B12 from Rob as he claimed. After that we can look closer at the final 4 run in the next few years claim. 

I've been patient. I just figured Rob was getting all the data in order.

UNLV's record against:

UNR:  50-27

BSU: 13-13

CSU: 41-19

USU: 34-11

SDSU: 35-35

UNLV could forfeit 20 games in a row against UNR, USU, and CSU peasants and they still wouldn't catch up. 

Check head to head for the past 30 years.

23-23 but that is irrelevant. Head-to-head record is head-to-head record. It's OVERALL that counts. Using a convenient time frame to skew it in your favor is SMALL PP energy.

Nobody is arguing that the Rebel teams in the 70's and 80's weren't great teams.  Pick any time frame in the last 30 years and the results are the same.  UNLV has not been a better basketball school for 30 years and those are the facts.

One thing we know for sure, when it comes to slicing and dicing stats to make their team seem relevant, many of their fans are experts with a Ginsu knife.

What if he got a lot better?

We should have enough ball handlers that he doesn't have to play point.  I'd like him to be able to stick at the three.  If his ball handling improves then it would be really cool to have him as a point forward as a junior or late into his sophomore season.  Someone who can grab a rebound and push the ball up the floor.

EXACTLY 

WYOMING > UNLV 

Next excuse up to bat: Conference play doesn't matter. Getting to the final 4 with a 180 net rating is where the rubber meets the road.

I mean, yeah, conference play doesn't matter. And anyone who thinks that is a +++++ing loser. If you don't make it to the dance, your season wasn't great. It's as simple as that. Maybe you don't believe in that, but most of us do. Who cares if the Rebels lose every conference game, if they win the tournament to get into March Madness and win (a) game(s), that season was a success compared to winning every conference game and getting bounced in the first round of the Conference Tournament.  You should be using conference play to gauge what your team needs to do to win, not looking at it as the end all, be all of life.

That much is clear. No wonder why UNLV has been dragging the conference SOS and reputation in the mud. 

 

No fear though. According to Rob, this team will be in the final 4 in the next few years, so all these issues won't matter.

And how has this model been working out?

With 44 losses in the last 3 years, half the county could pull scoreboard over UNLV in this timeframe.

Its just too bad beating UNLV is worthless when it comes to Tourney Resume.
