    A little UNLV scouting . . .

    I went to the UNLV game last night against Portland. UNLV was trailing a majority of the game, even down by nine with a few minutes remaining in the second half. The Rebs ended up winning in OT on a last second layup.

    Here are a couple of observations about the Utes upcoming opponent.

    1. While Coach Rice has done a phenomenal job of recruiting high school kids and JC guys with lots of athleticism, he has been terrible at developing talent and maintaining team continuity. Each year it seems that over half the team transfers away or enters the draft only to go undrafted. This team is incredibly young, yet talented.

    2. Partly because of youth, this team is very streaky. The team seems undisciplined on defense and does not rebound well on either end. The Portland bigs were eating the offensive glass all night long setting up second chance points.

    3. Three main players to know and focus on:

    Cody Doolin: Graduate transfer point guard and the teams senior leader. He is a smart, pass first player; however, really asserted himself at the end of the game to pull the rebels ahead offensively.

    Rashad Vaughn: a future NBA guy. I'm not sure if he is polished enough to be a one and done, but he is a freshman blue chip freshman that can really score the ball. Because the team lacks flow on offense the ball often ends in his hands to create his own shot.

    Chris Wood: Sophomore big man, about 6 foot 11 and 140 pounds. Good offensive skill and is being coached away from his preferred outside shot. He was getting pushed around on the block and Portland bigs were getting entry passes deep on the block at will. He moves like Kyle Anderson, slow and almost lazy looking.

    Anyways, I feel the Utes are strong favorites here due to the lack of continuity and poor defense/rebounding. The team is loaded with talent though, and if they get going with easy looks and the home crowd shows up it could be close.

    His team went 1-3 vs the MWC, so he bases his pick on that little data point.

    Booker hit 197 yards, Kaelin Clay breaks a few big catches and runs back one punt return, DoMo has a Pick-6, Jared Norris has 16 tackles (5 for a loss), Nate Orchard cements his status as a Lottery Pick with 5 sacks, and Travis Wilson has the game of his life with 320 yds passing and 68 yds rushing with 2 TDs. Kenric Young and Delshawn McClellon show that we still have 'Southern Speed' at WR. CSU plays against their first serious defense of the year and get waffle stomped.

    Utah wins by 18.

    Best PR campaign for a crappy movie ever.

    There's no way Sony could have dreamed about this much publicity for their end of the year movie offerings.

    RE: Trevor Matich picked Colorado State to win. So we got that in our favor.

    Has anyone picked Utah (other than the Vegas line)?

    It will be interesting. In the two games CSU lost both opponents blitzed hard and CSUs QB played poorly from his back. Potato Zoobs and AFA are good teams this year but I doubt CSU has seen anything like Orchard and Dimick?

    My gut says Kyle has our guys ready for this business trip

    The Big Deal about it is that a major corporation got completely hacked and blackmailed.

    In some sense the "terrorists won" on this one.

    Sony should release the movie via Amazon.com or something. Hopefully Amazon has better security than Sony. My other marketing idea is to hire extra security for the theatres and then have it be a limited release movie, like for two weeks. The novelty and short-run aspect of it should draw a huge audience and at least pay for their production costs.

    Bronco will have a revelation that the AAC is the promised land

    Cougarboard then will spend years trying to convince itself the AAC is light years better than the MWC and better than most if not all P5 conferences.
