So the unthinkable happened last week, the UNLV Rebels, an 18 point underdog upset Hawaii in the Rebels home opener 40-20. I was on vacation in Denver and heard about it on national television and sports radio.
Fast forward to this week, UNLV was actually a 10-point favorite to Southern Utah of the FCS (think division 2).
The Rebels got routed by Southern Utah 41-16.
It could of been a close game, although UNLV committed 5 turnovers including 3 interceptions that were returned for touchdowns.
Sure, UNLV looked horrible earlier this season in losing to Washington State 59-7.
To go down like bitches to a Football Championship Subdivision team, that's just bad.
Who knows why we gave Coach Bobby Hauck a 2 year contract extension that puts him under the reigns through the 2014 season.
This sure isn't Montana.
Hauck, who previously coached at Montana, leading the Grizzlies to an 80-17 record in 7 seasons with playoff appearances each season and 4 trips to National Championship games and losses in each.
His record at UNLV is a dismal 3-14.
I bet Bishop Gorman, the top High School Football team in Nevada and one of the nations best could even beat the Rebels.
Especially after the way they played against Southern Utah.
I am glad I don't have season tickets, at least there is one thing for Rebel fans to look forward to....
