Re: Who are you playing OOC this season?

Nevada played at USC and Utah last year to get these home games.. I'm certain USU would be willing to play an H/H with either of them. I get why USC wouldn't want an H/H with USU, but Utah is **** and just wants to solidify its claim as the top athletic department in the state by avoiding other in-...

Re: Nevada Transfers

New UNLV coach was able to convince three UNLV players that had entered transfer portal to stay in Vegas. Wonder if Alford can convince any of these guys to stay in Reno?

Re: Way-Too-Early Top 25 for 2019-20 (ESPN)

Others I've seen:

Gary Parrish did not put us in his Top 25 and 1.

Starting the season ranked would be amazing. Anyone know when last time that has happened?

Re: Smith extension and raise

With the new coach at UNLV another Summit league guy making $1.4 million. USU needs to keep Smith happy that will take charter flights to 9 conference games, and a salary of at least $850, 000. Not only $1.4 for TJ, but the almost $1m for the buyout to SD State + whatever they have to pay Marv if h...

Re: MW Media Awards

I like Hutson and think he's a good coach, but not sure how he got one vote and that Smith wasn't unanimous? Is there a rule that prohibits the local media member from voting on their own team (i.e., the Utah State voter couldn't vote for any USU candidates)? That's the only way this makes sense.
