    Gender reveals are getting ridiculous these days.

    Rebel Robert would fit right in to our post game threads!

    Trump is president.

    Hoiberg is a Husker.

    Browns might be somewhat competitive next season.

    TJ is a... Runnin' Rebel, ugh.

    Britain leaving the EU... or not.

    Cubs won a World Series.

    KD and Steph are on the same team.

    Pretty sure the world actually ended in 2012. We are in a really weird timeline. That, or the writers of "Planet Earth" decided to see how weird they could make things.

    This is from the Las Vegas Sun on March 18, 2019:

    "According to sources, UNLV has enough pledged money from program boosters to pay the next coach between $1.7 million and $2.8 million annually. That aligns with Reed-Francois’s statement during Friday’s press conference, when she said she had secured enough funding to make the next Runnin’ Rebels head coach the highest-paid coach in the Mountain West and among the highest paid in the Group of 5 conferences."

    I thought they were going for a bigger name, more established coach. Isn't hiring a coach that was dominating a small, very poor conference, what they did last time? Maybe it works out long term. I don't see more fans going to games in the short term as a result of this hire.

    On a positive note, the hire was made quickly so there is some time to recruit a little. I hope he can keep the aforementioned" : from the UNLV message board

    Good luck, T.J.
    Rebels are a different breed...

    I will put my dislike of UNLV aside and root for TJ to succeed there, just as long as we aren't going head-to-head for recruits.

    Isn't perspective wild? Many here say he would be our hire where they are not impressed?

    Good luck TJ and Alison and all their little ones!

    She was my favorite basketball player when I was in Ames. She always had a look on her face like she was looking for an *** to kick, and she usually found it.

    I am happy with Prohm, but TJ is still on the list if we ever need to go shopping again.

    We might not like it but I'm pretty sure the paychecks will clear and it's a step up from SDSU. With Daum gone, he's leaving at the right time. I've got a buddy whose son played for TJ up north and they have nothing but good things to say about him. They'll be sad to see him go but happy for his success so I'll do the same.

    Good luck TJ.

    Just crazy. We know his roots and what he brings to the table. They see the head coach at SDSU. Best of luck.

    Because he has history here. All of his past resume, except for a couple years at Washington, is here.

    To the average UNLV fan, he’s a guy coming from South Dakota.

    Happy for TJ. Assuming he got $10m+ for a total contract, that's life changing money. He's either successful and goes on to a bigger job in 4 years, or he goes back to being a big time assistant with a nice safety net in his bank account.

    For as long as Ive known TJ I cant be anything but happy for him and hope he succeeds....but on the other hand UNLV....it feels to me like Daum was leaving, he had an opportunity to get paid and get out of Brookings and took what step up he could into a tough situation. I hope he succeeds though !
