There is a big problem with this theory about Bobby Hauck building his UNLV football program in the same manner Brady Hoke has at San Diego State: It doesn’t make sense.
Disappointing. You would think UNLV football coaches might have stayed up on this whole fake-an-injury-when-your-guys-are-dead-tired strategy that seems to have grabbed onto college defenses across the country, or at least the ones playing Oregon.
A moment of pause here for good thoughts sent to Robert Herron, the Wyoming football player taken from Sam Boyd Stadium in an ambulance Saturday night with 1:49 remaining in what would be a loss to UNLV.
It might sound crazy today — you know, fresh off an embarrassing 55-7 loss to a Brigham Young football team best described as dead-flat average — but it wouldn’t be in UNLV’s best interest to stop playing the Cougars.
I liked the fake punt down 21-6 late in the second quarter from the 47-yard line of Texas Christian. I like trickery on Halloween Eve.
Social networks don’t define our lives anymore. They run them. That reality has placed the UNLV football career of junior wide receiver Phillip Payne in a tenuous position, the reported result of his Twitter account producing negative comments about a first-year coaching staff led by Bobby Hauck.
