@chrisaaron702 Khem could really improve his draft status by staying another year, unfortunately that is probably not the case for Roscoe.  From a team prospective I think that with Khem and Chris on the front line along with either one of the incoming freshman or JK could be okay.

@mofly We'll see if Coach Neal can keep it up once he doesn't have Alford players.  Not saying he won't but the cupboard was full when he started.

@gumby2323 As fans we my think that next year would be a make or break year but there is no indication that is what the AD has in mind. I think that asking for a new better coach is easier said than done.  Everyone thinks if the position opened that Reggie would came running and would be an immediate success.  I hope they are right, I'll be supporting the team either way.

@mofly For someone that is saying UNLV deserves better it sure sounds like it's not your team, so why do you care.  How much did you give UNLV before Rice was the coach?  It sounds like you want a new coach but won't back it with your wallet.

@binzer777 "Theus was a good guy in the community?  When do you think Reggie lived in our community after he left school?  As for your race card it is pretty common knowledge that after the interview that Theus was given, was that Dave was all about UNLV and Reggie was all about Reggie.

@gumby2323 @binzer777 There is no indication that there will be less pressure for him at South Florida.  They are already moving in the right direction with their football team and I think that they want a NCAA tournament team every year just like we do.  If they think he can bring in top recruits the pressure to win will be the same.  They have good basketball schools in that conference.

@djonian81 @moflyMofly, it would be interesting to know exactly at what level you support the program.  Are you a season ticket holder, RAF donor or just someone that watches the games on TV.  I guess I'd like to know if your money backs your opinions or if it is easy to be critical when you have no skin in the game.

If Kendall leaves he has no one to blame for short playing time this year than himself.  He was given the opportunity to be the starting point guard and played himself out of those minutes.  He would show that he is a true character guy if he worked hard, get better and earn that job or the off-guard spot by the quality of your play.

Surprising that the excellently coached SDSU was taken to overtime by such underwhelming team like NMST.  I'm shocked that the best coach on the west coast, possibly in the nation, could allow his players to not blow out the Aggies.  You know that Fisher has taken SDSU from a nothing program to a consistent sweet 16 team (oh, wait that is not right).

@shewdogs @SFRebel To be successful in the college game you have to be able to recruit and game coach.  I don't think Max was ever much of a recruiter but he has a vast winning experience as a head coach in high school and prep school.  His only head jobs in college came on the heals of a Billy Bayno firing.

I think that anyone that has knowledge of UNLV's history wants Stacy to step up and take a bigger roll on this staff.  For God's sake he had a 10+ year NBA career he must have picked up something along the way.  He played for better coaches than CDR has ever coached with so the knowledge fountain has to have washed over him.  There were many times during the last three years that he looks totally disinterested in what is happening on the court or in the time-out huddle.  He wasn't a real vocal leader as a player but I don't think you can be effective when you're that passive.  Does anyone know exactly what his responsibilities are on this staff?  Since he was a player development coach on the Denver staff I would think that it is working on the player's individual skills and do some recruiting but I don't think I've ever read for sure what his duties include.

@shewdogs I guess it was just luck that the team has 71 wins in his three years, including wins over coaches that I'm sure commentators on this site would love coaching UNLV.

@ELJeffe  He will not be the next Aztec coach as Fisher has an assistant that has been with him a long time that is already the coach in waiting. I do agree Justin's departure hurt as it gave Heath a voice on defensive and you have seen that poor result.

@AaronReed1  True, or Fisher has a conference player of the year at point guard which helps get the team into the final sets they need. Rice needs a true point guard and much of the end of game havoc goes away.

@gumby2323 Based on your argument I don't see how you can't be asking for a change in the Head Coaching position?  The question about Coach Neal will come in the years to follow,  just like CDR did in his first year he is working with someone else's players who are experienced.  My biggest disappointment this year was there wasn't a single set play the was a high percentage conversion when the team was struggling.


I definitely think that Schroyer needs to be replaced as the defense this year was not good.  The guards had no ability to keep players in front of them which caused our bigs to constantly provide help defense which opened up the offensive boards to the opponents.  If we would have used a zone earlier in the year we could have had a front line of Birch, Smith and Wood and dominated the boards which would have allowed us to run more than we did.  I think KO is a 12-15 minute a game player but I'm in the minority because everyone loves the fact that he is a local product and has a compelling back story.  As part of the defense or guards don't rebound well enough to play with 3 guards.  

On offense we simply don't have enough players that can shoot/make the 15-20 foot shot and our post players are not dominate enough to simply dump it down to them for an easy conversion.

Needless to say it has been a frustrating year but I can't wait for next year just because it will be a new mix of players and watching each team develop is part of the fun.

Yea....everyone in the stands could tell after about 3 games that Katin's minutes and shot selection should have a pretty short leash but CDR was all in on that kid.  What a mistake.
