A good reminder for everyone. Anyone leaving UNLV is a lazy bum that is terrible and won't do well at any other school.  Any transfer or new recruit coming in had 6000 P5 offers and put the McDonalds in All American that will be an NBA All Star..

 

 

Perhaps this former Rebel - who never played for UNLV because of injuries - might change that bum narrative if he's healthy?  UC Riverside has quietly picked things up in recent years.  :hmmm:

Your athletic program sucks, fool. Keep +++++ing that chicken over 1990 though.

He didn’t play because he sucked.  After he didn’t get in a game by December, it was obvious he was never gonna play.

 Looks like conditioning issues more than anything else.

https://m.lasvegassun.com/news/2021/mar/24/donavan-yap-is-first-unlv-player-to-enter-transfer/

Martinez, a 6-foot-11 center, also did not play as a freshman, with a source attributing his lack of playing time to Martinez not being able to pass the team's regular conditioning tests during the season.

:shrug:

Sounds like a numbers game. Staff probably told Blake he won’t get as much playing time as he thought with someone coming in (probably Hamilton returning) hence the mutual agreement to part ways. 

I heard he got into some trouble, but who knows if it's true.

Caleb Grill- Honorary MWC Board  King of the World poster.....LOL

https://www.kansas.com/sports/college/big-12/article250634599.html

“I kind of want to get out of here,” Grill said. “We don’t really live in the nicest area of Vegas and it’s 18 hours away from home. The fan support out here is also brutal. I get ruthless (direct messages) from fans all the time that expect a little too much of us because they went to the Final Four in the 90s. They still expect that every year. People, in general, are just rude out here.”

But shouldn’t every player have those expectations? Players nowadays play for the name on the back of their jerseys. I prefer players who play for the name on the front and who expect to win.

I think the problem is fans like @ph90702 actually stalk these kids on social media and chew them out. To the point where their parents get involved.  Bad news... Creepy as well.

Players tend to be more realists than fans when it comes to things like winning the Natty.   Rubble fans are at best delusional and at worst clinically insane when it comes to basketball expectations. Witness this thread.  Over115 pages of nonsensical palaver about the 7th place team in a mediocre conference, who hired a known quantity assistant and 10 players promptly packed their shit at hit the road.

BUT!

Bringing in a series of B12 bench warmers and a "game changing" defender from high school and they're back on the Road To The Final Four!

More power to you guys I say.  Hope springs eternal and all that and places like these are the correct fora for being delusional nut cases. DM's to players, insulting them and calling them out crosses the line into crazy town.

Think the LV beat reporters will dig into it?  (joking)

Years ago LoboLair mentioned a rumour that Savon Goodman had done something that would end his days at UNLV.  I asked a local reporter about it... he said that he had heard rumblings but asked Rice's staff and they told him there was nothing to it.  In August there was an indictment for the arrest that had happened in May and was public record.

This isn't the case at all. You're just jealous like everyone that doesn't drink the Kool Aid.

I agree some Rebel fans can be a little over zealous, but you find that in every fan base. It’s not exclusive to Rebel fans. My point was more that Caleb came across as kind of a fragile whiney bitch.

You guys just troll amongst yourselves and all the time adding pages to this thread and then bitch about how many pages it has chalked up. 
 

200 pages...here we come.

Yeah, I have to agree with you. 

It's good material to use when messing with Vegas fans, but it was a bitch move on Caleb's part.  

I liked that kid too.  He worked hard in every game I saw him play, even when his teammates were just mailing it in.

Damn it I’m starting to think you’re not so bad, and I can’t have that. Say something mean right now!

So now you admit to stalking us UNLV fans on Twitter?!

I’m blocked by David Jenkins on Twitter.  His dad chewed me out, yet I didn’t make any personal attacks against his son.

I looked on the Las Vegas Justice Court website, and there’s nothing popping up for him.
